    Why Are So Many Campus Feminists Anti-Male?
    https://www.mindingthecampus.org/201...sts-anti-male/
    By Warren Farrell May 7, 2018

    In 1970, I was elected to the Board of Directors of the National Organization for Women in New York City. This quickly triggered invitations to speaking on campuses throughout the U.S.—from Yale to Harvard to Stanford. Each engagement led to an average of three more.

    However, after starting hundreds of men’s and women’s groups — one of which was joined by John Lennon — I began integrating the life experiences of college men into my talks. I soon invited my entire audiences of college men and women to “walk a mile in each other’s moccasins”—the men in “men’s beauty contests” to experience the beauty contest of everyday life in which every woman participates; and then the women to take a few of the many risks of sexual rejection the guys typically experience.

    The feminist groups that sponsored me loved the male beauty contests. My invitation for the women to risk the sexual rejection experienced by men was more complex: first, the college women found it much harder than they anticipated—but 70% or so could get up the nerve to take risks. Second, the ones who couldn’t get up the nerve had an emotional experience of the type of rejection men typically experience. And third, the feminist leaders on campus who were my usual sponsors—and had just been cheering during the men’s beauty contest that the men were “finally getting it”—suddenly either held back or left the theater once I asked the women to “walk a mile in the men’s moccasins.”

    It was then—in the early seventies—that I began to experience that the campus feminists wanted men to understand women but had no interest in understanding men. I saw the handwriting on the wall: if I were to persist in my journey from ideology to compassion, I’d be forfeiting a very rewarding career. I cannot say the decision was easy—income, awards, media were all at stake. But I did decide to persist. And sure enough, my speaking engagements on campus went from more than I could handle to the following experience at the University of Toronto in 2012....

    I don't know. The most feminist prof I had was the one I've mentioned before, who taught my freshman lit class. She was happily married to a man, who I had for another class. They had a happy marriage, and he was not a total wimp or even an Alan Alda type. Normal guy. Maybe it was being happy that made the difference for her.

    Jordan Peterson has a lot to say about this. Check out his video's on YouTube. It is basically the inevitable result of the feminist movement once it lost its way. Why don't modern feminists mention Islam and its degradation of women? Why are they mostly silent on all the #MeToo stories that deal with liberal violating women? Because they only want to draw attention to events and ideologies that support their narrative and the rest be damned and forgotten.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    Just think like me:

    Every girl is two girls.

    In which I'm respected and detested simultaneously. Boom. On to the next plenary psych-lab disquisition.

    The next two paragraphs of the linked article:

    A campus association at the University of Toronto (called Canadian Association for Equality, or CAFE), heard that I was working (with John Gray) on a book to be called The Boy Crisis. They had heard that my findings went deeper than boys throughout the developed world dropping out of school more than girls, but that they were also experiencing problems with mental health (e.g., mass shootings; depression; suicide); physical health (e.g., obesity; sperm count), and future economic productivity.

    The book wouldn’t be published until March 2018, so no one had read it. Nevertheless, the feminists on and off campus, catalyzed by the Socialist Workers Party, organized a campaign to vigilantly rip down all the posters that were used to publicize my talk—usually moments after they were put up. And the night of the talk, they formed a human blockade of the entrance doors that you can witness in the video below.
    Using round numbers, there were 40 years between when the writer was accepted and when he was sent to Siberia. To some degree that evolution was foreseeable and predicted, but I think modern feminazis have gone much farther than even their harshest critics of the 60s and 70s predicted.

    I think you hit the nail on the head there.
