If you read nothing else I’ve ever written, or ever will write, please read this because it may make everything about my philosophy clear.
(Speaking in response to the suicide of Earl Silverman, a man who operated Canada’s only male run men’s shelter, after he had been rfepeatedly denied funding for his shelter while the Canadian government had set aside $350,000,000.00 for Feminist run women’s shelters.)
Blondeyed says: "The Governor General of Canada is male. The Prime Minister of Canada is male. The Speaker of the Senate is male. Over half of current Canadian senators are male. The majority of Canadian Supreme Court judges are male. The majority of members of the Canadian Parliament are male.
See where I’m going with this? The government that you are so infuriated with, the one that refused to provide funding for Canada’s only domestic abuse shelter for men, is primarily made up of men. And you blame feminists"
Because you’re right, you’re completely right. All of those men in power and not a single one of them thought it would be prudent to fund a men’s shelter. Even a *single* men’s shelter, despite devoting hundreds of millions to women’s shelters.
You make it that far but then you don’t stop to ask why. Why didn’t those men in power fund that shelter? You of course will think “Because Patriarchy!” and that’s where you would be completely wrong (and also why I blame Feminism for what I’m about to explain).
There’s a big huge gigantic difference between men and women that is incredibly significant but almost never discussed. Own group bias. Women have it, men don’t. This means that men prefer women, and women prefer women, but nobody prefers men.
As explained here: Four experiments confirmed that women’s automatic in-group bias is remarkably stronger than men’s and investigated explanations for this sex difference, derived from potential sources of implicit attitudes (L. A. Rudman, 2004). In Experiment 1, only women (not men) showed cognitive balance among in-group bias, identity, and self-esteem (A. G. Greenwald et al., 2002), revealing that men lack a mechanism that bolsters automatic own group preference.
I cannot overemphasize how important the above paragraph is. Everything else being even, women favor women over men, and *men* favor women over men.
There’s more though, because many women clearly like men… so what gives? And this is a second very important part of why Anti-Feminism exists. Because Feminists, for example, only really see this guy:
and never this guy:
When they do their comparisons… in their pursuit of “equality” it’s not the homeless man they expect to be equal to… it’s the wealthy executive.
The truth is many women do the exact same thing. Poor, undesirable, pathetic men are of no interest to them. None. This is actually the root of the “Nice Guy” meme. He’s a man that comes pre-rejected and so is worthy of nothing but scorn, ridicule, contempt, and hate.
This isn’t some massive plot at work. This is *human nature*. It’s instinct. Women care about other women as a survival technique, and men don’t care about the well being of other men as a reproductive technique. This forced competition, often to the death, among men, is very cruel but has been decidedly beneficial to the human race as a whole.
So women care about men at the top, and other women, but not the men at the bottom. Powerful men care about women, and men at the bottom care about women. Nobody, however, is especially concerned with those men at the bottom and they make up a HUGE percentage of men. And we just don’t care about them.
That’s why all the most powerful men divert so many resources to the care and well being of women while *simultaneously* being relatively disinterested in aiding other men. Not only are women the majority of voters, but there is a built in justification for doing so.
Feminism, being composed largely of women, mimics society. It sees the top men, makes policy based on the top men, and casually ignores the bottom men. The last Feminist I’ve heard of that tried to set up a men’s shelter was Erin Prizzey and Feminists *killed her dog* and drove her out of England. Here’s where it gets interesting. Because right now in your head you might be thinking that’s terrible they killed her dog. So your sympathy is with the woman that lost her dog, or maybe even the dog that lost its life. It’s not with the men who lost the domestic abuse shelter. You didn’t even give them a passing thought.
And all of society is like this. All of it. The men at the bottom get ignored, get glossed over, get scorned, get ridiculed, get sneered at. And Feminism, as what is currently substituting for “gender studies” aids and abets this because it does its damndest to ensure nobody ever thinks about those men at the bottom.
So now not only do people just naturally avoid thinking about the bottom men… now Feminists actively work to *ensure* nobody has any interest in them or their suffering.
And that’s a damn fine reason to be Anti-Feminist.
