Feminists vs. Feminazis
Like most causes that start out with good intentions, feminism today has split into two branches: rational feminism and misandric feminism (misandry is the hatred of males). Rational feminism can be defined as "belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes" and going by that definition, I'm a feminist. Misandric feminism can be defined as "belief that men are misogynistic, chauvinistic, greedy, selfish, nature-destroying assholes who prefer to resolve conflicts with violence and would gladly rape a woman if they could get away with it." Only deranged, bitter women adhere to this sort of "feminism". It's really more like feminazism. Rational feminism is about equality, not about demonizing men. Feminazis have crossed the line of equality into misandry. They believe men are a plague upon this Earth and if the planet were ruled by women, we'd be living in Utopia. Some quotes by famous feminazis posing as feminists are below:
"Maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples. The male is completely egocentric, trapped inside himself, incapable of empathizing or identifying with others, or love, friendship, affection of tenderness. [...] He is a half-dead, unresponsive lump, incapable of giving or receiving pleasure or happiness" [...] "To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a walking dildo." -Valerie Links, S.C.U.M. Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men)
"All men are rapists and that's all they are."More quotes can be found here.
-Marilyn French, Author; (later, advisor to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)
"Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience."
-Catherine Comin, Vassar College. Assistant Dean of Students.
"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig."
-Andrea Dworkin; from her book Ice and Fire .
"I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act"
-Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.
True Feminists are a Rare Breed
Since feminism is about equality, a true feminist should protest not only against the unfair treatment of women, but the unfair treatment of men as well. Most feminists are not very honest with themselves when it comes to this sort of thing. If a proposed law will give women more rights than men, I think most feminists would support it. They would justify the unfairness with something like "Yes it's unfair but that's okay because it makes up for all the unfair treatment of women in the past." That type of thinking is wrong because it embraces the irrational and immoral idea of inherited sin. Essentially, those women are saying "Your group treated my group unfairly in the past, therefore it's okay for my group to treat your group unfairly today." You might as well pass a law today that bans white people from sitting at the front of a bus to make up for such discrimination against black people in the past. That would be utterly immoral and irrational. White men like me had nothing to do with anyone's unfair treatment. Why should we be punished for the moral crimes committed by other white men long ago? I never supported them and I wasn't even alive back then.
Feminists Approve of Sexist Laws that Favor Women
Many feminists remain silent when courts rule in a woman's favor only because she's female. When it comes to awarding child custody, the excuse "Women are naturally better at taking care of kids" is just as unfair as dealing with an interracial couple and awarding custody to the white parent because "Whites are naturally better at taking care of kids" Since the father was born male, he can't see his kids as often as the mother. He's placed at a legal disadvantage only because of his gender. That's sexism any way you slice it, and it's legally enforced. The typical response to this from most feminists is something like this: "Oh quit your whining! You men ruled the world for thousands of years and you've oppressed women for centuries. It's about time we got more rights than you." Again, this reeks of inherited sin. I've never ruled over anyone and I've never oppressed anyone. Why should my rights be trampled just because someone of my gender did bad things to women in the past? That's like punishing a random German man for the crimes of Hitler.
Why aren't feminists protesting alimony laws? Laws that give an ex-wife $50,000/month in alimony payments because that's how much she needs to maintain the lifestyle she's "accustomed" to. She was a hairdresser earning $12.50/hr before she met a wealthy movie actor. After being with him for a couple of years she has grown accustomed to yachts and mansions and Ferraris. But for some reason, even after they divorce he still has to continue to finance her luxurious way of life! The injustice of this law amazes me. Essentially, she is using the courts to legally rob a man of $50,000/month! How could anyone, male or female, allow such an absurd law to pass? And to borrow from Chris Rock, what about the man's alimony? What if he was "accustomed" to having sex with her every night? Will the court direct her to appear in his bedroom for that? After all, he's accustomed to sex with her and we shouldn't deprive people of what they're accustomed to, right?
