Do you consider yourself a misandrist?

Nooo, I'd say I'm just more at ease around animals than people, and I'd go as far as to say there are times that I'd PREFER animal companionship over humans. So again, not really.

Nonononono I meant that as a non sequitur question.

Unrelated to your puppies, do you consider yourself a misandrist?

Do you think that you can hold yourself to the political mores of the feminist movement and still not consider yourself a misandrist?

Yeah, I can. Here's why: (Bolding is mine.)

"In his 1997 book The Gender Knot: Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy, sociologist Allan G. Johnson stated that accusations of man-hating have been used to put down feminists and shift attention onto men in a way that reinforces male-centered culture.*Johnson noted that the word misandry did not appear in dictionaries until recently** and that comparisons between misogyny and misandry are misguided because mainstream culture offers no comparable anti-male ideology.

He says in his book that accusations of misandry work to discredit feminism because "people often confuse men as individuals with men as a dominant and privileged category of people."* He wrote that given the "reality of women's oppression, male privilege, and men's enforcement of both, it's hardly surprising that every woman should have moments where she resents or even hates 'men'."*"

Therefore, again, no, I am not.

Oh hey I read that exact same paragraph on Wikipedia, too!

I love the, "well it wasnt in the dictionary lol until PATRIARCHY" argument. It's not like that word hasn't been around since forever. The "comparable anti-male ideology" argument is flimsy at best, who fucking cares? The idea behind the word is a hatred of men.

So you're saying that you are not a misandrist, correct? And your reason is that it is impossible to be one because there is no viable real-world example of misandry in the world?
