there are way too many bad feminists on tumblr.
(i know they arent all bad, some really know what feminism means and want equal rights, this post is not about them)
there are so many “feminists” on tumblr who act like feminism means “getting back at men for oppressing us” or “raising women up above men”
feminism and misandry are not the same thing, but a large portion of the people on tumblr seem to think so.
it just annoys me so much when every bad thing ever is because of “straight cis males” and people act like females can do no wrong. i see posts talking about how horrible men are on feminist blogs? or saying that nothing they say matters, or that they’re useless?
now, please don’t assume that this is a “pathetic MRA” making this post, i’m a girl who’s getting really annoyed at some ignorant people on this site.
it’s like you see a girl post about all the things her boyfriend has to have, and he has to read or he has to have abs or he has to have no abs because “you can’t cuddle a man with abs,” and then you see a guy make a simple “nah im not really into curvy/skinny/what have you girls” and they’re automatically horrible male scum.
the same thing when you see girls body shaming guys, and then freaking out when it happens to girls.
and i don’t mean to say guys are angels, or that patriarchy or opression doesn’t exist, because i know it does, and it’s a huge problem, and feminism is a good cause if you actually know what real feminism is.
but all this blaming everything on guys or hating them or “getting even” is also an issue, believe it or not. whether patriarchy is a bigger problem, that doesn’t mean that misandry isn’t a problem too.
feminism is about equal rights for both men and women, not misandry.
