    Because there are still many countries that treat women like **** and their rights are next to nothing?
    Well it's those countries that need feminists then not western countries where women already have their rights

    that's great, however as a movement that apparently stands for 'equality' what has it ever done... for men?
    Well when it began, the ain was to get women equal to men, making everyone equal, not going to make everyone equal if you give men even more stuff

    Such a western-centric view. The entire world isn't like the US/Europe lol. there are still many women around the world trapped in patriarchal societies.

    Also are you one of those dudes who watch like one video of a rad fem and think "wow, that's like all of them! all rad fems are the majority!"
    oh, ok, you're a troll, you can't think of any valid points, so you resort to insults.

    if you were to actually think for once, you would work out that I am actually comparing the work that feminism has done for men and women, and you would see they are massively unequal.
    Yes they're massively unequal because men already had it "better" than women did at its conception. Like do you really think that it should promote men equally to women, even though women are the group that has less privileges??????

    Well they don't, they already are seen as the superior sex and could do pretty much anything where as women were restricted by society

    feminism was great a few decades ago, but in modern times, it is useless, stupid and sexist. but of course, no one can say anything bad about feminism before its crazy members shout at you and say you're the one that's sexist.
    Totally agreed man.Also,to the dude above,I was referring to modern day feminism as stage 4 cancer.Feminism should be advocated in areas where it is actually needed,where women are actually oppressed,and not in the west where most women are abusing the power of this movement for their own personal agenda.

    That's a bit like asking what a movement pushing for economic equality has ever done for rich people.

    And thats a perfectly acceptable answer that would get you top marks in your coursework, i disagree mainly on the principle that men are stastically more likely to get top jobs but even that is being solved arguably from feminism and the fact that there are still countries with terrible womens rights

    Its done many great things for society in the past, debateable if we need it now, to completly disregard the good is foolish

    not necessarily, what is useless and detrimental to society should be discarded, no matter how 'good' it was in its time.
