Revolt of Pussy-Hat Men: Fed up with banshee feminism, even liberal men have had enough

“The smallest worm will turn, being trodden on” -William Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 3

The worm turns.

Browbeaten by feminists and blamed for every ill under the sun, liberal men have had enough.

In an essay for Literary Hub, titled “MIA: The Liberal Men We Love,” February 27, 2019, Ohio Wesleyan University assistant professor of English Amy Butcher blames — you guessed it — “fascist” Donald Trump for relationships between “liberal” women and “liberal” men being “torn apart”. The women, of course, are not at fault — not in the least.

More ominously, Butcher sees in the revolt of liberal men, the menace of fascism.

In other words, if men — liberal or not — don’t COMPLETELY agree with, support, and cheer whatever women do and say, they are Trump-infected fascists.

The essay begins with Butcher’s supercilious characterization of conservative men as “men who wear lobster-printed pants, the men from Connecticut, the Young Republicans of America with their gelled and parted hair”. Below are excerpts from the article:

To a certain extent, we expected it from the men who wear lobster-printed pants, the men from Connecticut, the Young Republicans of America with their gelled and parted hair, their summers in Nantucket, their LL Bean slippers worn on the porches of fraternities, 2pm on a Monday. But when my friend pulls me aside in a hotel bar and tells me it’s happening to her husband—a man who donates annually to NPR and voted twice for Barack Obama, who has a degree in Art History and works for a non-profit—neither one of us knows what to say.

We speak of it like an infection: has it spread to your household yet? ….

Everywhere across America, liberal unions once so strong in love—relationships founded on mutual respect and trust and commitment and loyalty—have found themselves upended, or at the very least foundationally rocked, by the political escalation as it relates, perhaps most specifically, to womanhood and gender. Twenties or thirties or forties, children or no children, married or engaged or committed via long-term relationships: I have met more women than I can count in these past three weeks alone who have confided, in low voices—or once shouting, disbelieving, desperate, we have three children, one woman cried to me—of the disruption in their own home.

Of men—previously, pleasantly, progressive—rising up with unprecedented hostility, anger, abandon, and resentment…. Who is it that said that when fascism eventually comes to America, it will be draped in the flag and holding the cross? I think it is worth adding that it will wear the face you love.

My husband worries about our daughter, she told me recently. That I’m only teaching her she’s a victim.

One day, while she was picking their children up from daycare, he burned a handful of her possessions: her Nasty Women shirt, her Hillary Clinton pins.

My husband filed for divorce, another confided a few days later. He said he loved me and shared in some of my frustrations, but “could no longer tolerate,” he said, the level at which I felt them.

Hours later, another wrote…My fiancé called off the engagement…. He loves me—he’s sure, and I believe him—but he’s “overwhelmed” with everything and “doesn’t know how to comfort me” and “doesn’t love who I’ve become.” …

It would be easy, I suppose, to dismiss this phenomenon as the manifestation of what has long been present, if buried under the surface. A friend theorizes that these men, on some level, actually hate women, have always hated women, and she is not persuaded when I cite their mothers, whose relationship they value, whose strength they find a pillar. There’s a difference between loving a mother, she tells me, and seeing a woman as your equal.

But I knew these men—I loved one myself—and they are far from misogynistic monsters. They are far from Trump supporters. These men, on the contrary, comprise a particular slice of American males: they are men who did not vote for nor support Donald Trump, but are reticent to admit his behavior, rhetoric, and policies are as outrageous and offensive—downright threatening, maddening—as their female partners perceive them to be. These are, make no mistake, men who wholly sought us for our strength, our independence and education. The jobs we held or coveted. The degrees degreed in our name. Our passions and pursuits and our can-do, want-it-all attitudes. They work as medical researchers or in the arts, in teaching or social work. They queue up the Saturday Night Live skits that humiliate Trump, to consume with our coffee on Sunday mornings, but find it unpalatable and unpleasant that our resentment and our fears linger long into the workweek.

Perhaps it was sexy, initially: how they saw in us an equal. But how quickly we lose our status when we as women are angry or upset, frustrated beyond belief, when we add our voice to the chorus of #metoos or feel daily symptoms borne of helplessness….

I’m noticing, admits another, that a lot of liberal men especially are finding it difficult to deal with the current feminist movements.

I’m frustrated and embarrassed, my boyfriend of three years said to me, with how worked up you are. He didn’t find palatable my rage, the anger I felt for Trump, for the men and women who voted for him, was in fact embarrassed that I led 90 students from my small Ohio university through the streets of Washington with half a million Americans. We’d ridden through the night on a Greyhound—some of my best and brightest undergraduates—and when I returned, delirious for sleep but feeling righted, in some small way satiated, he stood there in the hall and told me he was overwhelmed.

All of you women with your labia hats, he said. All of you with your clitoris signs.

It’s all Trump’s fault!

What was the flapping of a wing in Washington became a tornado in our own homes: the exact formation and path dependent wholly on one man, miles east, in orange, his appendages beating furiously, his colors outlandish and embarrassing….

Perhaps no man is capable of understanding, truly, what is always on the line when you are a woman, and how Trump and his toxic rhetoric threatens so very much of it. Perhaps no man can recognize the sinister in Trump’s threats….

In my backyard, in my America…[is] a mindset so wholly shaped by gendered bias that…a man, even a progressive one, automatically and subconsciously conflates feminists or a rise in feminist outrage to a threat to the collective male contingency/population.

About the video: On Oct. 6, 2019, after the Senate confirmed the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a young woman taunted and assaulted an elderly man holding two signs in peaceful support of Kavanaugh.

I still doubt many of these cucks will #WalkAway completely.

They did from their relationships; the gist I get, is they are still very much liberal, but just don’t want to be lumped in with real, conservative, Christian men because they don’t want to be seen as the problem. These soy boy, beta-males would never bring themselves to admit that conservatives are correct.

If their women toned it down, these “men” will stay with them; or perhaps, go through a trial separation, and agree to get back together after a specified period of time to see if anything’s changed in their partner.

Life is hard enough when there are supposedly two of you fighting the world to establish a home that is a sanctuary from the ills of the world. How could any man feel anything but that he has been cheated when his mate is wallowing in pity and forever playing the victim. How many men really want “their woman” going to rallies and holding signs referring to the “clitoris.” I mean R-E-A-L-L-Y. For women to think or believe that men want a constant diet of this kind of slop is just beyond the pale. Better that the men leave them,… Read more »

I’ve experienced this to a degree at home. The level of anger is completely irrational. For that reason it is frightening. There is no talking to a woman that has this going on. Somehow they have plumbed a deep resentment and directed it (projected?) both to Trump and to men in general. These women are getting a “rush” from their anger like a junkie does her drug. I have never seen anything like it. I can intellectualize it and see the component parts. In the end, it doesn’t matter. It isn’t “OK ” to be like that. It isn’t “OK”… Read more »

Meanwhile the men will go to the Phillippines and find a wonderful, real, woman who will be their true partner in life. Happened to me 16 years ago.

I am disgusted by these harpies claiming to represent all women. They do not. They are an embarrassment to their sex and it’s long past time for sane people to disavow their delusional ranting.

Lophatt, don’t forget also what they are getting in their FB Twitter feeds – it’s all reinforcement feedback. I always keep thinking of that women decribed in Orwells 1984 – during the 2 Minutes Hate. Perfectly described.

Liberals have turned women into competitors.

It’s been said before and I’ll repeat it: Feminism turns women into lesbians who practice witchcraft and abort their children. The Trump and man derangement seems to be a cottage industry to some, but it is the unchaining of demons on a mass scale. We are living in yet another period of history where almost the entire world is going insane, or at least having chronic psychotic breaks with reality. I don’t know what, if anything, can stop it. Not to be a downer here, but I used to lament I could not find a good woman and get married.… Read more »

Amy’s hysterical rant makes no sense. She thinks liberal men or any men at all desire her and her friends because of the affirmative action creds she lists, which incredibly are then used to justify equal outcomes where equal means being put on a pedestal. Men tolerate that crap with a wink a smile, largely because there are as yet no survival pressures in a society still able to endlessly pamper its little princesses like Amy and her friends, who are literally the most pampered humans who’ve ever walked this Earth. How about even fruitcakes walking all over women in… Read more »

What the women tend to forget, or not understand, is that life is always in flux. The current state is artificial and will not last. Eventually, nature will reassert itself, like water behind a dam will eventually overwhelm the artificial structure. When this happens, the patriarchal order will reassert itself. They may hate it, but the world they inhabit has been allowed by men (stupid men at that). It is men who build nations and empires. It will always be so. I challenge any women who disagree to gather together and go forth into the world and build away. See… Read more »

” Perhaps no man can recognize the sinister in Trump’s threats….” This woman like all the others infected with TDS see phantoms everywhere. What in hell does that statement above mean? Trumps threats? To whom and what has he threatened other than N. Korea if they don’t get their act together? As far as liberal men waking up…yes it might indeed happen because after all, a man ( esp. A White one ) would have to be utterly blind these days not to notice the propaganda we are all bombarded with on a daily basis; a type of which is… Read more »

As a professional woman of 30 plus years I do not understand these women, they are absolutely insane. When I was younger I had no desire to be drafted or to fight in war, I would have been happy to serve but not there. One of my biggest regrets was working incredible hours when my children were young , my kids are fine but childhood is short. My college educated son refuses to date any college educated women, he says they are just evil, hateful people, I told him I understand completely.

Oh brother these women need a 12 step program. I have never seen so much gibberish made into an excuse in my life. Truth be told – if you see yourself as a victim-you will never be happy. These women all think they are victims of men-ergo bc POTUS is a man then its his fault. God save us, feminism was a plan by the commies to get women out of the house and disrupt traditional family structure. Look how well its worked, we have all these stupid ‘entitled-woke’ women in America. I am all for women doing what they… Read more »

I have a whole different take on this issue. Therefore I will agree to disagree and let it go at that. I started to explain my position on this but time and space does not allow that explanation. I will leave that for another time and place.

A bit cynical perhaps, but I think the bottom line may involve that fact that men in general will do or say anything to get with a woman. But after a bit, the sex gets old and other things become more important. If those other things aren’t there, then the guy won’t stick around. Lots of guys are “liberal” because their love interest is. The “respect” for her PhD and Independence is just flattery. And it does not take too long for a girl who is crazy-hot to just become crazy. People need to look for genuine virtue in their… Read more »
