To be fair judging from the content of the message in the op (which I have heard before) she probably thinks she is a 'radical feminist'

I don't understand the angst.I use Facebook all the time and really don't pay much attention to the views expressed by others.Actually, the entity that expresses the most bigoted extreme maniacal viewpoints on my Facebook is an ordained pious Lutheran Minister,(Missouri Synod), that I was in the service with 40 years ago .Imagine that?

So what? She clearly doesn't want to hear it. The sensible thing would be to move on with your life and forget about it.

For anyone confused by this if they are reading through later, I just want to note that I've changed the thread title, which previously did contain the very inflammatory slur "feminazi"

No I'm not stereotyping. And it's not just based off one person. Whenever I see retarded posts like this, chances are they're a feminist or they claim to be. I don't see posts like this from normal people because, chances are they simply don't care. Don't try and act so dumb founded like feminists don't spout crap like this all day on tumblr.


Gotta agree with others that lots of people spout crap all day long, and no doubt some of them are feminists, but "some people spout crap" and "some feminists spout crap" does not logically lead to "all crap spouters are feminists" or "all feminists spout crap." If you were going to go so far as to post this here claiming it was from a feminist (which you have), you might have done a bit of work to see if they in fact had claimed to be, or had a history of posting rhetoric consistent with feminism more generally. Evidence like "hipster glasses" and "ears stretched" and blocking you when you retorted in the tone you did, is really not very compelling.

As to blocking you, it might have been because you disagreed, but it might also have been because you were pretty snide when doing so. It's her Facebook. If she doesn't want snarky remarks like "Oh those poor girls what will you do now" to serve as an invitation to more retorts in the same condescending tone, then she's under no obligation to keep it up.

For the record though, I'm not defending her post. I understand a little bit of the concern she expresses about culture influencing girls in negative ways, but I think transgender surgery isn't a terribly relevant target, and that bit about "Michael" Obama had me also saying "WTF?"



Usually I don't agree with Lorreen, but this time totally do.

It is fascinating social behaviour, a generation raised to think every opinion they have is worth sharing, and no less valid than any other, yet who have been given tools to isolate themselves entirely from opposing views, and a media and educational system which makes fortunes reinforcing the status quo so that opposing views are rarely met to begin with.

Added to this the lack of engaging with peers in person, and viewing social media status as a way to make easy money and be validated by psychos & sycophants, it is obvious that Millennials might be the fall of Western Civilization.

Well as I said I rarely go on Facebook but said person is always complaining about something. I'm just saying it's like she's got the tumblr starter kit going on.



But yes it is her profile and I might of sounded like I wanted to annoy her (sometimes I want to lol), but how else do you post to something so badly written. Most of the time I don't even bother on Facebook, I log straight back out. However today I felt like posting.

Of course men face sexism but not to the extent that women do.


This is what I mean, "Who cares about mens issues we women have it worse" like it's some competition. I don't know why you think you have it worse...




devouringdragons wrote:

Women in middle-eastern countries barely have any rights, women in the west still face problems.


The middle-east is a shit hole, if your not a girl being raised to breed kids your a boy being forced to be a soldier or something, what else can we do? That place is a lost cause honestly. But once again this shows you seem to only care what happens to women over there.


devouringdragons wrote:

Statistics show that women earn less than men even if they have the same set of skills etc,


No they don't, it would show they get the same money. The whole wage-gap thing has been proven to be false anyway, just search it up on any other source other than tumblr, and you'll see.


devouringdragons wrote:
if a man sleeps around it's okay, if a woman sleeps around she is considered a 'sl*t'.


That's because of the simple fact of biology and were different genders. It's harder for a guy to get laid, it takes more effort, be the one to make the first moves, it's much easier for a girl which is why it's like that. That's not sexism that's just the way it is. If a guy has slept around I don't exactly have respect for him, I believe sex should be a meaningful thing, but if a girl has slept around I lose interest because in my opinion, that's just trashy or easy.


devouringdragons wrote:

What's really comical about all this is that so many people probably have views similar to said person, yet you attack her opinion just because she was a 'female who wears hipster glasses' and to you that equates as a feminist being the reason you attacked, posted and mocked feminism due to one female's opinion.


There it is, the victimize card. You can't debate without the whole 'poor female' thing. Even if this post was from a dude, I would of said the same thing and have done so in the past. You act like their is some hidden agenda to anyone who don't agree with you.

There is a surprising number of people like this, so it's nothing new to me.

They basically talk about how they are such free thinkers and how they are open-minded, but when you disagree with them, they don't take it well even if you're being civil about it. Some feminists literally say that you are against gender equality unless you're feminist, so the movement became a joke to me shortly after that. It's a more common mindset than people seem to think.

The grammar in that post is making me want to throw up and her logic makes no sense, what a waste of space.
Posted 6/3/15



Lmao, it's hard arguing with an ignorant person.
What all of this is really about is you turning one person's opinion into a debate about feminism, her comment had nothing to do with feminism but you thought 'oh she has this opinion because she's a feminist'.
It doesn't even matter if she is a feminist, it's an opinion. Opinions are not strictly right or wrong so regardless of your bias you shouldn't even be attacking anyone's opinion (even if it seems wrong).
You just used it as material so you could show everyone your hate towards feminism, no one cares.

The responder or the original poster of the facebook message. Original acebook message sounds alot like shit I hear Christians say about transsexuals were they kinda bastardize elements of feminist theories to agree with there worldview.
