Men Who Hate Women
Men Who Hate Women: From Incels to Pickup Artists: The Truth about Extreme Misogyny and How it Affects Us All | Laura Bates
14 posts | 4 read | 1 reading | 7 to read
A groundbreaking book that pulls back the curtain on the terrorist movement no one is talking about Women's rights activist Laura Bates has been the target of many misogynistic attacks online: from hate-fueled Twitter rants to vivid descriptions of her own rape and even death threats. At first, the vitriol seemed to be the work of a small handful of individual men... but over time, the volume and consistency of the attacks hinted at something bigger and more ominous. As Bates followed the thread of online misogyny farther into the corners of the internet, the spiral of hateful and toxic rhetoric deepened until she found an unseen, organized movement of thousands of anonymous men wishing violence (and worse) upon womenthe terrorism no one is talking about. Men Who Hate Women examines the rise of secretive extremist communities who despise women as Bates traces the roots of misogyny across a complex spider web of groups extending from Men's Rights Activists to trolls and the incel movement. Drawing parallels to other extremist movements around the world, including white nationalism, Bates shows what attracts men to the movement, how it grooms and radicalizes boys, how it operates, and what can be done to stop it. Most urgently of all, she follows the pathways this extreme ideology has taken from the darkest corners of the internet to emerge covertly in our mainstream media, our playgrounds, and our government. Going undercover on and offline, Bates provides the first comprehensive look at this under-the-radar phenomenon, including eye-opening interviews with former members of these communities, the academics studying this movement, and the men fighting back. By turns fascinating and horrifying, Men Who Hate Women is a broad, unflinching account of the deep current of loathing toward women and anti-feminism that underpins our society and is a must-read for parents, educators, and anyone who believes in equality for women.

Hibernation for now. Work and other things very stressful and I just can‘t read about these men anymore who‘s only thoughts in life are to rape and murder women 🥲 you have to be in a very good place to read this. Like being bludgeoned with hate.

A few minor criticisms: 1) It's a bit repetitive, 2) Domestic violence is not terrorism. It is disgusting, appalling, cowardly, and unacceptable. But it is not terrorism just because it is deeply upsetting. 3) She only dedicated one sentence to this, but she believes that the gender sections of toy stores should be eliminated. It's this type of nonsense that makes people hate liberals.

Other than that, this book is important and disturbing.

keithmalek I would put this somewhere between a So-So and a Pick. 4mo

#TheMenWhoHateWomen is a terrifying must-read. Especially the first chapter * Men who kill Women * clearly proves how dangerous these groups have become and how even terrorist acts are committed by them.

TrishB I‘ve had this one a while but know it‘s going to make me mad and sad. 8mo
