I think even if you're a feminist or not, it still depends on the people. They're the ones who will judge and discern you.

i do agree that all woman need equal rights in the work place and so on but feminism to day is a joke, most of these groups want to be above or have more rights than anyone else and that is wrong. Listen I am not sexist my boss is woman and I love her dearly but feminism to day is not what it use to be when it 1st started either.

i agree that feminism today is all anti-male ranting. actually before reading this board i thought that was the true feminism. In my opinion the name is a bit misleading, how about equalism instead?

Maybe 100 years ago feminism was a good thing but today women HAVE equal rights and feminists don't want equal rights, they want all rights for women and no rights for men !


When women normally get paid the same for doing the same work, then start talking about how everything is equalized. Whether there are equal rights in school or not, its definitely only getting started to get in place out in the work world.

As far as people twisting a good cause for their own purposes ... that happens to every cause, good or bad. The solution is to fight the abuse, not to abandon the good cause before the fight for equality has been won.

If it's literally equal, I guess. If it's just whine and moan about not having the same salary but also wanting the perks of being a woman, then no.

As pretty much everyone has already said, i'm absolutely in favour of equal pay/rights etc, but I also agree it's being taken to a different level now.

It kinda ties in with 'chivalry', and why women keep bitching that it's gone. If it has declined, they're responsible for it. For example I was raised to pull chairs out for your female company when in resteraunts, opening doors for women and generally being nice.
If I do said things, nine times out of ten I get either:

A: Silence, with no thankyou
or B: "I'm quite capable of doing that myself!"

If I hold a door open for you, I do NOT want to get in your pants, or gain your favour, or your number, or any combination of the above, and i'm certainly not looking down on you. I just think it's being polite. The one time out of ten that I get a polite smile and a quiet thankyou, it makes my day given how it's so fecking rare.

It's another case of "Give them an inch, they take a yard". Sure, everyone should be equal, but it's human nature to automatically want more, especially in our 'I want it now' and 'What I have isn't enough' society. To any women who don't say thankyou when someone holds the door open for you, pull your head out of your arse and think twice before you start bitching about how all men are pigs these days.
You made them that way.

/End rant

^^ Nice rant, you make a good point
So yeah, over the years feminism got twisted and somehow turned into anti-male rants.

But come on, no need to stereotype against them. I'm pretty sure not ALL feminists are like that.

Everybody should just have equal rights.

Equality indeed is what feminists want, not manhater-ranting. Though, I'm guilty of ranting myself---but some men are just arrogant sexists, I can't help it if I'm sexist too. oh well...

Men and women as equals in terms of essence of being? Yes. However, they are different in their biological and social roles. Of course, an appreciation for nature along with a code of morality would help bring about a better society, providing equality and due rights to the unique characteristics each of the sexes has to offer.

Basically, as hard as some radical feminists seem to be trying, women are not men, never were and never will be. Both are variants of the same species.

I do find feminism--most of it anyway--amusing. This is because many dismiss "biological determinism". I am not dismissing the good things feminism is doing for women, for inequality, oppression, and maltreatment are unacceptable. However, I do think women do have different needs than men and it is important to protect them for they are vulnerable in many areas. Lots can be said on this topic but I will end with something amusing.

I read in an essay by Robert Wright, titled 'Feminists, Meet Mr. Darwin' (it's an interesting essay), that a radical feminist MacKinnon once said: "Politically, I call it rape whenever a women has sex and feels violated." Ahahaha. Sorry, I thought that was amusing. (Not the rape but the fact that such a feeling, regardless of whether or not the women consented to the activity, could constitute the situation as rape is ridiculous. Also, Wright added that this can be used to conversely reinforce that women need 'special needs' due to their natural essence. See my point?)

Peace~
