Reactionary arsehats arguing against sexual harassment policies are accusing pro-feminist men of victimising/victimizing women. How, you might ask?
It appears that the arsehats understand the word ‘victimisation’ not to mean what the word is usually understood to mean i.e. a perpetrator actually harming someone. No, to these arsehats the ‘victimisation of women’ means talking about women’s history of being victims of harmful acts. So the allegation is that pro-feminist men are making women see themselves as victims.
What I said was more along the lines that both genders have their privilages in their own ways. Women seem to be the **victims** here largely because of some overgrown sexually deprieved men trying their best to avail every single oppurtunity to victimize women, and in so doing, trying to project an image of the greatest champions of the feminist movement known to man. Do you disagree with this? Is victimizing women same as empowering them?
Why golly gee whiz! We wimminz would never have thought about talking about how we want harmful and annoying sexist behaviour to stop happening if it wasn’t for male champions telling us that we should, amiright?
Also, see again the standard authoritarian mindset that “victim” is an overarching, permanently debilitating status (and thus a self-identification that ought to be vigorously rejected/overcome) rather than simply an acknowledgement of one’s experience of a particular event in one’s life.
