Dear Ken Simon

Let me explain something, as politely as possible.
You came trolling into my timeline, accusing me of "misconstruing" feminism, as if I don't know what I'm talking about. Never mind the fact that I'm sitting here with about five dozen feminist books within arm's reach. The tweet to which you responded was, in fact, a subtweet in response to a feminist who had insulted me after I tried to compliment her.
So, here comes the White Knight, Sir Kenneth of Simon, to add further insults and I'm like, "Who is this asshole, anyway?" Go over and check your TL, and you're a liberal advocate for gun control whose chief concern today is that Hillary Clinton might not be liberal enough for you. You're inside an ideological bubble, an echo chamber divided from the exterior world by a high towering wall of Epistemic Closure, and I don't know that anything I say could convince you to reconsider your opinions. There is no reason for me to argue with you, except for the fact that you decided to show off for your friends: "Look how superior I am to This Guy Here."
Fine. Bask in the warm glow of your self-congratulatory gesture. Just don't expect me to join in the applause. Also, don't expect any reward for being a White Knight of Male Feminism.
Ask around, Ken. Feminists don't actually like Male Feminists.
Eventually, you'll discover that feminists consider you just another misogynist swine, and your effort to ingratiate yourself to them by parroting their rhetoric will only inspire feminists to hold you in even deeper contempt than they hold men generally. You may not believe me today, but if you are intelligent, honest and observant, one day you'll realize I'm right.
Feminism is a totalitarian doctrine of hatred. It cannot be reformed, nor can it be appeased. Feminism is an ideology that demands war against human nature, and the question is whether we can stop this deadly menace before it destroys our civilization.
