What do you think of feminism? The concept and feminists of today.

I think it's fabulous and I agree with it.

Well, the concept, that is.

It just seems to me like feminists these days are just female sexists. The thing is, feminism is supposed to be about equality. A woman would expect no less and no more than what a man would get. Somehow, that got twisted, and now it's all about how women are superior. It used to be a great thing, but it's just become a gigantic hate movement to justify despising men. It's pretty sickening in my opinion and I would say that I'm anti-feminist.

So, tell me what you think! Are you for it or against it? Or maybe you're indifferent? Why?


woman, make me a sandwich now.

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 ! A good friend of mine has been treated very unfairly by a female teacher who openly admitted that she was a feminist. He had been kicked from behind by a girl very brutally. When he told this teacher about it she COMPLETELY IGNORED it and just told him crap like how he would feel if somebody would peep at him (he had been peeping at some girls in the locker room for a few seconds, but not at the girl that kicked him !) and completely ignored the fact that this girl had attacked him, even though he was still in pain ! Feminists have a very narrow mind, they think that whatever a woman does is right and whatever a man does is wrong !

People who judge people about their gender are just plain stupid. I'm all in for equal rights and such, but that doesn't mean the female neither males should act superior.

Imho, lot of female people are acting like they are more worth than males, just because they can get pregnant doesn't mean that they're like queens in the world which we as man should worship and listen to their demands.

hah. One person that doesn't judge isn't enough to change this world. Even if you call them stupid, they will still judge. Its part of human nature.

Women should stay in the kitchen and make sandwiches.
'Cause men suck at doing simple tasks.


I'm just kidding. About that first statement.

I ROFL'd at both quotes.
That guy is a wuss for being taken out by a girl imo. And feminist or not, I wouldn't cut that kid any slack. What kind of loser needs to peep in on girls and then cry about it when one punishes him for it?

I don't support the "all men are slime" school of feminism. Nor do I think all the unfair things in this world happen only to women. I work in a female dominated environment I can't tell you how many times it's been assumed that I cannot do my job as a nurse well, or that I'm of most use as a someone to do the heavy lifting, just because my plumbing is different from the vast majority of my fellow nurses.

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~


I think that women should be equal to men, but what does that mean exactly?
I agree with Fortuna. Equality should be that men and women should be equal. But men and women are different. Equality doesn't mean that women should act like men, it means they should be free to do what they want regardless of gender. Same applies to men. If a woman wants to go out and work, fine. If the man wants to stay at home, cook, clean, take care of kids, that's his decision. And it applies vice versa. I think feminism has done a lot in the past but I think now it should steer towards allowing women to be equal while also defining their own personality. If they want to be girlish, fine. If they want to be boyish, fine. If they want to be those corporate sharks, cool. Housewives? Great! Whatever makes you happy.
And of course, this applies to men as well.

I agree with the idea but not the people who believe in it.

feminism is just like communism great in theory but try to practice it and some asshole takes the reins and fucks it up for every one, i agree with the concept of equality for more than just women i think both gender and race should be considered equal but some people are just to narrow minded to allow that which is why feminism today is such a joke
