What Eventually Me Too Was and Is

Article here. From 2021 but still very relevant. Excerpt:

'For a particular faction in feminism, which was extremely small at the time, Me Too was from the very beginning a tool for implementing perceptions that re-define womanhood, manhood, sexuality – humanity – and not in a way that drives humanity toward a humanist vision. For them, Me Too was not primarily about providing support and encouraging law enforcement, but, a means of overt violence and intimidation for re-education, of all men and all women, as to what is a woman and what is a man, and what are the relations between them and their meaning – that is, what is human. Re-education for the purpose of creating a person who conforms with the beliefs of the group that I will refer to here as “the Gender Church”.

For years, this faction of feminism has cultivated views that were constantly drifting away from any founded thinking on humanity and human sexuality. Its origins date back to the 1960s and 1970s, and several decades ago the faction developed a belief that there are no two sexes in humanity (in the sense that men and women actually have sex-specific qualities that arise from their innate sex); that heterosexuality is an artificial fabrication and dictation by the male sex toward the female sex that needs to stop; that all violence in human society comes only from men; and that hence, all women are victims and masculinity must be rewritten or erased. Half a century ago, this group was a small and negligible minority, but the rest of feminism almost never came out against it. Perhaps feminism never objected to avoid internal controversy, or perhaps many were tempted by the feeling that the faction promoted, of freedom to be violent without accountability, because all violence will always be justified and moral since the responsibility will always be placed on men, as they are depicted in the faction’s beliefs as the only source of any human suffering. Many may have been lured by a sense of freedom to hate (as expressed in books such as “I hate men”), because any hatred will be presented as nothing but a rational response to pure evil (accordingly, a sense of supremacy will ensue). Since this faction was operating in the absence of any substantial internal or external critique, in the two-to-three decades preceding Me Too it underwent two changes: It became increasingly extremist, but at the same time also more and more dominant in the mainstream. Women adhering to concepts of this small core became influential thanks to constant advances to centers of power – in the media, in literature, academia, large feminist organizations, government offices – under the guise of classical feminism, whereas, ideologically and emotionally, the ideas they advocated for have nothing in common with humanist conceptions of human equality and of equal human rights and dignity to all, regardless of any classification.'
