The YesAllWomen hashtag on Twitter is rife with hate, bigotry and lies, not the least of which is that Elliot Rodger's screed and violence targeted only women. Most of his murder victims were men, and his "manifesto" vented as much hatred at other men as at women. Moreover, while the feminist hatemongers described him as a "white man," if he was white, then so is President Obama, as, like Obama, Rodger was only half-white. The term "mansplaining" is intended a sexist term intended to have a chilling affect on anybody who disagrees with the feminists' war on men. Given the extreme frequency with which feminists arrogantly instruct all of us on what motivates men, and how men should behave, the term "mansplaining" is clearly a projection as feminists are far more guilty than anybody else such behavior. Just as the Nazis portrayed Jews as predators to justify mass murder, feminists are vigorously portraying men (all men) as predators for what may, ultimately, lead to murderous pogroms targeting men. I believe in equal political, social, educational and economic freedom and liberty for women--and equality in the eyes of the law--but I do not believe in feminism, nor do I believe that these are the things for which feminism stands. I am an enrolled member of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe and I experienced my share of racism as a child, so I know bigotry, and whatever legitimacy the feminist movement in America may once have had, it has long since lost.
