Why canít we hate men?
Washington Post ^ | June 8, 2018 | Suzanna Danuta Walters

Posted on 06/12/2018 5:16:09 AM PDT by outpostinmass2

It’s not that Eric Schneiderman (the now-former New York attorney general accused of abuse by multiple women) pushed me over the edge. My edge has been crossed for a long time, before President Trump, before Harvey Weinstein, before “mansplaining” and “incels.” Before live-streaming sexual assaults and red pill men’s groups and rape camps as a tool of war and the deadening banality of male prerogative.

Seen in this indisputably true context, it seems logical to hate men. I can’t lie, I’ve always had a soft spot for the radical feminist smackdown, for naming the problem in no uncertain terms. I’ve rankled at the “but we don’t hate men” protestations of generations of would-be feminists and found the “men are not the problem, this system is” obfuscation too precious by half.

But, of course, the criticisms of this blanket condemnation of men — from transnational feminists who decry such glib universalism to U.S. women of color who demand an intersectional perspective — are mostly on the mark. These critics rightly insist on an analysis of male power as institutional, not narrowly personal or individual or biologically based in male bodies. Growing movements to challenge a masculinity built on domination and violence and to engage boys and men in feminism are both gratifying and necessary. Please continue. But this recognition of the complexity of male domination (how different it can be in different parts of the world, how racism shapes it) should not — must not — mean we forget some universal facts.

Pretty much everywhere in the world, this is true: Women experience sexual violence, and the threat of that violence permeates our choices big and small. In addition, male violence is not restricted to intimate-partner attacks or sexual assault but plagues us in the form of terrorism and mass gun

“So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.”

The last paragraph of this editorial shows derangement of this Northeastern University Professor.

“We don’t allow comments that degrade others on the basis of gender, race, class, ethnicity, political beliefs, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or other classifications.”

This editorial also violates Washington Post’s own guidelines.

Rush talked about this yesterday, read her article on the air. His conclusion? Such people have deep seated anger in their hearts and soul, and would never be happy.

Just replace the word “men” with “women” to get a feel for how evil this is. This is not how you win an election as HRC found out.

She is a director at Northeastern University. The sad thing is if she is fired some other depraved university will hire her. Sick.

Extra wide brushes enable you to finish the painting much faster.

That fact that she has a well paying job with so little skills completely undermines her thesis. Where else, except in the western world, could she be employed and allowed to spew her hate.

Another wonderful well-adjusted and thoughtful member of the academic community. She's at Northeastern, in Boston. Estimated costs for tuition, fees, and on campus room and board for 2018-2019 academic year = $69,963.

She looks a lot like Rachel Madcow.

I suspect that she was “well over the edge” decades ago.

She can hate men, but don’t be surprised if men hate back.

She would be better off hating certain mens’ behavior. Such as Schneiderman’s, Weinstein’s, and Wiener’s. But to hate a group of people for immutable characteristics such as their possession of the Y chromosome is idiotic.

Given that most men in western society actually spend most of their lives trying to please and placate women, this is raw idiocy. If western women need men to “step down” voluntarily so that they can rise up, they don’t even believe they are equal. Maybe if she stops blaming men for her own self-loathing and weakness, she might have a chance at happiness one day.

I know a couple of lesbians personally. I don’t sense they hate men at all. In fact they act more like men then most millennial boys. This professor is just insane.

She’s gender-assuming.

Why isn’t this woman in the kitchen?
Why is a woman talking?

You know what she should really hate? Democrat men, the hardcore kind. Most of them are just wolves in sheep clothing. Any woman with any sense should see right through them.
