The Feminist Male

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 1:04 pm Sun 5th August 2018

They do exist, right?

Do they or is it just a social hangup men have where they are inclined to defend any female under attack?

I saw this comment on Menz the other day;

Nice to see a firmly grounded man deeply in touch with his inner feminist side.

Does this suggest that we are all feminist but in the rugged last frontier of New Zealand we lost our way?

Are we talking about males in recovery finding their true Feminist identity?

[Just Curious, of course, I don’t want to assume what was meant]

Is the Feminist male, broadly speaking, nothing more than a man who sits down because it’s more profitable to do so than engage in a debate on behalf of his fellow man?

[If I don’t have that problem, it’s not my problem]

Tracey Watkins Martin let rip with a well known Feminist mantra during the election campaign, “Women must stick together.” in defense of a political opponent.

Does every woman buy that line. No, of course not, and many, happy in their own lives, have no interest in the debate unless perhaps one of their son’s suffers an unfortunate encounter with the Feminist system.

Is it only men who have had a detrimental experience with the system that are more vocal about identifying Feminism in action or is it those affected to a tipping point that they can’t bounce back from – the she devil and the hunted dog, that’s an old movie now but it’s a very real situation for some people.

[When I saw that movie, I didn’t even realise she was sitting next to me]

You can understand some individuals personal objection to this all encompassing Feminism – any way a woman wins is fine as long as she wins and there have been extreme cases of this nature endorsed and supported by the NZ Family Court – but don’t expect compensation any time soon. At best you might get an apology a century from now.

Of recent, we’ve seen a ‘little bit’ of rebellion amongst the girls. The reaction to the #metoo movement appears to have kick started this and even big names like Hiliary Clinton wanted a piece of that limelight.

But then I see a line from a young woman today;

“Simply put, I’m not a Feminist because I care about women’s issues.”

Perhaps we saw a glimpse of this in a recent post, A Woman’s View

But wait, is there more? Does this mean you care about men’s issues too or you have some reason to dislike what you see as Feminism.

So, if it is getting somewhat confusing as to what Feminism is now, in the world of women, then possibly there might be confusion as to what a Feminist male is now.

Help me out here, what’s happening in your world, and how are you seeing this?


  1. That should be Tracey Martin NZ First?

  7. thanks Mr Under for explaining the use of quotes. 🙂

    It seems your problem is not with men dotting dresses to support women refuges.

    It appears you are supportive of their actions and are actually rather mifted they did not chose you instead of fireman PAUlA.

    Are you not as attractive?

    IT seems your issue is that you dislike sane people who can see the irony of such unwitting support to the castration of men and thus do not apparently support your view of the polemic.

    It could have been for Fireman Paul just a “why not?” Moment.
    “FLicking A – they all trying to look under my dress!”
    “Shit I am wearing a dress and it aint’t too bad – I actually like it – no more sweaty balls”

    So for you a feminist male is someone whom choses to laugh at such presentation as silly using the same feminist rethoric you seem to be carrying daily as a mental set of blue balls and a never ending source of personal frustration in what seems to be a deeply seated vendetta against women and also any man with a sense of humor.

    This is usually a sign of a wounded male. Lost of sense of humor.

    I am however rather impressed at the fact that you will post a separate thread liberally making feminist male inferences out of a vaccuum instead of addressing your concerns or issues in the thread referenced and which you initiated.

    If this is not a feminist male tactic on calling all sisters to a Man-witch-hunt-bashing – Then I do not know what this thread is intended to serve…

    Except maybe to break your rules whilst creating the same set and defending it with what might call logic

    You should not infer anything.

    So I will laugh with you… And enjoy your quotes for what they are not.

  8. “If I dont have that problem, it is not my problem”…. I think it is a world wide thing that money has driven people to care less about one another in general.

    Women have stood together on issues that effect them, women are more inclined to defend themselves and protect themselves….It is hard for Man to do things the same way as Woman for they are Men…Men do not like to complain about themselves, it is more in their style to either get over it or deal with it some other way.

    I do not think Man should have to change their very nature in order to fit in with society.

    I think quite a few younger Men would indeed consider themselves feministic for agreeing on certain issues, however I think they are misguided in this consideration and should not have to put such a label on it, some of these human rights issues are just a natural progress and should not be given too much popularity as to call it a Movement.

    Sensationalism is becoming a dangerous mob like culture as we have very recently seen with the Free speech whoopsies.

  9. I think you are right mama.

    Affirmative actions have always been used by the protected to abuse the strong.

    It is only when matters reach a catastrophic outcome that people begin to realize that the law in itself is discriminatory.

    Every time one empowers a minority using laws, these same laws are used to enslave the majority.

    However in this case, men are in the minority.

    As per this site – flow and on flow. You can see that most men are on their own.

    Women on the other hand do better at lobbying and making sure their rights are upheld over those of men.

    Going back to when they did no have the right to vote to now – we could say we have gone full circle.

    WE could even say they have made astucious/judicious use of their upheld and declared God given right to fully participate in society as equal to men. Whereas men have simply lagged behind.

    I think however men have to change and adapt. That is nature’s law.

    It does not mean giving up them their man hood and wearing dresses like someone we know :-).

    It simply means men have to accept no man is an island and learn to work together with other men to uphold just laws for everyone.

  10. They are all around now.

    They are pathetic. They are a sad lot, here are some attributes:
    Use hand gestures lots
    Talk of their “other half” “better half”
    Talk of “brownie points” and how many they need before playing golf.
    They wear white robins.

    Jessie Mulligan, the Project is one.
    They are a reason to change stations.
