I know this topic has been way over discussed here but;




I mean what in the actual fuck? Seems to be a somewhat common trend for white female "feminists" to hate white men so much and welcome and embrace a religion (Islam) that would see them oppressed?
I dont get it?
Can anyone explain this to me? Thoughts?
The thread dose not have to be just about this, any other examples of people who are clearly confused?

Are you a feminist? A Christian? An atheist?
Are you left wing, bring these people in at the demise of your own way of life?
None of the above?

Maybe that lady in the third pic just feels that being all nice and covered up that she is safe for not being looked at, desired, approached, "objectified"?etc
But if she were to live as a ture Muslim under Muslim law she would lose her rights?
Eh.

EDIT: i used to talk with a Muslim guy i worked with and he expalined to me that Muslim women have no problem with the way they are bought up and treated as that is all that they know.
They're not forced to cover up and etc its all they have never know. They dont feel oppressed.
He said similar things about the multiple wives thing, the women dont mind. But you dont all hang out together , the man spends time with the wives seperately.

Also, i asked my Grandmother just the other week, what was it like for women in your day? being stuck home, not working with no money? was it boring? she said no, we didn't know any differently.
Funny that huh?
Western world changes, many Asian or Muslim nations do not and their women, despite being "oppressed" seem happier than feminists with rights?
Food for thought?
Also many western women are anti feminist so this isn't a thread against women.

ignorance is bliss.. isn't that what they say?
but still even if they don't feel oppressed, they mostly are and its not rare humans can deal/accept damages done to them sometimes its more accepted and goes a bit far sexually..and why I like and dislike things about sex/sexuality of whats accepted or not.

Yes a true saying that is.
I guess we have gone from one extreme to the other. Need a middle ground.
Cant sit on the fence though i guess.

Wouldn't have the slightest clue there, SK.
I don't follow the feminist scene for many reasons, mostly because its changed into something else entirely over time, the objectives are different...

If you just google "Feminist" right now, that definition that comes up, I can almost guarantee... does not accurately describe the current feminist right now. I realize that every person is different, but the odd balls out are really loud right now, and it seems like its all that we are paying attention to in regards to feminism.

I guess so...
The rights and environment these people live in are entirely different, it would be hard to get the information, and what would they really do about it anyway? Is becoming a feminist the best way to go about things, if you had the same beliefs - in that environment?

I don't really understand what the modern feminist movement is about to be honest. I asked a feminist from the original movement and she said it was originally about workplace inequality and allowing women access to jobs that only men were allowed to have.Then when it became clear the new equality laws wouldn't be enforced in any meaningful capacity they started fighting against gender discrimination. I thanked her, because even though the fight went differently in my country (for political reasons I won't get into) she was the start. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be in the job I have now.

I don't know any modern feminists personally so I couldn't sit down and talk to them properly about what, their goals are and their ideals. On the Internet no matter who I talk to it turns into a rant about why I should join the feminist movement, anti-male drivel, examples of patriarchal tyranny, or all of the above. I tried researching it on the Internet but their appears to be different types of feminist movements now so it's difficult to pin down what they actually want. The only common theme I've found is they claim to want equality for women, but what does that mean?

Yeah I can't wrap my head around this feminism stuff, and I label myself a feminist. It just seems like no one agrees what a feminist really is, so I don't bother getting involved in any discussion or politics with it. I even ignored this thread for a while until curiosity got the best of me. One thing I know is that there is this uber fundamentalist Christian segment of the feminist movement as well, so if like the Muslim women who claim to be feminists, they see it as a well-defined principle for how to conduct oneself as a woman and as long as you live within those boundaries, you are cherished. In contrast, the liberal feminists, SJW types if you will, are accused of wanting unlimited rights and privilege, thus making them superior to men.

Yeah it seems now that it is teaching and brainwashing women into believing that they're all victims and believing that all men are potential rapists or pedophiles or something?
Almost encouraging women to hate men, or in particular white men? like it has gone to a very left wing approach. Acting as if all white men are racist and bad and etc.
Just teaching women to feel hard done by and victimized.
Also acting like men are bad when its simply nature (to be attracted to women, women who are sexy and dressed skimpy in particular).
Almost as if encouraging women to be gay or not marry or be sluts or etc?
I just feel its gone too far and strayed from its original purpose.
Women now have rights and work and can divorce and have abortions and vote and drive and have their own money and work in environments that used to be male only and etc etc etc so iam note sure what more they want?
Women have really jumped on the previosuly male dominated hobbies such as video games and anime and cosplay and yeah sure, times have changed but they enter a male dominated environment and cry foul if they are offended by something or demand change yet at the same want to be treated equally?
males are pervs and males are competitive and bag each other. Now we dont know if we should treat a girl nice or treat a girl as an equal?
We lost! lol we cant win.
Its now offensive to treat a girl like a sex object or like she may need help or want to be treated nice, but also offensive to show favouritism or give special treatment? make up your mind!
Of course all women are different.
And if men have things so dam easy and good, why are the number of people whom commit sucide predominantely male?
Now guys dont know whether to open a door for a girl or pull out a chair cos then we are not treating them equally?
oh and i found this lol;

or

We sexist either way!?

Props to women like these; (theres many many many of them

There are a number of "feminists" at my school...English is difficult when people, during the poetry unit, continuously bring the subject back to man's oppression of women.
