You also seem out of your depth at understanding simple bits of the
English language.  "Misandry" refers to the hatred of men.  You'd think
that's what feminism is only if you glean your conception of it from
reading Newsweek and The National Review.

If, perchance, you are interested in actually understanding the
connection between Marxism and feminism, there are some good Marxist
feminists out there.  The crackpot sociologizing that makes up the rest
of your post doesn't give me much hope in that connection, though.
