I know feminists do exist but they exist like white supremacists in that there really aren’t that many. The reason why feminists appear to be more abundant than they really are is because of the internet. The internet is a place for people to pretend they are someone else and also for the strange creatures of humanity to show themselves. I can’t say I’ve ever met a feminist but maybe I don’t know enough white lesbian hipsters. White supremacists apparently exist but I’ve never met one of them either. Perhaps for many, being a feminist is just their online personality.
If you’re on WordPress enough, you will get the impression that feminists are everywhere because they have blogs, they fiercely comment on other blogs and feminist type articles are always featured on Freshly Pressed. It’s so mainstream that you’re convinced that they exist in large numbers. What you see on the internet is a brainwash though. The only time you ever come across weird messed up stories is on the internet. I come across gay people all the time in real life but I’ve never met a feminist and gay people make up only a small percentage of people. If I have met feminists, they are not the internet type that have extreme views.
Many of the feminists you bump into online are too extreme to be taken seriously. They don’t want equal rights for women, they want invincibility. They make it sound like males go through life without any serious hardships. In my whole life I have never known a female that got their ass kicked like I have seen many guys get their ass kicked. I know guys that have been stomped on, shot, stabbed, murdered, sliced, pummeled with blunt objects, you name it. I’m sure cat calls are just as painful though. Can you be any more petty?
Unfairness is just a part of life. There will always be those with power who will pick on those with less. It hardly ever has anything to do with gender or even race. There’s inequality towards every group and always will be.
Feminism is a much more respected movement than white supremacy but for the most part it should be taken as seriously as white supremacy. Extreme feminism(typical of what you see on WordPress) is the equivalent to racist rants and 15 years olds giving life advice…they are silly. It’s silly because it doesn’t make much sense most of the time. They are just irrational arguments based on beliefs that solely benefit the female gender. I think a better label for them is ‘online feminist’ because I’m almost certain they don’t really exist in real life.
