Just a short entry to say wow! What an exciting 24 hours it’s been on the old blog front! Yesterday I wrote my views on the feminist movement and the world it is creating and as a result it turns out I’m a misogynist that is hell bent on stopping equality in the world. Here’s the definition of misogyny that I took from my interactions yesterday: “I’m a woman and this man disagrees with my opinion therefore he must hate all women the world over”. In my blog post yesterday I wrote nothing that was derogatory or offensive but apparently I did try and undermine feminism by making everything about men. I received a lot of negative feedback discussing points that were all covered in my original post. It seems that because I’m a man I don’t understand the struggle for equality. On this front I asked a simple question to a few women yesterday who interacted with me, “In what ways is a woman inferior to man in 21st Century Britain?” It seems this question was a bit of a stumbling block for all the warriors out there because not one person gave me an answer. Well they did answer but it went along the lines of “it’s not my job to educate you” and “I don’t have to explain myself to a man”.
I found this equality issue to be an interesting one, I was told that I need to “stop telling women what they should and shouldn’t be and let them be.” One woman said the views I expressed were petty so I asked her why is it my views are petty whilst hers were seemingly of world importance. To this she said I needed to stop crying and whining. Then when I pointed out her logic was slightly flawed she said she wished she could count the ways she did not care. I found this contradictory thought process to be very bizarre.
I go running almost daily down a canal near my house and on the canal there are two swans with a nest. One is male and the other is female and at the moment every time I run past the female swan is in the nest watching over her eggs. Now is she a victim of repression or is she simply fulfilling her role in nature? Should she be out on the canal constantly chasing off the geese like the male to prove she is capable? Am I being sexist for asking this?
I found this article to be very insightful of the end goal of “feminism”. The breakdown of the family unit is the root cause of almost all of the Western world’s social problems. We live in a world where an incredible amount of people, male and female, live very hollow and empty lives but compensate this with materialist goods that unfortunately don’t fill the void. People can fool other people about how happy and brilliant their lives are but there is no kidding yourself when your head hits the pillow at night. I found it very sad that most women seemed to put their blinkers on as soon as they saw the word feminism and automatically went on the offensive, to most of them I wasn’t a human being expressing views, I was a man. An evil man trying to spread his evil ways on the world. All in all I think it is a very sad state of affairs.
