The Anti-Male Feminism of @abzdafab: Negating the Opinions of Fathers

Posted on | October 12, 2017 | 2 Comments


Men who believe in the inferiority of women are called “sexists.”

Women who believe in the inferiority of men are called “feminists.”

Abigail Shirley (@abzdafab on Twitter) is a feminist who is editor of the website Fem 2.0, and her expression of anti-male prejudice is an excellent example of why Americans generally loathe feminism.

“Dear Men, Please remove the phrase ‘as a husband
and/or a father of daughters’ from your vocabulary.
Women exist outside your bubble.”

That probably offends you, but why does it offend you?

Because it negates male experience, per se, seeking to impose silence on half the human race with regard to the experiences of the other half.

Feminists do not hesitate to criticize male behavior, yet they insist that no man should be allowed to criticize female behavior. Nor do feminists permit men to invoke their experience as fathers or husbands when addressing the problems of women. (Ms. Shirley’s tweet was obviously directed at men commenting on the Harvey Weinstein scandal.)

Feminism is an ideology that privileges female experience as a basis of authority, while negating the value of men’s experiences. Male opinions have no value, according to feminist theory, because men do not have the experience necessary to speak of women’s interests. Feminism is a totalitarian movement based on the belief that women’s interests are the only interests that matter — “social justice” as a zero-sum-game mentality that condemns males as oppressors and enemies of women.

“Women are an oppressed class. Our oppression is total, affecting every facet of our lives. . . .
“We identify the agents of our oppression as men. . . . All men receive economic, sexual, and psychological benefits from male supremacy. All men have oppressed women.”

Redstockings, “Manifesto,” 1969

“Men . . . are the enemies and the oppressors of women. . . . Both the male role and the female role must be annihilated. . . .
“The pathology of oppression can only be fully comprehended in its primary development: the male-female division. . . . The sex roles themselves must be destroyed.”

“The Feminists: A Political Organization to Annihilate Sex Roles,” 1969, in Radical Feminism, edited by Anne Koedt, et al. (1973)

“Men are the enemy. Heterosexual women are collaborators with the enemy. . . .
“We see heterosexuality as an institution of male domination, not a free expression of personal preference.”

Leeds Revolutionary Feminists, 1981

“Sexuality, then, is a form of power. Gender, as socially constructed, embodies it, not the reverse. Women and men are divided by gender, made into the sexes as we know them, by the social requirements of heterosexuality, which institutionalizes male sexual dominance and female sexual submission.”
Catharine MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (1989)

“We regard our personal experience, and our feelings about that experience, as the basis for an analysis of our common situation,” the Redstockings collective declared in their famous 1969 manifesto. “We cannot rely on existing ideologies as they are all products of male supremacist culture.” Feminism rejects every other system of belief — in science, politics, religion or law — as invalid, because such beliefs are contaminated by “male supremacist culture.” Only women’s experience and feelings can serve as a basis for analysis, and male experience is irrelevant to that analysis because men are the enemy. This is why it is false to say that feminism is a movement about “equality,” because feminist theory is based on a total contempt for males.

Abigail Shirley’s derogation of men’s experience — the insulting assertion that fathers have no right to speak in defense of their own daughters — is a perfect example of feminism’s anti-male ideology. There can be no commonality of interests between men and women, according to the zero-sum-game calculus of feminist theory in which everything that men say or do is always wrong, simply because they are male.

And now, speaking as a father of daughters . . .







Would any father want his daughter to join a collection of perverted lunatics masquerading as a political movement? That’s what feminism is, as everyone with two eyes and a brain can see for themselves.

What I want for my daughters is the same thing I want for my sons: To be happy and successful, to be respectable and admirable people, to live according to the Christian ethic of the Golden Rule — and feminism is utterly incompatible with those goals. The feminist movement attracts selfish and immoral women, who seek to avoid personal responsibility by blaming their failures and unhappiness on “patriarchy.”


Feminists are proponents of the Culture of Death, advocates of promiscuity and abortion. Feminism is not merely anti-male, but also anti-motherhood, anti-Christian and ultimately, anti-American.

These are not opinions, but facts. The truth about feminism can be documented by quotations from feminists themselves. For some reason, feminists get angry when I quote them. Quotation is “harassment,” because they don’t want to be held accountable for their words.
