‘The fact that we’re considering making misandry a hate crime should concern everyone who believes in equality’

/>
I find this highly, highly concerning. It’s basically saying, only white on black racism should be condemned or is bad, black on white is fine. It’s still f**king racism, doesn’t matter which has been more prevalent, or hierarchical systems. It’s like saying it’s okay for a 10 year old to beat a grown man up with his hands tied behind his back cos she’s physically weaker. The writer basically argues making misandry a hate crime will allow men to recast genuine attempts at progress as hate . The double standards here are imo appaling, but to act like it’s a concern. Not really surprising, though.

Sexism is sexism, hate is hate. Doesn’t matter who is doing it. It’s about the principle not the power structure.
