A woman finds that her boss holds women to higher standards than men...
This is misogynist, she says, because the boss is unfairly demanding more from women since the patriarchy has given him the power to exploit them. She voices her concerns to HR; the boss is fired and replaced.
Under the new leadership, men are held to higher standards than women. Her new boss is a misogynist though; because since he holds men to higher standards than women, he must believe that women aren't capable of performing as well as men in the workplace. She voices her concerns to HR; the boss is fired and replaced.
Under the new leadership, men and women are held to equal standards. Her new boss though, clearly, is a misogynist; women are oppressed and must be given special privileges to compensate for the injustices they've faced. She voices her concerns to HR; the boss is fired, and replaced with her. Workplace productivity decreases 10,000% and the business goes bankrupt.
Feminists: Jordan Peterson is so stupid, there is no such thing as dominance hierarchies in the human species, alpha males and beta males don't exist.
Also feminists: lol found the incel!
You could genuinely turn that into a comedy sketch.
Yeah well, I do have an interest in comedy but frankly I do not feel safe voicing a lot of my opinion IRL. Our society has a shrinking Overton window and is approaching authoritarianism. I don't need any more of a target on my back than there already is (white male, educated)
A well-known form of mental gymnastics where there's no consistent set of standards, just different types of rationalisations to make every situation fit your preconceptions.
Their goal is to pervert the English language to the extent that rational communication becomes impossible. When that happens, arbitrarily exercising power over others with a facade of moral superiority becomes much easier (if every man is a misogynist, every man is a criminal, and every man should suffer)
