I mean she speaks on women's rights and take up very good issues. So i agree on her, are people just ravaging for no reason?. I dont understand the internet sometimes, nor do i wish to. Internet sometimes feels like cancer to be honest. Not saying opinions are bad but sometimes i wish internet wouldn't exist, and that you had to work hard for something. Hard work makes you tough in my opinion

People use the internet as an outlet for their insecurity and uninhibited "id" (as in the id, ego, superego). They're not necessarily anti women's rights but they feel somewhat conflicted about it and they can't very well lash about the issue in a real-life setting.

Once I found out what it was, I hated it instantly. I'm going to have to say it was the United Nations connection, as by this point we have to be pretty used to celebrities jawing off about their pet peeves.

I mean cant people just say don't agree with insane people. But when a sane person speaks thats somehow bad?. That doesn't make the anti group any better in fact it makes them insecure and childish more than ever.

It's the same reason you have plenty of immature people act terribly on forums and comment sections. They don't have to believe in what they're spouting as long as it feels good to say it out loud (or type it, I guess). That said, there are people who truly are against this and that's fine; it's their right to believe that and it's the main reason people make this kind of speech. As for the celebrity status, I don't think that their words hold more weight than your's or mine but they certainly have access to a bigger soapbox audience.

One possible reason is that, given her actress status, people tend to think that in her speeches she is acting.

Looked at some of the comments and I thought there were some legitimate points.

I honestly wonder why the transgender video by google got so many dislikes. Raiding by transphobic people from /pol/ seems to be the likely answer.


I admit, I'm a bit baffled by the science, but if the therapists of today argue in favor of methods to control your body rather than your mind, I can't really argue with claiming the entire field is corrupt.

I just don't like Hermione so anything she does gets a dislike from me.

It is not that there is a majority of dissent, far from it, it is simply a law of statistics coupled with human behavioural psychology that the vocal minority will always seem loudest, and that on any given posted topic, there will appear to be a majority of dissenting voices.
This is because those who agree or feel they have nothing meaningful to add, would rather simply give a thumbs up/like click and move on, thus making their presence effectively invisible.
Conversely, you then have to contend with a triple-dose of
a) posters who actually have some violently opposing emotionally based standpoint, who thus feel compelled to rant,
b) trolls
c) organised/paid campaigners against a given movement.

Many think that the loudest voice is the majority voice simply because there is no voice of reason to drown out the crazy voices, while forgetting that the primary enabler of social media (including online forums) is anonymity. This brings out the worst of the lowest common denominator of vile intolerant behaviours, which amplifies the 'anti' message through emotional response.

You can also apply this principle to talkback radio, shock jocks, tabloid media, (e.g. Fox/Newscorp) or any unmoderated social media feed you care to name.

The biggest mistake you can make is to ignore the few legitimate dissenters or to generalise or label ALL the dissenters collectively with such derogatory terms as 'deplorables', because underneath the emotion lies a legitimate issue, be it a lack of understanding, poor education, adversity or other personal circumstances which should be taken seriously and addressed on a case-by-case basis.
Unfortunately in politics, no-one has the time to address people individually, and the voice of money usually drowns out the voices of people anyway.

I didn't see anything "wrong" with it..

shes simply asking for the same things Women have been asking for since the 1960s.
safe places to learn, work and live, equal consideration of womens ideas, and equal payment for their work.

women are not second class citizens, they are equal helpers in the building (or destruction) of this world. they SHARE the same fate as men.
they live work reproduce and die like anyone here, they have healhty years as well as sick times,
and times when things go well for them and times when things go badly.

ALL women have my respect, ( unless of course they DO something to EARN my disdain, but I will say the same thing about men.)

Gender equality is something that should have been settled a VERY LONG time ago. Womens perspective is a good thing and it has value.
of course, Just like Men's perspectives, they sometimes don't fit the situation at hand and will get rejected. but I've seen that happen to mens ideas too. so Its all good.

the whole Gender issue has NOTHING to do with wither or not women are smart or talented.

the whole problem boils down to the bedroom, and the questions of which one is dominant/subservient..

this "question" once answered, tends to set a trend that gets applied "outside" the bedroom. which is wrong... but it happens anyway.

Men should learn to guard against that happening.. but they don't. they were/are too busy trying to conquer the next
"opponent"
( take a BROAD HISTORICAL view of that last statement)

Nobody wants to be preached to. Especially by rich and famous people who live in their own little worlds.

Even the ancient greeks knew what would happen if women were given too much political power
