    And when was feminism mentioned?
    Also, in western society, men are still more privileged than women. It's getting better, but we're not there yet.

    "check your privilege" is part of the sjw lexicon, of which feminism is at the centre.

    I'll admit, the check your priviledge thing was partly to see if you'd trip up
    But you have to understand that feminism is still needed. What about the wage gap? Or the commonness of pron featuring women being abused? The fact we still have a culture for blaming women for "getting raped"? Common use of the words "*****" and "pussy" to imply weakness? I can go on...

    you mean that "gap" that is based on the free choices of women, not based on men and women in the same job but men and women in general? does that "gap" account for women preferring to work part time, more social hours, take more or longer holidays, being less assertive for promotions, etc? it's basically a gap that makes sense and is not based on sexual discrimination - if women are to be fully economically equal to men then they apparently aren't allowed to make free choices?

    Or the commonness of pron featuring women being abused?
    oh, what, you mean fiction?
    also, I don't even know what you mean by "abused" - are women in "pron" not allowed kinks? are they not allowed free choices again? you sound as if you're basically treating women as children who can't look after themselves or make choices in their own interests! if women didn't want to be in "pron" then they wouldn't be involved in it, so what's the problem? female ignorance? wow, how feminist

    The fact we still have a culture for blaming women for "getting raped"?
    that's nonsense! I can't even name one person who would legitimately blame a woman for being raped! you're just lying now, or at least reading the script of feminism!

    Common use of the words "*****" and "pussy" to imply weakness? I can go on...
    what about "****", "****", etc, to imply negativity?!
    also, women mostly *are* weaker than men - is that not a fact?!

    I think the point that needs to be taken away by everyone who sees the term 'SJW' as an insult, is to be damn grateful for all the lucky breaks you got at birth.
