Dear Menslib- we've been trying to tell you.
I'd like to offer some words for r/menslib. It's in reference to your recent AMA with Chuck Derry from the Duluth Model Organization.. You guys were surprised at what you heard, and how bad it was....but we weren't. We knew this was going to happen, because we've been trying to warn you about political feminism and things like the Duluth Model for years. The groups and figures at the top of the hierarchy of feminism are backwards and sexist and disingenuous. The Duluth Model isn't some 'fringe idea', it's the single most influential social model on police MO for domestic violence in the US.
You guys seem to be on the cusp of realizing that your view on the modern day feminist movement isn't quite how the real world works.
We told you this. We told you this is what feminist literature actually says if you bother to read it. We told their buzzwords such as
"to those with privilege, equality feels like oppression"
It's flat-earth tier. In fact it's worse, because it's actual harmful. This is what we told you, the more political feminist organizations actively support, perpetrate, and lobby for the legalization of domestic violence against men, and automatic exemption for prison for violent female criminals.
I'm going to be honest and blunt- subs like ML are part of the problem of the following comment:
I grew up in a household where my mother was emotionally/verbal abusive to my father (as well as the kids) and it distinctly felt like Chuck discounted that and viewed it as less serious, as it was female-led and received.
Because Chuck follows feminist theory. Not because he is patriarchal, not because he believes in "hetero-normative" beliefs, IT IS BECAUSE HE IS A FEMINIST.
You guys need to wake up and accept how bad things really are.
You have been lied too. What you believe about the MRM is a lie.
