In her think piece for The Guardian, Jessa Crispin points out the hypocrisy of male feminists and calls them “a joke.”

Jess Crispin, a social activist and the author of Why I Am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto, argues that liberal men don’t understand feminism in her Guardian think piece.

Crispin, an advocate for the abolishment of marriage, has often criticized male feminist and has called them a “joke” for both sides of the political spectrum. She says while male feminist in public may call themselves “allies”, in private these same men are completely different. 

Crispin points to the wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations coming out against liberal men such as Harvey Weinstein, who have publicly “championed” women.

“The only thing that’s surprising is how many of the men who have long abused their power have gotten away with it in part by hiding it behind a sheen of progressive politics and claims of feminism.”

Crispin stresses these men may “perform” the role of ally, but they have not “encountered feminism at all.”

“Sure, they took a class at their liberal arts college, they think it’s terrible what women have to go through with the catcalling and the unfair beauty standards, and they absolutely think it’s unfair some conservative Christian politician can deny a woman access to an abortion. They believe all the right things when it comes to women’s issues, but they still treat women as if they were objects there only for their sexual use.”

Crispin argues feminism should teach men to get rid of this toxic mindset and be a “spiritual awakening” where they confront all the ways they have participated in the oppression of women.

“And until it is, feminism might as well not exist for men. That so few men even seem to realize this work is required does not bode well for the near future of masculinity.”

    “unfair beauty standards” Because the standards women hold men to are completely fair, all of the time. Ha and also ha.

    • Jesse James

      You’ll know their beauty standards for men by the quality of the male strippers they get at their bachelorette parties. LOL

      • David Watts

        None look like Harvey Weinstein, by any chance, do they? 😉

      • Ralph Kern

        My first ex wife went to a male “strip club” way back in the early 70s. What those women did with the male strippers, would get a guy thrown out of any strip club I’ve ever been to.

        • Jesse James

          Yup. Because female strippers know they are gonna get paid regardless. Or else!

          Male strippers better be willing to put out to these “totally angelic goddesses” of peace and virtue. I’m sure their husbands would totally support their wives if they knew what the lips they just kissed on the way in the door had just “cum from.”

    • SteppyJ412

      To be honest, it’s women that go nuts with makeup, hair and expensive shoes. Most men prefer a more natural look.

      • David Watts

        I wasn’t talking about beauty standards, more like standards of behavior.

      “Unfair beauty standards” set by other women and gays.

  • ShikokuPrincess91

    She’s so stupid. Even if she is right these girly guys are creepy. Feminism shouldn’t exist. Being pretty is part of being female the same way being brave is part of being male. I don’t want to be the one have to fight a enemy. Much better having to take care of my appearances.

    • itdarestospeak

      Thanks to feminism and the complicity of the majority of women the direction western society is heading will preclude you having that option.
      Bed. Made. Lie.

  • Robert A’Beuy

    She’s got that smug Shkreli look.

    • Ralph Kern

      She also has that “ugly thinks she’s hot ” look.

  • Charles Borner

    And proof that you can never TRULY be an “ally”.
    And nothing you do will ever REALLY be “enough”.

    In the end, it’s man-hating. Nothing more. Nothing less.

  • iainnahearadh

    Sadly for this one, she simply fails to understand that women are there for men to make babies.

    This is done via the less crazy, better looking women.
    The standard is set by the eligible women, not the men.

    In order to get the best of this deal, after they are older and less sexually attractive, they want a return on their previous investment, it’s called a long term exclusive contract, or marriage.

    Again, this is a thing of women, not men, otherwise the human species would have the breeding habits of Rabbits, the same life span and pretty much, the same lifestyle outcomes.
    Oddly enough, this is pretty much the normal outcome for any species that this Bat Shyte Crazy feminist would compare her utopian dream to.

    Unfortunately, for this knuckle head, there are also women who will share one man with more than one woman, also in a an exclusive relationship.
    However, the proviso is that he must be a wealthy alpha male and a better than average provider.

    Again, it’s the women who make the choices and it’s the women who set the standards, be it beauty or otherwise.
    And once again, it’s the women who want this and the long term exclusive contract, or marriage, that goes with it.

    So, some how, given all of this rather obvious knowledge, I think this Bat Shyte Crazy feminist might be trying to publicly relieve her bladder while facing naked and cursing, into the wind.

    Although I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

    Feminists are boring and boring.. Did I say that already? Their rhetoric is getting so old and tired.

  • OutlawPete_II

    I like how the “near future of masculinity” is dependent on male interpretation and acceptance of feminism. Holy crap. If I made the reverse statement, she’d be all over me for misogyny. Masculinity is what defines us. The way we want to be. Not the way YOU want us to be. Fuck you.

    • Ralph Kern

      They scream “science, science science” and fail to comprehend the method of species survival. Small critter females are selecting their mates based on pretty. Colorful male birds strut and preen.
      As the critters get larger male strength and ability to protect count more than pretty…. except in cats, …. big cats are pretty male’s and good hunting females. ( but the male’s still kick each other’s ass to show off).
      In other words the male and female of the species must find mutual attractions. The reason there are sunken chested beta male’s is because they’ve been told by the third wave feminists, that is what will get them laid.
      Simple equation. Guys will do what gets them sex. College educated male’s are just more malleable, that’s all.

  • SteppyJ412

    Maybe feminists should stop being giant b itches.

  • I_h8_disqus

    I completely agree with her that male feminists are a joke. They are the real reason for the lack of masculinity in the world. Male feminists are weak and no matter how much they wish it, they will never have the respect of the feminists they are with.

  • So it’s not enough to be brainwashed and fucked over into their corner to spew their nonsense and kiss their asses just to keep getting laid. They also have to not be men and they never can be good enough for them.

    Sounds a lot like the toxic vile feminists have been trained to spew has been dialed up from 11 to 12; now the men in their corner and on their side are their enemies as well!

  • PaulMurrayCbr

    SJWs always double down. Enough is never enough. They can’t take ‘Yes’ for an answer.

  • Michael Wendt

    The pot calling the kettle black… they have just as many prejudices. I am 5’5″ so I am not very popular on dating sites where about 80% of the women indicate they want a guy who is 6′ tall or taller. That’s fairly sizist of them, right? A bit superficial, perhaps? Second requirement is high income. Not really gold diggers, just being practical. Good looking, prestigious job (Doctor, Lawyer,… etc.) Many are still stuck in High School mindset even years later, worried what others will think. Not all women are this way and not all men are rotten either. I see this as a pointless exercise on her part, or perhaps just a ploy to sell books and make money?

    • Bootsie

      As a woman I agree with your post. Jess Crispin seems to be loaded up with petty complaints of little real value. Men are judged by unfair standards of ‘beauty’ as well. The only time a fat, balding, creep can get away with sexually harassing hundreds of women is when he has enough power to buy their silence. Any other man would have lost his business/job, and freedom long ago. These feminist women are always complaining about what others don’t do for them instead of getting up off their duffs and doing for themselves.

    • phaidros52

      In the sense of equality my dating profile would look like: Min. 6 foot, max. 70 Kg, natural blond (everywhere), tight c*nt, loves to move heavily in bed, strong sex drive (like 4x a week or more), open to talk about sex, studies or profession that makes sense and can generate substantial income, mobile with car, good in gourmet cooking, able to hold a meaningful discussion for more than 15 mins., no fashion fuzzy.

  • Nikolas Shea

    If your brand of feminism extends beyond equality, you might be (are definitely) a sjw.

  • Jim Austin

    It seems that men’s heterosexuality per se is a bar to them being a feminist.

  • Quiet Desperation

    These dumb cûnts are going to destroy Western civilization. Then they can whisper “Im so empowered” under their burkas. Oh,nwait, I’ll get four wives. Kerp up the good work, ladies!

    The work that needs to be done is a revolution to iverthrown the ProgLeft globalists.

    • Paul

      Four wives sounds like punishment not reward.

  • Alan Dunaway

    The one thing I have in common with feminists is our mutual loathing of male feminists.

  • Stephen Daily

    She’s right, in that ‘male feminists’ tend to be liberals, and all liberals are hypocrites. She’s wrong, in that masculinity will not suffer if men don’t form a guilt trip over oppression of women–neither real oppression nor the non-existent oppression dreamed up by feminists.

  • Tym O’Byrne

    My definition of feminism is for women to act feminine,

    if some people dont like that…

    Boo freaking who cares.

  • Hairatic Rick

    Hahaha! Come on Jess, you and your ❄ lot ❄ made the ❄male feminist❄ and let them White Knight 🏇 you … So stop whining, you wanted beta approximations of men and that is what you got! HA! Real men have no time for your crazy crap, so elf off! HA!🐸

  • Hairatic Rick

    So many of the beta white knights 🏇 in service of the feminist SJWs ✴❄✳ who attempted to take over the gamer culture, but, got their ass kicked by #gamergate, have been arrested for sexual misconduct and rape of those feminist. Are they real assaults or the feminist day regrets we will never know. Side note: The SJW ✳❄✴ where able to take control of Marvel comic books, not the movies, and have destroyed that brand and are now accusing their male white knights with sexual abuse. 😀 HA! 😁

  • Casey Kowalchyk

    Want to know what the life story arc of the radical feminist is? Look at the example of Shulamith Firestone. Highly influential, with ideas for transforming society – wanted to eliminate the family unit and marriage too. But dropped out of activism in the seventies due to incessant power struggles within feminism itself (funny how the power seeking dynamics that feminists decry in men are what defines their own internal institutional conflicts). Mental illness came in the 80s. When they found her dead in her lonely apartment in 2012, it was because she had been so for a week and began to smell. No husband, no children. Be careful what you wish for – you just might get it.

  • Crispen — ✂ “Sure, they took a class at their liberal arts college, they think it’s terrible what women have to go through with the catcalling and the unfair beauty standards, and they absolutely think it’s unfair some conservative Christian politician can deny a woman access to an abortion.

    Nothing is ever good enough.
    If you have a dick, you have to grovel to be let back into the Feminist Club.

  • Bladrick Whitewolf

    the near future of masculinity no it feminism that has no near future since you not only awaken an upset majority of poor an middle class men you now pissed off you’r longest support the male elites who also now see you as A opsticle to them you’r as good as finish.

  • Lovekraft

    All I hear anymore whenever a feminist speaks is “Pay attention to MEEEE!” and “Open your wallets, patriarchal cis white scum!”.

  • chrisnj

    Spoken like a true misandrist. Feminism is no longer about elevating women to equality (if it ever actually was that). Modern feminism is about tearing down men and destroying the legitimacy of the family.

  • disqus_tFII42Etcg

    The more you remove God and Christianity from the public dialog the more women will be abused by men.

  • AlexCorvidae

    While it has been my personal experience that male feminists are the heterosexual equivalent of the cliche over the top bitchy homosexual male. It strikes me as odd that “actual” feminists would disavow them, isn’t that what they are trying to turn all men into? It leads me to draw two conclusions. 1)They don’t want males to change. They want males to stay the same so they can claim to be victimized by them and bitch about them. 2) These psycho little subgroups of both sides of the collective are circling their wagons and tightening their individual codices of their groups gospel of the PC and SJW. And for that second part, the saca-cynic in me loves watching them alienate one another.

  • True.Epic.Crusader

    Oh, male feminists are DEFINITELY a joke.
    The only thing that’s even more pathetic than a male feminist is, well… a female one.

  • im lost

    Male Feminists are poor examples of human beings

  • DaisyToo

    She seems to be completely ignorant of the fact that femalish Feminists also hate women (as well as men).

  • Steve O

    She’s perceptive and honest enough to recognize the superficial nature of male feminists. She has them
    figured out, but I wish she would make a few more observations. All those pajama-boy feminists are liberals.

    The conservative man, whom she despises, is the type who will argue for her right to arm herself for her own protection, and is more likely to intervene to protect her if she is attacked. In fact, he’s probably in a better position to do so since he is more likely to be armed himself. And it is conservatives who are fighting against the forced FGM of young girls.

    We’re sorry that protecting the lives of unborn children is so offensive to you. It’s not a religious belief that murder is wrong but… well, actually maybe it is a religious belief. But we don’t see an unborn child as part of the mother any more than we see a toddler as part of the mother.
