They live like political shut-ins, where an ideology is revered with cult-like status, and any deviation from total submission results in excommunication. Don’t think porn and prostitution are empowering? SWERF. Don’t think “trans women are women”? TERF. Don’t think gender is a fluid spectrum, that is also innate but also a social construct? Bigot. The men are happy to go along with it because it results in Feminist Cookies, and the women are sold the lie that it makes them empowered and autonomous, despite it not affecting the social power dynamic in any perceivable way.
We are dealing with a group phenomena of people who are so disconnected from their bodies and from the reality of power that they justify violence and wrap it up in name calling. Their growth as humans is seriously compromised by their ideological attachments. And yeah, not holding my breath for any men in my life to give two shits because the pathology of denial has been deeply rooted in the male psyche. Thanks for your work in the world and not cowering from clarity.
