When feminists ask why people think they hate all men, one need only point them to the recent Twitter hashtag #killallmen.
None of the tweets surprise me. Many feminists have a long history of making nasty, hate-filled comments without any prompt. Just ask the red head from the Toronto men’s rights event.
Likewise, I am not surprised by feminists supporting, excusing, and minimizing the hashtag. After all, this is same mentality that prompted scores of feminists to spend hours flaming the #INeedMasculismBecause hashtag.
The hastag simply shows what many people have seen before: plenty of feminists harbor a deep hatred of men, and despite frequent feminist protests to the contrary, it appears many feminists either turn a blind eye to it or tacitly support it.
Certainly all feminists do not think that way, yet after the hashtag trending, I could not find much feminist criticism of it, despite that so many of them supported it.
Here is a thought: if after fifty years in the mainstream people still think your movement hates another group of people, it is time to consider the very real probability that they are right. That is the only way to explain how a hastag like #killallmen could trend for so long and yet no feminists seems to acknowledge it even happened.
