Is modern-day feminism meant to empower women by bringing the men down or is it just selective?

First things first, I”m ANTI-FEMINIST, so my opinion on this matter may not be as objective as I would wish.

In recent years, feminists have been more vocal, still fighting for equality. They have defended women when they thought they were judged on the basis of Gender. Which is a good thing.

Unfortunately, modern day feminism has not for one instance called out the mistakes made by women and have strongly condemned the same mistakes done to women.

Case and point, earlier this week nudes were leaked. No one was called out when the guy’s were leaked. But when the woman\’s leaked, it was made to the news.

So, is modern day feminism meant to empower women by bringing the men down or is it just selective?

    Okay. First of all anti-feminist means you’re against equal rights or you align yourself with traditional gender roles.
    If your problem. Seems to be with toxic part of feminism and that is just common sense.
    Now let me address the Gov vs Brenda’s nudes issue. As a woman I was enraged at the spread for Brenda’s nudes cause I empathized more a fellow woman. There’s this sense of solidarity because of all the shit women have faced.
    On the Governors side, I personally did not see said nudes but I saw a lot of conversation about. I was disappointed at the people spreading this but not enraged, I was not really angry. Why I asked myself? I think it’s because as a man, he is a beneficiary of the patriarchy, I did not emphasize with him because we have nothing in common. This school of thought is wrong I know, but after years of being taught a certain way of thought and life, that takes a while to unlearn.
    It is why I am more likely to speak up when a man is physically or sexually abused cause that I can emphasize with.
    For me, it is an ingrained thing that I am still learning to fight.
    And yes, I consider myself a feminist

    I wouldn’t classify myself as a feminist or an anti-feminist. I am one of those who do not like being put in a box. That said, I constantly find myself disagreeing with modern-day feminists due to the extremities they often promote.

    By seeking to ‘dismantle the patriarchy’ what does this actually mean? Since most nations are built by men in that nation(most constructions of buildings and roads are done by men) Should all the inventions and innovations made by men thus be destroyed? Or is it the patriarchy when it comes to positions of power? If you look closely, the positions that modern-day feminists are fighting for are usually the two percent of jobs at the higher echelons of power like CEOs of big companies political seats, and so forth.

    Why don’t we see them fighting for more dangerous jobs that most men work in like firefighters and army officers, or work harder jobs like plumbers and electricians? Thus to me, the feminist movement, is more of a political movement, seeking positions of power rather than a social movement seeking the true liberation of women from the social shackles that hold them back.

  2. i think maybe what we call toxic feminism is feminists who have decided to fight just as dirty as the patriarchy. take no prisoners kind of warfare and now that it is effective you have people labelling it toxic.
