I wonder how feminists will react to this
Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs
Actually this is a very common idea among feminists
It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.
If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL
I think the point he was trying to make is that there are too many “feminists” who will completely ignore a point whether it is for feminism or against simply because a male said it.
Then don’t fucking call them feminists, because they’re clearly not. They’re giving feminism a bad rep, and so is he for pretending that “this is the real face of feminism.” That’s literally the root of the entire feminism argument — baby assholes calling themselves feminists without knowing what it actually is, and whiny assholes blindly willing to believe them. You can roll shit in glitter but it’s still shit.
The definition of the word is changing, and that sucks, because it’s such an important word and important part of history, but people are still confusing themselves and each other. Hell, no one even has to say “feminists who ignore the point,” they can just do what you did and say “feminists” in quotation marks and everyone will know who the subject is.
"I don’t need feminism" more like "I don’t know what feminism is because no one told me the truth and everyone around me is convinced it’s just hatred."
Toxic Masculinity is something I speak about a lot.
