@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.
@hitthespot10@GovHowardDean@HuffPost Southern strategy and Lee Atwater was the basis. We have coded language of "law and order".
Reagan, starting his campaign in Philadelphia MS, the welfare queen bullshit. Removing the fairness doctrine.
Then we get Willie Horton, then Gingrich & Rush Limbaugh.
@hitthespot10@GovHowardDean@HuffPost This has been bubbling for decades.
Yes, it didn't break into the majority of the party until Clinton (whitewater, troopergate, Paula Jones and Monica were all attempted revenge for Nixon's impeachment).
@hitthespot10@GovHowardDean@HuffPost Gingrich published his trash about calling dems traitors and unamerican.
Rush started love bombing conservatives across America, telling them their every poisonous instinct was right, playing their egos like an old fiddle, stoking the Dunning-Kreuger effect.
Hey @Disney. Here's a thought, instead of taking the word of an admitted sexual predator and alleged rapist along with his tiny cadre of wannabe Hugo Boss cosplayers, maybe actually look into who is making these allegations?
I mean, this is @SamSeder all over again. (BTW Sam if you ever read this I'm one of the broke bastards you gave a free membership to and I'm eternally grateful and will give you an actual sub as soon as possible)
Maybe @Marvel is too afraid of backlash from a bunch of rejects that Captain America would have punched out of frame on his way to fighting an actual threat, but I really hope not. These guys are AIM beekeeper suits at best.
