    You know what's funny? I have formed my own opinion. I used to be very anti-feminist, and I slowly changed my opinion based on my own observances.
    Your 'own' observations? :lol:

    All you did to prove there was a Gender Pay Gap was hand me a silly, easily discredited article which doesn't even question the other side of the coin - it's biased.


    You should have stayed anti-feminist.

    A society where men, and masculinity, are dominant.
    But women are dominant in some aspects of society, so is it really a patriarchy or an invisible "pressure".

    How do you plan on solving these issues then?
    How would you destroy the patriarchy?

    since a feminist is just someone who believes man and women should have equal rights aren't most of us?
    This is a logical fallacy which seemingly every young feminist employs to feel less insecure in their beliefs. Firstly, your definition does not account for every feminist. There are plenty who would not fit it and still have an equal claim to identifying as feminist. Secondly, feminism does not have a monopoly on the idea of gender equality. Simply describing yourself as a feminist does not clarify that you support some all-encompassing gender equality and disassociating oneself from feminism is not therefore opposed to the idea of gender equality - things are a little more complicated than that. To me and plenty of men and women, feminism is fundamentally flawed in such a way that it is ultimately only harmful to the state of real gender equality.

    So you're still a transphobic douchebag. Have fun being looked upon by society in thirty years in the same way we now look at racists in the 60s.

    By refusing to acknowledge trans people as their gender, you are prejudiced against them.

    Why should I care about your movement? What do you aim to bring to the table with it and what is your endgame? It's all well and good opposing this "Patriarchy" but when you've won what will you replace it with?

    Not meaning to sound rude here but these are questions nobody has ever answered to me.

    I already stated that I'm ill, and not currently feeling up to trawling the internet for a good source, then formatting it into a long post. But you just conveniently ignored that.

    You said "AMA", yet I thought one would be prepared to answer anything - which you're not.

    The first thing I want to make clear, is that rape culture is not a society where rape is considered A-OK. Rape culture refers to a culture in which factors of that culture either encourage, or don't discourage, people from raping. Things such as stating that women 'deserved it', or victim blaming. Things such as sexualization in non-sexual circumstances. Now I've explained that, I hope it's clear why I believe it exists.
