So what does this vitriol come to show you may ask. It is pretty simple actually. The flagship of "progressive"(I can't put this enough in parentheses) movement manifesting itself mostly online and on campus in the English-speaking countries is feminism and feminist ideologues. And feminism has counted gay people as their most reliable ally, they took gay men for granted as part of the movement. The logic behind that was pretty simple but lying on a false premise. As we all know the revival of feminism came as angry and bitter lesbians stated all the success of the 60s liberation movement were merely the beginning and much more work lied ahead. And some work they did indeed-creating a weird mixture of equality issues with the teachings of few philosophers flexing and distorting Marxist theory to a point where the leadership of the Soviet bloc dubbed them radicals. If you don't trust my modest opinion on what started the second feminism wave I'll let it's leaders tell you themselves:
So here's how leftism(I repeat-please do not perplex with Marxism as communist were never as mean and vicious as the new progressives are) mixed with feminism and men hating to form modern progressivism. And as gay men are you know-gay and queer they were expected to seek full equality for themselves under the banner of feminism and later the wider "progressive" movement. After all, gay women started all the fuzz, right? Right? Wrong. The same anti-equality logic that formed modern feminist agenda can be applied the other way around. As much as gay women don't need men and profess disgust for masculinity and male genitals(not sure why so obsessed with them) we can say the same about gay men. In fact they are the only male demographic over which women don't have easy to access control.Furthermore just like gay women are women and tried to create a movement unifying on gender basis,gay men obviously would have more empathy and bias towards men.And this is exactly what we are witnessing-big part of gay community left feminism and not only that but stood under the loose flag of MRA. If that wasn't enough the amazing Milo Yanopoulos is the drop that spills the cup.Witty, charming and fiercely anti-PC he enjoyed amazing increase in popularity alternating between ruthless, well-grounded critique of feminist narratives with outrageous and triggering provocations. Feminists and other progressives simply have no idea how to react to him as their usual shtick of calling everyone who disagrees with them a racist homophobe doesn't fly well when we're talking about a gay dude who loves as he says black cock.
