do men fear feminism?Watch
Why do feminists fear MRAs? Don't you want men to be treated equitably?
Note that I'm not technically an MRA, but I'm hoping you get the point I'm trying to make.
modern/radical feminism is like socialism - it doesn't treat men and women, within its ideology, with equality, but rather, it gives women a superficial and patronising kind of equality of outcome by taking the rights of men and giving more rights to women because they can't manually achieve equality in society through their own efforts apparently
also, worst of all, there are *so* many things that damage men in society, such as a higher retirement age, less maternity leave, higher prison sentences, male infant unnecessarily circumcision, men not having any reproductive rights (e.g. women can legally trick men into impregnating them and then they can leave them for another person, but the man would still have to pay for the child he never wanted to have, etc) - literally, does page 3 matter more than most of these former mens issues? no - page 3 is a non-issue - women consent to being page 3 models, while no man (or boy) is going to consent to being mutilated, legally abused or manipulated. feminism is pathetic.
if it was in the middle east - fair enough, I see the logic of that. but in the western world, I make no exaggeration in saying that women are the most privileged group in society. they have gained more rights but they still, for example, expect men to pay for them in a relationship (and other such examples); if you want equal pay (which you already get!), how do we men still have to contribute more financially in a relationship culturally?! again, this makes page 3 look like NOTHING.
If if not then men won't fear it but will still loathe it, as all non feminists should.
surely the only kind of equality between these days is to the disadvantage of men though so surely calling this "feminism" is awkward as hell?
Use of State force backed by a culture of totalitarian political correctness in order to "achieve" equality of outcome between the sexes is very reasonable to fear. Unless, of course, one is a Marxist.
I don't fear feminism, it's just entirely unnecessary in modern Britain. They don't want to be equal because they're already receiving so many benefits we aren't. They want to pick and choose the good things about being a man and say f*ck that to the bad things.
I point you to Norah Vincent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norah_Vincent), a woman who disguised herself as and lived the life of a man for 18 months. She did everything, got a job, dated, social interactions etc all as a man. At the end of it she spiralled into depression and said that she'd never been more happy to be a woman in her life. She said men have just as many problems as women except they're not treated with any kind of respect.
I suspect most women would break down if they were thrown into life as a man. No one is there to look out for you, no one cares about you, you're expendable in modern society. Your problems aren't taken seriously, but honestly we don't care. We just get on with it and build the modern world, enabling these women to sit there and complain about how hard their life is. The worst part is no one corrects them. We just let them throw tantrums and continue to put up with their crap, because we want to f*ck them
There are plenty of examples of feminism going beyond equality and pushing into a very radical movement which does not want equality. There is a very fine line.
