A self-identified male "feminist," who for decades traveled the country teaching women self-defense and other empowerment techniques, reveals in a new essay that he has ditched the feminist movement completely after witnessing the attempted takedown of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The essay, for The Federalist, is titled: "The Kavanaugh Smear War Broke My Decades-Long Support For Feminism."
What did he say?
Albert Marrewa, a counselor with decades of experience in the feminist movement, admits he was "wholeheartedly" committed to the feminist movement, but after witnessing the far-left shift the movement has undergone in recent years, culminating with the #MeToo movement and the Kavanaugh smear campaign, he no longer identifies with the movement.
"All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular," Marrewa wrote.
"Yet it wasn’t until I witnessed the Me Too movement snowball into an all-out, anti-male witch hunt that I realized good men were in real trouble. Astonishingly, after having been an advocate for women my entire adult life, I quickly learned I was still considered the “enemy,” simply for being a man," he explained.
The development, Marrewa wrote, is something he never imagined happening, explaining the true goal of radical feminism is the prosecution of "any man who dares to wear his masculinity on his sleeve."
"In fact, masculinity is their true adversary," Marrewa said.
"To be sure, every man—regardless of his age, race, political persuasion, or sexual orientation—is in their crosshairs, but especially those who embody traditional masculine qualities, such as strength, discipline, direction, independence, confidence,and assertiveness. And God help him if he’s also white, Christian, conservative, affluent, or holds a position of power," he explained.
Marrewa went on to explain that as he ages — he's nearing 60 — he's growing less concerned with his well-being and how radical feminism affects him, but rather how it will affect the next generation of men.
Then he explained how the Kavanaugh charade is the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for his identification with feminism.
As regrettable as it is, the recent attempt by all the usual suspects to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court at the eleventh hour by destroying his character, reputation, and life, via salacious, unsubstantiated, and uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct dating back thirty-odd years to when he was but a teenager, has obliterated the last vestiges of the “women’s advocate” dwelling inside my heart.
Setting politics aside, watching a good man being taken down by a mob with zero regard for due process and the presumption of innocence is the final straw for me. In other words, I’m done. While it pains me to say this, I will no longer champion any self-described women’s cause unless things dramatically change for the better.
