‘It’s very difficult to find normal women who call themselves feminists’: ‘Internet supervillain’ Milo Yiannopoulos stuns Parliament with speech that declares the end is nigh for the ‘man-hating movement’. By Max Margan.
Milo Yiannopoulos has launched a scathing attack on modern feminism during his speech at Parliament House.
The controversial figure labelled the movement ‘vindictive’ and ‘man-hating’ as he addressed MPs and journalists in the Mural Hall in Canberra on Tuesday.
‘Feminists like to say that feminism is about equality for women – about giving women equal standing with men. They have it,’ Yiannopoulos said.
‘What feminism has become – since it has run out of things to complain about – is a mean, vindictive, sociopathic, man-hating movement.
‘You’d be hard pressed to find a journalist who doesn’t describe themselves as a feminist these days. But it’s very difficult to find a normal woman who does.’
Yiannopoulos said Western women should be ‘enormously proud’ of the advances they had made, but said there is ‘no place left for an organised feminist movement’.
‘[Women] now have equal access to education, equal access to the workplace — they get paid the same for the same work. …
Yiannopoulos argued there is a divide in how modern-day feminists describe themselves and the way they behave.
‘The horror of mainstream media companies employing people who tweet things like ”kill all white men”, ”I bathe in male tears” and ”masculinity is so fragile”.
‘People just don’t want to be around that kind of thing… it has alienated an entire generation of women who realise the great victories that feminism fought for in previous generations have all been won.
