When its equality could have served as an angelic host?
Where has it's “message” gone, and who has it saved?
Besides women, has it left others in their early graves?
I looked for it when children clawed at my feet,
hungry and sickly, they looked at me for meat.
I searched high and low when I passed through asylums,
and I half expected feminist to be campaigning beside them.
But to my dismay I figured they were all at Planned Parenthood,
as the state of children or mentally ill had nothing to do with their womanhood.
So alas, I looked for feminism when I found a battered man,
who'd been beat by his wife, and ignored like a piece of rotten ham.
“Go to the shelter, it's just up the street,”
“It's only for women,” Sadly, said he.
Today was veterans day, thus I searched for feminist support,
yet I'm sure they were advocating for some unrightful divorce.
I wondered where it was in 3rd world country,
Gays Betrayed FeminismBasically, the gay community is boycotting a hotel owned by a Sulten because that guy's country recently passed a law saying gay people can be stoned to death. One guy said that boycotting the hotel was pointless as it would have no impact on the country in question and only succeeds in hurting the people who work at the hotel. A feminist added that these gay people, instead of doing something they at least think is in their own interest, should be campaigning for feminism. Their failure to do so means that gay men are more misogynist than straight men.Gays Betrayed Feminism3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Overzealous FeminismA feminist, by definition, is one who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the genders. The word "feminist" could come from "femina," the Latin word for woman + "ist," meaning "doctrine, belief," thus "believing in women."Overzealous Feminism2 weeks ago in Philosophical More Like This
I go to an all girls school that has been around since 1874. It believes in educating and empowering girls to grow into confident, independent, compassionate, and socially conscious women. My mom and my aunt both went to this school, and I've been going to this school since I was fourteen and I am a senior in the high school now.
When I was a sophomore, my theology teacher -- who an ex-friend of mine had said is not a very good teacher -- decided to teach us a little feminism. She's a nun, and I don't want to mention her name, so we're just going to call her Sister. She meant to show us that in some advertisements and commercials, women are sexualized and objectified to sell the product. She proceeded to show us a video called Miss Repr

Feminism- N. A movement aimed at providing women equality in politics, social matters, economics and cultural aspects...
As of late, I've noticed a few things about this movement that really boggles my mind;
Treatment of women; a women is defined as an adult female; and an adult is somebody who is responsible, thinks and then takes action based on the situation and is capable of thought and gauging the outcomes and therefore able to also ACCEPT the consequences. Not overlook them, not ignore them, not place the blame on somebody else.
In fact, an adult is respectable; they SHOULD treat themselves with dignity, respect others, and basically try to better themselves and others when able. They should be able to see people as people; people are beings who have emotions, skills, talents, abilities and intelligence, granted this varies from person to person, but most of all, a person is not simply a physical object. They have depth, dreams, hopes and goals.
Back to women;

"First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have acces

Feminism and the Pay Gap DiscussionTo keep things short, I wanted to point out that there are 2 different versionsFeminism and the Pay Gap Discussion1 month ago in Settings More Like This
of the "pay gap" being discussed in society these days.
One is real, the other is feminist propaganda.
Pay Gap Version #1: Women are being PAID less. (Myth)
Pay Gap Version #2: Women are EARNING less. (Reality)
Aside from the fact we've had the "equal pay act" for a loooooooooong time now.
Women (as a gender) simply make different life choices than men and choose
to work less hours. (on average women work 4-6 hours a week less, than their
This is essentially the root of the "real" pay gap.
Of course, this begs the question: why would women choose to work less?
*Simply look around at society and you'll see some interesting things.
A women's income artificially decreases over the course of each of her pregnancies
due to working less hours overall.
*Her husband/boyfriend's income artifici
On Fringe FeminismIn a previous article (On Feminism, Rape Culture, and MR Activists), I explored my thoughts on feminism and some related issues. I was satisfied to have said my piece, and was content to leave the subject at that. However in the intervening months, whether by happenstance or by me subconsciously becoming more attentive to these matters, I seem to be running into and/or hearing more and more regarding feminists mired in controversy over their dishonesty, irrationality, and unethical statements and behavior. Many of you are I'm sure familiar with the various issues that have been cropping up, as well as the players involved, and I have little interest in rehashing or naming names here. In truth, most of you likely know much more than I do. This increased exposure to what I consider the fringe of feminism has however prompted me to revisit this topic one more time. I hope this is the last thing I write on this subject for a long while.On Fringe Feminism3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
