something misogynists and mainstream feminists have in common is the devaluing of nurturers & mothers. not everybody wants to claw their way up the ladder and become ceo of some horrible company and spend day after day after day doing the whole ‘powerbitch’ thing and emulating the worst of capitalist masculinity? nurturing personalities are always deemed feminine and therefore weak and subordinate and it’s so shitty how we teach everyone to be selfish and hard by pushing this concept of ‘success’ and ‘liberation’. the downfall of any society is the introduction of individualism and mainstream feminism is just encouraging it further, as if we’re not already fucked up enough. all of this energy is spent on telling women that to be empowered they have to act like the worst men (you don’t become highly successful in a capitalist society w/o having sociopathic traits) and none is spent on teaching people that it’s ok to be soft and caring. niceness is labelled weakness because there’s no room for empathy when there are profits to be made.
when people give me compliments I feel like a vending machine trying to accept a wrinkly dollar and it’s just really frustrating for everyone involved
