    So I'm guessing from this that you think rape and patriarchy is acceptable?
    I don't think that anyone with low enough intelligence to believe we live in a patriarchy or a rape culture should really voice their opinion on anything whatsoever really

    So you don't believe in equal rights for women?
    What do you mean by equal rights? In what sense?

    But that is exactly what a real feminist is. This is pretty annoying, people cannot tell the difference between extremism and the real thing. People always say that feminists are misandrists or whatever but they're not. Misandrists are misandrists. Feminists are feminists and never shall the two meet.

    It's like when people say the Taliban are the true muslims, well no, they're not, they're extremists who overlook half of their own religious texts.
    So kindly remind me of the last time a group of feminists rallied in support of extending prison sentences for women? Or to increase mental health and suicide awareness for men? Or to increase workplace safety for men? Or to spend more money on research for male dominated diseases and cancers? Or stopping domestic violence against men?

    I can't recall such a thing ever happening in the history of humankind

    Also just noticed there's no option in the poll for a woman who wants to marry a female or non-male feminist.

    Equal pay for women, not just treated as maids, offered the same jobs as men and treated as equal to men

    And where have men ever done it for women? Oh that's right, never. It's a movement for the equality of women where it's due, not to bring about OVERALL equality of the sexes. It fights for equality in areas where men are already superior in terms of the rights they have. Mental Health and Suicide Awareness is an issue for both sexes. You don't focus solely on men. I don't believe that's a feminist movement anyway. Feminism focuses, to me, on equal pay, the ability to work in the same fields as men, eradicating stereotypes that women should stay in the kitchen and look after the children.

    I don't know what you're going on about here.

    So in other words, they only fight for women's issues. AKA, they don't fight for equality. Glad we cleared that up.

    If someone's going to make a poll they should have more than just options for straight people.

    No. They fight for issues where men already have the upper-hand, making women on the same level. So don't twist my words to suit your own ends.

    Men deserve equal rights and all of the same things women have but you're completely missing the point: men already had a tonne of things women didn't. The entire feminism movement was brought on because of the oppression of women. You need to actually look into what the initial focus of the Suffragettes and the feminist movement actually was, then perhaps you might understand it a lot better - you clearly speak from ignorance.

    Depends, if you mean an actual feminist that stands for equal rights then I wouldn't care.

    If you mean the average feminist that has hatred towards men in general and wants female liberties then no.

    I believe that men and women are different and therefore should be treated as such. Men and women compliment each other and therefore they are equal in that sense but they are not the same. We have to recognize the difference between men and women. The feminist movement does not believe in this.

    Finally, someone who realises that there is a big difference between the modern perception and the actual feminist ideology.

    But it does? It merely doesn't agree with how men can get paid more for doing the same job and all of those sorts of things.

    I do agree that men and women have their differences but you have to put feminism into context.

    Wait so your saying that women shouldn't be given equal pay even if they were doing the same job as the male ?

    So women being "objectified" in magazines is a more important social issue than 80% of suicides being male? Because feminists will shout about the former till everyone's ears bleed, and yet not give a single care about the latter.

    This is what you call a movement that cares about gender equality? Troll harder please.
