Feminism!


The word "Feminism" has always caused me to cringe.  I have no problem with equal pay for equal work and a woman's right to vote but what I've mostly witnessed is "Special Rights" during this "Feminist" movement since the 60's.

Truth be known, when it comes down to it, I mostly get upset when I think about all the asshole stupid men who have pushed women into "Feminism".  If men had been treating women respectfully and not like chattel in the past we wouldn't have such a division today.

Personally, I've spoken to so many women who call themselves Feminists and seem to hate men that the word Feminist, for me, is the same as "Nazi".  I know that seems harsh but that's been 40 years in the making.  I still try to be objective when I talk with someone claiming to be a Feminist because even in Feminism there are a multitude of definitions.

My wife has strengths and weakness and I have strengths and weakness.  I get teary eyed when I listen to music that moves my heart and she doesn't.  Am I weak and is she strong?  Should she be the one getting teary eyed?

Well, anyway I had to put in my 2 cents about it.  It's been one of those weeks.

  2. I'm a woman and I agree with everything you have said! I am not a feminist because of the negative thoughts that word evokes for me.

  3. Feminism is a radical reaction to 19th century Victorian patriarchy. It has two parts that are usually hidden from public view. One is lesbianism. The other is Marxism. Both are taught in hardcore women's studies.
