Feminists Flaunting Their True Colors
I would encourage you to study this material very, very thoughtfully -- even though the material itself lacks thought altogether! I think you will agree it is a classic case study, worthy of future textbooks. Every juvenile trick in the feminist conversational playbook is on display here, and if you wish to understand the meaning of feminist subjectivism, you'll find it richly painted in all of its gaudy colors! Honestly, this stuff is SO good that I would even encourage you to archive the whole mess by cut-and-paste editing. I intend to do so myself, because I think this stuff constitutes evidence, and in the future we'll be glad we saved it.
The non-feminist world is gathering itself and closing in around the feminist world. The latter is getting smaller, shrinking into diminishing islands as the water rises from all directions. And the inhabitants of those isles are rising to the occasion quite as you might think they would do: by living in la-la-la-la land with their ears plugged! But you know, this is all they have EVER done, from the very first day -- they are simply acting true to form.
Against my inclination and better judgement, I left a comment on that thread -- but for some reason LJ would not post it. However, I have saved a copy, and I would like to share it with you now. It was in response to a very brief remark by a person sailing under the name of "Spankmypirate". Here is what Spankmypirate said:
"Anti-feminism is a direct expression of misogyny."And I replied to Spankmypirate in the following terms:
So, if I understand you correctly, you mean to say that anybody who criticizes feminism is a woman-hater (misogynist)?I share the above as one example -- a prime one! -- of how rhetorical discipline ought to be undertaken. Enough attacks in THAT style can dissolve feminism in the way detergent breaks up an oil slick. And most of the LJ thread we are now discussing is wide open to such an attack mode.
I admit how it is theoretically possible for a critic of feminism to be a woman-hater (or any other kind of hater, for that matter), but I cannot comprehend why the predicate maps to the subject in this particular case.
On what ground of evidence, or reasoning, does it logically follow that a person critical of feminism hates women?
Please enlighten me. I live to learn.
All right, I am through talking. Here is what I got from Ulf Andersson:

”Anderson founded the Swedish father’s rights group PappaRättsGruppen after being prevented from seeing his daughter for six years after getting divorced from his wife. With support from a father’s rights group his situation has since changed and he is now able to see his 11-year-old occasionally.
