No but your word choices implied it. you use a lot of pronouns, whenever you specifically refer to a gender it's always females as the victims of males. and your little cant at the end again implies that 'we' are all female through word choices such as 'manhater'

but perhaps I'm worrying too much.



a lot of pronouns? more like one brief example where i happened to use a female victim situation.

it's a riot grrrl quote. it doesn't apply exclusively to females. it applies to feminists, aka people who believe in equal rights for both genders. when you give yourself the title of feminist, society gives you the title of a manhater.

you're not worrying too much, but you're trying to make it out like men are on the exact same level of discrimination as women. i'm not saying misandry doesn't exist and isn't a problem because that would be sexist, i'm just saying that misogny is a bigger one.

No, I didn't go through any such faze and I don't buy into your tale of it's existence for one simple reason. It flies in the face of common sense.

it's not a "my grievances are bigger than your grievances" game. it's just the way it is.

Feminism is just the female version of male ego in action. Plain and simple.

If females want equality then I should be able to beat them the hell up without them crying I shouldn't be able to. What kind of equality goes half way? Give em what they want I say!

I think it's best to gain an understanding of both sexes as provided by neuroscience and modern psychoanalytic methods.

But since most people are going to remain uneducated and stuck at, or below, the highschool level, we must find alternative avenues. Movies and media bridge the gap. Cultural media has long been the alternative which western societies have used to apply social change. And as you touched on, it is done through the application of labels.

If you label someone exhibiting misogynistic tendencies sexist, you create a social stigma around them and force them to react. It is through that reaction which many individuals around them will conform (so even if the target does not, their peers will). Although as a method it could be called crude, we shouldn't bear the method any ill will. All of the other known mechanisms for rapid social change are far more violent and cruel.

Feminism is the dumbest thing ever. Also, bring back the skirts. I understand that you want to be equals or better, however, wearing the same clothes as men won't do that. IMHO FEMINISTS SUCK. Sorry for being so blunt but women have the same rights as men, what more do the feminists want now?

They want higher paycheck, more protection in jobs, more security in life against male condescending assholes, ect.

They ask for a lot of reasonable things, but they use the word equality without considering how far that word reaches, so I have a problem with them.

I personally I had no Idea that sexism was still a problem I thought that that age was long behind us. Maybe its not a big issue in my area or maybe I need to watch the news more often because this is news to me. Who am I kidding I aint gonna do anything about it...just suck it up and deal with it life is unfair sometimes.

Maybe your old age is getting to you papa. Equality is defined as equal rights. They're not asking for equal rights, they're asking for special treatment regardless of there situation due to gender. It's not there fault, but it's not my fault I was born a guy either and have expectations put on me women don't.

If you find it wrong that I think it's retarded they claim equality without following through with what it actually is, then we'll just agree to disagree. At least they're in the military now, though not many on the front lines, eh?

What has your statement above got to do with beating people up? I'll agree with you that I have issues with Feminism pushing for the erasure of barriers while quietly continuing to enjoy certain privileges of being female.

Your specific example is a crock though. The military is one of the last bastions of misogynism. You can't fault women for not getting combat roles when the recruiters, instructors and the vast majority of their trench mates are thinking "bitches leave"
