From the video -

If feminism means standing up for women's position in society, then I'm a feminist. But if it means women are the strongest and against men, then I'm not a feminist.

Edit: Sorry, didn't mention who said it. It was the leader of the "warrior women" group.

At work, can't watch -- who said that? A warrior woman?

Yup, like what the heck right?  

Milène Larsson: Would you call yourself a feminist?  

Katerina Tarnovska: If feminism means standing up for women's position in society, then I'm a feminist. But if it means women are the strongest and against men, then I'm not a feminist. Yes I am strong, but in a relationship, when I'm with a man, it's important to show my weakness.  

Milène Larsson then went on to say "It was all a bit confusing, so we consulted a sociologist who specializes in "Ukrainan" femnism to see what she makes of the Asgarda."  

Milène Larsson then had this as her closing statement: "I had hoped to find a mystical warrior tribe fighting for womyn's rights in an oppresive Orthodox society. But the reality was far from that. Sure, the Asgarda teching village girls self-defence and to stay away from abusive addicts. But all the swords and empowerment, is really just a way of attracting strong women, and teaching them to support men. And to continue the lineage of Ukranian patriachy, by breeding a new generation of Ukranian warriors."  

What the heck, I don't think the interviewer Milène wants or is fighting for egalitarianism, I think she wants Womyn's Superiority or Womyn Supremacy. I don't know what to make of it that she's a Managing Editor in Vice

And it actually means the first one. Except on Voat, because every community needs a boogeyman to form their sense of identity against.

I'm curious, have you spoken to any self-identified "feminists" recently? It may still mean the former according to the dictionary, but it has long since been transformed into the latter throughout the US (and in most of the Western World for that matter). This isn't about boogeymen. This is about recognizing toxic ideologies.
