There’s one thing that’s been bugging me for a while, and I kinda wanna get people’s opinion on it.
A couple years ago, in my gender studies class, the professor linked us to a video we were supposed to watch and discuss in class the next day. I don’t remember what the video was and so I can’t…
Feminism isn’t about equality. If you can come to grips with that fact… that you were sold a bill of sale on goods that weren’t what they said they were… then hurrah for you.
It’s one of the hardest things a person has to do. It’s right up there with acknowledging it’s pretty unlikely there’s a God.
You’ve been told Feminism is about equality your whole life. Just like people in the rural backwoods have been inundated with the gospel and prayer.
You’ve managed to question all of it, and that’s pretty impressive. I don’t expect you to become an MRA, an egalitarian. Hell, I’d think it was awesome if you became the messiah of the WRM (Women’s Rights Movement), but try to see Feminism for what it is if you can.
AND MY FIRST AND ONLY (as of this moment) REPLY IS FROM AN MRA BLOG
yes that was an excellent explanation u made that very clear thanx
Well, I tried… but it appears your hatred and contempt got the better of you.
That’s called “ignorance”, and it’s unforgivable.
When did you ever try? All you did was basically infer I was a misguided idiot who doesn’t know what feminism “really” is without offering any explanation whatsoever.
Feminism is, by definition, a movement that fights for equal rights regardless of gender, so if it’s not about equality, then please do enlighten me because apparently every educated source, even the Oxford Dictionary itself seems to be misguided.
Cookie points for the atheism though, I’m right up there with you on that one.
Feminism is, by definition, a movement that fights for equal rights regardless of gender… DESPITE MULTIPLE FUCKING SOURCES SPECIFICALLY SAYING IT’S NOT THAT.
More importantly… the ACTIONS of Feminism betray that ideal.
Oh, and your OXFORD DICTIONARY definition? Let’s look at that:
the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
See anywhere in there where it says anything about bringing men up to the level of women?
Anything at all? ANY TEENY BIT? No? Not at all? Funny that.
“Up” to the level of women that’s so cute.
Maybe those sources specify the equality of women to men is because, oh I don’t know, women are more oppressed.
Whether the wording is bringing women equal to men or men equal to women, equality is equality. If anyone told you feminism is about misandry, they were wrong and need to be educated.
Up to the level of women…
Like in Education… where boys and men are woefully behind.
In suicide help and prevention… where boys and men are OVERWHELMINGLY the victims of suicide.
In prison sentencing… where boys and men get often upwards to 40% harsher sentences even for the same crime. One judge discovered that females were *explicitly* (i.e. it named females specifically) to get lighter sentences than males for committing the same crime. And Feminists are actively working to shut down prisons in the UK. You can guess which gender.
In access to government programs and services.
In likelihood to die on the job.
In access to voting rights (here in the US if I don’t agree to die at the governments behest I can’t vote. They can also execute me under the right conditions). Females do not have that concern.
Chopping off a chunk of my cock is perfectly legal. How about your genitals?
And the fact that I don’t even have the right to know I am a father? I have *zero* reproductive rights. None. I’m not even talking about abortion. I’m talking about how a woman can just not tell me I have a child, or lie and tell me it is… and I have no rights regardless.
But sure. Whatever.
My grinchy black heart throbs with every masculinist tear.
