There are also women in the spectrum that made feminism about hating men.
"I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." [/B]-- Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.
"We can't destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage." -- Robin Morgan
"I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire."
-- Robin Morgan
"To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a walking dildo."
-- Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto
"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness...can be trained to do most things."
-- Jilly Cooper, SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men, started by Valerie Solanas)
"Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women's movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage." -- Sheila Cronin, the leader of the feminist organization NOW
"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig." -- Andrea Dworkin
Under patriarchy, every woman's son is her potential betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman." -- Andrea Dworkin
"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." -- Catherine MacKinnon
"The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men." -- Sharon Stone; Actress
"Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience." - Catherine Comins
"All men are rapists and that's all they are"
-- Marilyn French, Authoress; (later, advisories to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)
Can you understand how that can be confusing?
I grew up during ERA and the beginning of the feminist movement. While the stated goals of those movements were, and are, very legitimate, the amount of hatred that was generated against men was astounding. Up to and including Patricide against an entire gender.
Hatred that came from some, but not all, of the "leaders" of the movement.
To make it worse, there are literally no rules to the game.
Hold a door open for one, she thanks you and goes through.
Hold a door open for another, she hisses at you that your a Chauvinist pig. (real life example)
And people wonder why men aren't acting like men anymore.
Flame away, I've seen how these threads go.
