I'm tired of today's strong women and the struggle for gender equality. They do not like it when women are spoken of as "weak sex", but they strongly condone it.
Do not get me wrong - I fully support the equality of women within the framework of the law, I am with both hands for the right to divorce, abortion and premarital sexual relations with at least fifty men (or women), I do not suffer from various stereotypes about female logic, blondes, TP, women for driving, and in general, as they say, all my best friends are women (which, by the way, is the truth).
But modern academic feminism is completely different. For those who adhere to the dictionary meaning of the word "feminism" (struggle for the equality of women), I will give a short excursion into the ideas of modern academic feminism. The foundation of the whole theory of feminism is the concept of patriarchy, that is, the idea that men have systematically infringed upon the rights and belittled women from time immemorial, and they still try to do this at every opportunity. This is where the legs of all the other pillars of feminist thought grow: “the culture of rape” (every man either just wants to rape a woman, or has no idea at all what “mutual consent” is), “sexual conditioning of family violence” (family violence is committed exclusively by men against women), “social conditioning of sex” (complete denial of sexual dimorphism in humans and, in general, any physiological differences between men and women) and other nishtyaks.
And it would be fine if all this remained within the walls of universities - but no, feminism is penetrating deeper and deeper into everyday life and, what is most terrible, into legislation. As a result, we get absolutely terrible double standards and a bias of the system towards women. There are quite a few examples - anyone who has participated in alimony litigation can tell you a lot. A woman has the right to give birth to a child, to have an abortion or to abandon an already born child. A man does not have the right to vote in the decision on abortion, but must accept the woman's choice: the man does not have the right to abandon the child (the woman receives alimony in 100% of cases), the rights to the child himself - too (if the woman wants an abortion, and the man wants child - I'm sorry, man, but fuck you). The police, upon arrival, on a domestic violence call, by default take the husband in handcuffs, without even understanding. I’m already silent about all sorts of delicate cases like rape, where by default it is believed that a man, in principle, cannot be raped by a woman, and the whole process is skewed towards women in different ways.
In the social sphere, such double standards are also flourishing very actively. Take the recent shirt incident, for example. A scientist who wears a shirt with half-naked sexy women is an infringement of the rights of women. A feminist protester walking topless with a banner saying "You don't have to tell me how to dress" is a fight for equality. A handsome man on the cover of a fashion magazine - oh, what a handsome man! A beautiful woman on the cover of a fashion magazine - sexualizing women and using them as decorations. A woman who shows signs of attention to a man and admires the beauty of a man is a strong, independent woman. A man who shows signs of attention to a woman and admires the beauty of a woman is a misogynist who only needs women for sex. Recently, feminists have even begun to make regular forays into Wikipedia and edit scholarly articles with stuffing feminist thought (fortunately, Wikipedia rules force you to cite sources, so it's very easy to distinguish feminist edits from actual scientific data). There are many more examples.
It turns out a rather interesting picture: feminists do not like it very much when women are spoken of as a “weak sex”, but they vigorously condone the legislative and social consolidation of the status of a woman as a weak-willed, weak creature who is pushed around by men in every possible way and who needs protection from men. At the same time, a wonderful trick is often used, which many people fall for - the substitution of concepts, namely, the concept of "academic feminism" with the broader meaning of the word "feminism". Do you support the equality of women? So you are a feminist (ka)! And, of course, you automatically support all the main provisions of the feminist theory, which you do not know about, because you were not interested in the topic, and feminists receive very real support from the population, who do not know what they were signed to.
In general, I got sick of it, comrades. But such a good idea was - equality! …
