There are three types of people on my block list:
- Those who hate feminists.
- Those who hate men.
- Those who hate everyone.
Scratch that. There is one type of person on my block list: Fundamentalists.
Fundamentalism is “strict adherence to the basic principles of” anything. In other words, it’s narrow-mindedness about generalisations, if that’s enough of a contradiction for you. If you want even more contradiction, please note that, in defining fundamentalism, I have been narrow-minded about a generalisation. This is what’s known as “A Postmodern Fetlife Post”, which is also known as “I can’t be bothered to fix my logic problem, but if I point it out first, it will trick readers into agreeing with me.”
When my block list was young, I thought hate groups were the problem. Then my block list grew up, and I thought men’s rights activists were the problem. Then, I thought a particular kind of internet feminism was. Essentially, I got way too fundamentalist about the fundamentalists on my block list, so I couldn’t see how fundamentalist I was being. This is not a complicated post, I swear. Here. Have a cupcake. They’re iced with glittery meta-ness.
