Actual problems with feminism
- excluding POC, mogai, disabled and especially trans women
- ignoring issues that do not involve the U.S
- not realizing that feminism is for women to realize that they can do what they want and thrashing women who are feminine or wear religious attire
Not problems of feminism
- one teenage girl saying she hates men because 5 men catcalled her while walking home from school
also actual problems of feminism:
Famous Feminists like Andrea Dworkin literally suggesting that the genocide of all men would be a good thing. People sending Erin Pizzy death threats over her findings that domestic violence is mainly reciprocal and her vocalizing the need for male domestic abuse shelters.
Now, while one teenage girl saying she hates men in a moment of anger, clearly not a sincere statement, doesn’t seem like a big problem-it can become one. Because when minor transgressions pass you begin to see it as acceptable ideology. And that’s the same reason that even though catcalling is as minor as a teenager saying they hate men, you earnestly used it as and example of something that upset this hypotheticl teenage girl People think this trivial thing is a problem. So then, this trivial acceptance of ‘girls rule, boys drool!’ ‘imagine a bowl of mms!’ ‘yes all men!’ is just as important your catcalling, it feels the same to a man as your catcalling does to a teenage girl. It helps to build a world where larger transgressions can occur.
