Female, anti feminist, egalitarian.
I'm against sexism of all kinds but there are plenty of blogs whose sole focus is on women but very few even recognise that sexism does not equal Man against Woman.
This blog focuses on Misandry: The hatred, discimination or distrust of men and boys. Pointing out the representation of men in the media, deliberate misinformation/misrepresentation, the demonisation of men in our society and the imbalance this causes.
Rather than think of ourselves as in competition we should cater to everyone as needed.
If you think I'm being unfair to other women just know that I consider all sides of an argument, normally I prefer to be the fence. But for the purposes of this blog I have taken a side so apologies if this offends you.
I answer all asks privately unless otherwise requested or anonymous.
It’s easier to hide for one. You get more build up and it feels more plausible and you can visualise it however you’d like. I’ve never even considered reading a romance book, I find love stories with random characters tedious and predictable. Any stories I read with the odd bit of smut is not written around the smut, it’s a story first.
I’ve never actually properly watched a porn film, I’d probably just start laughing, I’m not the type to immediately be attracted to someone either so it seems way too impersonal to watch something so personal. If that makes sense. My partner finds it funny but boring, another friend fell asleep when his female flatmates tried to get him into it, most of my male friends and family seem to have no interest. They also hate football. While most of my female friends and family are more into porn and football.
No not that F-bomb. Feminism. It’s spreading to our inner city schools, with some young people thinking it should be taught on during class. Radhika Sanghani explores the rise of the teen feminists
I’m thinking of emigrating.

Teen feminists are generally just awful, anyway. I avoided them and the gay-straight alliance kids like the plague.
It’s really not taught in the south. I’m 17 and I just learned about feminist literature my sophomore year. This is a big deal.
Don’t undermine steps that are a step forward no matter how small.
You have a point. This is coming from my own experience, living in northern Illinois (a “blue” state). My bad.
I’m confused. Why are GSA kids bad?
The ones at my school were mostly pretentious straight kids who wanted a gay best friend, and like three actually gay kids who were biphobic as hell.
Not pleasant people to be around.
Hello hi yes I am from Texas and I have been learning about feminism since elementary school. You learn about feminism and its place in American history in most classes that have to do with history. I’ve been in history classes since the fourth or fifth grade, and we learned about feminism every. single. year.
I ‘dunno what state that other southerner is from, but I most definitely received an education on feminism from an early age, and so did most southerners I know. It was shoved down our throats every year. That’s not just a northern thing.
Funny thing is, they only taught us about the good things feminism has done and never, ever the bad. I had to find those out through research and other anti-SJWs.
Basically, most schools promote the hell out of feminism while conveniently sweeping its glaring flaws under the rug. Even Texas, arguably one of the most conservative states, does it.
It was so different when I was a kid and this is why this crap is so disgusting:
I’m from Manchester, England. I didn’t even know what feminism was until I was around 21 years old. I am now 25. I knew of the suffragettes and they bothered me. We never believed we were oppressed and hated, in fact we thought we had it pretty good, particularly the girls. Any problems we did have came with the teacher, gradually things changed and became more sexist but the subjects it would have affected were ones I hadn’t chosen so I’m talking 2002/3 here.
In history class we learned that millions of men died in the Great War, we were taught about the women who actually worked during the time where feminists insist they were not allowed, we learned about conscription and saw photos of boys as young as 14 who served on the front lines, we learned about the women who worked in the prisons and force fed the suffragettes on hunger strike, we even learned of the white feather campaign and watched The Four Feathers, when we heard “man-made” we knew it meant HUman made. There were a lot of biases against boys, false accusations against male teachers, harsher punishments for boys, kids would punch and kick some of the male teachers and he would be treated with suspicion while even swearing at a female teacher for any reason was met with suspension if male, asked about “problems at home” if female. And I used to fiercely protest all that without knowing why such differences existed and never getting any answers, but we were never taught what feminism was, let alone force fed the ideology.
Any gender-based hate was in their minds, not in our books. Never have I missed school… at all, actually. I don’t know how it’s got so bad so quickly.
I think it’s pretty much anywhere feminism has taken root, I don’t really do much of anything that involves people too often but when I do and that subject comes up I hear the same crap as she was getting.
It’s amazing that just saying that I want to help male victims get people saying that I want to make it legal for men to beat their wives, that I hate women, that I want to close women’s shelters. That just wanting to help someone means all that. How the bloody hell did they make that leap? What twisted logic did they use to come up with all that bollocks? And it’s everywhere. Sarkeesian was praising some programme for having a character do exactly that. I think it was in the “straw feminist" (debunking video not original) one. It might be in that one but not in the debunking one, I don’t know but I like his responses. Some might find it offensive but it’s so over the top.
That is very significant, if someone in Canada had said that they’d be burned at the stake. I’ll post it but here’s the article.
Since bigots decided to tie men’s day with toilet day, I think it’s only fair. They’d probably take it as a compliment though.
Predictably enough, the focus is on how much we as a society hate women and elevate men. Ugh.
But maybe you can find an article or a post that celebrates the achievements of someone who happens to be female without shitting on men in the process. Without going on about victimhood, without claims that go completely against each other (if women were not allowed to do something or if the ~patriarchy~ was holding them back why were they celebrated at all, least of all back then?), and especially not making every single male in existence the enemy because of a bad childhood experience. Not one of my mother’s victims despises women, hates all women, see them as conspirators in a master plan to abuse all males or anything like that. Yet every article I see on a woman from history who achieved much, they write about how hard she had it, how men kept her down, how men wanted to control her and did not like being shown up by a female when if you read what she herself has written, that she loved the men in her life, that her husband/brother/father supported her or even helped her achieve what she did, writing that hateful crap in her name is nothing short of slander.
So see if you can find something good about women that doesn’t feel the need to drag down men in order to do it, because they imply that women are not able to do it without that, that a woman cannot look good without men looking bad. It’s their either/or fallacy again and like most feminist things, it’s insulting all round.
