ENVY AND MALEVOLENCE: THE SHAKY FOUNDATION OF GENDER STUDIES

Abstract


Most versions of gender ideologies are founded on the implicit or explicit assumption that all relations between men and women are based on male oppression and female victimhood throughout the entire history of mankind.

 

Gender theories do not promote female autonomy but rather foster a mentality of complaint and the demand for third-party-support, such as from state institutions in welfare states, or even redemption, whereby benevolent men act as bearers of a resurrected chivalry. Gender theories belittle female contributions to society and culture, for example, by socializing children for the functioning of society, aiding demographic reproduction as well as shaping the culture of food and living.

 

There is no evidence-based research that shows women are as passive and disabled as portrayed in gender studies. The glorification of female victimhood is instead based on a deeply embedded psychological condition of gender activists in academic institutions and administrations. The driving force is their envy, be it subconsciously or openly expressed. The cause of their envy is simply the difference between the sexes and the absence of pride in women’s own natural abilities and cultural contributions.

 

Keywords: envy, malevolence, gender struggle, totalitarianism, conflict solution, misogyny, conflict avoidance.
