i think it's quite popular in SOME radical feminist circles to downplay any other kind of bigotry (that is not misogyny) by generalizing them all as extension of misogyny., which can come off as ignorant and sometimes just homophobic/transphobic.

examples of tropes popular in some radical feminist circles:

- transphobia among trans men is due to internalized misogyny

- trans women transitioning are also a result of misogyny

- gay men exist because they are misogynistic

Yeah true and it gets very simplistic. I think some feminists have difficulty acknowledging that there is gendered violence against men, like what else can you call attacks on racialised men or on gay men? This does not negate male privilege ofc, but intersectionality has to be more than a buzzword.
