Feminism Demands Totalitarianism

If you’re going to post clickbait headlines then so will I. I am, of course, referring to this article:

If men feel entitled to tell women when feminism has gone too far, *it hasn’t’ gone far enough*

Look at any society where one group is beyond criticism of another.  Are any of them healthy, thriving democracies? Is the endgame really a feminist Caliphate?

Your movement is never beyond criticism. Everyone is entitled to criticise! And yes, we will be critical of your criticism! Andrew Lawrence was indeed criticised by the right. He himself was critical. You are critical of the right wingers who attacked him and I am critical of you. This is not a misrepresentation of free speech. This is what free speech is!

I am indeed outraged. I expressed my outrage at your outrage. You have options. You can address my outrage; take it to heart; change. Be a better, more considerate person. Or if you don’t want to, you can tell me to get stuffed. You have that right! You can even be outraged yourself.

Nobody has the right to tell you what you can and can’t say. That right does not extend to put you above criticism for what you choose to say.
