I break feminist down into three camps

Feminist who want equal opportunity

Feminist who want equal outcome

Feminist who want preferential treatment

I don't think anyone should ever have issue with this, but sadly it's the 2 other camps who seem to go nuts about it from my experiences.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I agree with you and would say I agree with the first camp absolutely.

I also think the second two camps are why many people, both men and women, are unwilling to identify as feminist.

I think almost everyone on this earth wants women to be equal(or at least be treated well and have a good life). It's only a small percent of people who don't want that.

That's decent way of putting it, although equal outcome is a form of preferential treatment.

i thing feminism is about freedom and respect.
and not only for woman, for both genders.


The modern feminism though...



wow i just found this gem

I guess not even seeing that it's a woman can't prevent the gender pay gap.

I believe in gender equality. As in, if a male and female student are both failing the same subject in school, I would expect they both receive the exact same support, for example.

Sadly, I don't get the impression that modern feminists share that expectation.

As in the definition (the simple one) of feminism I agree with. I also mostly agree with "Equity Feminism" by Christina Hoff Sommers. Now, as in the generalization of the movement and the ideology, currently, I also think it's a joke, and a harmful one.

Radicals, tumblr, twitter, etc feminists are probably the largest and most whiny and self entitled group to have ever existed. Safe spaces, trigger warning and censorship... These brats literally claim they are left traumatized by the exercise of freedom of speech of people they don't agree with.

I believe in meritocracy, so I also think any kind of quotas, like gender and race quotas is an utter joke. They end up being sexist and racist themselves so they had to change the definition of sexism and racism so it conveniently wouldn't apply to them.

They have also fighting against anyone trying to help men, by either shutting down houses for battered husbands, interrupting speeches about male suicide, and even cancelling Men's Day in one university that would talk about issues like suicide and boys being left behind in education compared to girls.

I could go on with the wage gap, patriarchy, rape culture, privilege, vote for Hillary's vajayjay and plenty of other bullshit spread by these kind of feminists, but I hope I made my stand clear enough.

While I agree with you from my perspective, the women who want equal outcome can only see inequal outcomes it as the result of descrimination rather than women and men having differing preferences.

Women who want preferential treatment know what they want is unfair and still want it.
