Misandry: Does It Exist? If Not, Why?

Over the weekend, I got caught up wallowing in the mud with a social justice warrior. I made the mistake of pointing out how men are not allowed to express opinions about gender. The SJW ended the lecture with “men should just shut up.”

Is that irony? I have a hard time telling. Anyways, I digress.

I pointed out the misandry of that statement which earned me another lecture on how there is no such thing. This raises the question, why would there not be such a thing as misandry?

The best answer I could find is that there is no such thing because… well because feminists say so.

If that is the case what do we call an episode of a sitcom where the wife character drops a croquet ball down a shaft onto the husband character (of course, a scream of pain and canned laughter followed). What about the overuse of the bumbling dad trope often found in sitcoms, cartoons, and commercials. How about a book titled “Boys are stupid… throw rocks at them?”

Yes, misogyny is a problem. I am not going to argue that it is not nor should there be any question about it. My point is that respect and fairness is a two way street. You do not create equality and combat bias by treating one group as not deserving of the same respect and fairness.

  1. “Men should just shut up?” heck, no..men say the most amazing things. Next time, just hand a copy of this post to the lunatic that thinks of themselves as a feminist. Feminism is equality between the sexes..not dominion over it. Sheesh!
