Based on the "Manifesto for Conscious Men," a collectively-written document from a number of men who feel deep appreciation for the gifts of the feminine as a balance to those of the masculine. This document acknowledges many thousands of years of dominance of masculine power, and offers an apology for the suppression of women, in the spirit of a fresh start. The authors do not advocate the domination of men by women or feminine energy, but feel that a balance and equal respect for both energies will allow for a new wave of evolution on our planet.

hopscotch Asked: What motivations do women have to critique feminism?
Men are doing it because they "hate women" according to the local feminists here, so I was just wondering why some women do it and say some of the same things we do.
There are many women that critique feminism and some of them are gaining popularity and exposure. Among them are Christina Hoff Summers, Carrie Lukas, and Wendy McElroy.
When you read the works of the afore mentioned women you get a sense that they are truly interested in equality and the organizations they represent are indeed egalitarian movements.
Some women here deny that feminism has the capability to be anything other than a wondrous "happy place."
So men critique feminism because they hate women apparently. Do women also hate women when they critique feminism?
Best answer about What motivations do women have to critique feminism?:
Answer by Voice of Reality
Certainly hating women can't be the reason for critiquing feminism. Seeing that most women hate women more than just about any man could ever hate them. I think we'd see WAY more women critiquing it if that were the cause.
The only reason women would have to critique it is morality. That is all. Feminism, at this point, is simply gaining more and more special treatment/privileges for women. So, it only helps them. Why would anyone even think about going against their own special privileges? Well, morality remains as the only reason left. Let's see just how much they have...
Numerous fems claim that, "Well I'm a feminist and I just want equality not special rights and privileges." Expecting that to make everything okay. The reality is: If you are part of a group/movement/organization/whatever that is doing harm to society.... You are part of the cause, not the solution. Regardless of if you agree with what the group is doing, you are still partaking in it by not criticizing it.
Georgebonbon: You have a point. But, feminism is not actually preventing anyone from getting married. Women have all the power once you get married, so odds are the guy isn't going to initiate a divorce. Especially if she's a good wife. But, also, having the makings of a good wife coincides with having morals.
