So young women, and, increasingly, older women, are adopting feminism as a shield against torrents of psychological abuse. Many people don’t understand this. Old fashioned liberals complain that the new feminism is “intolerant”, and actually, they are right. Some things, though, shouldn’t be tolerated. Women today have been told that, when faced with online trolls, the best answer is simply to ignore them. But is that really good advice?By ignoring it, you’re experiencing a social problem alone. By saying, “I am a feminist”, you’re refusing to let them isolate you, and you’re refusing to play by the rules of the global frat house. That’s why today’s feminism is no passing fad. That’s why our protest, originally called against Roosh V’s own brand of misogyny still went ahead. Our protest represented this new generation of young women and men refusing to play by the rules of men who’ve been able to invade our cyber space for far too long. We’re coming offline, and we’re going out onto the streets. The internet is expanding to take over, commercialise, and sexualise our everyday lives. That’s happening whether we like it or not. But as the internet becomes ever more natural for each new generation, so will feminism, because we need a practical means to protect our minds, our careers, and our bodies from creeps and bullies.
