There is a pretty vile group on FB. One of my friends has shared a photo of a status they have shared (keeping up lol?) where some goady troll has put that she think being catcalled is worse than going to war as afterall how hard is it to shoot someone?

The conversation moved to how bad feminists are and how all they want to do is 'oppress the evil man'

Now I haven't done 'women's studies'. but I would love to be able to comment back to friend and explain a bit more about what it is..

Apparently - he has read the whole curriculum.... hmm (what all of them....?)

woman studies in laymen’s terms is, all woman are oppressed, looking at a woman is rape etc, all men are rapists, total fear mongering, and that being an obnoxious bratty child equals being a strong independent woman, my daughter has started being lectured about how men are privileged over woman, she is 11. it puts back any woman movements many years, and is being boycotted by first and second wave fems as ridiculous, it breeds shite like this tbh. oh and woman can join a infantry platoon as a front line troop and do a better job than men, it’s all about women being better than men, and patriarchy and the privilege pyramid, utter nonsense but then any criticism is misogyny and sexist crap.

(if you want to read their bio

We are anti-feminist because we believe that feminism is not, in any way, a quest for gender equality. Instead, we believe that feminism is a quest for female supremacy masquerading as a quest for gender equality. We also believe that feminism is largely responsible for the "war on men and boys", and that it has done a great deal of damage to our society, namely through the destruction of the nuclear family.
Long Description
This page is by anti-feminists for anti-feminists. We are anti-feminist because we have taken the time to learn the history of feminism and understand that feminism is a movement rooted in the hatred of men that has greatly damaged our society by slowly persuading political powers to pass gender biased laws that, today, blatantly discriminate against men and boys, and has been destroying the nuclear family for decades. This is in addition to a gender-biased media and gender biased education system.

Given the strict policies of Facebook, combined with the divisive topics of discussion posted on this page, any feminists who insist on ignoring simple questions, disrespecting others and making trouble will be banned immediately and without warning.

In short, feminism wants to abolish men’s right to freedom of speech, so the policy of this page is to stifle feminists’ intent on banning this page.)

that it has done a great deal of damage to our society, namely through the destruction of the nuclear family.

or - because women will insist on fair treatment, and leave men who don't give it to them, and encourage society to support them in this, women are bad. We want to go back to having a woman at home doing all our washing/cleaning/cooking/childcare/available for sex, that was when life and society was good (for men)

gender biased laws - such as?

This is in addition to a gender-biased media and gender biased education system - run by majority men, presented by majority men, written by majority men (taught at primary at least by majority women - although most primary heads are men) - Men! This is in your power to change!

Honestly though - you don't normally get anywhere with these people - last time I engaged with an MRA we had a bit of back and forth, where I maintained a reasonable tone, backed up with links to evidence, whilst he raved a bit, and he just stopped talking to me. If you engage and start getting angry and posting without careful thinking you play right into their hands because you will say something they can twist.

I'd just ignore them they sound like an utter bunch of wankers.

I mean a brief, cursory glance at the situation around the world shows that the situation is very far indeed from women being equal, let alone oppressing men.

What they are saying is they don't give a fuck about violence and sexual violence meted out against women and girls, they aren't interested. This makes them wankers not worth engaging with.

Oh actually I just looked at their page a bit and they don't believe in racism either - talking about racism perpetuates it apparently.

So all in all, best left well alone to stew together.

I'll bet you any money the 'gender-biased laws' are those that wont force a woman to continue pregnancy to term when she wants to abort. The bastards.

So yes, wankers not worth engaging with sums it up, i think
