Any challenge to feminism is seen as a challenge to womanhood and becomes a national issue. The entire battery of media channels, paid or otherwise, pounce like hungry wolves on to a single person who dares to challenge the bigotry and hypocrisy of feminism be it Farooq Abdullah or Mulayam Singh Yadav. Feminists not only distort the statements made, present half-truth or pure lies but also showcase open hooliganism challenging the very diktat of free speech.
With extreme non-acceptance and deep-rooted male hatred (misandry), almost all feminist choices work conscientiously against men and their choices under the cute veil of working for women empowerment. Feminism falsely poses itself as a byproduct of patriarchal oppression. In reality, feminism sleeps with patriarchy at night and feigns victimhood at the nigh of dawn.
Patriarchy patronizes feminism and while feminism is happy to reap the dividends of patriarchy, it’s not ready to accept the flip side of patriarchy. This convenience of choice portrayed by feminists disrupts the social structure as it infringes into the rights of men and takes away their rightful right to fight for their rights. Conscious efforts by feminism, has surely ensured that the phrase “men’s rights” attains humorous undertones and is trivialized by the society.
However, this is just one side of the coin. This is just the true face of feminism. The story would remain incomplete without having had a look at the spine of feminism. In reality, if feminism was wrought with flaws as showcased above, what made it thrive to the extent of having “Feminist Jurisprudence” as a separate subject in the study of law?
The spine of feminism is the underlying thought that – “a woman best understands a woman’s pain”. I must admit that this sugar coated statement sounds solid enough to be insurmountable, invulnerable, and versatile enough to sail feminism through the social obstacles it meets while spreading its stems and leaves across. But, in the first place, is the statement in itself truly correct?
I have seen daughters more wary of their mothers and mothers more critical of their daughters. I have seen sisters more jealous of each other and female cousins playing more games in the lives of their female counterparts in the constant struggle for power which engulfs the basic human instinct.
I have seen women more uncomfortable of women around than men being around them and an equal feigning of this feeling. In fact, it is so true that women do understand each other very well and that’s why hate each other that it’s just not possible for a woman to understand another woman’s pain.
In reality, by claiming that women understand another woman’s pain, the feminists play the smart game of shifting the burden of blame onto men for the choices that women make in order to satiate their power hunger.
I have seen mothers ruining their son’s life just so that their control over the family does not go away. I have seen mothers controlling the lives of their daughters so that they can use the daughters to blame other men in their lives and in this process, not take any responsibility for their actions and blame it all on men.
While one can possibly argue that all these are my interpretations and not necessary absolute truths, suffice it to mention here that the world, as it occurs to us, is a function of our interpretations. Absolute truth is a myth because the absolute truth is that every single individual is responsible for their entire life and there is no scope for any blame game. However, given the number of blame games we come across in our daily lives, it remains an unanswered question – are we even aware of the absolute truth?
So, while feminist interpretations are forming one after another anti-male law and other anti-male socio-legal policies, I prefer to offer my interpretation about feminism and its over-indulgence in the society.
And the questions still remains open before the society at large - Should Governments allow so much power to feminism?
