Cosmopolitan: Anti-Defamation League Issues Its First-Ever Report Tying Misogyny to White Supremacy

At the request of DU'r "hlthe2b" - I'm reposting this - here



.
In an exclusive first shared with Cosmopolitan.com, the organization details how the hate groups feed off each other, plus recommendations on how to stem the tide.

The unsettling rise of radical misogynist men seems to only be getting worse—and too often go unchecked. So today, in a report first provided to Cosmopolitan.com, the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism details its new classification of misogyny as radical hatred in the same vein as white supremacy.

“ADL considers misogyny a dangerous and underestimated component of extremism, and this report marks the start of an ongoing effort to investigate the ways in which people in the white supremacist, incel and MRA orbits feed and inform one another’s poisonous hatred of women,” the report states.

“Every day as virulent white supremacists make their hatred known, we immediately and rightly call them extremists. We have not been nearly as unequivocal when it comes to men who express their violent anger and loathing towards women,” it continues. (You see examples of some of those statements here.) “In fact, these groups warrant a side by side examination. There is a robust symbiosis between misogyny and white supremacy; the two ideologies are powerfully intertwined.”

2. This is why deep listening to women of color is crucial

In any capacity. The percentage of white women who voted for Trump, for example is a huge clue. These women, most of them, whould deny feminism while reaping the benefits they find positive. The attempt to redefine misogyny.

On another note, MRA’s have been ties with white supremacy for a long time. People downplayed them, gamergaters and such, but it was a growing hoard of angry white men, with odd attractions to shit like Viking culture—whatever the fuck that is. Edge lords and neckbeard are the extreme end, but there is plenty of normal presenting misogynistic assholes who embrace racism as a standard.
