A lot of generalizing and finger pointing there.
I think the point the OP was making (which he mentioned several times) about Feminism was largely about the most modern form of it...not first and
second wave which he stated clearly.
Im all for women's rights and a strong, vibrant, beautiful, wise woman. I come from a family where on both sides the women were highly educated, many
of them went to UC Berkeley as far back as pre-depression.
There is nothing sexier than a mysterious and gorgeous woman that challenges my intellect, can laugh and make me laugh too, doesnt mind turning a
wrench, and knows how to love and care. Admittedly, that is largely how I am, albeit with a penis instead. I may show it differently, but at the core
my soul mate and I are of a kind.
It all comes down to our subjective mindset and perceptions of these labels like femininity and feminism etc.
In my mind, my ideal partner is a woman that is kind of a combination of old school and first wave feminist inspired, meaning a chick that can turn a
wrench and get dirty every now and again, but then kiss my boo boo after she kisses the kids good night because lets face it, im kind of a big kid
Work is work, and if youre smart enough and able bodied to do the work, well, why not? Shoudlnt be held against the person whether they do or dont.
Thats my slant.
The thing I agree with regarding the expressions by the OP is about the newest form of feminism, and it is not to be confused with the many young
ladies that adhere to the original forms of feminism.
Some gals, who i actually ultimately wish nothing but the best for, adhere to a distorted world view, particularly towards ALL men, and are obsessive
about it. They often come off as highly HIGHLY abrasive, and god forbid you question or challenge their views or opinions, which is a massive red flag
imho, as i was once like that and it was generally a very bad thing.
One of my best buddies lived with this chick that, bless her heart she meant well, but she was a self professed feminist and she embodied exactly what
the OP talked about. She would try to hide it, but between her daily social media postings about "ENDING THE PATRIARCHY" OR " END THE OPPRESSION" and
her rants about how men (in general) are sniveling inferior minded pigs that just threw their weight around to get the upper hand. She would cry "ego
maniac!" whenever anyone with a penis seemed confident or forthright with conviction, yet she herself would constantly talk over and interrupt men,
scoffing at everything they say, not realizing that SHE was the ego maniac, all the while looking on with kind eyes and open ears to you, as long as
you were a female...
Many other young women like her too, their mentality isnt about creating a strong, vibrant, wise woman...it is about creating a hate-filled, hive mind
of degenerates that want to do the exact same things to their target group as they claim have been done to them personally (dominate and oppress).
This extends way out of the distorted feminist's point of view (again, not to be confused with legit feminists), as it applies to men and women the
world over, due to various groups they identify with and the subsequent application of a victim-mentality/inferiority complex to themselves and the
group, furthering their desires to "get even, and then some" even if it means calling it "equality" when in reality, its about revenge and domination.
Painfully so, their ire and behaviors are often used against totally innocent people that neither they nor even their ancestors did anything remotely
close to what the "oppressed" party is claiming...that person just happens to be a man and fits the bill of the description of their "oppressors."
Do you see where this is going? It turns into a never ending cycle of innocent people being grouped and generalized simply because of their sex, race,
religion, which in turn causes them or their loved ones heartache, which often turns THEM into these vengeful assholes, who then generalize and attack
their totally innocent "oppressors" and round and round the feedback loop of delusion and insanity goes...
