"I see feminism as providing women with equal opportunities, the ability to choose and follow dreams without any fear of judgement. It's about allowing a woman the freedom to decide whether she does want children, whether she does not want children, whether she wants a career, to attend university, marry at a young age, not marry at all, be a lesbian, be celibate, be a prostitute, be a nun, be promiscuous, be a CEO, be a miner, be a doctor, be president, be a nurse, be a mechanic, be a chef, be a beautician, be a scientist, be a stay at home mum, to have an abortion, to not have an abortion, the freedom to make any decision at all. It's about making those decisions without fear of judgement and without obstacles of discrimination. It's about obliterating the pigeon hole so that women can be who they want to be." ~ Femina

And you refer to YouTube when there are real women around?

Why would I need to watch videos about feminism?

How do you feel about racial equality?

Equality equals equality.
Sorry you feel that women are inferior and don't deserve the same rights as men.

What does that make you?
Misogynist Definition | Definition of Misogynist at Dictionary.com
hatred, dislike, or mistrust of women.

I can see why you hve trouble with women. Most certainly.
Racial equality? Fine. Is somebody trying to pull the race card?

K, I've never said that women don't deserve equal rights as men. I said that most feminists don't want equality, between genders.

You've said several different things, now you're saying that most feminists don't want equality.
Ummmmmm, you might want to look up feminist.
You seem to be having a comprehension problem here.

Feminism Definition | Definition of Feminism at Dictionary.com
1. the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.
2. (sometimes initial capital letter) an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women.
3. feminine character.


Where do you get your information?
And if women didn't want equal rights, they wouldn't be feminists, now would they?

Yep, I can see your hatred seeping out.
You might want to stop digging this hole now.
I'm on another continent and about to go to work, I can't wait until American women wake up for the day and start posting.

Then why is the divorce rate over 50 percent in America?

This is what he or she said.

"What I've heard from a friend is that feminists don't want equality. Do you think its okay for women to beat their men and get away with it?"

My take on the statement is that this person feels women get away with acts of violence, and feminists will always show up to defend these violent females regardless of the circumstances.

You don't think women get away with maiming and killing men and children because of their gender?

Yes, blame it all on women.
Yep, men have nothing to do with it at all.

Someone leave you? Gee, I wonder why?
You should absolutely hate all women now.
You're apparently making the personal political.

Logic can be your friend.

You apparently hate women.
This is your issue, have you considered counseling?

Yep. Blame in on the women. I love how there was a thread earlier where a poster blamed "womens liberation" for ruining the "sacredness of marriage".

Chielgirl and I KNOW that men NEVER initiate the divorce or beat their wives.

I can think very little of the opposite gender due to the fact that some of y'all are coming here spreading nonsense.

I have considered counseling, but I'm busy building my career since women like men with money.

Yes, American women are prone to filing for divorce more quickly than men. There's men who are like that too.

If I thought there was any point in posting, I would. Seem like a good excuse for a mysoginist rant to me. The OP is probably just angry because his mom wants him to move out of her basement
