Not All Who Wander Are Lost

My name is Madeleine. I enjoy pretty pictures, great books, warm hugs, and adventure.

Only allow yourself
to get lost in someone
who loves you enough
to never let you forget
the way back home.

A new study has recently found that misogyny is actually not a real thing. This study, conducted over the last few years, featured interviews and surveys of a wide range of men throughout the world.

The study claimed that, of the many men interviewed, not one had reported experiencing misogyny. One anonymous interviewee said, “I’ve never had any problems with misogyny in my life. If it’s real, I’ve certainly never seen it.”

Some have taken issue with the study, saying it failed to take into account the perspectives of any actual women. Stephen Phillips, who headed the study, defended the controversial decision. “We wanted to make sure the study was as objective as possible,” he said. “That means we needed to gather data only from people who were unbiased, and had no personal stake in the issue. If we interviewed women, they would start bringing their emotions into it, and their subjective experience. This is science we’re doing, not anecdotal hearsay.”

Kyle Lewis, who conducted a number of interviews along with Phillips, also commented, “[Phillips] is absolutely right about the issue with subjectivity. If you’re personally experiencing something, or think you are, it’s impossible to give an impartial, objective analysis of it. We needed people who could look at the issue from the outside. People who weren’t actually affected by the issue at all, so they could tell us if the issue was even real in the first place.”

"And it turns out it’s not," Phillips concluded. "After all of the men we’ve talked to over the years, we have finally been able to determine that misogyny doesn’t even exist."
