We’ve just had the following remarks left by a feminist in response to our piece about Reggie Yates’s relentlessly anti-MRA ‘documentary’, which screened on BBC1 earlier this evening (it originally screened on BBC3 some weeks ago). I really don’t need to make any comments on her remarks – although I’ve put some of the more gormless content in bold, for emphasis – other than to say I do appreciate it when feminists nominate themselves for our awards. The genius writes:
Okay I know this must be highly unusual for you but I am a female commenting on your blog. I mean, get that! I want to point out several things that’s wrong with everything you’re putting.
The BBC aren’t producing anything anti-man. Legally, they have to show equality.
Secondarily, please stop complaining about anything that you could possibly regard as against your gender. I know men haven’t had it easy over history- oppressing women is hard work, I sympathise with you. Feminism has brought around huge changes in people’s lives and is a worthwhile movement.
Just to make it clear, feminism is equality of the sexes. Not the supremety (sic) of women. Equality. We are all human and there is no point in discrimination over what you have between your legs.
Finally, even though feminism has focused more on female rights since the beginning of the movement, it doesn’t mean it isn’t focusing on men too. Women have just has further to go to gain equality. We feminists have been campaigning to end the stigma surrounding male gender roles and to raise awareness about their issues such as mental health and child custody. But the way to get those rights for you isn’t by oppressing women once again. It doesn’t seem too absurd thag (sic) and that we want to be taken seriously with feminine issues.we want to be paid the same as male counterparts
Reggie Yates and the whole programme is there to raise awareness about feminism and what it currently is and how some men can’t handle the fight for equality just because it has “fem” in the title. So basically you all need to get your heads out of your asses and just see the world for how it is and realise women are human too and not just there for you to fuck and to produce babies.
