Degradation and compensation. The worlds main focus has changed drastically since the origins of established Feminism back in the late nineteenth century. Back then women’s main focus was to establish ground in political and social equality, whereas today’s Feminists, sometimes referred to as “Feminazi’s” goal appears to be to enact vengeance on our current population of men.
Much like similar problems between racial inequality and superiority, many women are now evidently seeking restitution for the suffrage of their ancestors. Many of today’s popularly recognized Woman’s Rights Activists, such as Caroline Heldman, Zarna Joshi, and Kat Blaque advocate against the rights of men in order to succeed in their goals.
For most of my life, I have been a firm supporter of feminism and the women’s rights movements, however in recent years I have found my self advocating on the side of men. This seems to a common trend among our species, these flip-flops in prejudice. From the uprising in the Black Lives Matter controversies, to many other groups whom take the past as though it were the present. History is one of the most important subjects on which to be educated. When the women’s movement begun, when the famous five won women the right to vote alongside men they did it through civil and just manners, gathering evidence to their claims and taking appropriate action in courts. They acted out of a genuine concern for equality, for a right to a voice, and to considered a people. They did not act of of spite or out of hated, they simply advocated for what they knew was right. Gender equality, and equal opportunities for all. However, today’s feminists tarnish the term of Feminism, often quoting it only to then contradict themselves when expressing they’re social and political views.
Just for reference, Marriam-Webster defines feminism as the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
Unfortunately, many woman, hailed as feminist, don’t exactly have this goal in mind.
In fact, prominent feminist, Sharon Stone is quoted as saying, “The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men.”
In 2001, Catherine Comins, dean of student life at Vassar College, is quoted as saying, “Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience.” In this she is justifying wrongful rape allegations against men, and even considering them beneficial when in reality they can be detrimental to those involved. In this she went on to loosely explain that false accusations can lead to self-reflection after the realization of such possibility. I find this absurd. In my opinion to say that is to attempt to solve the U.S. gun problem by shooting everyone in the leg to teach them how it feels.
Many women, like myself, do not want to associate themselves with the word feminism because of the way these radical feminists have screwed it’s meaning and created a community of hatred against men.
Egalitarianism on the other hand is defined as the doctrine that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities. While the feminist movement humiliates themselves by “free bleeding” and “pissing for equality” (yes this happened, and the feminists did it, including Casey Green and other ‘Social Justice Warriors.’ ) the egalitarian movement recognizes the differences between men and women, but offers equality for both.
