The [radical]feminism I see today [media washed]: Get even. Hit them where it hurts. Not equal treatment. Just hurting.

Haven't you used this story before?.. and didn't come up with something against why they didn't get on with the law? (and that at times people should know if they earn more or less and when to act about it).

also why do you create so many threads about this (mostly the same if I am not mistaken)

I'm not sure that it's me creating a majority of those feminism threads. I apologize if I've been repeating threads.

Sexism is when a woman assumes I am being chauvinistic because I have a penis.

not really feminism but I just assumed they where on the same thing, maybe they was.

oh well at least sexism is sexism, good or bad.
even though most say it like it was only meaning negative things.

> What is sexism to you?
Belief that one sex is superior to the other. Modern society condemns sexism against women, but sexism against men is still considered completely fine by the general public for some reason.

> Is job discrimination still a major, widespread problem?
Diversity quotas are a form of discrimination, so yes.

> What should we teach kids about gender (i.e. what it means to be a boy or girl)?
A child isn't ready to make decisions about gender identity. Tell them about that stuff when they're older. As for "girly things" and "manly things", let them like whatever they like. Don't try to force them in either direction.

> What should we do about the low numbers of women in stem?
Nothing. Trying to force more women into stem fields would be job discrimination. It doesn't matter if one sex is more interested in a certain field than the other: men and women are different and are bound to have different interests. What matters is equality of opportunity.

Discrimination based on sex.

I think It's funny to be honest, because people are so fucking useless.

If a woman wants to do something, let her do it

If A man wants to do something, let him do it

If a woman wants to run a country, let her do it

If a man wants to run a country let him do it



We are all humans, We all move our arms, and walk with our legs, see with our eyes, and speak.

Because it is the man who has created this problem, and a woman to take control over it.

Thats why I hate all men.

sex

noun

(chiefly with reference to people) sexual activity, including specifically sexual intercourse.
"he enjoyed talking about sex"



ism

noun informal derogatory

a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.
"of all the isms, fascism is the most repressive"



So ignoring the actual definition and going with the definition of the two part of the word, it is the practice of having lots of intercourse.

I remember as a child a kid told a friend of mine she couldn't play softball with us because she was a girl. I took her on my team and she made him look like an idiot by out-batting him, out-pitching him and driving home more runs. With that thought in mind, I think sexism is nothing more than one idiot (male or female) thinking their sex is unlimited at what they can do while the opposite sex is limited (or in many cases the enemy). Mistreatment in that fashion can happen in schools, homes or workplaces among other places. A father can think his daughter is fit only to be a housewife; a boss can think a woman is unfit to do heavy work: A teacher can anticipate a girl being smarter and the boy being more fit to do menial labor around the classroom. There are so many examples out there but it all comes down to that one ass assuming a person's abilities due to their sex.
