I've met a fuckton of the nice, level-headed ones. Now, I freely admit that I may be wrong, but I don't think the crazy ones are the majority. I think they use sockpuppets and numerous alt accounts and addresses to make themselves look that way. But, and I repeat, this is only my opinion, and I could be wrong.
> They don't believe the stuff they preach, they don't stand for the rights of the marginalized minorities or women. They just use it all as an excuse to harass and demean others. The fact they're so quick to turn not only against each other, but against those they claim to be fighting for (and use the same slurs they demean others for using them) should already be enough of a proof.
Top me, that isn't proof of their numbers, but it IS proof that they're indeed more interested in fighting than winning. This type of people are completely wasting time and effort that could be used doing something productive. I think they are, first and foremost, selfish– the fight they're in is entirely about making them feel some combination of satisfaction, smugness, and self-importance. It's ridiculously stupid.
As said, I could be wrong, but when I see the way so many of them use the same manner of speaking (typing), I can't help but think they're a relatively small group that's using the anonymity of the internet to artificially inflate their apparent numbers. It comes across as akin to the old stories about a handful of people defending a fort, who rig up automated catapults in all the windows so there seems to be a whole army holding off the attackers.
> Feminists ate her alive about it, because she was "promoting objectification of women", "validating male gaze", you name it
Like I said. Fucking ridiculous. Quit screwing around and do something useful for the world. Women, at least in the Western world, are no longer oppressed– certainly not systematically. Nor are minorities. Figure it out, cut the bullshit, realize the actual problems in the world, and use all that energy and zeal on THEM, and things might change for the better.
