How often have you heard feminists give out the false notion that a woman or girl has been mistreated just because she is female? How often have you heard feminists claim that a man or boy has been praised or chosen for leadership positions just because he is male? If you regularly listen to what feminists say, or read what feminists write, chances are you have probably heard that a lot. But how exactly do feminists and other gynocentrics define this treatment? What factors take place for treatment to be considered gender-based? This has already partially explored this in the AVfM article “the inflated definition of misogyny“, but this article will go into further detail.
The basic idea is that feminists define anything negative that happens to a woman or girl as “gender-based” discrimination, and anything greatly positive that happens to a man or boy as a “gender-based” result of the patriarchy.
|Positive Situation||Gender-based privilege||She earned it|
|Negative Situation||He deserved it||Gender-based discrimination|
False claims of gender-based discrimination against women and girls, and gender-based privilege for men and boys, are an important part of feminism’s lifeblood. These claims are what the feminist theories of the patriarchy, female oppression and male privilege stem from. In this article, a few common examples of what feminists consider gender-based treatment will be debunked. Remember, these are just examples.
Perhaps one of the most exaggerated form of so-called “discrimination” is violence. There are many attempts by feminists to stop violence against women, but not violence against men. It should be noted that men are much more likely to suffer physical violence than women. Boys are taught from a young age that they should never hit girls, even in self-defense. The media frequently shows violence against men and boys being portrayed as not only acceptable, but funny, but when a more minor version of this happens to a woman once the feminists have a shitfit.  It could be said that much more violence occurs against men because they are men than violence against women because they are women.
Even though men are far more likely to suffer physical violence, feminists still insist that women receive extra protection from such forms of violence, and continuously blame the minority of physical violence that is inflicted against females on discrimination. This is not because females generally have less physical strength, it is because they are female.
When it comes to violence, the term “gender-based” simply means against a woman or girl even if her gender has nothing to do with why the violence was done.
Work and Hiring
Take a look at how feminists react when a man is chosen for a job over a woman. Feminists will often blame this on discrimination, even if the man is more qualified for the job. Also take a look at how feminists react when a high-rank or even decent-rank job is male dominated. They claim that this is due to discrimination. If someone were to ask: “why are there so few male hairdressers?” how would you answer? Surely most of you would answer by stating that it is because fewer men apply for those jobs. Well the same should be said about women in male-dominated jobs: it is because fewer women apply for those jobs. Feminists don’t get that, though.
If a group or club consists of mostly men or all men, many feminists will blame this on discrimination. It could easily be that fewer women decided to join the group or club, or that fewer met the requirements to join, but feminists will still blame it on discrimination. It is possible for a group or club to openly rule itself as “women only” but when a group or club appears to only allow men in the eyes of feminists, well, that’s a whole different story.
If a female boss or leader, be it at a job, school or even a group or club, is not respected or obeyed, especially if the people she is in charge of are male, feminists will often blame it on discrimination. There are a variety of other reasons this may be happening. It could be that the people she is in charge of don’t like her management style, or are just disobedient in general, but regardless of whether it is her fault or not, there are possible reasons other than gender discrimination.
If a boy in a family is treated better than a girl, many feminists will blame this on discrimination. Actually, in many households, it is actually girls who are given preferential treatment over boys. If a girl is treated worse than a boy, there are plenty of other reasons, good or stupid, that are not based on her gender. It could be that the boy has earned the treatment more (in the family’s opinion) or that the family favors older or younger children. All families work differently, but treating boys better than girls is certainly not the norm.
