Anytime I think about giving a compliment I ask myself
"Is that a compliment that I can give to a man?"

If the answer is yes = Go on
If the answer is no = don't say it

And there's exception to my rule,
I can tell a guy "Wow, you smell good" .... I'm not saying that to a woman.

I'm a feminist and I like social politeness. Men still open doors for me and I get compliments often. I will also open the door for someone behind me. Feminism is about being equal, not doing away with social niceties.

Blame the situation that has been created; you can't offend if you do not say anything .

Door opening wasnt a social nicety, it was all about you being weaker.....

Nope. My husband is very happy. The new feminism is about being able to choose the life you want instead of being forced to.its the breaking down of male/female stereotypes. A male can be a Stay at home parent, as can a female. A female can be the breadwinner too.

Sure, there will always be some radical feminists...as there are radicals in every group on the planet. They don't represent what most feminists believe or want.

So I'm insulting the male i open the door for? They always say thanks. I say thank you when they open the door. Females open the door for me too.

I guess everyone thinks I am so weak, and I think that of everybody else....or i open the door to be polite.

I'll also let you check out first if you have a few items and I have a basket full regardless of gender.

We sure do, I saw a friend not to long ago, we bumped into each other at nice restaurant, we had just knocked off duty so we went out for a few drinks after shift, she was out having dinner with her friends, I took one look at her and said hey patty, you look beautiful, I said, Patty, I really like your hair, she wore it in a style I've never seen before. It was A GOOD sight to see, Patty said before she left here Knight, call me. lol...

And you're a guy? Many guys would be weirded out by another man telling them they smell nice.

American modern feminism = gender quality when it's beneficiary.
The overwhelming majority of feminists are silent on issues involving gender equality on court systems, military requirements, domestic abuse, etc.

It's far from being just the radicals, because the majority of feminists are not critical of the radical feminists extreme actions and viewpoints. The reason most feminists don't complain is because they also unfairly benefit from the radical feminists agenda. That's why when radical feminists organizations like the one that produced that infamous call calling video, the so called "regular feminists" are usually silent on ridiculous videos such as that.

I will compliment a womans attire or shoes if I genuinely like something. Not complimenting their hair or other physical features unless I know them.
