I will disagree with you right here. History and statistical data do not show that both men and women are equally abused in domestic violence. While I will agree that there is a lot of mis-information, I don't think it's right to cast a negative light on the movement because emphasis has been placed females.


Men aren't so good at coming forward about it either though and therefore don't get counted in the stats.

There's also plenty of women that feel it's perfectly ok to assault a guy and not expect him to retaliate, which is a pretty bad mindset to have - especially when they come up against the guy that's all too happy to give a girl a thump.

Nobody should be thumping anyone, of course.

This is probably true.

Feminism I think confuses the hell out of men, and rightfully so. I think for the most part it was created by a bunch of over bearing women. I am not passive myself, but I pick my battles and some of the battles they choose to scream about just are not all that serious to me. lol I like men. I don't see them as the enemy. LOL


Can't remember the woman's name, but remember her quote as something like "Feminism wasn't supposed to be at the expense of men." and she was one of the pioneers of the movement.

But I bet a lot of men don't feel that way. lol Some women do go to such extremes with it. I see it all the time. I don't want to be bothered with that kind of extreme thinking. lol

I don't know about extremes, but it might appear worst because not all things have moved on equally in all directions and some things need to catch up with others.

Yeah i agree completely


I don't in any way consider myself a feminist..... but of course i get irritated when men think they can treat women differently or think they are better just because they are of the male gender. The reason for that though is because i am a very opinionated person and believe in equalism as a whole. I think judging someone by their size, color, gender, age etc is wrong and very immature. Even if I were a man and saw another man treating a woman badly and telling her she was less of a person just because of her gender, I would be mad and step in. Its just wrong and I stand up for what I believe in.

At the same time, I'm not the type of person to protest or go out of my way to engage in any "feminist movements" lol

Feminism may be helpful in some cases, but the majority of them are angry and unreasonable. It's hard to take them seriously.
If you want to change someones mind, you are better off being peaceful, and using rational statements and facts.

Christina Hoff Sommers is my kind of feminist.

Text book feminism is great. I think for some it's been hijacked to some degree
