Sometimes, I happen into discussions with Men's Rights spokespeople, and before long they start to throw any amount of flames against feminism. For the amount of flaming hatred, however, they seem to be very vague around what exactly feminism is.
When I try to impress upon them that feminism is a theoretical approach that sets out to determine what social, cultural and economic factors play in to the discursive construction of what may be referred to as "gender", combined with a practical set of social techniques that mitigate the negative consequences that follow from this discursive construct, - they seem to be less impressed than one might imagine.
Overall, they seem to think I'm a liar because I've not said anything about women wanting to brutally suppress all men between the iron fisted boots of matriarchy.
What would give them that impression, I wonder?
