3rd wave feminism not progressive
Is it normal I feel like the type of feminism we see nowadays is really no different than the systems it claims to be against.
The claims made are so emotional and over the top, and the view of men is so automaticly powerful in their theories of patriarchy.
Is this not a classic example of women bitching irrationally and men not taking it seriously. Then the woman calms down and that's the end of it.
I fail to see how there is any difference here. I don't think most feminists want society to change, they just want to complain and want to be listened to but simultaneously don't actually want their actions to have consequence.
They make sure everyone knows patriarchy is so powerful that at the end of the day their actions are more or less futile, which begs the question, why even participate in activism if not to blow off steam like I just illustrated.
It is analogous to someone sexually submissive begging to not be spanked but of course loving that they are not in control.
If you want to test my theory, try to actually reason with a feminist, and everything falls apart. They just want to yell at you and for their words to ultimately mean nothing.
