Watering down feminsim for men

mrasarescaredofwomen:

Trying to make women’s liberation appear non-threatening to men - is like trying to make socialism appear non-threatening to rich powerful capitalists:

  • It lowers the integrity of the movement
  • It absolves those in power from their responsibilities and obligations
  • It waters down the message
  • It hides facts and erodes truths
  • It relinquishes the power of the activists (and gives power instead to the oppressors)
  • It requires no implementation of justice
  • It is utterly pointless anyway, because men, just like rich capitalists, will never willingly relinquish their privilege no matter how ‘nicely’ you put the idea to them…

Watering down feminism so men are ‘comfortable with it’ is a cop out and doomed to FAIL. You might get the odd concession here and there (that is usually reversed in the not to distant future), but essentially nothing will change. Injustice will still prevail and people will continue to suffer.
