    I thought most of the people on here are often quite intelligent but honestly, as a girl, some of the stuff I read scares me.

    In the past week I've read threads such as 'men paying for sex is the fault of women for not giving out enough', 'feminism needs to be abolished', 'i'd hate to be a women as it's the weaker sex', 'girls deceive behind make up and then get boys to marry them', 'women are getting progressively uglier'.

    I'm not trying to criticise every user on TSR, but honestly, is this the view of most boys? Because if it is it really worries me? Or am I just reading the most ridiculous threads?

    Feminism has become really an ugly movement. They do not have one set goal or ideal. Some "wings" of feminism are worryingly radical to extremes that call for male eradication. This worries men as there is no central feminist group that speaks for the movement. So it sends out mixed messages.

    Some people will say that is just one person saying some nasty things. However it is not just one person, there is plenty of these so called feminists spreading what can only be described as hate speech.

    Now why would any male get behind an organisation which allows people to preach this under the guise of feminism?

    There are some very valid point brought up from feminism, however they do not have one set goal for the benefit of all.

    People on the internet are either the nicest people ever, or the most horrible people ever. The thing is, the people who are horrible will most likely not say these things in real life!

    I agree with all the anti feminist threads, feminism as a movement rather than a definition shouldn't be relevant in western society anymore.

    The rest sound like troll threads

    Except for the feminist thing, all the comments you mentioned are provocative and intended to get a rise out of people. Those comments don't really represent the majority view of TSR users.

    But certainly lots of TSR users are anti-feminist, as they regard western feminism as redundant and frivolous.

    I've been on TSR under different accounts since 2009, and there has most definitely been a rise in strange, misogynistic teenage boys on here. I don't really understand it but there way go.

    Yeah but the anti-feminism on TSR is actually a hell of a lot louder than the feminism....The anti-feminist threads massively outweigh the feminist ones, I really fail to see the point. Feminism effects none of our daily lives, if you all think it's a non issue then why whine about it all the time?

    Don't get it.

    Don't know for sure, but this might correlate with the rise of the new age feminists who keep pushing some ****ing ridiculous ideas and theories.

    Theories? :lolwut:


    Rubbish, outside of TSR I barely ever hear about feminism. But on here, the anti-feminism threads keep coming and coming. You all need to find a new interest, a relevant one.

    I am in the in-between.

    I have been laid enough that I don't feel vengeful towards women kind, but not enough that I see them as objects

    I personally don't whine about it all that much, some guys *cough* drake10 *cough* jamieTT are practically obsessed with feminism, I do get fired up when I see sexist double standards and people not following logic when making judgements about the opposite sex, something tumblr feminists seem to do all the time.

    I don't think ''Feminism effects none of our daily lives'' is entirely accurate, sometimes it will lead to unfair convictions or people pretending to be victimised when they are in fact not (re:radical feminists)

    Articles and papers are littered with feminism crap. Just a few days ago there was one on the guardian about how men are the weaker sex and that provoked some anti-feminism here. It goes back for quite a while actually - last year I remember a period where there was as much talk about feminism as Islam in D&CA, and there were some truly ridiculous claims being made, like how that last of us game was sexist (just an example that stuck to my head) lolwut.

    There are a couple of notable TSR members who are quite, well, unwavering with their very pro-feminism views. I won't name names, but they have definitely played a part in provoking some of the responses.

    Some of are obviously trolls, but I don't disagree with some anti-feminist sentiments. By definition, clearly every sane and sensible person agrees with feminism. But this is not what it has become. It is now a label that has been hijacked by the extreme, who are the ones airing their views on the media.

    Note this is not the same as anti-female.
