This is a post I shouldn’t write because it’s feeding the attention whoring of a woman who is going around to various MRA and MGTOW blogs, but it’s an important subject so I’m going to do so anyway.
I got this tweet sent to me earlier this week:
— FeminineMystiqueTWRA (@FeminineMystiqu) December 9, 2012
You may have already seen this FeminineMystiqueTWRA woman elsewhere on other MRA blogs. Her name alone shows that she is a feminist. The “TWRA” stands for “traditional women’s rights advocate” and being about any kind of “women’s rights” is an automatic red flag that she’s a feminist. The “FeminineMystique” part is an obvious homage to Betty Friedan. Her name is represents a merger of tradcon (traditionalist conservative) misandry and leftist feminist misandry. This merger of different forms of misandry is the basis of her ideology.
Take a look at the blog post listed in the tweet, and you will see how she merges tradcon misandry and leftist feminist misandry. She quotes both Germaine Greer and Amanda Marcotte as gospel. She uses the former to “prove” that feminism benefits men and the latter to “prove” that the cause of divorce is selfish men who refuse to take care of women and children because men can supposedly get away with it. (Of course, we know all these statements to be lies.) It’s telling that FeminineMystiqueTWRA uses feminist sources to support her points while claiming to be “anti-feminist”.
FeminineMystiqueTWRA is also inspired by tradcon misandry. She uses the standard tradcon canards of “Women are the real victims of feminism and not men”, “Men are forcing women to go to work against their will”, and “MRAs are feminists” because MRAs want equal rights. (The idea that feminists want equal rights and not female supremacism is another lie of hers.)
What makes FeminineMystiqueTWRA different than any other tradcon woman we have encountered? Most tradcon women wouldn’t quote and agree with liberal feminist women so easily. While tradcon misandry is similar to leftist feminist misandry (since it’s all misandry), tradcon misandrists convince themselves that they are different from the leftist feminist misandrists and wouldn’t use them as inspiration like FeminineMystiqueTWRA does. This makes FeminineMystiqueTWRA a bit unique and why I’m calling her a “Nazbol” misandrist.
I got the term “Nazbol” misandrist, from the Nazbol political party in Russia. The Nazbols were formed a few years ago as a merger of Naziism and Communism. (The name is literally “National Bolshevism”.) While the Nazbol party was banned in Russia, it still exists as a faction in “The Other Russia” political party. Both Naziism and Communism aren’t really that different as they are both forms of totalitarianism, but both sides are willing to fight each other to the death over their minuscule differences. However, since both Naziism and Communism have been thoroughly discredited and marginalized, the only place either side has to go is to merge together which is why we have seen the formation of Nazbols in Russia.
Just as Nazis and Communists are both forms of totalitarianism with minuscule differences, so both tradcon misandrists and leftist feminist misandrists are both forms of misandry with minuscule differences. That means sooner or later, we would see “Nazbol” misandrists that merged misandry from both the tradcon and leftist feminist variants. That is what FeminineMystiqueTWRA has done making her the first “Nazbol” misandrist that I am aware of. While I was expecting this to happen eventually, I am surprised that it happened so soon. I didn’t think that mens rights had progressed enough for us to start seeing “Nazbol” misandrists. I expected that it would be another decade at least before “Nazbol” misandrists appeared. This means that mens rights is moving forward faster than any of us thought because “Nazbol” misandrists would only appear after mens rights is successful enough to force strains of misandry to merge. We have been more successful so far than we thought.
