Die Frau, die glaubt, die männliche Bevölkerung um 90 Prozent zu reduzieren, würde alle Probleme lösen

Eine bessere Welt dadurch zu schaffen, dass man Männer auf ein Zehntel ihrer jetzigen Zahl reduziert, war in feministischen Kreisen zuletzt in den siebziger Jahren en vogue. Punktuell scheint diese Idee nun ein kleines Revival zu erleben:

The Femitheist is a 22-year-old criminology student with a three-year-old. One angry day in 2012 she took to the Internet to outline the brutal concept of International Castration Day. After posting it on YouTube she stepped out for a coffee. Returning home a few hours later, she found that all gnashing male hell had broken loose.

Her argument was, although she no longer prescribes to it, that only through mass public castration and the reduction of the male population to between 1 and 10 percent of their current number we can approach "true equality". According to her, testosterone (and by dangling extension testicles) "are the primary cause of their violent behavior."

While she now derides International Castration day as silly, the internet had met The Femitheist. Two years later she is an emergent cult leader, a ball-stepping villainess, or clear-thinking realist — depending who you ask. Today she continues to support the reduction of the male population and generally courts outrage and devotion through her website and YouTube channel. She’s also 200 pages into what she’s hoping will be her 700 page manifesto outlining the philosophy of Femitheism. It’s tentatively titled The Ratio.

Hier geht es weiter mit einem Interview des neuen Shooting-Stars in der feministischen Szene.
