Erratic thinking, blending in ideas to form a logic which doesn't exist yet.
I’m abandoning feminism. There are too many crazy people who believe that men should be made less, rather than giving women more.
There are people who think that it’s fine that women commit more assault than men due to the low risk of legal action. They say that “it’s fine, because when men do it, the outcome is almost always grim. Men are too strong.”
They would want to make men physically weaker, (or even emotionally) as to not have that capacity. They would see it okay to lessen the (physical or emotional) strength of 50% of all humanity.
NO. Just - no.
I want the female 50% to be stronger! I want more engagement between sexes. I want fewer boundaries. I will understand women more whenever I can. I want women to stop insulting male intelligence, so that men can feel secure about sharing what they have.
I know men have advantages, but there is virtually no support for the healthy white male. You might think that’s okay. But what happens when a person with no support falls apart? The very things women fear.
It’s self-perpetuating. I’d rather brother-hood and sister-hood.
But I will NOT be insulted for being a white male. Unless you are lucky enough to be part of “the 1%”, there are no handouts. There is no “men’s study grant for engineering”. Expectations on our emotions run ridiculously high. And every personal attack is supposedly on our “fragile male ego”.
I will not have a movement of “equality” make 50% of all humans weaker. I will be part of a movement that makes 100% of humans stronger. No insults of sex (or race).
Why? Why am I not a feminist?
Because, before all of that, I am a Transhumanist.
Because, before I am a feminist, I am a Futurist.
Women, nay - my fellow humans can join me.
Mud-flingers who want to hold onto their genetic ties (sex or race) and drag down other human fellows, are scum.
There is too much scum in feminism.
I am done. I am not a feminist. I am a human.
I want humanity to be more.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
So, after my rant yesterday, I discover this speech that Emma Watson does at the UN.
Pretty much the best thing ever.
If you attack men who point out misandry; this is for you:
Don’t expect a gentlemanly rapport if you generalize and attack an entire subclass of the human species. Some people are just pointing out facts. Facts are something you can use to work things out… or turn into a anti-male shame-attack. If you started getting angry at men just by reading this, look deep inside yourself and brace yourself.
Now, I just basically want to tell you where you stand:
- If you want equality, this is great! Say so and say it proudly.
- If you hate men, for “just being men”, or having some kind of “biological edge” or whatever, then you are just as shit as the men you hate. Respect your fellow human. We are all different. If you can’t manage that, then state your problem nice and loudly, misandrist.
- If you hate men and seep your misandry into feminism, you are just as bad as the men you hate - aaaaand a hypocrite. And a coward. You are worse than the men you hate… probably. No… I’d say definitely.
I mean there are some shit, worse-than-dirt men out there, but there are some manipulative bitches out and about too.
The road to perfect co-existence and compassion is a two-way street. If you want to go to a verbal war instead of peace, then what makes you such a good feminist spokes-person?
You see, I like feminism because men and women can learn to share rights and responsibilities. We can both point out things that are backward or harmful to equality and work from there. It’s cool because we work out advances in culture that can make all of human-kind prosper. This, is feminism.
But instead of this, I see sarcasm, wishes to make men genetically weaker, attacks on people who point out the hypocrites… And I ask myself, “Why?”. Why do you think that you somehow have a moral high-ground from which to mock half of humanity?
This is not your playground to point out how shit men are. If you think it is, fuck right off. You are no longer “woman” or “man” to me - you’re just antagonist troll scum. Sub-human piece of shit. State your intentions for fuck’s sake!
And take criticism. Nobody gets it right the first time. If the voice of a little person says, that they see something unfair, maybe ask why. Maybe he/she isn’t the fist to think this. Don’t just assume that they know nothing and shame them with your powerful, edgy social group.
You have a choice, feminist. You can try and be a better human or be a troll.

Liberate me from these financial chains, so that I may fully embrace my meaningful life. Do this, so that I may design for a living. Do this, so that I can make an impact upon this world.
