Right now there is a hashtag going around, #feminismiscancer. Truthfully I couldn’t agree more and for a variety of reasons. Now sure, some you reading this now are probably really attached to the feminist label, so such a hashtag probably has you completely furious.

You probably can not imagine why anyone would say that feminism is a cancer upon human civilization itself. I mean why would you if you put a lot of time and effort into adopting the feminist label into your identity. After all, it’s about equal rights isn’t it?

Truth be told the hashtag was started by a well-known professional troll and provocateur, by the name of Milo Yiannopoulos. Even so he actually has a point. I would say that as an ideology feminism has destroyed more lives than it’s saved.

The reason for this is that when we’re brutally honest, the rhetoric and lifestyle coming out of second wave feminism was most beneficial to lesbian women.

It was beneficial to women who had no interest in men and who needed to be able to live independently. Second Wave was all about women’s liberation, and not making women equal to men. Third wave is not much different.

Basically it was about telling women that they are a slave class to men, and telling them that if they want to be free they have to topple their oppressors. Again this message is more beneficial to lesbian women who have no desire to be the equal to a man, or to make peace with men. It is least beneficial to heterosexual women who actual care about equality and human rights.

Is it any wonder that heterosexual feminist women are so miserable and angry? It’s because their political beliefs about gender boil down to being a house that was not built for them. The modern feminist dogma is a house built by lesbians and political lesbians, for lesbians and political lesbians.

There’s no room for you to play nice with men and respect them if you believe that women are so disadvantaged in the world that they can’t meaningfully consent to heterosexual sex. How can you have a good healthy relationship with a man, if you believe that all heterosexual sex is rape? You simply can’t.

Now certainly people will say that this is merely the beliefs of radical feminists. Alright, well what are you doing to criticize these radical feminists? What are you doing to shutdown their arguments?

Where are you when they shit all over men, and throw the gender dynamics out of balance? Where are you when they complain that a man sitting with his legs slightly apart on the subway, is a display of patriarchial dominance and a kind of assault?

If you are one of these reasonable feminists I’ve heard so much about, it should infuriate you that these women are saying such ridiculous things and treating men badly. You should feel as though the words of these women are a great betrayal, and an assault on what you believe feminism is about. But I have seen few feminists truly take up the task of taking on radical feminists, and when they do they are berated for it.

I’m sorry, but from my perspective, feminism isn’t about equality. It’s always been about advancing women by any means necessary and liberating them from what they believe to be a kind of social slavery imposed on them by men. So it’s not in any way like actual slavery, but you know they felt enslaved, and I suppose that’s all that really matters in feminism; feelings.

In all this, women never took the time to consider the possible negative impacts on society, or they just didn’t care. They don’t seem to care that now there is this huge division between men and women, a large chasm that has opened between the genders. Furthermore these women are burning all the fucking bridges that people are attempting to erect over this rift, making it impossible for society to truly heal.

If you are one of the women who are contented to see men suffer and walk on eggshells to please women, then you are far from being reasonable. I’d think it fair to say that you are not only unreasonable but bordering on sociopathy. Sadly I have seen women like this, who are contented to watch the world burn, because they believe that from the ashes of civilization that they can build a feminist utopia.

Even sadder, I am seeing men who are also contented to watch the trust and love between men and women, wither and die. Feminists may not want to take responsibility for their actions, or the actions of their predecessors, but this is what they’ve wrought nonetheless.

Simply put, feminism is a cancer on civilization itself. Governments are built on communities that are built on stable families. A war between the genders makes stable families an impossibility. Feminism makes women unemployable walking lawsuits, and then asks that the government pick up the financial slack.

It is a fundamental assault on the legs that any government stands on. The suggestion that women have always been by default a slave class, is utterly laughable. You go back through history and find that most cultures not only respected women but knew that there would be no future without them. They understood that women were important members of the community, but that’s not what gender studies teaches women in universities.

If human civilization is a creature, then feminism is the disease devouring it from the inside out, and it will continue to do so until someone stops it, or until there is nothing left. It is not a means of empowering women. It is instead a means of encouraging women to ask the government to provide for them and to force people to be nice to each other. It’s not a real ascent for women, but a descent into unfathomable stupidity, weakness, and moral decay.

You might think that feminism is about equality, but it isn’t. It’s the belief that men are holding your freedom hostage and limiting how you can live your life. But it seems to me that the only thing holding these women back is themselves.

The thing preventing them from feeling represented is them. The only person preventing them from feeling a sense of contentment is you guessed it, them. It is the complete and utter denial of one’s own agency and personal responsibility.

It is the means by which angry mentally ill women with chips on their shoulders can project malice onto the most mundane of actions, and never be punished for it. It is an ugly cancerous mass that can not be sated or bargained with, and the chemo is a single word; no.

We have to look these people in the face and tell them how ridiculous they are, and people need to hold them accountable. Because if we don’t it will devour us alive, until there is nothing left to resemble civilization as we know it.
