I think I just realized why some gamers, comic fans and MRAs are so hateful towards women. Why they believe that feminism is to blame for their inability to get dates/get laid. Why they believe that all feminists must be man-hating lesbians.
Think about it. A good many of these men also think pick-up artistry works. Or that being A Nice Guy results in the sex. Its this attitude that women are games, dating sims -you make the right moves, you say the right words, the only result is the sex.
But feminism challenges that notion. Feminism advocates for women to speak up, to assert their identities as people. It challenges their notion that women are inherently different, mystical unicorn beings that must be tamed, and cannot truly be fathomed for they are Not Men. Feminism asserts that women and men come in all stripes, and that - unlike games - the outcome is variable and there is no rule book.
And in challenging these notions, it challenges the identity of entitled boys who were raised thinking that they were owed a woman. It puts, on full display, that the inadequacy lies not in how well they can play the game, but in how well they themselves function within human society. It points the blame squarely at them, sternly chastises them, for playing by the rules.
And because many of these men are entitled, spoiled by a life of privilege that - even though many of them were bullied and turned to nerddom because of this emotional trauma - told them they were owed a job and a beautiful woman, when confronted with a challenge that it may, perhaps, be their own shortcomings as a person that prevents them from the happy ending they desire, it makes them angry. They reject the notion that it’s their fault, that THEY have to change, and instead place the blame on that which enables their fantasies to shake off the shackles of perfection and demand to be acknowledged as people: feminism.
to everyone that isn’t a misogynistic, entitled pissbaby: raise your sons not to be entitled pissbabies. Tell them they aren’t owed jack by anyone or anything, and if they want to advance in life, have good sex, marry, have children, have a good job - they need to work not only on the skills to DO those things, but on the skills that cause people to think “yes, this is a person whose company I enjoy and doesn’t offend me on a soul level.”
To every man who blames feminism and women for his own setbacks in life: grow up. Nobody owes you a single damn thing. Instead of wasting your energy on trying to change others, change yourself into someone people will like. If you’re response is “BUT I CANT THIS IS WHO I AM” - sorry, buddy, but who you are is a jerk, and even though movies and TV make jerks seem like cool guys, the reality is spiteful assholes generally don’t make it too far in life.
