Top 10 Reasons Why No One Should Be a Feminist
Article here. Excerpt:
'Language is important. What would a movement under a gender biased name like masculism be about? Let’s say that somewhere it is “officially” stated it is about gender equality, and that the main purpose of this movement is to deal with the grave problem of male disposability. How long would it take for this movement to grow additional masculist “theories”, hyperboles, and engage in protracted struggle to skew the system into one direction? How long would it take before being anti-masculist was taken as being anti-male?
The truth is, both sexes were disposable. In this excellent bestseller, The Myth of Male Power: Why Men are the Disposable Sex, psychologist Warren Farrell makes a compelling case that, like with all other species, survival was the framework that drove the gender positioning: women risked death in childbirth; men risked death in conflicts with other tribes and the environment. However, there is a critical difference: women’s disposability stemmed from biology; men’s disposability required socialization.
When you have a movement called feminism, it becomes very difficult to engage in an objective dialog about the true nature of things. As you try to have it, any criticism all too easily becomes conflated with attack on the female gender itself.
Furthermore, we have perfectly fine words like humanitarian or egalitarian. No extra baggage necessary.'
