This blog exists to support liberatory collectivist activism that is anti-patriarchy, anti-colonialism, and anti-capitalism. It also seeks to center the experiences, theories, and agendas of radical and feminist women of color.

Yahoo Answers has a Misogynist/Antifeminist guy named Jim who is a Delusional Fool Who Thinks "Misandry" Exists! LOL

A question is asked by an Ignorant Man:
When is it OK to hate half the world's population?
Apart from when you are a feminist I mean:
'My feelings about men are the result of my experience. I have little sympathy for them. Like a Jew just released from Dachau, I watch the handsome young Nazi soldier fall writhing to the ground with a bullet in his stomach and I look briefly and walk on. I don't even need to shrug. I simply don't care. What he was, as a person, I mean, what his shames and yearnings were, simply don't matter."
Marilyn French; The Woman's Room (later, advisor to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)
"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman."
"I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He's just incapable of it."
Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
"Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release."
"Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience."
Catherine Comin, Vassar College. Assistant Dean of Students.

These demented women are mainstream feminists, particularly Catherine MacKinnon, who is credited with creating the sexual harassment paradigm and is a respected Ivy League professor.
Women like this are the intellectual foundations of the feminist movement.
The question is answered by someone who is trying to clue the ignorant man above into something called the actual world of human events and oppression:
How ridiculous you and every other guy on Yahoo Answers is who trots out this same stuff over and over again across the Web.
I can find one thousand times more "quotes" from men, including from "sacred religious texts" that put down, insult, degrade, and are overtly hateful to women. Women are considered dirty and in some societies are forbidden to be social while having their periods. Thou shall not lie with a man as you would a woman. Why? Because men love women? You know why? Because to lie with a woman is considered degrading. Which gender is allowed to be priests? Women or men? How about the Pope? Women or men. Is that because women hate men?
Men's Rights guys want to delusionally pretend that a problem in the world is "women hating men", when everyone with a brain knows the institutionalized and interpersonal problem re: gender is MEN hating WOMEN. That hatred is expressing it in sexual harassment, rape, father-daughter incest, husbands and boyfriends beating up their wives/girlfriends, men molesting girls, men procuring women to "rent" them for sex, men drugging and date raping women, and on and on. Which gender burned women as witches? Men burned women. Which gender stones women to death? Men. Which gender is so devalued that infants are killed? Female infanticide is a major issue in the world, NOT male infanticide. Female genital mutilation means cutting out females' clitorises and sometimes sewing up their vulvas, to prove they are "pure" for their husbands. Do women cut off boys' penises and sew up their scrotums to preserve boys' "purity"? No.
Indigenous women in North America are raped... not by women, but by men, and 80% of the time, or more, it is white men. One in THREE Indigenous women in North America is raped. Now what kind of idiot thinks the dozen or so quotes you put up above equals all the atrocities I've just listed here?
You'd have to be one inhumane, unfeeling, uncaring jerk to think that all this equals a few "choice" quotes from women whose books are mostly out of print. And do you honestly think there aren't hateful things men say about women that can't be gathered up across the internet? Did you ever see what men say about women on pornography sites? How about what men who use women in prostitution call those women? How about what pimps call women?
Who controls media, globally, men or women? Men. Who controls the military and the police forces globally, men or women? Men. Who are the majority of Supreme Court Justices in the U.S.? Men. What gender has EVERY U.S. president been? Men. Who controls the medical and educational institutions? Men. Which gender has portraits lining the halls of the Academy in the U.S.? White men. Who is ordering the mass murder of men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan? Men. Which gender is getting raped wherever men have wars? Women.
Which gender sailed the seas and raped and slaughtered women? Men. Did women do this to men? No. Which gender sexually enslaved women? Men. Did women do this to men? No. Which gender forbid women to be considered anything other than chattel property, forbid women the vote, made it illegal for women to enter universities, and currently pays women less to do the same work as a man? White men. Have women done any of this to men? No.
Did a man shoot many women in a Montreal university twenty years ago, because he hated feminists, or did a woman shoot a classroom full of men? It was Marc Lepine who killed fourteen women. No woman has ever done this to men.
