Which is why I said currently. And also I'm actively campaigning for the rights of women to their own body (i.e. repeal the 8th), so I'm hoping we can wrap that up.

Also Ireland has quotas (30% of political parties' candidates must be women) for the Dáil, which has lead to more capable men being left out of elections behind less qualified and less capable women, which isn't gender equality, it's gender authoritarianism.

Hahaha, I'd love to post an example, but I'll leave it at this:

"FreeTheNipple is a movement around women's right to breast feed in public"
Some people have hijacked it and made it about women to "show off their nipples in public like men do", but frankly I think we should ban both because old men nipples are disgusting.

The major problem here is that college students, and Millenials in general, have difficulty swallowing the concept of "taking responsibility for one's choices". Every complaint you've raised, OP, boils down to a lack of wanting to take responsibility.

The notion of having to ask partners, who may or may not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, multiple times before anything sexual is done boils down to both parties not wanting to take responsibility for their choices and the consequences that follow.

The same can be said about having to deal minorities a better hand in order to get them in to a certain field. If you're trying to inflate their abilities so that they'll get into med school, are you prepared to deal with the consequences when, for whatever reason, they can't keep up with their studies?

I am scared to death of the idea that my sister would walk to home alone, she is too, which is just unfortunate for us. That is, that we live during a time in which women are unable to do daily activities without fear of being harassed. I hope in the future all this will be sorted out.

You're precisely right, and I was going to go into that (last paragraph) except for the fact it'd have made my post long and arduous and boring. On the thing I said about women being allowed into specifically my course (but in the UK) ahead of men with better grades, 50% of those dropped out in the first year. I unfortunately don't have the exact source for that, however I trust the secondary source I heard it from because he's usually really good with checking facts. And I feel the same way about it when it comes to minorities and the disabled. Inflating their abilities just leads to a less productive class and a possible less productive workforce, and takes away from competent individuals who could've gotten the opportunity to study that course. (EDIT: And don't get me started on #BlackLivesMatter/#ConcernedStudent1950 lol, self-entitled millenial compulsive liars)

This is what I hate about all the "feminists" the media covers nowadays (NOTE: not real feminists, just the ones the media covers). They're misandrists. True feminists would not do this stuff. I don't give a damn that I'm a white man, I WILL BE HEARD. Just because I'm a man shouldn't mean anything. I want gender equality, not female tyranny. EQUAL rights for ALL. And I hate how criticizing anything a feminist (or "feminist" cause some are actually misandrists) says gets me called a misandrist. Gender norms barely exist for women but are in full action for men. Screw that! If I want to be, I should be able to be as masculine or feminine as I want, without being looked down on for that. Women can be as masculine or feminine as they want, so why not men?
Additionally, another problem is what actual misogyny is happening gets covered up by this crap or things that could easily be circumstantial (for example: the pay gap). Also, they complain about lack of female representation in movies. That's because men are looked down on for watching "chick flicks". Stop the gender norms on men and then this will be much less of a problem.
Sorry, I could go on for hours.

Less kids today are having sex to my knowledge. Might this have something to do with not having to take responsibility for a kid?
