What is misogyny? A few points from Wikipedia:
1. It is a hatred or strong prejudice against women and is a viewpoint that can be held by both men and women. Where would that come from?
2. Misogyny can be traced back to the origins of Modern civilization, such as in Greece and Judea, in which stories and legends on the Fall of Man into a world of tragedy and death had been brought about by a woman. Where would that come from?
Stories of women ruining the lives and powers of Men go back into antiquity. Why?
When Weininger says, “No men who really think deeply about women retain a high opinion of them; men either despise women or they have never thought seriously about them.” Why?
Where does this ‘misogyny’ come from and what is it really?
Imagine yourself, as a younger man, before your life experiences taught you better. How did you perceive women? In the Western world, you were probably brought up to see girls as ‘sugar and spice’, boys of course, just ‘puppy dogs’ tails’.
This conveniently sets up a hierarchy between young girls and boys which goes something like this:
Girls = Good
Boys = Not good
Boys consequently are taught that it is down to him to get the girl. She is wonderful and great, lovely and caring, pretty and warm and she is worth the effort because when you get her she will make your life amazing. You have to admit, it’s a pretty good pitch.
In the same breath, society (through the media, parenting and schooling) will impart to the girls, statements such as ‘you’re so pretty, all the boys will be climbing over each other to hold your hand’, ‘you’re a princess!’ and ‘you can get any guy you want.’
None of which sounds particularly oppressive in my opinion. Well not for the girls anyway.
So these boys become young men. These young men go into teenage life worshipping the female. They look at her little cute mannerisms, the way she plays with her hair, the sound of her laughter, the twinkle in her eyes when she smiles.
They are smitten with them, with their femininity and with their differences. It doesn’t take a lot of coersion to convince young men that they will do almost anything to court, win over and protect their woman. He wants her to be happy, because her happiness is his happiness.
Up to now, misogyny doesn’t exist. Therefore something must happen between believing girls are great, to thinking girls suck.
Something these men wouldn’t want to happen, but it is done to them anyway. Things that seem to go against what he thought growing up. He tries to understand why the girls of his younger dreams are behaving in such a bad way. ‘What would she do that for?’ They ask themselves.
Eventually these bad experiences wear men down until, for their own survival, they must finally, against all desires and wishes, against genetic imperative and dreams, push women away and keep them there, for whenever they let these women, these predators near, they always want to lash out with a knife to his heart.
This weapon, forged from narcissisim, dissimulation, selfishness and a whole host of other traits and then sharpened by feminism and corporatism hides behind almost every modern ’empowered’ womans’ back. This weapon that men throughout history have been on the receiving end of seems to come naturally to ‘the fairer sex.’ It grows from their beliefs in their own immunity from their behaviour. The separation of consequences to their actions, which seems to ’empower’ them to show their true nature.
And no matter how feminists try to twist it, misogyny is a reaction, not an action. It is a self-defence mechanism when all else fails. It also serves to force women into a postion of realisation. Men can hold women accountable through misogyny. When a man says ‘fuck women, they make me sick,’ how many people ask him ‘why do they make you sick?’
Most men do not need to ask, they already know.
The feminist usage of misogyny is a feeble attempt at turning a female-created reaction in men, to a label of dishonour that men should avoid (and conveniently distracts cause and effect again). Of course, the behaviour of these women hasn’t improved, it has worsened. If anything, misogyny is needed now more than ever.
I’m a misogynist. Hatred of women? No. Awareness of the evils of women. Yes.
Women have many evils. They have exibited them throughout history. Hence the ancient stories involving them in ‘misogynist’ ways (read: accountable).
A man who has had nothing but wonderful, productive and trusting experiences of women will not have bad things to say about them. But don’t count on meeting many of them any time soon.
Nowadays, the term is used by anyone to try and silence them. The slightest hint of a man calling a woman a name or holding her to account is met with cries of ‘woman hater’ and ‘misogynist pig’.
What they are really saying is ‘how dare you call bullshit on women’s behaviour! How dare you voice your disapproval! We are princesses, goddesses and queens!
We Do No Wrong.
The fact remains. Misogynists are created by women. Men have cautious attitudes to women because women forced them to. Misogyny is a symptom of our time. To be one only means you have experienced what most men have experienced.
Never allow women to define you or your views, for, like a singularity, she will only distort and twist reality beyond sense and logic, to the extent where all space-time paths lead to Her.
Remember: Action – Reaction.
And no amount of self-aggrandisement is going to change that.
