Men ‘Calling Yourself Feminist Is Invading a Movement That Was Not Made for You’

Posted on | June 4, 2015 | 64 Comments

Feminist Tumblr makes explicit the movement’s anti-male ideology:

Feminism as a movement is not about prioritizing the feelings of cis men as above or equal to our own. You are welcome to be an ally for us. But calling yourself feminist is invading a movement that was not made for you and in which your voice is not necessary and often not wanted. It is male privilege to think you are entitled to join and gain a title in any club, group or movement you want. I’ve noticed that cis men who insist on being called “feminists” rather than “feminist allies” put their own feelings and need for legitimacy/validation above the actual goals and priorities of feminism. Feminist can be used as an adjective/descriptive term for men, like “I met a guy who seemed very feminist.” Or “He has some strong feminist beliefs”. A man could say “I believe in feminism”. But to adopt the title of feminist is appropriation of a movement that has been built on and by the suffering of women and other people who experience gender-based oppression. Basically, if a man says he’s a feminist and, when asked by us to call himself a “feminist ally” instead, he refuses, he proves that he doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings, and he has no right to be involved in feminism in any way.

Feminism means: Men have no rights. Period.

“Feminism is a totalitarian doctrine of hatred. It cannot be reformed, nor can it be appeased. Feminism is an ideology that demands war against human nature, and the question is whether we can stop this deadly menace before it destroys our civilization.”
Robert Stacy McCain, April 13

Radical equality requires the negation of liberty, because only the oppressed have rights, and their oppressors have none. The feminist worldview requires that any apparent inequality between males and females must be condemned as injustice. All men are members of the oppressor class, benefiting from and participating in the victimization of women (all women) under a system of male supremacy. To speak of men’s “rights,” according to feminist ideology, is to justify inequality, and to assert that women deserve to be treated as inferior.

This is feminism’s formula for insanity, a totalitarian theory that denies the reality of sexual difference and seeks evidence of patriarchal oppression in every individual decision (because “the personal is political”). Once this principle of Feminist Consciousness is grasped, we see why The First Rule of Feminism is SHUT UP!

“Feminist consciousness is consciousness of victimization . . . to come to see oneself as a victim.”
Sandra Lee Bartky, Femininity and Domination: Studies in the Phenomenology of Oppression (1990)

Feminism means men have nothing to say, because men have no valid knowledge. Whatever a man believes is wrong, whatever a man does is oppressive, and anything a man says is sexist. Therefore, SHUT UP!

It is especially important that feminists should be empowered to insult men, and to ridicule men who resent such insults:

Some feminist on the internet: Haha white boys are gross, it’s funny how they think they can dance or their opinions matter lol
No white guy ever: See this is okay because she has a right to express herself under free speech. Plus if I can’t laugh at myself, who CAN I laugh at? Also I’m sure she was just kidding and doesn’t really believe that, I should give her the benefit of the doubt.

You see how her chip-on-the-shoulder resentments are expressed as an ostentatiously “clever” reversal: Feminists are accused of being over-sensitive and humorless, and so therefore — har-de-har-harthe joke is on you, “white guy,” whom she accuses of being too stupid to “get” her cleverness, so that you don’t even know whether she’s “just kidding” or whether she “really believes” the hateful things she says about you.

You know who excels at this kind of manipulation, smokescreening, gaslighting and psychological projection? Narcissistic sociopaths.

“Misandry Mermaid,” as she calls herself, is a warped and sadistic personality who derives perverse pleasure from imagining the humiliation and mental pain she endeavors to inflict on males. Men deserve this humiliation, the feminist believes, because men are her inferiors and have unjustly refused to recognize her superiority. The man who refuses to kneel before her in worshipful adoration has deprived her of what is rightly hers, and the man who dares speak in his own defense thereby proves himself a misogynist, by justifying his existence, which oppresses her. Any cruelty the feminist inflicts on a man is social justice, and he cannot be permitted to say a word in reply.

“Forever Bathing in Your Male Tears,” you see.

Most people cannot understand Feminist Logic™ because it is so difficult to imagine hating anyone as much as feminists hate men.

    Words mean what they want them to mean. If you insist upon meanings established by historical usage then you’re a hater.

    I’m guessing it’s supposed to be pronounced “cis-het” and not “ci-shet.” Though you could be a pretentious jackhole and assume Continental airs, saying “Cee-SHAY.” I need a striped shirt and beret, but I draw the line at smoking stinky Froggy cigarettes.

    But as it’s an arbitrarily created word I would pronounce it in whichever manner creates objections. Since I am never likely to be within earshot of these failed specimens it’s not likely the need will ever arise.

    Well, they would if they could actually construct a treehouse. A fort in the living room made from blankets draped over a few chairs is probably the extent of their engineering skills.

    Over twenty years ago I finally bought my own land and remarked to my mother that it was comforting that there was a piece of this Earth belonging to me. Even if all I ever did was put up a treehouse it would still be a place of my own. So then a few months later, when I got back from overseas my mother is fidgiting and snickering and suggesting that I go take a look at my property. Okay, mom.

    She had my dad build, yeah, a treehouse. The crowning touch was the sign she made: “NO GRILS ALOUD!!!” A nice touch was that the “R” was backwards. It was right out of Calvin and Hobbes.

    “Feminist can be used as an adjective/descriptive term for men, like “I met a guy who seemed very feminist.” Or “He has some strong feminist beliefs”. A man could say “I believe in feminism”. ”

    There’s a word for such “Men”. That word is “Weiner”.

    Alas, there are plenty of manginas out there that think they can ingratiate themselves and get a little action.

    Strange that those of us who really did survive abuse don’t live in that past. We overcome and go forward.
