Recently, a topic came up in SYG - Did you ever support feminism?
I have never supported feminism. Its true that a lot of people support feminism because they naively believe the dictionary definition - that it is about equality and equal rights.
I never bought that. Ever since I could recite my A B C's, I could tell that girls were favored, and boys weren't. I was repeatedly abused by a teacher for three years who was divorced and would only hit boys, but of course you couldn't tell that she was motivated by some other urge because nobody ever hit the girls.
When I was in school, boys were still getting the top scores, but it was easy to see how school was changing - we barely had any male teachers from K-12. The male teachers were mostly of the hard sciences or mathematics.
All of this was in a 3rd world country, not the US. Feminism has still not permeated it to the extent that it has in the first world, but the rot is spreading. When I was in Grade 8, I saw an article about how boys were damaged due to growing favoritism towards girls, and it was then, as I tried to show the article to the class, that I earned my first beating for being an MRA. Yep, chivalry is still alive, as is bullying.
When I landed in the US, I was horrified by what I saw. Women had all sorts of privileges and rights, they were horribly stuck up, being a man and talking or touching any man was considered gay, women had so much authority and power in the universities, there was a Women's Center but no Men's Center, and the TV, oh god the TV was a box spewing misandric crap 24/7 (didn't know the word but I sure got the message). It was too much, so I turned to the Internet and got exposed to the MRA message, bit by bit.
