I have been thinking about how a lot of conspiracy theories that you see in the so called manosphere actually come from feminists. Take the conspiracy theory that Gloria Stienem worked for the CIA. Where did that come from? It came from other feminists as part of an internal fight where some feminists were trying to discredit her. That’s the type of thing I’m thinking of, not feminists planting conspiracy theories (although I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens as a strategy to discredit the MRM).
Many conspiracy theorists, likely the majority of conspiracy theorists, are feminists. That goes beyond the fact that the “patriarchy” the feminists believe in is a conspiracy theory. If you look at the David Icke forums (David Icke is one of the biggest conspiracy theorists out there and a feminist), there are conspiracy theorists actually quoting Andrea Dworkin and saying that there’s a conspiracy to commit “gynocide” (the genocide of women and only women) and elevate men by making us men “post sexual cyborgs with artificial wombs”. I’m sure sooner or later that conspiracy theory will be promoted by conspiracy theorists in the so called manosphere despite how obviously feminist it is.
If a feminist tell me something, I would assume it’s a lie. If a feminist told me the sky was blue I would assume they’re lying. So why does anyone believe conspiracy theories when they come out a feminists mouth? If you can’t figure that out then whenever you hear someone promote conspiracy theory whether it’s Hawaiian Fat Blob or John the Other, they are acting as a conduit for feminism.
