Is "The Future Is Female" Hate Speech?

February 28, 2023

I made a post sometime ago about how I think this slogan counts as blatant misandrist hate speech, and I'm sure most if not all here would agree. This slogan is not only blatant misandry but even calls for genocide, given that the person who coined it advocated for anti-male genocide and reducing the world's male population to 10%. I cringe anytime I see this slogan anywhere be it on a T-shirt or a display at work or a public place. I wonder if people who use this slogan or wear apparel with it are even aware of it's genocidal origins? It's also extremely worrying about the effect this has on young boys when they see or hear it, basically being told they have no future and no place, and don't matter just because they're male. In today's ultra-misandrist climate it's even worse. I've seen some defend it's usage saying it's meant to mean how far women have come and how there's more women in positions of power, leadership, etc. but does such a sexist and supremacist slogan have to be used to acknowledge and celebrate this? "The future is male" is every bit as sexist and supremacist and wrong as this is as well.

I think it's absolutely hate speech, promoting both misandry and genocide, and advocates for supremacy and not equality. It deserves to be in the same class as other hate speech such as "white power" and is no different at all from speech like that. I don't have anything against empowering women and girls, but this slogan isn't empowerment nor should it count as such. I've even seen some feminists say they hate this slogan and feel it doesn't promote equality, which is absolutely correct. If you care about equality, you won't use or endorse a slogan such as this. The future is not female nor is it even male for that matter, it's both having equal rights and opportunities, and neither being advantaged over the other.

The future is female because men don't exist and aren't important.

Yeah, the message is clear. Even when it's removed from its creator. Notice how often "girl power" tends to fall into a superiority complex? Cute, ain't it.

To see if something is wrong, just reverse the genders or situation.

For example, “The Future is Male”, or “The Future is White” is that ok?

Agree, the phrase speaks to the sociopathic component to feminism

[–]CatacombsRave 11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

In its original meaning, yes. It was from a story by gender studies founder Sally Miller Gearhart, where men were genocidally reduced to 10% of the world’s population.

I agree with most of what you said but I wonder if most proponents of the phrase know the origin. If not then wouldn't the changed meaning not make it hateful anymore? I still didn't like the term before I knew the origin which is obviously hateful but the current time meaning more woman simping not quite man hating.

changed meaning not make it hateful anymore?

Flip the gender or flip the races. Does it still sound fine? That's the way to judge it. Get those using it to do the same thing.

1st it's kinda odd to reply after almost 2 weeks.

2nd if the inverse was prominently happening also then yes both can be considered bad but that that's not really happening, the term is obnoxious but "hateful" is too strong & inaccurate. Racially in any way I wouldn't really like any. The rebuttals the push-back of "the future is (historically oppressed group)" would be justify them as some feel-good unrealistic arbitrary-ish artificial ideal sort of thing. Calling them hateful isn't gonna win many people's hearts that mostly agree that the future shouldn't be "..." & should be fair for everyone.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
