When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

...If there are examples, how are they "mostly" a strawman fantasy? Shouldn't there be a "not" there somewhere? Maybe after the "mostly"? Confused
I agree that they're a tiny minority among those who call themselves feminists (and I say "call themselves" because feminazis are anything but feminists), but they exist. The problem is the attention that they garner. They're not worth the brainpower it takes to listen to their shit.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

No it is mostly a strawman as they take a few quotes from the far lunatic fringe and try and paint everyone who calls themselves a feminist with the same brush. It is much the same as saying the WBC represent all christians in all matters.

To be fair, every group has its nutjobs.

Yes they do. But to say the nutjobs are not only the face of a movement but the only voice therein is a strawman and that is what is done to Feminism.

This is also true. It would be better to address them then the whole group.

In that case, you're 99% right. The missing 1% is due to classifying feminazis as feminists.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

No the difference is the Fundies are a clear and persistent sect were as the "Feminazis" are mostly a strawman fantasy with only a very few and far between example.

Except the hundred of thousands of them on tumblr, and the many on this forum; like the guy with Saddam Hussein for his avatar.
