This is the psychological anatomy and flow chart of feminism, although this pattern also applies to the many faces of Marxism, such as veganism, anti-racism, multiculturalism, environmentalism, and socialism. While it is not exhaustive, and the problem is definitely more complex than this simple flow chart conveys, it is my observations on the topic, and I think it is generally true about feminism, as well as the countless masses of people who have had their prejudices stirred up by social engineers, corporate demagogues, and politicians found in the other divisive “isms”:
1) Females hate their own feminine principle, probably due to their formative childhood beliefs and experiences from within their family and culture of origin.
2) It feels bad to hate oneself (self-loathing), therefore self-loathing females find and/or construct a straw man (a false argument to easily defeat) to scapegoat and project their self-hate onto instead, in this case males and masculinity. Rather than seeing traumatized and mentally ill people as the source of their childhood trauma and working through it in a healthy manner, Western society (via the ideology of feminism) tells them it was males acting masculine that was the problem; the low hanging fruit is males, thus masculinity became synonymous with narcissism and other predatory behaviors. (As we know, correlation does not equal causation, but because the people who may have traumatized them as children were males, it is simpler to correlate masculinity as the source of their trauma—this is called egocentric oversimplification).
3) Proceed to regain the power they think they had stolen by men through projecting their self-loathing onto all men (who are labeled as narcissistic if they resist these accusations and have any self-respect at all) via acting towards men like the straw men they created about masculinity and men. This plays out as picking on men, envying them, bullying them, and taking them down a notch or two through false accusations and reminding them of past mistakes, regardless of whether or not these men actually have any narcissistic or toxic traits. This grants the feeling of power (externalized control over others) to self-loathing women, but it comes at the expense of the men they are bullying, which is ironically a narcissistic trait. Self-loathing women are never able to experience a truly satisfying and connected relationships with the opposite sex due to their avoidance of taking personal responsibility for their feelings and working through their childhood traumas.
4) They feel morally justified and superior for attacking men, because such women are acting as a hero for all victims, aka “feminine” women, and they gain a sense of power/control as well for defeating villainous men. This is the drama triangle of victim (feminine women), villain (all males and masculine traits), and hero (self-loathing women who project their unconscious shadow onto males to avoid taking responsibility for their own inner victim, all the while utilizing the so-called toxic masculine traits and tactics that they claim males use, to attack men). Having a sense of moral superiority for resenting and attacking men is called “unearned moral superiority”, because it gains moral superiority via the so-called external virtue of one’s sex, and for jumping on the bandwagon by attacking the opposite sex, and not for doing the introspection and inner character development that actually causes true moral virtue.
Humanity’s social engineers have therefore manipulated the traumas and prejudices of many women and made virtues out of shadow projection, arrogance, hate, group think, and envy, which is an inversion of true virtues such as self-ownership/responsibility, humility, empathy, compassion, autonomy, and gratitude—and they’ve done so all in the name of the ideology of “feminism”.
THE UNITY PROCESS: I’ve created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus. You can give it a try by contacting me for a private session.
