I hated men but now I think the women’s movement is toxic

FOUR years ago, Morgan May donned her Pussyhat to participate in the latest women’s rights march to crush patriarchy – stopping only to stock up on a vegan burger.

But fast forward to 2021 and Morgan, 32, who lives in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, couldn’t be further from herself.

Describing herself as “anti-feminist,” Morgan hates the modern women’s movement, describing it as “toxic” and these days you’re more likely to catch her eating a steak.

The life coach now has more than 22,000 subscribers on TIC Tac where she shares her somewhat controversial views on feminism.

In fact, Morgan argues that modern feminism does not benefit women in any way, and it all works in favor of men.

But despite her staunch anti-feminist views, Morgan says she has spent most of her life dedicated to the cause.

Speaking to Fabulous, she said: “For 15 years I identified as a staunch feminist.

“I was a voracious reader of feminist literature, actively listened to feminist podcasts, and was a huge fan of Gloria Steinham.”

It wasn’t until 2017 that Morgan began to question her own beliefs after her continued mental health battles with depression, anxiety and insomnia were “cured,” she says, by CBD oil drugs.

After this “healing experience,” Morgan says that when she began to feel more empowered in her own life, feminism ceased to resonate with her.

“I started to feel like a victim of the story and I didn’t feel like a victim in my life anymore,” she explains.

In addition to being “pushed back” by divisive messages towards men, Morgan says she felt feminism had forced her to move away from a more traditional way of life.

She says, “I remember waking up single around my 30th birthday and wondering where my family, my husband and my children were.

The irony is that I believe there is no ideology that hates femininity more than feminism.

“I’ve been taught that pursuing a successful career and having casual relationships is in the best interests of myself and women in general.”

With a new perspective, Morgan began to explore her own femininity, something she claims to have overlooked as a feminist.

She says: “Never as a feminist have I heard of the beauty of my femininity, of my natural and pure femininity.

“I realized that this life didn’t make me feel ‘equal’ to a man, it made me feel less than because I was living inauthentic with myself and my feminine spirit.”

While she hasn’t totally overlooked her “masculine” energy, Morgan says too many women have overlooked their femininity, and says it’s to blame for their bad relationships.

“Female energy is so crucial to attracting a male partner, the guys that most women care about,” she says.

“Without this knowledge, many women remain single and wonder why they are unlucky in dating.”

Morgan argues that modern feminism encourages women to spend their “peak fertility years” focusing on their careers and engaging in meaningless sex.

“Neglecting a lasting partnership doesn’t make sense to me,” she says.

“Convincing women that it’s somehow empowering to give men free access to our bodies with nothing in return like a commitment doesn’t make sense to me.

“Secretly communicating to women that if we are to be ‘powerful’ we have to embody a more masculine ‘alpha’ energy, doesn’t make sense to me.

“The whole feminist ideology diminishes the value of women in each of these scenarios, so I don’t think the movement today is pro-women.

When it comes to gender roles, Morgan doesn’t believe in equality – and argues that men and women are rather “complementary” to each other.

“I don’t believe there is gender equality,” she explains.

“When we observe nature, we don’t see equality at all, we see hierarchies.

“Of course all humans are equal in dignity and should be treated as such, but this obsession with equalizing our society is delusional and often dangerous.

“I believe most of what we see in the feminist movement today is toxic.

“It perpetuates a victim’s narrative that western women are oppressed and I think that’s a very toxic mentality.

“Other examples may be women judging other women for making an independent decision to stay home with her children. ”

Although Morgan’s views are far removed from those of the majority of modern women, she has found her niche.

Her TikTok account, where she regularly voices her opinions, now has over 23,000 subscribers, many of whom identify as anti-feminists, a community for which she is extremely grateful.

She says, “It can seem very alienating to think differently than the overwhelming number of people around you, especially close friends and family whom I deeply respect.

“Being able to laugh and bond with others during the same trip, women who have experienced things similar to those I have experienced respond to this fundamental need to belong in me that I have not been able to live. as often as I would like. “

But for every supporter Morgan has, she meets ten other women who are horrified by his “backward” views.

“A lot of women accuse me of having internalized misogyny,” she says.

“The irony is that I believe there is no ideology that hates femininity more than feminism.

“It’s inherently misogynistic because it takes away everything that makes us women.

“I love women and being a woman, and I don’t want to be compared to a man in any way.”

Morgan has since taken a total of 360 on her views and now would hate being compared to a man
