I get it. I understand their reasoning for thinking so.
I disagree, however. Misandry exists because of so-called “female privilege”—as a consequence of patriarchy. (I do not require systematic opression for something to fit my definition of “misandry”; simply disliking men as a general rule is…
The way you bandy about that word… “oppression”. They hate men “because of their own oppression”. In other words, it’s just another means to say men deserve the hate they’re getting. So if women hate men… it’s because men deserve it.
Mind you, it doesn’t seem as though you’ve actually considered any viewpoint but one. You’ve picked up the Bible but never considered the devils point of view. Not once, not at all.
I’m not saying men deserve it
I’m not even saying misandry is okay and you should just forgive anyone who feels that way
I was just trying to rationalize the thought process, really, though I guess it does seem like I’m defending it.
Here’s what Misandry actually is… in my best layman’s terms… Misandry is the indifference to the suffering of males.
We talk about Barbie and how difficult it is for a girl to aspire to be that… but we’re rather tight lipped on superman and how difficult it is to aspire to be that.
Try to think about it for a day, all the ways our society is indifferent, or less interested because the sufferer is male. From mental health to prostate cancer to homelessness to illiteracy.
Did you know boys are behind in reading (significantly) in all fifty states? Did you know that for every five murder victims four are male? Men are more likely to suicide? More likely to die horrifically on the job?
Did you know men have zero reproductive rights. And I’m not even talking abortion here. i’m talking post birth. He has none. None. By law he has reproductive privileges that are only afforded to him by the actions of the mother. She could, quite literally, get pregnant, disappear, and come back and demand 18 years of back child support.
And you’ll be thrown into debtors prison if you don’t pay.
And we really just don’t give a fuck. *You* just don’t give a fuck because I suspect before today, before this message right here you never really examined the situation. Why would you? Hell, in the UK it’s impossible for a woman to rape a man and in the US rape is only possible if you penetrate the other person (i.e. short of a strapon, dildo, or stuffing her fist up his ass) a woman cannot, according to the FBI, rape a man.
Women serve 40% shorter prison sentences. Which is then twisted to be some kind of warped benefit to men (benevolent sexism). The family court systems are so draconian and in favor of women that it forced a 15 year old boy to pay child support to the 34 year old woman that raped him. And awarded the woman custody of the child.
All this is ignored. By you, by most everyone.
That’s Misandry. That’s why you’re probably a Misandrist even if you’re not entirely aware of it.
