If you think sexism towards men doesn’t exist, you’re extremely ignorant, rude, and careless.

Hahahahahaha internalized misogyny at its finest wow

That’s not what sexism or racism tho, you can’t change definitions to make yourself a victim so you can have a pity party. Also, you aren’t oppressed. You’re complaining on a computer/tablet/phone with wifi. Stop.

Okay sorry, you have a key misunderstanding of what these words mean. Oppression is institutional and it comes from a history of justifying violence and shaming women into a role of submission and servitude.
There are also different forms of oppression, I am definitely privileged in some ways that other aren’t (white, cis, employed & financially stable, in post-secondary etc) but that doesn’t negate my argument. That’s kind of the idea of checking your privilege.

I strongly suggest you do some reading and try to understand feminist theory before you go telling people that they don’t know how to define key parts of their ideology.

????? Me saying sexism towards men exists and that sexism is bad, is somehow my internalized hate for women..? Wow. Some people on this website

Okay because you’re very young I will try to explain for u this thing. Oppression (sexism, racism, homophobia etc) is shown through institutionalized violence or attitudes that bias the public against a certain group. So in the case of sexism, it can be shown by (just one example) Billboard Ads. Most of the adds women see are thin white women telling them that this is a standard of beauty (the only standard of beauty that they are exposed to). So, when you come to hate your body for being anything other than that standard (which was set by men, incidentally. Go look up who the people setting those beauty standards are) you’re internalizing their hatred for the average women.

Rewinding to why you can’t be sexist towards men tho: OK so in the simplest words, you can’t be sexist towards men because men (straight white men) do not face violence or oppressive attitudes on an institutional level. Like, the wage gap works in their favor, men aren’t shamed for exposing their body, they aren’t called out to on the streets by women, they aren’t followed home by women and attacked & murdered in alleyways. I could go on but my point is that when bad things happen to men (like domestic violence, sexual assault etc) it is absolutely horrible, but it is NOT a result of centuries of grooming to make the public accept that this violence is okay or even not violence at all.

Bad things can happen to men but it doesn’t happen BECAUSE they are men and that’s the key difference.

All the women in my life are so incredible. I feel blessed to have grown up with all these nuanced, strong, amazing personalities. They have taught me everything worth knowing about the world (so far) and I trust that they will only enrich my life further in the future.

anxiety really cramps my style like how am I going to seem chill and fun if I often start trembling and breathing heavily and developing a look of impending doom in my eyes

…for someone else to point out that our college rape epidemic *might possibly* be influenced by the hardcore porn all these college guys watched, starting when they were age 12.
But no, they’re blaming like, underwear ads and girls who can’t hold their liquor.
The elephant in the room says Hello.
