    See, this is a valid, fair, appropriately placed criticism of the right thing.

    In answer to OP, because people don't know the difference between radical feminism, which the modern day movement has strongly become unfortunately, and actual feminism. Also, there's probably a strong element of stupidity and idiocy involved too.
    I know you're a regular in these threads and you have your views and not likely to shift them, but it is worth saying that this is a highly distorted view of feminism. Most women still want the same basic things - the right to access higher paying jobs, equal opportunities and the right not to be the victims of male violence and routine industrial-scale public sexual objectification. Unfortunately, there is still a way to go on all these fronts and some of them, like the latter, are actually getting worse, not better.

    I see more and more people associating feminism / feminists with nazi ideology, and was wondering why?
    they both appeal to people with a large sense of entitlement and grievance and who have little intellectual capital.

    Yes, however, people in the modern day movement go too far with it. I agree with you. I always support the feminist angle and am a feminist myself - I am just saying I do not think the present day angle helps the issue. Sorry if you misinterpreted my post

    Feminists are equated to Nazis (in some ways) in the sense that they can be extreme, authoritarian screwballs that blame all of societies problems on an entire portion of the population that, for the most part, has done nothing wrong.

    But remember it's not necessarily a literal comparison to Nazism. People who criticize others' grammar are referred to as 'grammar Nazis', for instance, but people aren't seriously suggesting that being critical of other people's grammar is somehow on a par with Nazism.

    What references? Recent? Credible?

    Unless you can actually give these, your OP, and subsequent replies, reeks of immature sexist 'trouble making'.
    "I would actually put them all in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans. I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back."

    Not sure about you but that sounds like a concentration camp to me.

    That;s a joke though.

    You'd think feminists were rounding up men and putting them in gas chambers according to this lot.

    And feminists are typically equated to Nazis in jest, too. But no, not always (see again my first paragraph).

    Not they aren't. They are described as extreme authoritarians and so on. Just read this thread. They think feminism is an ideology with the same authoritarian nature as fascism, or is in fact a version of fascism.

    They could be making legitimate points of argument but they just go overboard into hysteria which makes themselves look stupid and clueless.

    Meh, idk.
    It seems to me that the term 'feminazi' is making a distinct differentiation between normal feminists and extreme feminists. I don't think that anyone who uses the term directs it moderate feminists.

    are you *really* trying to tell me hitler was a democrat?
    No, I'm not trying to tell you. I am telling you Hitler was democratically elected.

    I don't think you can call his rise to power 'democratic'. At Least once he got to power, he immediately got rid of democracy and turned the country into a dictatorship.

    Because some people do not want equality or parity and view any changes in law as an infringement of their existing perrsonal freedoms imposed on them by others as if it were an unelected and unchallenged autocracy.

    Fascism is used as a collective noun to demonise and undermine the morality of equality.
    That is such a perfect description of modern feminism I completely misinterpreted your stance there for a second.

    Yeah, Julie Bindel's name is mud with most left-aligned feminism nowadays for a variety of reasons. And bizarrely, because of some sort of "my enemy's enemy" logic, she's now been adopted by many righties as supposed proof of the 'intolerance' of other feminists.

    What he done after doesnt change the fact he was democratically elected.

    I think you need to understand what democracy means. The nazis were not democratically elected.

    Also, what they did after they were 'elected' does matter, as your original point disputed the fact that nazism is associated with dictatorship.
