Mate. I don't know how you don't anticipate a ban for this.

Can I ask what they said?

I would paste it, but I don't want people seeing my comment out of context and thinking that I agree with it. Here's a link that will show you what that comment said.

Exactly. The patriarchy doesn't just oppress women (although it is most obviously against women). It puts men in boxes too. The Second Sex touches a lot on this.

Hey. Late to the party but we actually had some father's. Day posts and everyone here is pretty welcoming, weird and wonderful.

I think we are mostly more or less serious witches who have encountered a bit of sexism or other bigotry. I think a lot of women or LGBT folks find support and power in the idea of witches. As a population where our power is often taken away, magic, sorority and fear often become a safe haven.

I think that's why this sub exists. Welcome and please help us spread equality.

I just discovered this sub.

At a glance I would have simply dismissed it as insanity, but somehow I didn't. A lot of things just clicked together.

I may be a guy, but I have an overwhelming hatred of the patriarchy as it has always negatively impacted my life. Hatred of the patriarchy and atheism have been the two things I've been most certain about in life for almost a decade now. Recently, I've learned to add capitalism to that list.

I think this community is really cool!

I don't really have something similar as I haven't really been able to find a male experience centered community aimed at fighting themes of patriarchy and toxic masculinity. I've tried for a long time in men's rights circles, but 99% of my time there is always screaming into the void about how they just don't get it. The misattributions to their problems are insane and self defeating. The absolute worst are the ones that blame feminism for their problems when they are so obviously caused by aspects of patriarchy.

Anyways, while I'm usually more of a confrontational poster I'll probably mainly just lurk here. Kick back and enjoy it.

Hey! I just saw your comment and I wanted to recommend r/menslib. It's an awesome, supportive sub without all that gross 'I hate women' stuff like in MGTOW. Hope you like it!
