Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

Skeezy, I have one question only. What would you think of a woman who posted the following: Now as far as feminine gay men and trans straight cis men .. Heh.. As a woman I tend to ignore that category. I can only speak for myself but I am wary of them because of personal experience. While I am court...

Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

Are you calling being gay a lifestyle? Are you saying gay men dont lead a different lifestyle? For example its awkward when a gay guy in a car full of straight men hangs out of the window cat calling men. You are hypersexualizing and dehumanising gay men when you say that. If we reverse it, no reas...

Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

@Pikachu Some would call the double standard of protecting the what is considered to be the weaker sex honor, instead of sexism. It's sexism because the binary of weaker sex/stronger sex is not logical. What I mean by that is not that women are as strong as men on average, what I mean is that sex a...

Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

The point isn't that women don't want assistance when idiot dudes violently take advantage of the performance enhancing nature of their testosterone dominant endocrine system. The problem is that because "chivalry" is so strongly gendered, when a little man is being attacked by a big dude, chivalry ...

Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

By extreme the Op probably means more radical feminism that seeks the eradication of gender and capitalism and less liberal feminism.

The more accomplished the female character, the more violent the response.

I've noticed a disturbing trend of dudes reacting to female characters who get pushed and put over, by creating very violent scenarios. The stuff I have heard before. These include ripping their breasts off, grabbing them by the breasts and hurling them into rocks, cutting their heads off, dismember...

The only way to stop men from being so ready to whine and complain about everything is to take away their privilege. Show them that their privilege doesn't count. Don't let them use it.
