Men so narcissistic they think the fact that feminist critique makes them feel bad means making them feel bad's the point of feminism

Perhaps men arguing on the Internet follow a developmental path that echoes an individual man growing a social conscience, which in a very simplified form goes something like this:

  1. Sexism is a fake idea invented by feminists
  2. Sexism happens, but the effect of “reverse sexism” on men is as bad or worse
  3. Sexism happens, but the important part is that I personally am not sexist
  4. Sexism happens, and I benefit from that whether or not I personally am sexist
  5. Sexism happens, I benefit from it, I am unavoidably sexist sometimes because I was socialized that way, and if I want to be anti-sexist I have to be actively working against that socialization

Used inclusively, the word "white" has no connotations whatsoever of race. ... There is great beauty to a phrase such as "All whites are created equal."

I’m a guy, and I need feminism. Everything that men can’t do or are socially punished for arises from misogyny. Whether I am expressing my emotions, playing with children, baking, having sex wherein I am penetrated in any way, wearing the wrong color, talking the wrong way, moving the wrong way, being sexually harassed/assaulted, or paying too little attention to looking like I’m not paying attention to how I look – when society punishes me or derides me or marginalizes me for these things, it is happening because they are things women, not men, are expected to do, and our society at large fucking hates women.
queer as in...

As the culture evolves, people who benefitted from the old ways invariably see themselves as victims. Once you grasp the concept of privileged distress, you’ll see it everywhere: the rich feel “punished” by taxes; whites believe they are the real victims of racism; employers’ religious freedom is threatened when they can’t deny contraception to their employees — it goes on and on. ...

Supremacy itself isn’t hate. You may even have affection for the person you feel superior to. ... But supremacy turns to hate when the feeling of innate superiority is openly challenged. ....

[People experiencing privileged distress] deserve compassion, but [the actually oppressed] deserve justice. ... [we should] acknowledge their distress while continuing to point out the difference in scale. ... The ones who still want to be good people need to be offered hope that such an outcome is possible in this new world.

Target: Women... Yogurt Edition!
Current.tv's InfoMania is media criticism wrapped in that over-the-top, loud, teenage MTV style – almost to the degree of self parody at times, but still quite smart. This particular segment is hilarious. bestposts
