Dear feminists who claim to want “equality,”
As a woman who knows the ways of women, I know you know exactly what you’re doing.
Put simply, you the rabid feminists who claim to want equality, are taking men out. Some of your sisters in feminism are less sly than the average, mostly non-feminist lady, and have telegraphed the intentions of your movement in ways more befitting of a chest-beating douchebag you likely cannot stand.
Here's an unpopular opinion: I'm actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.

Sorry. If some innocent men's reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.

Tisk tisk, I expected better. I guess hubris is not just a male shortcoming.
For whatever reasons you have, and I suspect it’s reasons plural, you don’t like men. I’m going to skip the part where I guess what those reasons are, because they ultimately do not matter. Innocent men shouldn’t be condemned for crimes committed by the guilty.
But here we are. Innocent men have their lives ruined by women with grievances. As the saying goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Whenever I hear about such women destroying men, I make the case known. I want it clear bad actors like women who cry “RAPE” are punished for the sin of crying RAPE! Not simply due to false rape claims harming other women who may not be believed for actual rape, but for what false rape claims do to innocent men.
Anecdotal role-playing time: I do not like it when some men make blanket statements like “women are more emotional than men” as they scream at a football team, and maybe throw a brick through a window. Call it a pet peeve. What I don’t like about this particular statement is being tossed in with a group, assigned a trait simply because some men have made it part of their dogma: Courtney is a woman, women are more emotional, ergo Courtney is more emotional.
So if you, a feminist, finds guilt by association or even group averages problematic, isn’t it just as wrong to say “Men rape more than women rape, Brett Kavanaugh is a man, ergo Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist”?
Rhetorical question. Because your endgame isn’t about fairness and equality. Those are just words in your mission statement. What better way to go destroy men as a collective than to simply accuse of sexual misconduct?
Of course you know all men are witnessing what’s happening to Brett Kavanaugh with apprehension and fear. You intended it. You enjoy it.
I know you understand what you’re doing has real world consequences. I know you don’t care about those real world consequences.
But I do care. Not just as someone who wants to defend the actual rights of women (not to be confused with chop shopping their unborn children), who wants women to be happy and make their own choices to reach their own happiness, but as someone who likes men, who wants men to be happy and make their own choices to reach their own happiness. You know, actual equality.
False rape accusations will not punish the wicked, but only harm the good. Men and women. I’m transcending politics here. What’s happening to Brett Kavanaugh has deeper, more cultural repercussions. Real rapists will not be stopped when innocent men are accused of rape for political reasons. To think any false accusation will result in fewer rapes is ludicrous. Sure, men may be more cautious when talking to a woman, out of fear he may be harassing her. Sure, all women have had plenty of dealings with scumbag creeps who may not have been aware of being scumbag creeps. Perhaps all this false rape flying about will curb a few of those pigs from commenting about your ass. Maybe. But does anything stop an ass from being an ass? A question for another time.
What will happen are good men fearing women. It’s already happening. How will good men sort the decent women, of which there are many, from those harpies who’ll cook his rabbit? How are men to know what women are safe to approach for a chat, and what woman will accuse him of misconduct for a bad approach? Or for not retuning her call when he said he would.
What will happen when a woman applies for a job at a male-dominated company? Will the men look at her as an asset, or lump her in with those of you who think condemning a man for rape, guilty or not, is just swell? You know, to take down the patriarchy.
No it’s not fair. If you ladies celebrate men being destroyed over mere accusations, what’s to stop men from padding their lives with caution, and denying entry to women entirely?
Think of it this way. If you enter a building with 30 light switches, and know at least one will electrocute you if switched, do you turn on any lights even though only 1/30 is dangerous? Or do you avoid them altogether?
Of course you don’t care, you don’t like men. So what if you never have to be hit on again. So what if you never have to work with men again. So what if you want to surround yourself with your fellow members of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. So what if you have a child with an anonymous incel and a turkey baster. Men are the enemy to you. Let them die alone, miserable, and unloved.
It won’t matter to you but I’ll give you the reasons anyway. Men and women have always needed each other. I know you hate it, but it’s true. We’re complements. Humanity has never existed without the mostly peaceful cohabitation of each other. Sure, it’s never perfect. Yes, historically men have leveraged their physical strength to lord over women. But so too have they used that physical strength to protect and honor women. Yes some men are mindless brutes. But so too are some women heartless sirens who use their wiles to wreck the lives of men, sometimes for just the sport of it.
If it’s wrong for men to use their physical strength to control a woman, so too is it wrong for women to use a sympathetic media and public opinion to control men.
These false accusations will tear an already thinning bond between men and women. Which I know is your ultimate goal. But tearing us apart will not just destroy the lives and happiness of men. Tearing us from each other will have such deep repercussions I cannot possibly predict them. But I do fear them.
