She was involved in the UN's "Stop cyber violence against women" 'initiative', which was just... First world problems, the drama.

Okay, I give you that. The fact that it is focusing on a non issue and focusing on one gender of a non issue whereas both genders are heavily affected pisses me off. WHAT ABOUT THE GUYS?!

how i feel about feminism......feminism is a humanist movement for equality of all humans, if you do not consider men to be human.

you see, what feminism is fighting are not laws geared against woman, but the actual way human being interact.
Sure, there are some laws that have recently changed, in regards to the military. I do not and will never believe in a wage gap because the figures do not reflect anything aside from pay, the biggest contributor to pay is hours worked and job. I mean surely you wouldn't pay someone who is risking there lives while receiving hazard pay the same as a cashier, or even a postal worker.

The laws they push for put woman up on a highchair to benefit. there is no rest of this sentence. Anita is a stupid lying manipulative brat and I'm sure there are much more reasonable (i know this however i still stand against them), but what she does is horrible and should not be condoned. she is literally making bank on the lies she spins and this frenzy is being supported by feminist who just like it when a girl says men are evil, and that men are a power that must be changed/ brought to its knees. Now i could begin to point out the shit she has done, like making videos about video games like the hit-man series and dishonored and takes literally the smallest section, of one level, that you CAN beat a woman up but are still penalized by the game for doing so, and saying that these games are evil woman hating games that help guys get off, despite every other person you kill in the game being a man who is in fact evil.But i wont do that because it would be pointless.

So i will bring up the dictionary definition of

feminism.
"the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men."


now you see how this states more then just legal rights, this also makes clear that this is not a movement for men, but to make men equal to woman. If you look at this from my standpoint, where I actually want equality and freedom, you would view this as a very wrong way to define equality or the pursuit of it.


I mean, if i said that i want to fight for men to have equal rights to woman a feminist would look at me baffled, but i would have essential said the same exact thing. because equal rights are equal. But feminism is not about equality, its about empowerment. You hear that time and time again.

now, lets look at the definition of another movement, one largely criticized by the feminist movement as being one that men support because it is the one men made to counter it.


EGALITARIANISM. 1. : a belief in human equality especially with respect to social, political, and economic affairs. 2. : a social philosophy advocating the removal of inequalities among people.


notice how this does not even touch the topic of gender, because it is talking about everyone, of every race, religion or any other human being?

I like that. Me liking that has nothing to do with me not wanting woman to be equal to me, or me wanting to keep my "man power".

But on the other hand, I wont say that men are the same as woman, i won't because they are different, fundamentally. I do not have a period, and my girlfriend has far less testosterone then I. But she should be treated the same way I am.
And I should be treated the same way she is. If I say that I was assaulted by a woman, then shouldn't that hold the same weight as a woman saying she was assaulted by me? And I'm not saying that feminist are all against that, but a lot of them are, because there is a huge divide in the feminist community, should i take the word of a feminist who is about equality with some rationality over the word of another who has none when they are both fighting a one way war on rights? Honestly if these woman were in fact for equality they wouldn't just fight for female rights, or the rights of transgender people, they would also fight for the rights the normal men should have as-well, but they do not because it is not on there list of covered people in the equality race. Men have a lot of legal disadvantages, especially when it comes to woman.

including the ones you mentioned and more.

Id rather be part of a movement for equality that is not gender bias then one that is, even if i was a woman i would still hold this stance because I don't want to rule over woman anymore then i want woman to rule over me, I want to feel safe and i want any other PERSON to feel safe.

Liking the body parts of woman doesn't make you a feminist.

Do you want a harem, or do you want to go to jail for having a harem?

Chris Kluwe admitted to not reporting a rape he had evidence of, and is a known apologist of paedophile Sarah/Nicolas Nyberg.
Cenk Uygur is a liar, a cheat, an all around scumbag and I won't even get into how racist he is but hides behind his own skin to get away with it... Also a filthy commie disguising himself as a liberal.

Fine, Emma Watson's kinda okay... Not as bad as the other two. Not half as bad... Not 25% as bad.

Why would feminism make you feel like a predator unless you are one? It's as if you have a guilty conscience.

When I see signs up about animal cruelty I don't feel like I'm accused of being cruel to animals because I know I'm not. When I see signs against racism, I don't feel like I'm being accused of being racist because I know I am not racist.

Just because women don't want to be raped doesn't mean they are saying ALL men are rapists.
