I’m going to say it again: Misogynists don’t hate women because they are feminine. They hate women because they are women.
They hate feminine traits because they are associated with women.
Femininity is not a universal, transhistorical concept. The signifiers of it have changed throughout time. And any time a thing becomes associated with women, it is viewed as corrupting and to be avoided.
- Pink was not associated with girls until after WWII. Only then did it become taboo for boys and men.
- Once religious participation and activism became associated primarily with women in the 19th century, it became possible to talk about it’s feminization. And feminization is a bad thing.
- Professions that become “feminized” (which sometimes still means having less than 50% female representation, just more women than their used to be), tend to become lower paid and garner less respect.
This is why men protect male-dominated spaces (like sports and comic books) so intensely. Because once women are allowed to enter it, it is in danger of being corrupted. Women who adopt more masculine traits in order to enter those spaces are capitulating to a degree, but they also do so because de-sexualization makes it easier to move into those domains, but it doesn’t mean that they are treated as equal. Indeed, for many of them, it means facing harassment, though perhaps a form of harassment that’s more tolerable to that individual woman than a man putting his hand up her skirt.
The solution to this problem is not for “tomboys” (be they actual people or cartoon characters) to validate wholly arbitrary and contingent norms of “femininity.” That is not going to make men of any age view femininity as a positive thing. The solution is to rid the culture of misogyny and thereby remove the stigma on anything associated with women.
