Envy is when we want what someone else has. Jealousy is when we're worried that someone else will take what we have. If I want Sally's car I'm envious, but if she entices my husband into going for a ride with her I'm jealous.

Women have traditionally been cast as being naturally jealous, but when you think about it, it really just means we are protective of what we have. Women jealously guard our children and our families. We are jealously protective of our single-sex spaces, sports, and rights, because they are ours and we don't want anyone to take them from us. This jealousy is rational and appropriate because the threat is real and the danger apparent. Jealousy can be destructive if misplaced but it's a primitive emotion there for a good reason.

Men are prone to envy more than jealousy, and some men much more so than others. Some men use envy as a social currency when they show off their car or other flashy possession to the boys. They want other men to envy them because they are seething with envy themselves.

Envy is not protective of anything and there is nothing positive about it. It is wholly destructive and the most dangerous emotion within the human heart, as far as I'm concerned. Possibly why women don't experience it much is because we have better things to do, like protecting what we have, rather than burning with desire for what someone else has.

The men who are most prone to envy seem to be the ones who demand that we call them women. They don't just stop at envying our sexuality, our single-sex spaces, or our place in society as women, either. They envy the most bizarre things like periods, pregnancy scares, and female puberty. They even envy miscarriage and rape. The depth of their envy is akin to an abyss.

I think we need to look at how envy has played a part in the destruction of women's rights. We have recognised that paraphilias and fetishes such as autogynephilia, sadism, and pedophilia, have fuelled transgenderism, but I really think we need to look at envy as a driving force as well.

Perhaps this strong, irrational envy that only men feel needs to be reclassified as something other than just a normal human emotion when it is part of a group of paraphilias?

This makes incredible sense. You have really opened my mind to an entirely new way of looking at this. TIMs are truly the utmost pinnacle of envy. Every single thing they feel has been "stolen" from them, literally everything on earth. No matter how horrible an experience is for a woman, we shouldn't be allowed to complain about it because some entitled fetishist envies it. Just today's Ovarit posts I saw--a man envying quinceañeras so much he stages one at 40, and then this insanity, a man... I'm honestly clueless. It's absolutely nuts. I've never seen this kind of envy in my life except from TIMs. It's basically incels channeling their envy they used to feel towards any man who had a girlfriend to instead envying absolutely anything and everything they were "entitled to" but were denied because they didn't get to pick their sex. It's a catch-22 though; the only way they are able to envy every aspect of womanhood like this is because they aren't women. If they had been born female they of course would not appreciate these things the way they think they would, because the irrational envy wouldn't have been there to begin with.
