We used to have a politics forum for subjects like this, but I think we decided Random Weirdos is where it goes because while feminism is kind of related, it is in a very minor way.

Your thesis is not concise. You're addressing several MAJOR topics in there that could all have their own threads.

Can you please break this down into a summary and then ask your question for discussion? I'm not really clear on what you are asking the reader. And if you have nothing to pose to the community here, then I'd rather not read your academic rants anymore.

I think what I'm saying is that there are better ways to go about social equality than via progressivism. If anything, progressivism should be ridiculed by feminists because it leads to consumerism and wars, but instead, feminists are still hiding behind it.

I'm asking if people agree or disagree and why.

You're assuming that he progessive/feminist combination is even true. I'm a feminist and do not support consumerism. Yes, I am still a consumer at the same time though, because I have to live within this system; but it doesn't mean I'm in favor of this system.

I don't really think your thesis is based in what's really happening. Sorry.
