Coz they have nothing better to do. To be honest they have been brainwashed in a negative manner.
I'm a feminist and what I was taught was that it stood for equality between genders. That men and women are equals.

If you believe so too, most would call you a feminist. It is only radical feminism that doesn't also think about men's rights.

Living a life in a woman's clothes, I have been ridiculed and almost killed for being a woman.

Have you seen Emma Watson's speech for the UN on feminism? I think you should.

Gender equality had only been gradually introduced in the last 180 years or so and it will still be a while before the collective 'karma' balances itself, as each of us learns to honor and integrate both the masculine and feminine within. When humanity has reached this stage, the whole planet will vibrate in unity consciousness, and everyone will be able to access their inner child to cocreate heaven on earth.

Just as someone who has suffered abuse, might initially respond with withdrawal, rejection, anger or hatred, the collective is still feeling this animosity consciously or subconsciously due to personal traumatic experiences be it in this lifetime or past lifetimes. And it is not only females harboring grudges against the males, it goes vice versa, as we have all been both males and females in various lifetimes.

It takes time to heal wounds, sometimes going lifetimes after lifetimes, releasing some while picking up more along the way. Honoring the healing process is critical in our journey back to wholeness; learning to forgive, to let go, to disidentify oneself with the victim/perpetrator mentality, to realize why our souls chose to experience this individually or collectively and to transcend these experiences.

While many are still walking through these delicate and vulnerable phase in life, the best gift we can give to ourselves and everyone is to be kind and radiate that higher love from within. Love heals everything.

Feminists don't hate men. Misandrists hate men.

I appreciate everyone's thoughtful perspective on this most unusual and troubling trend; thank you for taking time to help one better understand the dynamics of this matter.

Everytime you make sweeping generalizations about a whole group, it is bound to be wrong. There are many kinds of Feminists, and many women have different feelings about that term.

I call myself a Feminist because I believe in equal rights for women and for men. How is that hateful?

It is unfortunate to see some have chosen to feel triggered by the question, but please understand it is simply a question, not a declaration.

Perhaps it might contribute more of meaningful value to the conversation if one chose to answer the question directly, rather than first posing a question in response to a question.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but there will always be some things that offend a feminist."

Thank you...it is good to see some have a sense of humor. Reminds us that we cannot take life too seriously.

Being a feminist means you believe man and women are equal, and that both should be treated equally by all facets of society. We do not live in a world of equality yet, although things seem to be getting better at some places of this planet. What it seems to be is that many women who have experienced extreme inequality haven't healed from it and, because of that, seem to fight fiercely in the opposite direction. Their lack of consciousness seem to tell them that 'the same way men never took care of me, Im not going to take care of them" and begin spreading messages of hate, similar to the ones they've got throughout their lives. They're wounded, and this is affecting their perception of what feminism is.

Like my favorite speaker often points out feminism today is not fundamental feminism. The new wave of feminism is full of braggadocios manhating and blind activists. There should be more feminists against Islamic/Muslim culture but there isn't. It is easily the most oppressive main stream culture towards women today. I'm against it almost entirely on that principle alone. Feminists in America are more worried about misleading wage gap statistics and being under represented in the fields of math and science.

You dutifully pointed out they're negatively affecting what feminism is because they're pushing away some of their biggest supporters in men. I'm not sure they're willing to accept men and women are different biologically and mentally. The difference between men and women in this area is men know and accept their weaknesses a bit more and women tie their self worth into them. Just something I've found in relationships and friendships with women.
Paul, I don't know what you mean by "you have chosen to be triggered." (?) I was simply responding to your question, which ASSUMES that Feminists hate men. You give no proof, nor can you. It is not a question which CAN be answered. So I was responding in kind.
