I did not know, until recently, that it's Pelle Billing, M.D.

In this post from his website, Dr. Billing reviews the rise of blogs, forums and webpages
expressing rebuttal and refutation toward the prevailing Feminist Zeitgeist. He attempts to break it all down into six kinds of criticism being levelled at FemDom. Here is a sample of his thesis ...

"Six Levels of Feminist Critics
September 7th, 2009 by Pelle Billing
Feminism has been a hugely influential political movement in the last few decades. In Western countries such as the US and Sweden, government policy and mainstream media have accepted the basic tenets of radical feminism without much resistance. However, during the past few years, an increasing number of people have started questioning the unconditional embrace of feminism, and whether feminism is the best way to address gender issues in society.

During the past decade we've seen an increasing number of books, articles and blogs that clearly demonstrate that feminism operates from a set of rigid assumptions, and that men's voices are sorely needed in the discussion around gender roles. It's easy to believe that most of these critical voices are coming from a similar place; however, I do not believe this to be the case at all. People who take issue with some or most of the feminist assumptions, do so from very different belief structures.

In fact, I started playing around with different ways that you can be critical of feminism, and came up with Six Different Levels of Feminist Critics:" [ ... ]

This guy ranks anti-feminists in levels 1-6 with level six being the most anti-fem.  Here is his level six:

6. At this final stage, you believe that the male gender role is worse than the female gender role, and that things could only be set right by by having a dominant masculist movement, similar to the way we now have a feminist movement dominating the discourse.

Then he says:

The final level-level 6-is the pitfall of the masculist or men's movement. The moment you enter this realm you are in danger of sliding down into the same anger and lack of fact-checking that radical feminists around the world regularly resort to. If men's rights activists, masculists and feminist critics are to have any success in working towards true equality and a society that respects both sexes fully, then level 6 cannot be allowed to have any sort of real influence.

So if you really see that men have it worse and you want to fight it by banding together with other like minded people then you are "sliding down into the same anger and lack of fact-checking that radical feminists around the world regularly resort to."  Oh boy.

He's got a start here but he obviously hasn't done much activism and seen the actual mountains that we face. 

Is this guy a feminist?

I think the guy needs a 7th ring where, when you hit #7 you resort to using government to strong arm the other sex.
Feminists - "Verbally beating men like dumb animals or ignoring them is all we know and its not working."
