These silly feminists don’t understand us men at all. It is odd because their whole raison de etre is all about hating us and yet they don’t have the faintest understanding of us. They have written endless documents about men and spent decades lecturing the world about us, and they don’t even have the faintest understanding of us.
As a Leftist, what makes me sad is really sad is that the only people who really understand men are conservatives. Isn’t that sad?
The Right understands men, especially the Cultural Right. The Manhattan Institute, who I despise, has written some superb articles about the Manosphere and how feminism created this whole Manosphere Backlash Nightmare in the first place. They get it. I hate them, but they got the memo.
My mother understands men. Her support for feminism is odd in such an older women (born 1932), but in her case as with so many feminists, it all boils down to revenge.
Feminism is revenge against men.
Feminism started out as equal rights but it quickly evolved into revenge as all Identity Politics groups do at some point. For instance, Black rights groups are much more motivated by revenge against Whites than equal rights for Blacks these days. This is because they have evolved beyond equal rights are now into the move towards Supremacy.
No Identity Politics group wants equal rights. But they all start out this way, and in this aspect of their evolution, they are correct and deserve and gain a lot of support. But they quickly move beyond that into revenge and the drive for supremacy.
Honestly, any Identity Politics group advocating mere equality is going to be left in the dust by the groups advocating domination and supremacy, as the latter will outcompete the former.
All women from my mother’s generation understand men. However, some of these older women are feminists. I know some of them.
These older feminists have a vengeance mindset:
Men hurt women for many years. The only way to get back to the equality of a zero state is to counter the male traditional abuse with vengeance based abuse of men.
At some possible future point, the abuses of each sex by the other will all balance out, and then we will arrive at the zero state everyone really wants, but this probably will not happen because once groups get a vengeance mindset, they seem to want to hold onto their retaliatory tactics forever. In other words, in order to sign a peace treaty and quit fighting, Identity Politics would have to admit that they are no longer victims.
However, at some point, former victims will become rulers. This is the phenomenon known as When Victims Rule. Even when victims transform into rulers, they are loath to give up their victimhood. The Jews are a classic case of When Victims Rule. The worst thing you can do to a Jew is take away his victimhood. This is a dangerous thing to do, and the Jew will do anything, possibly even kill, to retain his cherished abused status.
I don’t like the ideology of these older feminists, but they get it. Their ideology is:
Yes, women are insane, but so what? They still have a right to repress men because…:
1. Fairness (victims have a right to victimize their abusers to “balance things out”)
2. Puritanism (vengeance against male sexuality)
3. Women got their feelings hurt (vengeance for assaults)
Number 3 is especially important. If you study female psychology, you realize that the worst thing in the world is for a female to get her feelings hurt. Of course they get their feelings hurt every day of their lives, but no matter. It is still the worst of cardinal sins if you are the one who hurt her feelings.
Worse, when this ultimate sin has been committed against a woman, she has a right to use any weapons at her disposal to retaliate, so great was this crime. All the rules of war are off. Why? She got her feelings hurt.
The most base, amoral, sleazy, evil and even criminal tactics are all approved. Why? She got her feelings hurt.
That crime gives the mandate to remove all rules from the subsequent retaliation. Many women have told me that they have a right to engage in the most abusive tactics towards people they hate.
You would not believe how many women have told me that they had a right to make up complete lies about their enemies. Now this is something I will never do. There is nothing worse than false accusation. I will not do this to my worst enemy. Why should I? If he is really as evil as I say he is, I shouldn’t have to make up things about him. Right? The record of evil should speak for itself.
And if I have to make up things about my worst enemy, this implies that he was not such a bad person after all, right? If so, then why do I hate him? Why is my worst enemy a good person? What does that say about me that I make enemies out of good people? See what I am getting at?
You never make a false accusation about any human ever for any reason. I would not make up a false accusation about Hitler! Why should I? His record of evil is bad enough, why bother about making up lies about his evil when the facts should suffice?
There are other problems. If you hate someone, it is usually based on, “I am a good person and they are a bad person.” I am convinced that this what most interpersonal feuds are about. But when you make up lies about your enemies, you’re no longer on the good side of the ledger. Now you are being a bad person too. And how can a bad person attack a bad person on a good vs evil basis? See? Moral warriors must retain the high ground or lose all standing in their crusade.
Hi, I am a bad person and I want to fight this other bad person because he is evil.
Why would anyone ally with you on that basis?
And warriors need allies as otherwise wars are lonely affairs.
I would add that the women of my mother’s generation didn’t seem to like sex very much. The less women like sex, the more they want to stick it to men because of:
Women who really like to have sex with men don’t want to stick it to us very much because they figure the result will be less sex for them, and women who love men are typically cock addicts. I am serious. They are addicted. They cannot keep away from the dick. Even many feminists are like this. So one of the requirements to be a feminist jihadi is to either not like sex with men very much or to be a clueless fool, a hungry person who is eliminating their own food supply.
If you talk to any woman from a 3rd World country, they understand men implicitly.
All men from 3rd World countries understand men completely.
The guys in the Manosphere are sleazy misogynists and I hate them, but of course they understand men. They know us too well, and this is part of the problem with that movement.
Traditional society has always understood men.
But feminists don’t even get us at all.
