Well, it all began a while ago, when I saw a poll for the "Sexist of the year" on one Russian feminist site, and it featured one of my favourite scientists. I started looking into that issue, found out the quote they used to accuse him of sexism was taken out of context and misinterpreted, and made a post about it on Facebook. It attracted my feminist friends there, and they started telling me he ought to watch what he says, he ought to be more professional, and so on. Somehow I ended up arguing with one of them about whether human evolution still continues (actually, it does). This was the first part.
The second part occurred a few weeks later, when I made a joke about SJWs and another my friend suddenly started protecting them. This time it developed with much more drama, even his mom appeared there to tell me off and advise me to educate myself in gender studies. People from the previous conflict also joined. In the end I took down all my posts related to both issues and stopped replying to them.
I used to have a better opinion on Russian feminists. I saw them reposting rape statistics, advocating for gender equality in Muslim regions of Russia, spreading awareness about family abuse, and I thought they are better than 3rd wave ones. But it turned out I just hadn't seen the other side of them. They are just the same.
Thanks I am sorry your friends turned out to be such scumbags. I am not sure if I said this to you but I said Russian feminists are going to end up bloke ours sooner or later. I sound like an alarmist but it's true. Frankly is a get back in the kitchen joke a crime? I am stunned to hear a persons mom got involved. As for our evolution well I am in favor of eugenics just to help ease medical needs. I honestly left feminist friends and that behind when I started to be called out for the the dumbest things ever. I have one feminist friend I like
