One of my school’s forums made a thread asking about what some of the male-identifying students have experienced in terms of misandry and what their definition of the term was. Needless to say, it wound up being a shitshow thanks to one dude who attempted to blame women for all of the…
By definition, a “patriarchy” only looks after male interests since it’s a male dominated society. Again, by definition, nothing should ever work against a man’s favor in a “patriarchy”. The simple fact that men have issues proves there isn’t a patriarchy, which is why it would be potentially damaging to feminism’s tenets to admit the injustices committed against men.
the majority of us do admit this, though. so what do you believe exists instead, if not a patriarchy?
Wow, a non hostile response? Okay, here goes.
The patriarchy is nothing more than propaganda like a vast majority of feminist tenets. It should be acknowledged for what it is, but addressing it only leads to claims of mysogyny and spells an end to any discourse about the subject. I understand that people are afraid to question their beliefs, but I’m amazed that absolutely no discussion is taking place from both sides of the topic, at least not peacefully. Humans are unfortunately just as stubborn as they are misinformed, and a select few of us are skeptical enough to change our belief system. We all want to be right, but obviously, we can’t all be.
Anywho, what I do believe is at work is a radical political agenda to transfer wealth and power since women make up the majority of voters in the U.S. and the rest of the first world. So, what better way to advance your political career than to cater to the majority of voters by any means necessary, INCLUDING outright violating the constitution (VAWA).
Ok wait, allow me to rephrase this so I’m totally clear on what you’re saying; you believe that it is in fact women in power, behind the scenes pulling the strings and controlling societal beliefs? Or that it is a mix of (wealthy privileged) men and women, but they are catering to the majority of voters, which are women?
If that were true, I couldn’t imagine the statistics of (unconstitutional) laws made against women’s health alone (this year) would be anywhere near what they are. I focus mainly on reproductive rights, which is why that’s jthe first example that comes to my mind as to why I don’t think that belief (which, like I said, I could be wrong about and am waiting for clarification) is correct.
And no, just because I advocate intersectional feminism doesn’t mean I’m automatically going to be hostile toward someone I seem to disagree with. You don’t learn shit from anyone if you’re too busy calling each other names and yelling ‘WRONG WRONG WRONG’ though I’m aware that’s what the radfems do. Hurts the cause more than it helps.
For someone who focuses on reproductive rights, it puzzles me that you would even question who the law favors amongst us both.
