These people are odd, and yet I understand to a certain point. You may ask how they became feminist? It takes a few things, lack of male role model, liberal ideology, lack of real world experience.
I have seen them. Usually, they are doubling down on the “nice guy” persona. Trying everything they can to please women. Only problem is, they have zero experience with women (outside platonic “friendships” where they are used on the false promise that if they suck up to women enough one will return their favors).
White Knighting is a strong trait in them. They are trying to tell you this schizophrenic message that a woman can do anything a man can do, and more. And yet they come rushing to the aid of a woman if she finds herself on a level playing field. From what I have seen, they are the ones most likely to view porn for hours each day, most likely to be bitter towards women (hence the most likely to commit violent crime against women) and yet the most groveling towards women when face to face. This split persona towards women is one of the major factors that “the nice guy” creeps women out.
I feel bad for them, they are about where I was in early high school. Not sure how to attract a girl, and feeling powerless. Maybe we should help them out and give them advice, or we could continue to let them listen to women on how to be attractive. That seems to be working for them, no really.
