and what’s dangerous about it is men don’t KNOW that they hate women. it’s so deeply ingrained that they don’t see anything wrong with it. idk if you saw the thing i reblogged a little while ago but it’s a p good example of it so i’ll summarize
they did this study where they asked women what they would do if they woke up in the morning and had turned into “men” (i.e., in the language of the study, cis men). a lot of the women expressed mild disappointment but most listed things like “i would become a baseball player, i would become a politician,” etc., after a little while thinking about it.
when they asked men what they would do if they woke up in the morning to find that they had transformed into women, one of the most common answers was “i would kill myself.”
think about that for a second.
if you asked any of the men who participated in that study “do you hate women?” i seriously doubt a single one of them would answer yes.
but if you have such an aversion to the concept of womanhood or femininity that you would literally rather DIE than live as we do, what would you call that other than hatred?
and what’s funny is that what most dudes will hold up as proof that they don’t hate us is the fact that they want to fuck us when it is there that their hatred of us is often the most apparent
men hate women and it’s a million times more dangerous and disturbing bc their hatred has been normalized to the point where they can’t even see it.
rebloggable by request, and here’s the source for the study i mentioned
