Don’t have an account? The claim made by antifeminists is that discrimination against women is largely in the past and feminism in the present day is unnecessary. In fact, according to this view, the real victims of gender discrimination today are boys and men. Because, according to this view, the goals of feminism have been met, it stands to reason that those women who continue to insist on a feminist movement are trying to get ahead of men—and thus are antimale.
Contrary to popular opinion, systematic research finds that feminists actually hold more positive attitudes toward men than do nonfeminists. Nonfeminists tend to subscribe to traditional gender roles of male power and privilege, yet at the same time, they resent men for their power and privilege relative to women.

But v olume brought consequences. Organized intimidation is now fair game for anybody audible to the mob, and everyone is audible online. Very few of the women who have found themselves violently threatened on the internet are. To view Sarkeesian’s Feminist Frequency videos after reading accounts of her harassment is to be surprised chiefly by how uncontroversial her analysis feels. She points out that the video game industry caters to men; women, when included, are typically set dressing, as victims of violence or sexual reward.
Is any of this truly in doubt? Is any of it more radical than a new voice reciting an old liturgy? Yet she was harassed as if she’d proposed revolutionary insurrection, and so during the last week of August, Sarkeesian, an ordinary woman with a message so innocuous that a sane world might deem it obvious, was forced to flee from her home.

Women are marching in the streets; women are running for office, speaking truth to power, and rising up to hold abusive men accountable. So, uh, where are the men in all this? The book is a near-forensically reported examination of modern masculinity and an urgent call to action in the Trump era. But For the Love of Men is no man-hating burn book—far from it. Plank also speaks with men, including queer men and men of color, about their lived experiences, their pain, the ways societies across the world encourage them to stifle their emotions, and the prevailing misperception that they are base beings with no inherent desire for intimacy and connection.
As a feminist journalist, you usually dive into the female perspective. How did you decide to home in on the topic of men? I come from an academic background.

To the contrary, as an outspoken feminist, she wrote extensive articles intended to expose the vicious and contemptible nature of men. In fact, in one article, she expressed her strong hope that the day would come when women would be able to have children without the assistance of men. Before the day came, however, Harriet went and died and left her entire estate to a feminist organization dedicated to the betterment of women.
Her disinherited relatives, however, thought her estate should go for their betterment and attacked the validity of Harriet’s will in court. She believed that that was the solution to ending the problems of all female. Why is that so unusual?

A waiter initially tried to bar Komisar’s entry; once she was inside, some customers booed her, and another dumped a beer on her head. August 10, By Nina Renata Aron. Misogyny is everywhere. The word, which conventionally means hatred of women, was once a radical accusation. On one end of the spectrum, the term is used to describe societal inequity, evidenced by things such as the gendered wage gap in the United States, the difficulties women have in finding adequate medical care and the career-destroying prerogatives of men like Les Moonves.
A look at archival photographs, including those from The New York Times, shows how, as the term came into popular use, misogyny has also been a part of our visual landscape, from headline news to everyday experience. One report indicated that a mongoose in Kenya might be a misogynist. Disdain for women, it is sometimes argued, is also the reason certain corners of pop culture are dismissed.

Imagine the horror of discovering that your dream man is really Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde — a nice, charming, caring man in public, but an angry, domineering abuser at home. Margaret Rinck in her book Christian Men Who Hate Women describes such men as misogynists — men who need to control their wives more than they need their affirmation or admiration, men who are deeply dependent on their wives while at the same time harbouring a strong resentment.
The word misogynist literally means hatred of women. Although they claim to love their wives, the actions of a misogynist indicate just the opposite. They may appear kind and charming at church or the office, but they lead a double life at home, acting kind and loving part of the time, and disrespectful and abusive the rest of the time.
