Here’s to your “equality” feminism. I’m putting the femaleness back in it.
Dude, MEN STARTED ALL THIS SHIT.
This is NOT an accident.
They don’t oppress us because they’re ignorant and don’t know better. They do it because they benefit from it. They feign ignorance and promise they’ll change to waste your time, and then they keep doing what they always do.
Never once in history an oppressed class achieved anything by being nice and understanding to their oppressor. And women in general lack class conscience. Men are NOT on your side. They mostly want you to stop talking about your experience because it makes them uncomfortable.
Stop being nice to people who don’t even see you as fully human. Stop being a doormat. Stop codding your oppressor.
A follower of mine just reminded me that men can die of a heart attack if you squeeze their balls hard enough. Hell yeah, men should be thankful we are so nice to them.
Holy shit this is useful information

The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has dealt a devastating blow to the notion that men and women are fundamentally different when it comes to how they think and act.
“Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is,” Bobbi J. Carothers of Washington University in St. Louis and Harry T. Reis of the University of Rochester explained in their study. “That is, there are not two distinct genders, but instead there are linear gradations of variables associated with sex, such as masculinity or intimacy, all of which are continuous.”
Analyzing 122 different characteristics from 13,301 individuals in 13 studies, the researchers concluded that differences between men and women were best seen as dimensional rather than categorical. In other words, the differences between men and women should be viewed as a matter of degree rather than a sign of consistent differences between two distinct groups.
You mean human beings, like everything else, living and mineral, in nature exist on a series of both parallel and intersecting spectrums, and there is no such thing as a definitive binary or black/white divide?
MRAs, RadFems, and EvoPsych people everyone will be horrified to find this out.
radfems would not be horrified because this is what we’ve been telling people for forever
radical feminism seeks to abolish gender, as in the set of social conditions and structures that position female children as less than and raise them to be submissive and ornamental
abolishing this social construct means acknowledging that there is no fundamental difference between men and women psychologically [and very few noticeable physical differences: sex characteristics are obvious, but without the structure of gender telling women that they shouldn’t become muscular because men would no longer find them attractive, or that men who don’t have muscle tone in certain places are weak] and that differences that arise are a result of upbringing and social conditioning.
this is, quite basically, what being gender-critical means. this news is scientific support of radical feminist theory, and the fact that someone thinks radical feminists would be “horrified” at this news means that liberal feminists’ straw-feminist smear campaign and silencing tactics against radicalism have been very successful.
