The Hysterical Feminist
I am being very careful while I am writing this article. Nobody has to agree with me but this is how I think. Please do keep in mind that women played the most important role in my life in different roles.
My mother was the strongest PERSON I’ve ever seen in my life. My wife always stood by me thick and thin and always believed in me. And now my daughter, she is my strength and my reason for everything.
So, trust me I have nothing against women. Actually, I think that women are more realistic, strong, and practical than men
However, moving back to my article, the majority of people think feminism is a good thing. It’s made great social strides in the past few decades, and many more people are aware of it now than ever before.
However, thanks to a few hysterical and negative voices, many people have a very warped view of what feminism actually stands for.
This article will focus on the negative and hysterical side of feminism that is so often talked about today. The positive side of feminism isn’t going anywhere – but these other types might give you a bad taste for it.
Here are some things you should know about the negative and hysterical type of feminist…
It’s been a year of extremes for the feminist movement. We’ve seen a spike in women coming forward with stories of sexual misconduct, which has led to an avalanche of accusations against powerful men, and some high-profile men being forced to step down from their jobs.
In the same time period, we have also seen women publicly excoriate other women for not fitting the stereotype of what it means to be female.
The world is a scary place for women, especially if you are an angry, resentful feminist with a victim complex. Everything is sexist, everything is racist and everything is homophobic.
Read an article by a modern third-wave feminist and you’ll be struck by the negative and hysterical tone of these virtual strangers. Every man, woman, and child in the world has been labeled either as a misogynistic oppressor or an oppressed victim.
These labels may not be flattering but they are also quite accurate when one views them from the isolated perspective of an angry, resentful feminist with a victim complex.
These articles reveal so much about those who write them: they’re insecure, pessimistic, paranoid, and even masochistic. So, let’s take a look at why some feminists see the world as such a terrifying place for females…
The hysterical feminist
If a feminist exhibits multiple symptoms of hysteria, it is likely she has been infected by the idea of ‘the patriarchy.’
The idea that the entire male sex is responsible for the alleged oppression of women dates back to the early 20th century when it was used as a political theory to explain why women were not as free or as wealthy as men.
The word “patriarchy” itself was not used in these early theories, and there is still no real definition of the word today. The word is often used as a catch-all phrase to describe any form of male oppression. In fact, the word has been so overused and misused that it has become almost meaningless.
Some reasons why women are so negative about men.
Women have been raised in a world where boys are often told they can do better, while girls are told they can do anything. Boys are given toys that build spatial skills and are encouraged to be more independent, while girls are given dolls and encouraged to be more dependent on others.
Boys are told to go out and conquer the world, while girls are told to be their best selves. Boys are given the message that they have to be tough and independent, while girls are given the message that they have to be soft and compassionate.
Boys are often corralled in orderly and structured environments while girls are often allowed to be a bit more messy and unstructured. Boys are treated as if they are wild animals who must be tamed, while girls are treated as if they are fragile flowers that must be protected.
How to deal with a negative and hysterical feminist?
Let her unload. A negative feminist will often want to talk about all the men who have hurt her, and you are her captive audience. You can politely listen to her, and then calmly respond.
Ask her questions. Questions can help you understand the other person better. You might say, “I’m curious, why do you say that?” or “What led you to this conclusion?”
Put yourself in her shoes. You might say, “I can understand why you feel this way, but I’ve had a different experience.” You can tell her that you’ve had positive and respectful relationships with both men and women.
You might also tell her that you’ve had negative experiences with both men and women. Let her know that her negative comments are putting you off. You might say, “I don’t like to hear negative comments about any group of people.”
Let her know you want to talk about more positive things. You can say, “I’d rather talk about something more positive.” Let her know that you only have a limited amount of time to talk. You might say, “I only have a few minutes to talk. What else do you want to discuss?”
“Patriarchy”, the word is often used as a catch-all phrase to describe any form of male oppression.
It’s a system in which men hold more power than women. In many societies, men are considered to be the “stronger sex” and therefore have greater authority over women.
The word “patriarchy” comes from the words “father” and “rule,” so it refers to a system in which men hold more power than women. In other words, patriarchy is a social structure in which men hold more power than women.
In some cultures, this means that men have greater authority over women and can decide when they marry, have children, and whether they can get a job or go to school. In modern Western culture, the term “patriarchy” has become controversial because it can be seen as implying that all men are bad or that all women are good.
However, patriarchy should not be confused with male dominance—which is the idea that all men are dominant over all women. Instead, patriarchy refers to a social structure in which men hold more power than women.
There are many reasons why patriarchy exists, including unequal access to resources and power. For example, men may receive more opportunities for education and employment than women, who may need to take on more family responsibilities.
Another reason is unequal socialization between boys and girls. Boys are encouraged to be assertive and independent from a young age whereas girls are encouraged to be dependent and submissive. Because of this socialization, many women may feel less confident or even ashamed when they speak up about their needs.
As a result, they may not speak up as much as they should or do not speak up at all. This can cause a lack of balance in the relationship between men and women and contribute to gender inequality.
There are also stereotypes about what it means to be masculine or feminine. For example, many people believe that being masculine means being independent and strong while being feminine means being caring and gentle. The truth is that there is no “right” way to be masculine or feminine, and it’s important to respect each person’s differences.
Although patriarchy has been around for a long time, people are starting to recognize the harmful effects it has on society. People are starting to speak out against patriarchy, which is making a difference in the fight for gender equality.
