#antifeminists have yet to give a coherent argument against feminism.
Okay, I’ll bite.
There’s a lot of misinformation spread by feminism, such as why a wage gap exists, rape culture, and rape statistics.
It boils down to a few reasons: men often take more demanding and hazardous jobs (e.g. construction) than women, women have maternity leave, often work less hours, leave the workforce earlier and are more likely to work part-time.
Rape culture doesn’t exist in the way we’ve been told it does. Society doesn’t condone rape; if it did rape prevention tools and posters and awareness campaigns solely aimed at women wouldn’t exist. Rape that happens to men is more likely to be excuse or sweeped under the rug though, and that’s something feminism isn’t helping with (x, x).
Any good movement should pride themselves on their honesty and factual accuracy. Clinging on to false information and spreading it around isn’t a good thing to do, especially if it tells women we’re disadvantaged in areas we really aren’t.
Other than the dishonesty, there’s a stunning lack of compassion and empathy shown to boys and men who suffer from discrimination. Feminist groups have shut down forums for battered husbands, protested at a meeting about male suicide, opposed joint custody, and fought against gender-neutral rape laws. The actions of the members of your movement clearly show feminism isn’t about equality. Not to mention the casual “male tears”, “kill all men”, “boys are disposable” downplaying and mocking of men that many feminists do.
Speaking up for men’s rights doesn’t take any attention away from women’s rights. Circumcision, suicide rates, violence, rape, these are all issues faced by men that need serious addressing, yet many feminists are unwilling to. Either feminism is truly an equality movement for all, or it’s a movement for women, in which case it shouldn’t interrupt men’s rights movements.
There are serious flaws in feminism that need to be addressed, because they’re affecting both men and women. Perpetuating victim complexes, fear and hate mongering, speaking over women, discriminating against men, encouraging censorship…it all kinda needs to stop.
It should also be said that people are allowed to have their own opinions, whether they align with yours or not. If women don’t want to be feminists, let them. Don’t silence or censor them, don’t tell them they don’t know any better or don’t know what feminism is. Most likely they’re seeing the side of it you don’t want to acknowledge.
A little disappointed that OP was deleted. But this is a good response.
