For beginners: hashtags like: #killallmen #misandryforlife and other things seem to brutally damage the feminist movement as a whole. I thought feminism was for equality, not wishing genocide on men. http://blamethe1st.deviantart.com...

And also, it's now super contradictory. Radfems think that women should be spelled womyn, history to Herstory and many other things, because anything containing the word 'man' is offensive. And let's not forget, they use the dictionary definition to excuse their contradictory behavior. http://facts-not-feminism.deviantart.com...

They also throw their movement out of the frying pan and into the fire, by messing with data to match their standards, did i mention one of the radfems pushed and killed a man for trying to catch a train.

Radical feminism is described as "Radical feminism is a perspective within feminism that calls for a radical reordering of society in which male supremacy is eliminated in all social and economic contexts. Radical feminists seek to abolish patriarchy by challenging existing social norms and institutions, rather than through a purely political process." That is great! But, the type of feminism you're talking about is no longer feminism. It has crossed into the hating zone. Feminism is about equality. Killing the other gender is not equality.

There's one small problem. What is this 'patriarchy' you talk about? Is it the new-left wing version of the Illuminati? Like how if you see a triangle, something is part of the Illuminati? Now replace triangle with the word man, and the Illuminati with the 'patriarchy'.

And, I don't remember any modern male supremacy. It's more like this: Women > Men. This is where it's so skewed to the point that it falls apart, and has now transformed into a hate-group for men. Wasn't it also a white supremacy movement?

Lastly, some of the feminists use the 'No True Scotsman' fallacy as a scapegoat regarding feminism as a whole. If you mention the word 'radfem' and feminism in the same sentence, they will employ it to excuse their behavior.

Thanks for your input :). O.K., the patriarchy I'm talking about is "a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it." (1) Feminism in it's purest form is about equality through the sexes. And I support that kind of feminism! But radical feminism is not equality, it's about the women being the dominant sex. And that would be history repeating itself but in the opposite way.

That's the thing. I was talking about radical feminism in general and how they think all men are oppressors. This can & will cause society to collapse as a whole, due to how toxic the community is. And I'm not sure, but I think a law was almost passed, that if you disagree with a feminist, you go straight to jail. And here I thought feminism was for equality.

This proves that history is repeating itself in a backwards fashion, and it's going to loop itself for a lengthy period of time. The only way we can break the cycle is to drive off radical feminism.

Lastly, I noticed some irony here. Radical feminists seem to be the ones actually doing things, while the other side of feminism, does next-to-nothing.

The guy against feminism could use better links but his argument is more sound overall, person for feminism, the "not a real feminist" argument had been used do much its not a point anymore, its just a scapegoat.

Also please explain how "Patriarchy" isnt just a left wing version of the fabled "Illuminati"
