Article: On “Choice” Feminism and Internalized Misogyny

Here’s a question, and honestly, I’m not trolling. Answer, ignore, delete, whatever.

If feminism appears to be the mode civilization takes when men relinquish sole control of society and permit women equal opportunity, and we conclude feminism destroys civilizations, then do we also conclude that women, at the aggregate, aren’t equipped with qualities required to support civilization?

I say this because the feminist arguments are slowly eroding my opinion that women are competent members of society deserving respect, even for any particular individual woman.

I was looking for something else and this is….. something. I don’t even.


Internalized misogyny is the “involuntary internalization by women of the sexist messages that are present in their societies and culture.”

Basically, that means that we hold misogynistic ideas ourselves, even though we are women. It’s involuntary….

For example, think about the ways in which men and women sit differently in Western society. Just take a look around you and observe on a train, in a doctor’s office, or even a restaurant, if you can’t think of any differences.

You’ll probably notice that men tend to sit widely, with their legs open, and women tend to sit with their legs crossed or together.

Why is this? Obviously women aren’t born with the instinct to sit with their legs together, nor are men born with the instinct to sit with their legs apart. It’s socialization.
