  • Most people don't hate feminism; they hate 3rd wave feminism.

    Equality is great, and most people are all for it. It's the toxic man haters that call themselves "feminists" that are the issue. They are the ones that want more than their share, by either taking rights away from men, or asking for special priviledges, simply because they're female.

    Those women have not only hijacked feminism, simply by being louder, and more vocal, but they've ruined it, as well. Being female doesn't make someone better than a male (which is what they claim, and/want), because it should make them equal to a male. It's stopped being about equality, and has become a crusade of superiority, instead.

      "Most people don't hate feminism; they hate 3rd wave feminism."

      This is a myth, Feminism has always been like it is now. The only thing that has changed is more people being aware of it now than in the past thanks to the internet.

  • Cause a lot of feminists are getting the wrong idea of this movement. Instead of making everything equal between women and men, they are spreading the idea that women do not need men and society should be run by women. Women need men and men need women we should have equal opportunities to take on positions. Thats it.

  • One general reason why not only men but majority of women do not support feminists, is due to that feminism/femimists have now changed from their original definition/objective.
    Lots of modern feminists wants equal rights yes, but only in some situations which in all honesty is plain rubbish.

    The original meaning of feminism is just wanting equality in all fields. Regardless of literally anything. Gender should not be considered.

  • People hate the movement because it’s turned into a whiney hate group. They claim everyone is due to oppression or sexism or some kind of ism, and that everyone is some kind of oppressor. They lie and misrepresent information and they refuse to deal with real issuesi s there anything likeable in that?

  • You know what I think is funny?

    Quote: "Women are the economy of the US. 83% of everything sold in the non business to business setting is done or influenced by women. That's 7 trillion dollars, larger than the economy of India and China Combined. 89% of financial service decisions are made by women and control 40% of investable wealth and they inheriting another 30% of it when their husband dies and men typically die first. Women live another 15 years. Transferring of wealth to women in this country is in the trillions of dollars."

    Yes women do over 80% of the household spending in the U. S. But it's around 80% in every developed country. This fact is never brought up in any discussion about money and gender (wonder why?).

    The truth is we live in a totally gynocentric society. Everything is catered to women. The media especially. Since women spend 4-5 times more money than men. 85% of advertising is also targeted at women. That's why you see so many 30-40 year old but still great looking very competent and smart women with trouble making kids and a bumbling fool as a husband in ads.

    The media is totally influenced by their advertisers who pay their bills. (That's why you never see a anti war segment on TV. Only the game show of: "Which country should the U. S. invade next? ) And because of that they target women with their content so they can run those ads.

    So you see women control the money, so people cater to them, women also control sex and reproduction another reason why people cater to them. And women have always had this power. The idea that women have always been oppressed is a joke. Women have a really high sexual market value without having to do anything for it. That's the definition of privilege. But that privilege is also not talked about because it just doesn't fit the narrative.

    Western women are the most privileged people to ever live on this planet but instead of appreciating it or make the most of their opportunity feminists have to have a victim complex and find issues that they can complain about. And on top of that this whole identity politics movement has created more division than I've ever seen before.
    When I was a kid I a lot of books where the main character was a girl. The idea never even entered my head that I wanted the character to be a boy because I couldn't relate to a girl. That's insane. If that's really how these people feel then they must sociopaths. Instead of caring about the character it's all about gender race & sexuality things you can't change. The movie didn't have enough gay black women in it so it wasn't good.

    And the same thing is happening in the real world. People get judged based on their gender, sexuality and race more now than when I was a kid.

    Feminism is not about equality, that's just what feminists say when they're trying to get people into their religion or when they have to defend themselves. But otherwise I never hear a feminist talk about equality. When they say we need more equality they mean we need more shit for women. More power, more money, more ways to screw men over and use the system against them.

  • I don't like it because all I've had experience with it doing is causing hate and violence. It's not about equality anymore that I can tell, it seems to be for superiority, and I have only met one feminist who claimed to be a feminist, had a logical argument, actually stood by that argument, and didn't flip me off all at the same time.

  • Skipping all the obvious reasons like conservative culture and religion, social media radicalizes a lot of young men in a bubble of misinformation.

    Everyone's seen the videos where a handful of self-professed feminists act like hysterical narcissists on Youtube. It's getting kinda tired though when the same few clips are recycled in FEMINIST REKT COMPILATION PART 6969.

    It didn't take long for certain people to monetize this internet phenomenona and guide the social media herd to the sweet embrace of conservative politics. If you look at popular anti-feminist social media figures like Jordan Peterson, Stefan Molyneux and Ben Shapiro, opposing feminism is not really an ultimate goal for them, but a tool to get insecure men to believe in what they actually want them to believe. For Jordan it's Christianity, Molyneux has that white supremacy thing going on and Shapiro wants people to jerk off to laissez faire capitalism.

    The final component of that radical equation is the outrage media. Anti-feminists really captured the power of clickbait and made it into a powerful reactionary force. If you look at the anti-feminist media, every female remake of some shitty 80's movie or a Marvel female superhero movie is the end of Western culture and masculinity.

    So that's essentially why you got a lot of angry men.

  • Feminism is creating a divide between men and women. It is hurting us all. I don’t understand why we can’t have a calm and cool conversation about it. It’s always rage and anger.

    Feminists believe their views are pure. Moral. Good. Helps society. Makes our world better.

    Anti feminists believe that feminism does the opposite. It’s not blind hatred, it’s not jealousy, it’s not emotional reaction. It is a logical conclusion that we make, but we are labeled by the feminists as hate mongers. We must hate women. We must believe men are superior. We don’t want equality. We want to dominate women. That’s all a lie.

    We have perfectly good and logical reasons to reject feminism. The problem with feminism is it believes wholeheartedly that it is correct and good in every way.

    Not only feminism, but the left leaning liberals in general. They believe they hold all the kindness, all the good, all the moral, and any other perspective is evil and wrong and not worth hearing or acknowledging.

    This is why people hate feminism, this is why non leftists can’t stand the left.

  • I hate the feminist movement because it isn't "just" about social gender equality. It serves as a vehicle for authoritarian collectivism and left wing economic policy (redistribution of wealth).

    It is a movement that monopolizes the noble pursuit of social gender equality in order to further other (evil) government policies that are entirely unrelated to gender relations, by discrediting anyone who opposes them.

    "How dare you oppose the feminist movement. Literally ALL it is about is gender equality." <--- That is a lie.

    Feminism is like Charter. All I want is the internet service (gender equality), but every time I do business with Charter, they try to sneak in cable television (wealth redistribution) and a phone line (identity politics) and charge me a higher price for the bundle.

    Despite what you are told, feminism is NOT politically neutral. It is necessarily left wing. Leftists exploit the cause of gender equality to further their economic policies by spreading the narrative that leftism has a monopoly on gender equality and that one cannot be right wing and also for gender equality. Feminism shouldn't be political, but it has been made political.

    I identify as an egalitarian because egalitarianism covers all bases with the blanket doctrine that "all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities"--which can then be applied to sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, nationality, what have you. The best part is that it is apolitical, as it should be.

  • Let's see what known AND influental feminists throughout the past towards day had to say:

    “I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honourable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.” ~Robin Morgan

    “To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.” ~Valerie Solanas

    “I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.” ~Andrea Dworkin

    “Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear” ~Susan Brownmiller

    “In a patriarchal society, all heterosexual intercourse is rape because women, as a group, are not strong enough to give meaningful consent.” ~Catherine MacKinnon

    “The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.” ~Sally Miller Gearhart

    “All men are rapists and that’s all they are” ~Marilyn French

    “I have a great deal of difficulty with the idea of the ideal man. As far as I’m concerned, men are the product of a damanged gene. They pretend to be normal but what they’re doing sitting there with benign smiles on their faces is they’re manufacturing sperm. They do it all the time. They never stop. I mean, we women are more reasonable. We pop one follicle every 28 days, whereas they are producing 400 million sperm for each ejaculation, most of which don’t take place anywhere near an ovum. I don’t know that the ecosphere can tolerate it.” ~Germaine Greer

    “The nuclear family must be destroyed, and people must find better ways of living together…. Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process…. No woman should have to deny herself any opportunities because of her special responsibilities to her children… Families will be finally destroyed only when a revolutionary social and economic organization permits people’s needs for love and security to be met in ways that do not impose divisions of labor, or any external roles, at all.” ~Linda Gordon

    Geez, I wonder why people don't like feminism. It's a mystery.

  • You don't support equal rights in the draft or child custody laws. 75% of college students are women but you don't care about raising male percentages. 85% of homeless are male but you don't believe in male shelters. Women on average make more money for the same work. Finally 75% of domestic violence is perpetrated by women and feminism applauds this. Egalitarianism is the support of equality, feminism is a fight for female superiority.

      Yes, many of us do support equality in selective service, and in the military in general. We support children being cared for by both parents. It's for men to fight for men. Most homeless shelters are men only, and I support there being as many shelters as there need to be for all the people who need them. We don't, on average, make more money for the same work, and the many economists of the world have proven this nine ways to Sunday. We don't support domestic violence perpetrated by anyone. It's ALL bad.

      How many homeless people have you housed? My feminist mother and I have given six homeless people temporary housing. One just moved out last weekend. I've also cooked for a shelter program. My feminist brother donated his services as an architect to remodel a space to serve more homeless.

      Way to cling to your obvious delusion. Blame this one on the orange bad man too.

  • For me it is just not genuine that most of the women are doing feminism for a moral reason. If I wanted to stand up for something bad, I'd go for the bigger problems. I mean inequality is a problem. But there are still kids starving or being abused. There is climate change. There are people not having opportunity to receive health care or education. For me it is just hypocritical when someone is only bothered by problems that they are affected by.

  • Because there's always extremists of every movement - in the case of feminism, it's not about equality, but more power to women. And just stupid things like men trying to be a gentle and hold a door open for a woman, then getting insulted and belittled because she felt he was attacking her for not being able to do it herself, shit like that.

  • Because feminism has become more about female entitlement and hating men than it has about equal rights. Most men don’t hate the idea of gender equality. It’s militant misandrists and their fucked up mentality about feminism that men hate. Unfortunately these bitches drastically outnumber the normal egalitarian ladies. I’m a woman and I hate feminism too.

  • Just as many women hate feminism.
    It’s a hate group.
    The core of it’s ideology is misandry.

    The most famous voices of the group are man-haters.
    (Solanas, Greer, Dworkin, Steinem, womens UN, National Organization of Women, etc)

    The actions of the group are mostly anti-male, yet they always point to the shit definition as it’s “proof” for being about equality.
    Western women are the most privileged group of humans to ever exist on earth and yet play victim with nonsense fabricated claims like wage gap and rape culture. Which can easily be proven false when you actually look outside feminist echo chambers.

    If you want to know why most people are against feminism... disagree with one or prove one wrong. They will show their true colors.

      @jacquesvol for one thing, Jesus said that his followers would be recognised by the love they had for one another. Feminism does not promote such love. Rather, it pushes for the supposed rights of the female even at the expense of the welfare of the male. Its goal is female superiority, which is sexist and does not foster love between the sexes----developments which are contrary to the Christian message.

In your own words can you tell me what feminist is about. They looked at me like im stupid and laugh. So belittled me. Then there is different types of feminist. The toxic ones and the good ones.

Saw a lot of double standards but this was only what the toxic feminist wanted.
