Feminists, the public, top of the food chain types (Dworkin-types) were the chicks we all knew in high school that didn’t get asked to the prom, were rejected by the hotties in the cheer leading squad, that were never included at the lunch table in elementary school. Girls are cruel to girls, I saw it all through my days and fast-forward to my daughter’s days in school, nothing changed. Girls are catty and cruel to one another, they recruit allies, they name-call, they hassle those of the lower social order all through school, the lower caste were invisible. Cliques of hotties were a terror to the uglies.
I think the ugly chicks took that out into the world, their rejection-syndromes, their suppressed rage, their hatred, and projected all that onto men. Add in divorce, their daddy issues and Mommy’s second and third husbands and her neglect issues, I figure it’s a pretty toxic stew. When I sit and wonder how, in this society when women have it all, why are they still so PISSED? Their childhoods. Who are the pissed off feminists? Ugly broads, and I believe the root of their rage goes beyond the social justice stuff and instead is anchored in their childhoods. I’m no shrink, but anyone concur? In the end, women being cruel to other women is the larger factor and then they project onto the easy target-White men, who are cowed.
The Manosphere states that females in general have an in-group bias, the feminine imperative. No matter how poorly they are treated by individual females, they will align themselves with what they perceive is best for women in general. What pays big dividends these days is being part of a victim group that is oppressed by a big bad other. Or rather, perceived to be oppressed by a big bad other. If the people who are “oppressing” are part of your group, then this scheme does not work so well.
Furthermore, people naturally want to be part of group, ideally one considered to be both powerful and virtuous. As we all know, women of today are powerful, they hold the cards. Additionally, they claim the virtuosity title, with nobody disputing them. With a stacked deck like that, what female would not want to identify with them.
In times past, people, both male and female, identified with their ethnicity and/or race; surely not so much gender. These days, we are told that we are supposed to be one big human family. However, that all breaks down when there are group based spoils to be had. Then identification with the group is intense.
Back to the original comment. We have girls who have been through the meat grinder of school with other girls who have been taught few morals. Yes, they are pissed. Yes, it is not healthy. But somehow, we in our non-judgmental awesomeness, allow it. These victims feel alone and marginalized, and latch onto the group that says that they have their back. In reality, they were (and are, for the truth will set you free) their oppressors.
