That negative impact is not caused by radical feminists; it's cause by people incapable of making distinctions… it's not a bad name they are giving to feminism, but rather a bad name given to feminism because irrational people cannot separate the unique views
I agreed that it’s not fair that more people don’t make greater distinctions, but they don’t. You can specify the blame wherever you like, but that changes neither the behavior of toxic identarians, nor the resulting backlash against feminism as a whole.
why are you turning your gaze to radfems for the black eye overall feminism receives rather than the people throwing the fist?
I think I’ve been clear that my criticisms have been aimed at a part of the radfem/SJW community that plays identity politics & in-group vs. out-group warfare, along with specific pieces of their ideology.
Once you label yourself a victim, you are essentially throwing in the towel and giving up. You're saying you can't get out of your situation without tugging on a patriarchal/matriarchal sleeve.
And what I said was about what I call "old school" feminism, which is the kind of man-hating feminism that a lot of the "women against feminism" reject. They don't see every man (even the ones they may dislike and think of as 'part of the problem') as part of some sort of a conspiracy but rather as ignorant.
Do we still disagree?
Kinda funny how when young women say no to feminism, feminists don't accept that no means no...
"Men like me"...?
I'll go make some popcorn.
Women like you and your clowder of cats.
