Well who’d have thunk it. Women who support the equality of men and women like men more than women who think what is good for the goose is not good for the gander or that a man wears the pants and a woman doesn’t. Researchers at the University of Houston found that hostility toward men is directly co-related to lack of feminism.
According to Melinda Kander, one of the researchers:
Our work finds that, indeed, non-feminists believe in traditional gender roles such as men being breadwinners and women being caregivers. At the same time, these non-feminists actually appear to resent the confines of the traditional roles they advocate, which presents a paradox for women and men in traditional heterosexual relationships.
I don’t think it’s much of a paradox. Having a constricted and dependent life would make any sane person resentful and women (in case anyone is in doubt) are eminently sane. Another study has found that hostility toward men goes up the greater the gender inequality in a country. Amazing! I mean really, doesn’t beating people down generally make them happy and grateful?
Anyway the details are here. Perhaps I’ll printed it out, roll it up, and use it to bop on the head the next person who is apologetic for espousing feminist beliefs.
I’m not a feminist but of course I support equal pay for equal work. Bop.
I don’t hate men or anything, but no means no. Bop.
Bop. Bop. Bop. Feels pretty good.
