Just dropping a quick line here after having read something rather amusing.
According to Yashar Ali, women are more empathetic to men then men are to women.
This is his exact quote:
Here’s the thing, Yashar, I’m a woman who is attempting to develop a true understanding of men’s vulnerabilities and issues. By every definition I am a woman ‘practicing empathy towards men.’
And I’m mocked as a ‘speshul snowflake’ (along with my other sisters-in-empathy arms). Which is ironic in light of this article asserting that women, in general, practice empathy towards men every day.
How can I be special and just an average Jane at the same time? How does one reconcile a blanket generalization that ‘women are more empathetic’ and be part of a movement that shames women who are more empathetic by claiming those women do so to be all ‘unique’ and ‘different’?
If a hegemonic masculinity falls in the forest and no one is around to condemn it, did it really fall? What is the sound of one patriarchy clapping?
Also, shout out to LadyMRAs!
