I’m Not Like (Those Other People)

One of my friends and I have been talking for some time about the “I’m not like those other girls” syndrome (let’s call it INLTOG, for short). We both had fallen prey to it, and sometimes, I think I sometimes fall into that trap still though I try to be more aware of my thoughts and actions.

Of course we are all unique. We all have our different quirks and talents and things we do. But when it comes down to it… are we really all that different from other people? We become like the people we spend time with. Anyway, why do we want to be so different from other people? As I’ve thought more about INLTOG, I’ve realized that part of my reasoning has come from all the times I have felt left out. Sometimes I don’t feel like a girl because I don’t know much about makeup or fashion and I don’t like to talk about boys all the time. Sometimes I’ve felt isolated by this fact because a lot of the girls around me always seem to be talking about something I don’t know much about. I’ve been excluded by a lot of them, too. But the truth is… A. Sometimes I am the kind of girl that’s more girly. It depends on my mood, but, more importantly, B. Does it really matter if I’m a stereotype? Doesn’t being a woman mean so much more than just the outside – or, rather, the artificiality that our society tries to create? In a world where girls are raised to cut down other women, to take pride in that “they’re not like that,” I think it’s important that we women stick together. And, no, I don’t mean in the radical feminist get-rid-of-all-the-men way. I mean in the way of being decent human beings and helping one another.

HOWEVER, another thought has occurred to me, and this is that this kind of thinking does not take place only among women, or only in secular society. It seems, sadly, to be a Continue reading “I’m Not Like (Those Other People)”

The Horrifying Side of Feminism

Ever since becoming an ex-feminist, I find something nearly every day to shock me and horrify me how toxic feminism is.

This comment from a young man on a friend’s Facebook post took the cake:

“as a boy, i still say kill all men. kill them. if that includes me, ill be sadly collateral. men are awful, so fucking awful.”

I would have commented on the post, but unfortunately, I had to leave my computer and when I returned, the entire post was gone. However, I distinctly remember feminists answering this young man’s comment, encouraging him on.

I find this so sad. So many young men and boys are growing up in a climate where they are told that they are toxic, that there’s something wrong with them, and there’s nothing they can do about it – they will always be horrible, horrible people.

I went onto one of my anti-feminism Facebook pages (Women Against FeminismĀ – the group includes men as well). I got a few very good comments back that I would like to share with you all.

“The propaganda pushed by the feminist movement has caused men to become weak and lose their sense of self-worth in society. It’s shit like this that makes me proud to say that I’ll fight tooth and nail every day to make sure that feminist snakes are exposed as the true evil in our society.”

“I am tempted not to pity him.

But that’s just the issue. Men and boys have been divided from themselves/

The hand that rocks the cradle has been raising boys that hate themselves, to destroy themselves and other men.

That same hand will not acknowledge the male sucide epidemic, the fact that under traditionalism, boys before this have also been raised to hate and destroy themselves and other men. WIth oly the difference that at least previously boys were allowed a childhood. And a chance to get out via education, innovation, meeting and marrying and making friends with the right people.

If a man did the right thing, he might be able to be successful. Now even if he is successful, he will become a prey to woman. Taking his assets. Taking his children. Its either invisible and homeless or dead, or a target on his back.”

I saved this post, planningĀ to write more once I finish exams. However, I think it would best to just leave the comments as they are and let them speak for themselves. More coming after exams are done.
