When you claim that I am a sexist or a misogynist because I do not support feminism, you are telling me that feminism, indeed, excludes the male sex.
No, feminism is equality and if you don’t support equality then yes you are a bigot but that wasn’t concluded on the…
I want all people to be treated as equals. That is why I do not support feminism. Feminism, by its very name, is an ideology rooted in bigotry.
Your little ramble failed to disprove my claim that feminism excludes males. The fact that you, yourself, just now, accused me of being a bigot for not supporting feminism, only further proves my claim. Do you need me to explain? Ok. If I am a bigot because I do not support feminism, then you must believe that I am… what?.. a misogynist? I do not believe that "women deserve to be treated as human beings"? If that’s what you think because of my refusal to support feminism, then you are proving that feminism is exclusionary of males because how could I be a bigot if feminism included males and females?
Feminism is not ‘equality’, any more than Communism or Anarchism or Christianity or any other political movement or religion IS ‘equality’. Equality is ‘equality’ - a universal ideal that can’t be claimed by any person or group of persons, or be copyrighted by any limited, flawed human fad.
'Feminism', on the other hand, is a very recent political ideology with a specific narrative of history and assumptions about the world (especially about women and men's place in the world) that mark it out from all other previous models of the world. It assumes inherent male privilege and inherent female victimhood. If you choose to believe in that model (essentially 'patriarchy' theory) and/or choose to define yourself by that label, then you can be said to be ‘a feminist’. That’s about it.
Just felt I should clarify that for the slower among us.
