    ...without being guilt tripped...
    Women should do what they want with their armpit hair, either way there shouldn't be any attempt to guilt-trip them. You're the one telling women what is a 'no no'.

    It seems like the name "Women Against Feminism" is rather misleading. It gives the idea that they are entirely against feminism in any form, which is ridiculous. Fair enough being against the radical feminist movement but being against feminism in its true form? Nah.
    feminism in it's true form is just a women's me me me movement.

    I'm sure these girls support equality. Pretty sure everyone with a brain would make that assumption as well.

    Women can do whatever they want with their armpit hair. But the reason why 99% of women shave their armpit hair is because they know that hairy armpits are not attractive at all. Once women got the freedom to expose more of their bodies in public, they quickly started shaving their legs and armpits. No one forced them to do this, they did it on their own. Its a natural thing to want to appeal to the opposite sex.

    Stop making women feel guilty for wanting to be more attractive to the opposite sex.

    Armpit hair is not attractive on a woman:

    Wow the ignorance and idiocy never fails to astound me. These girls needed feminism (not radical feminism) or they would still be their husbands property, locked in the kitchen pushing countless babies out and not even being able to write those stupid cards because of being denied an education. Feminism is still needed widely as many countries have deplorable womens rights in 2014.

    Emphasis on the "In most poor countries" it's because their parents cant afford it, not because men in specific are preventing them from doing so.

    I do support equality. What he was saying was that "everyone with a brain" would make the assumption that these women standing up against feminism support equality (so clearly I am not one of those people with a brain), when I said I understand women not agreeing with radical feminism but I can't understand being against feminism altogether.

    Ye it would be great if western feminists cared about the women in 3rd world countries. To bad theres a very small number of them that actually work to help women in third world countries. Most of them are just trying to get more privileges in USA/UK etc.

    I should join them hehe, feminists are an embarrassment to women. What happened to the good old days where women would cook and clean and sit down and shut up when they were told to? Am I crazy being a woman and wanting to be like that?

    With regards to third world countries, I would like to see some woman's movement, not necessarily feminism.


    However, you forget the significance of these being third world countries. In many places, women and men having different roles (ie man hunts, protects, does the hard labour, women brings up the kids etc) is a simple necessity in order to survive. Women's rights movements are only really relevant in countries that are economically and technologically equipped for strict gender roles not to have to apply. There's hardly any point going to the tribes in Africa and saying their women need to be working etc lol.

    Frankly, I don't care if women call themselves feminists, equalists or dolphins, as long as we're all aiming for actual gender equality on both sides, it's a good thing in my eyes.

    So, one person's mind hasn't been changed = failure. Nonsense.

    This page has been gathering likes faster than Gangnam Style and is giving a voice to women who are horrified by the radicalism of the feminist movement. It will continue to grow and hopefully stem the tide of women throwing their futures away by becoming feminists.

    Can you explain exactly how my future has been thrown away? Or is that just a generalisation and conjecture?
