@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs Ok, is misandry a thing? Yes. It is. But not how MRAs think.
Generally it's practiced by TERFS & it's an unreasoning hatred of all men (and insistence that mtf trans folks are men).
Is it common? Nope.
Where does it come from? Frequently, it's due to misogyny.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs If you've been abused by men for your whole life, it's not surprising when you decide they're all evil.
Of course then it's easy to fall into an online space which reinforces your beliefs and gets you all hyped up on hate.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs I don't personally blame all men everywhere for those who abused me, I blame the society we live in which raises men to believe toxic masculinity and chauvinism are the only correct ways to "be a man".
I do hold individual men accountable for their actions.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs The really sad thing about MRA shit is that the problems they claim to be worried about (workplace deaths, family court, the draft etc) are caused by the patriarchal system they're desperately enforcing.
Women aren't drafted because they're "the weaker sex" & "need protection"
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs Women don't get hired in high risk jobs because "a sweet little thing like you couldn't handle it".

Women are frequently awarded kids in family court because "a woman's place is in the home" i.e. being a caretaker for her kids.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs Men don't get help for domestic abuse, suicide, depression etc because it's seen as weak and unmanly to admit you need help, also considered weak and unmanly to show any emotion other than anger or stoicism.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs And so men suffer in silence because going to a therapist and talking about your problems is "namby pamby touchy feely girl shit"

"Real men don't cry" is still a refrain.
@FlyIngenuity @TakedownMRAs All of these are very real problems. And these rules are enforced by who? Other men of course.
But recognizing that would mean recognizing that a lot of the views of the world you hold are flawed and wrong. That's hard. So much easier to just scream at feminists online.
