    I am girl and i have not really researched on this whole concept of feminism but the ones i encounter on the internet make me want to really puke. Some of their views are pretty extreme. With what i see, i really feel so sorry for men. We are the ones oppressing them.

    What the hell have they done to receive some of the treatment they get from feminists. If they decide to have meninists(which they already have) some females are going to be really pissed off. I think what people like Emma Watson describe feminism as, is equal pay, maternity leaves, not firing women because they get pregnant,e.t.c which makes sense. But saying the cat calling is barbaric and so male and 'oh i can open this door by myself thank you very much' is pathetic.What do you guys think

    1) There's a complete difference between misandry and feminism. The radicalism you're describing is misandry.

    2) Most feminist movements advocate the equal rights for all genders, not just their own. Although you do get the ridiculous trans-exclusionaries but that's a rant for another day.

    3) Meninism is not a valid thing.

    4) Cat calling is barbaric. It sexualizes and objectifies women and this is one of the primary arguments in feminism.

    5) Poor attempt at trolling. And if not, please do your research. Feminists are not the hairy, man-hating lesbians we're misconceived to be!

    I don't see how catcalling is barbaric. I have seen women whistle and hoot and stare when a hot guy walks by. Isn't that going against what they preach. As a good find of mine said, the third wave feminism in the west HAS done more harm than good. Whatever research you want me to do about the true meaning of feminism, was dumped a long time a ago.
    If feminism is a valid thing, then TRUST me, Meninism should also be valid.

    This is very true, but not all women are feminists though, so they're not exactly going against what they preach if they don't preach it, are they? I personally find cat calling very crude and would never cat call a guy, gal or anyone in between.

    How do you know that the true meaning of feminism was dumped a long time ago if you haven't done any research? But I do (sort of) agree with the fact that Western feminism can do more harm than good, as many Western feminists are misandrists who do not appreciate the true meaning of feminism. I myself am an inter-sectional feminist who believes that feminism is a less needed advocation in Western society, but is needed more so on a international scale. This is because there are varying degrees of female oppression due to other factors (e.g. racism, cultural oppression, homophobia)

    Meninism is a bit silly. The basic message of general feminism is for equal rights for all genders, as I have said. There is no need for a meninist movement - men can identify as feminists just as much as women can.

    Poor attempt at trolling, remember that. I don't like that sort of thing. Which is the problem I have with most Tsrians. Dismiss your views because they don't agree with it. Don't even bother to argue constructively. Like one girl on a thread I made "Men want virgins to marry. Let me explain'' There was this girl who was so rude and called me a baby, a child still in primary school cause of my belief. Eva long...something. Not saying you are like that but some peoples replies to things I have posted have made me very sensitive on TSR

    Feminism is bull**** and always will be. Some of the things they do and most importantly, don't do, means I will never support it.

    I'm really sorry if I offended you, but you offended me by making this thread. Your argument was a bit uneducated (you admitted yourself that you hadn't done much research). Either way, I hope you appreciate my views.
