globally yes- In the UK/ western world-not so much. I support the key principles of feminism but parts of it have gone too far (e.g being pinched on the ass is sexual assault) and the twitter activism is a bit tiring. Feminist need to look outside of there (somewhat depleted) list of issues at home and campaign for real issues of gender equality on a global scale including and end to FGM and rights for women in the developing (and eastern) world.
I'm a feminist but radicals disgust me.
Same here! Radicality is never really pleasant in any case
There's give and take with regards to idiocy concerning how the "other gender" behaves. OMG, so many threads on here are so ridiculous.
Like, do girls really masturbate?
Do guys actually get infatuated by girls or do they just **** anything that walks emotionlessly and not give a **** about romance?
I am happy to call myself a feminist in regard to the way women are treated in 'third world' or 'less developed countries'. However modern feminism or 'third wave feminism' in the U.K is just nonsense and often involves girls victimizing themselves for no good reason.
I have so many successful female friends, colleagues and family members who have achieved such great things and are independent strong women. These women haven't even mentioned feminism they just get on with it! Yet I find feminists more than ever want to blame something or someone else for their failings. The reason they didn't get that job was because women are not equal or underrepresented in the workplace etc. Whereas real women just get on with it and lead lives as successful and fulfilling and often more successful and fulfilling than many men with no complaint.
