When Femminists say they want "Equal rights" It really means they want rights in favour of themselves.

Your clearly some kind of knuckle-dragging simpleton. That or you have absolutely no understanding to speak of regarding the views possessed by the vast majority of people who think of themselves as Feminists. Militancy exists in all forms of social grouping, and casting the vast majority of people based on a perception of a minuscule minority is utterly idiotic. By that logic, all Muslims are terrorists and all homosexuals paedophiles.

f*ck them, I'd beat the sh*t out of a Femminist if she tries to spout her dogsh*t at me. How's that for equal rights?

Right, because the reasonable, logical and proportional response to someone with a different intellectual viewpoint than yourself engaging with you in a discussion is to lamp them. Your either about 12 trying to sound like a hard man on an internet forum, or an utterly insipid knuckle-dragging, bigoted waste of blood and organs. On the bright side, though, you've left me with the enduring and warming mental image of some oafish, pre-pubescent twat picking a fight with the smallest woman he can find and getting seven bales of sh*t kicked out of him.

They wanted gender equality no? Men beat each other up all the time over sh*t and it goes unnoticed, But you so much as sneeze in the general direction of a woman, And it's deathrow for you.

This point is continually brought up. It's as though you people actually think that, since violence against women is taboo, that women are some dainty, protected entity and wish to remain that way, but seek equality in other areas in order to gain an advantage over men. Is that really what you people are saying? And you manage to think that, type it out, proof read it, hit the reply button and read the responses without going "that's f*cking stupidest thing I've ever heard! Did I really just say that!? Somebody sow my lips shut!"

Sorry to bump this but I thought it was better than doing a new topic.
Today I found out (pardon my ignorance) that there are women posting pictures in social networks with the hashtag #womenagainstfeminism
Here's a gallery http://www.repubblic...m-92370582/1/#1
I was quite surprised by it.
So what do you think? Is feminism came to an end by the hands of modern women? Did it become simply a form of misandry?

Ok, I honestly don't know how I posted my previous post or what I did, but I'll take a crack at an actual meaningful one this time.

 

I think the reason you're getting these women coming out and saying they're against feminism is because it's really not that relevant any more. In the 50's and 60's you could say women were pretty oppressed. You had adverts on TV that portrayed women as nothing more than subservient cock-pleasers who's role was to pop-out and raise some kids, and bring the husband his slippers when he came home from work. Sexism was rife throughut the work place, they definitely didn't have the same opportunities as men, and social attitudes of the time definitely didn't work in their favour.

 

Things are different now though, I'm not saying it's perfect, but they are way more equal and have it way better. There's not as big a need for feminism in the modern world any more, it's been diminished. There's also a much more negative image of modern day feminism and feminists. Like with a lot of things, it's often the ones that shout loudest that are the ones you notice, and they're the ones that get most attention. And with feminism the ones that shout the loudest just happen to be the total f*cking crazy nut jobs. They have absolutely ridiculous views and say absolutely ridiculous things. It puts people off the whole thing. It's not just the "extreme" ones that put people off though, even the moderate "typical every day" feminist can be at odds with sanity.

 

As an example: The song by Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines" was banned in numerous places, chiefly under pressure from feminists, because it apparently "encouraged rape" and "sexualised women". There was a group that also tried to get it banned in my university and it's nightclub, thankfully they failed though. The whole campaign was total bullsh*t, it didn't promote rape at all and whilst the video may have sexualised women, about 99% of music videos f*cking do that. It was just ridiculous and created an issue where there wasn't one, which modern feminism as a whole does seem to have a tendency to do.

Feminism ... oh, wow, where to begin.

 

To me, the word 'feminism' seems to mean different things to different people. I mean, plenty of people equate it to the 'man-hating feminazi'. In some instances, I've felt like admitting to being a feminist (regardless of whether or not I am a feminist) was a bad thing, because people would instantly assume that's a part of who I am, and what I stand for, and it couldn't be further from the truth. So yes, I'm all for equal rights. And when I say equal rights, I mean 'equal', not that I should be at an advantage because I'm a woman. But, I'm often somewhat loathe to actually use the term 'feminist', because for some people, that's a negative thing. It equates to the radical views, which I don't myself agree with, but apparently, if I claimed to be a feminist, in some way, I would be. 

 

Look, I consider myself a capable, independent woman. I can support myself, I'm happy with my life and my career. I'm ambivalent towards 'having a man in my life' not because I hate men, but just because I feel secure enough in myself, now, that either option is fine for me. Whether I'm in a relationship or not, whether I get married or not, whatever. And it's not that I don't come across some small forms of gender bias in my day to day life; there are customers who refuse to accept that my place of work has a female manager, and largely female staff, and as ever, I run into the 'you're a girl who plays video games' (imagine that the place I live in is about a decade behind the times, okay?), and of course, the guy who assumed that since I'm single, I must be a lesbian, but it doesn't bother me because those things don't define who I am as a person. The fact that I'm a woman doesn't define who I am as a person, and I'm of the opinion that this is the way it should be. I also encounter, from my family, the age old 'you'll want to get married and have kids soon.' I'm 22. What if I don't? Should it really matter that I might never get married or start a family? No. I should have the right to choose what I feel is best for me, and again, my gender shouldn't define that for me. Just because I'm female doesn't mean that one day I'll wake up and suddenly want to walk down the aisle with the first stranger I meet and pop out a few kids. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. At this point, I do not want that for myself. I shouldn't be made to feel as though I'll have to want it, though.

 

And at the end of the day, to me, that's what feminism is about. What gender equality is about. Having the right to make your own decisions and choose your own path without fear of being judged by society for it because it doesn't tie in with certain conventions and expectations. It's what any kind of equality should be about. 

 

So, when it comes to women being 'against' feminism, I don't think it's necessarily that they're opposed to the idea. But maybe they're opposed to the idea of what feminism has come to be known as, rather than what it is at its core; perhaps they, too, feel that feminists hate men and want to be put on some kind of a pedestal, simply for being a woman. Or, indeed, maybe they feel as though it's just unnecessary. I think to a large degree, it is unnecessary. It's just that my family are somewhat ... too 'traditional' for their own good.
