[QUOTE=“Medvekoma, post: 233547, member: 1394”]I cannot agree with an ideology when the most loud representatives keep calling me an aggressive, testosterone driven rapist.
Genders are not, have not been and will never be equal. We do require to provide role models for our society to function. However, in no term is one better than the other, and therefore all laws should be purely based on rationality and logic, and not gender prejudices. No gender identity shall be forced, but the one matching biological sex should be encouraged to keep on social progress (reproduction).
I don’t think there is a difference in salary, I attribute that to the fact that due to our role models, males often choose a worse but better paying job while women choose what they want to do.
I don’t think there is female oppression or objectifying, other than what females do to themselves. I think the whole beauty industry is solely driven by female ego.
I however think that rape and abuse is a serious problem, and we should do everything to prevent them from happening. This applies to the not-as-highlighted issue of psychological abuse too, which is often committed by women, and males are too ashamed to seek help.
And the last thing:
I think men should be able to request abortion instead of being forced into paying child care if a female lures them into condomless sex with lies of birth control. I think women should also be held responsible for drunken, consensual sex. And I think that any rape case should be bound to secrecy until evidence is provided / found to defend the accused from the media in case of a false accusation.[/QUOTE]
I must say I agree with most of this, and that it’s a good stance to have on the topic.
Feminism is overused, abused and poisoned to the point where anyone defending it is looked down upon, which says a lot on how bad it really is. When you fight for equality, it won’t help using an ideology most people relate to the feminazis that are very apparent in media and elsewhere. Sure, you could argue for trying to clean up misconceptions of it (much like say, communists do, since most people don’t [I]really[/I] know what it is), but wouldn’t it be better to just use another name, or simply not label yourself as anything?
In my case, I treat people equally since I don’t see any need to differentiate behaviour depending on race, sex, etc. I don’t really [I]need[/I] a label to do this. After all, actions speak louder than words.
