I can understand Tor supporting a policy of being against online
harassment etc, but is it appropriate for Tor Project to include
"#feminism" on the official Twitter account?
For the record, feminism is the movement to fight inequality against
only women. A movement fighting the inequality of a single sex is not
something I want to be seen supporting or anywhere near it and it
never leads to peaceful or just outcomes.
I'd like to request due reconsideration is given about being seen as a
supporter of feminism as this is not only a difference, but a negation
and mockery of the concept of equality, especially for those among us
who have campaigned for mens rights in other areas too. I'm already
aware several senior figures of Tor are involved in areas of Women's
Rights and this is to be applauded, but the distinction must be drawn
between a tool which enables people to express and protect their
rights versus supporting a movement based solely on the promotion of a
single direction of inequality they like to call "The Patriarchy".
