not sure how this board feels about feminism. i do not think it actually wants equality. it doesnt view people as people.


But such progress leaves some feminists unimpressed. According to Christina Hoff Sommers, in 2009, when President Obama proposed massive construction industry-boosting "infrastructure" spending, women's groups "were appalled." (HT: Hans Bader)
Even though 80 percent of the 5.7 million jobs lost over the first eighteen months of the recession were held by men, cries for more jobs for women arose from a feminist group calling itself "WEAVE" (Women's Equality Adds Value to the Economy). The group's complaints were bolstered by the National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority, Institute for Women's Policy Research, and National Women's Law Center. Members of the super-coalition slammed Obama for pushing a "Macho Stimulus Plan" packed with "testosterone-laden 'shovel-ready'" lingo that focused on "jobs for burly men." Rumor has it that the ladies also objected to the President speaking in deep masculine tones when talking about shovels and stuff.

and

Resident feminists scoffed. Men? Needing a place to discuss their “issues?” Ridiculous. Men were the issue. Meanwhile, the SFU Women’s Centre had been fighting the good fight since 1974, and offering its small campus office as a haven.
As for a men’s centre? Declared the Women’s Centre’s website — which, curiously, offers a “Male Allies” link, as if to enlist them — well, “the men’s centre is everywhere else.”

In other words, it’s still a man’s world, even if female university students significantly outnumber male students across the country, including at SFU.

The Women’s Centre would, however, support a men’s centre on one condition, and I paraphrase: if the men used the centre to admit to their gender crimes.

“Our support,” it stated on the website, “would be contingent on that centre’s mission statement, vision, and mandate. If the centre were about challenging popular conceptions about masculinity, confronting homophobia, sexism, racism, classism, and ability issues then we would definitely be the first to promote and fundraise for such a group.”

Im pro choice. want women to get equal pay. co pay for contraceptives. but the ideology that believes in rape culture,  male privileged, and whatever other buzzwords that were formulated in a gender studies class can be ridiculous.

Well as I understand it there are feminists, and then there are feminazis who are over sensitive, insane, and/or anti-male. Pretty sure the original form of feminism was just in favor of the same rights as men for women. Then some people went overboard with it.

"Hey guys, you're born with a penis.  You should apologize for your gender's past crimes"

Honestly...bunch of stupid bitches.

It's like black people thinking white people should be apologetic on a personal level for slavery that happened 150 years ago.  Get with the times, stop living in the past.
I'm always right.

I assumed this was common knowledge by now, but it was still very well explained.

There's a feminist in my American Political Thought class. We started the semester by going over Locke. My professor mentioned that Locke was actually very modern for his time, arguing that men and women should have equal roles in raising their children, except when they disagree something, the father should have priority. She yells about how it's not really equality because the father is still taking control. We spent the entire fucking class period explaining how equalist and modern Locke's view was in relation to the time he wrote it. She keeps bringing it up every single class. I hate her so much.

I assume that vid just explains that women tend to take career paths toward lower earning jobs?

At the very least I'd probably be saying "holy shit dude" every time she talked, loud enough so she could hear it.  100%

They go into lower paying fields, are more likely to be in part-time jobs and often take time off to raise or have children. There may be some sexism in pushing women to go into those lower paying fields as a product of society, but the pay gap when controlling for field, level of education and time spent is largely nonexistent (2 cents on average).
