A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!
It’s funny because I know too many women who are sexist against men. Sexism goes both ways, honey.
"Sexism goes both ways, honey."
Nope. Let me explain you a thing - the very act of adding “honey” to this is very patronizing and that pisses me off.
A note from the wikipedia entry on misandry:
In his 1997 book The Gender Knot: Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy, sociologist Allan G. Johnson stated that accusations of man-hating have been used to put down feminists and shift attention onto men in a way that reinforces male-centered culture. Johnson said that comparisons between misogyny and misandry are misguided because mainstream culture offers no comparable anti-male ideology. He says in his book that accusations of misandry work to discredit feminism because “people often confuse men as individuals with men as a dominant and privileged category of people.” He wrote that given the “reality of women’s oppression, male privilege, and men’s enforcement of both, it’s hardly surprising that every woman should have moments where she resents or even hates ‘men’.”
While granted, Wikipedia is not how I would normally try to win an argument, given that the citation will take you to the ebook version of Johnson’s book, I feel it is legitimate.
So wow, you know some people who maybe dislike men. Do you have to deal with the constant issues of battle the male patriarchy in the workplace, as well as dealing with the opposite sex who think they have a right to your time and your personal space to the point that you start to worry for your personal safety? Do you have lawmakers trying to constantly control your body and what you do with your body?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
