If you are a younger male and you don’t know what feminism is and how it affects you, you need to read this fucking post. Ladies, you can read it too. I don’t care how dumb your high school teachers have made you or how much you think history and any “ism” doesn’t apply to you. This one does. So listen the fuck up.
If you had asked me four years ago if I was a feminist, I probably would have said yes.
Yes, I believe that women should have the right to vote.
Yes, I believe that women should have equal rights to men.
Yes, I believe that women should be able to work outside the home.
But in truth, I didn’t know what the fuck feminism was or what modern feminists want. I was like the fish in this video (You can watch it all, but you only need to watch the first 20 seconds to get the context for this post):
Like the fish in the video who have no idea what water is, many people don’t know what feminism actually is. So what the hell is feminism?
I do understand feminism finally. And I must say, fuck feminism. Let’s get in to what feminism is and why Fuck Feminism.
My experience with feminism:
I went to one of the most feminist colleges in the U.S. It was a place where fraternities were looked down upon just because ‘all those guys don’t need to be living together,’ and where male and female bathroom symbols were replaced with gender neutral symbols. Where the gender and women’s studies majors complained that there weren’t enough physics and math majors so we needed to change admission standards, yet the population of the college was almost 70% women. It was a place where a fraternity brother of mine was accused of rape one day by his insane, cokehead, drunken, whorish ex-girlfriend because she regretted a hook-up, and we met as a fraternity in the middle of the night to discuss what the fuck we were going to do since our reputation had thus been tarnished forever because one slutty girl regretted a decision she made while she was blackout drunk. Meanwhile, my fraternity brother Dan respected his girlfriend like a princess and could not get any. It is a place where two recent (beloved by all students, male and female) administrators were let go because they did not take an anonymous grievance panel (rape situation) seriously enough. (They took it seriously, just wasn’t up to par with what the anonymous griever wanted). There are no surveys about this, but I can personally attest that it is in the 10% for ugliest, fattest schools in the nation (not just girls, btw).
Highly selective school too. Go figure.
I had a decision between going to a large state school, and going to this small school. I decided to go to the small school where I could play college sports and pursue in depth studies for my future career in medicine (this didn’t pan out).
During my time at this school, however, I had no clue about how much of a role feminism was playing in my college experience. I was always a go with the flow kind of guy. I had no idea much it was impacting my perception of what I wanted for me. I thought I wanted an independent, tomboy-ish, masculine girlfriend with short hair. I really did. Why? Well, What the hell is water?
The feminist viewpoint has come so far from its original goals in this country, to get women equal rights, that it is absurd. Even my girlfriend, who has a vagina (and provides actual value to the world) agrees with me on this point. I’m going to guess this is because she is smart, and, oh, I don’t know, has spent her formative years developing an actual skill set besides being an expert on bitching about glass ceilings.
How Feminists Screwed Themselves Over
Feminists don’t want women to have the option to be homemakers. They want women to work outside the home, period. No exceptions. Just look at how this feminist talkshow host reacts to Christopher Hitchens (one of the most respected academics of our time) when he says that no wife of his is going to have to work outside the home and that women are better then men at working with children. She literally thinks he is joking:
Let me tell you something: I work with a lot of middle aged ladies in my profession. A shit ton. Who do you think complains the most at my job? Ladies aged 35-55. The guys complain ZIP (Well we do actually. mostly about how much the ladies complain). Feminism has taught women that they need to, they must work forever or else this is some kind of a setback to womenkind. Us ladies must prove that we can do it! Trust me, a large percentage of 40 year old single women(or full-time working mothers) wish they could go back and bitchslap the 22 year old, hotter version of them that didn’t marry a a guy who made enough money when she could.
This is how feminists screwed themselves over. Now, in order for a family to make a middle class wage, you MUST have a double income from both man and wife. This is the “water” that people don’t realize about feminism: it doesn’t give females the option to work, it makes it so they must work to bring in money, unless the man is making bank at a 6+ figure job, and/or the wage that the woman would make working is equal to or less than the cost of child care.
So take action. Guys, you need to get your shit in order and build something great, pursue greatness so that you can take care of your lovely lady later in life. Ladies, be real with yourself about if you want a job later in life or not. At least think long and hard. It’s your choice: you can spend your hot 20s aimlessly hooking up, or you can look toward the future and be a classy yet sexy girl who in turn deserves a man of class (and marry that motherfucker while you are still smoking hot). Well, actually it’s not your choice any more. Most of you will have to work to provide your family with a double income to keep the standard of living you have become accustomed to. And remember, when you hit 40 and are vaguely dissatisfied because you have to work a 40-50 hour job that you hate, you have feminism to thank!
