I wrote about Liana K’s message to antifeminists two months ago. I thought I expressed my opinions well, however, Hannah Wallen released a series of video responses that I think did a much better job. Wallen spoke to a number of issues I missed or barely touched.
One of the elements to the divide between feminists and everyone else is that feminists seem unwilling to let go of parts of their ideology. For many feminists, protecting feminism supersedes objective analysis. Wallen noted this in her fourth video: the concern seems to be converting people to feminism rather than considering their complaints.
I think we see this play out on the left far too many times, particularly with the latest presidential election. (I will write about the election. At the moment, I am gathering information pertaining to a number of points.) It seems too many people on the left fail to realize that if you want people to support you that you need to be willing to listen to them and not merely lecture them.
Liana K’s rant comes across as a lecture. Rather than listening to men’s rights activists’ complaints, she pushes her own views, often of to the point of dismissing legitimate issues like sexual violence against males.
It is not that I think she does this out of malice. Like Wallen, I think people like Liana K do it because their ideology is so important to them that they either do not realize they do it or they rationalize why it is not that bad.
