This is far from the only argument I've seen from feminists about anti-feminists. I have heard, and repeatedly, that anti-feminists are only doing a thing for the approval of men or because they are being told to by men. This kind of mentality is being dangerously promoted by feminists when it makes no sense. Other than being overtly offensive and using battered women as poster children to promote their horrible agenda, it just isn't true. There are many anti-feminist women who aren't even heterosexual (myself included). To claim that women who are against feminism are all either battered victims of domestic violence, or are only doing it to try to catch themselves a man, is ludicrous.
Feminists aren't exactly known for being logical creatures, but their smear campaign against women who do not agree with them has gone far enough. They've stopped using any actual logic or sources and have gone onto straight up libel and slander in order to disprove women who speak out against them.
I am no stranger to getting tweets like this one, or tweets that attack my looks or insult me because I'm an anti-feminist.
I suppose the saddest part is, this seems to be an across the board argument. Some idea that women cannot possibly think for themselves if they are not feminists. The idea that women who do oppose feminism have only been brainwashed into submission (or beaten) because they are so desperate for male approval. The problem with this logic is, that even if you are feminist, you still believe that women are brainwashed. For instance, some feminists believe that all sex is rape. Yes, this is true. Even consensual sex is rape because society has conditioned women into wanting sex, they aren't actually consenting to it. Some feminists feel that lesbians who use sex toys that penetrate are also brainwashed. They believe that women have been trained to like phallic objects, that they only get pleasure from such things because society has conditioned them into thinking this way.
The bottom line is, if you are a feminist or you are not a feminist, well congratulations. You've been brainwashed in some for or another. Feminists argue that they aim to make women stronger and give women equal rights, while at the same time claiming everything is the fault of the patriarchy. They want people to believe that women can think for themselves but any time anything happens to the contrary it was the fault of the patriarchy and some kind of conditioning. A patriarchy that they made up and doesn't exist in the first place. Arguments such as these only prove exactly how pointless and backwards the movement has gotten. They aren't even using logic any more, they are just being hateful. It pains me to realize that not only are there countless women out there saying things like this, but they also believe it to be true.
