    can't believe people are upvoting you. Some of these women cannot fight for their own rights they're not given the right to speak out. I don't see why western countries can't support them
    Which kind of women can't fight for their rights or don't have the right to speak out in western countries? Idk what you're talking about tbh

    women are respected in developed countries just as much as men! what more do they want!?
    I really don't know what they're fighting for, to be honest. I am very grateful for what women have done in the past to get their rights and if I existed at that time I would also be a feminist, because then there was a very legitimate reason to be. But now, the only countries that desperately need more 'feminists'/women speaking up are places like the Middle East, for example. More powerful females are very much needed in these countries.

    Instead of throwing childish insults,form a proper and logical argument.You did not bother to read what I said after this,so kindly do yourself a favor and read my second post.
    You said feminism is equilavent to stage 4 cancer. As someone who's uncle recently died from Stage 4 cancer I have every right to rebuff your idiocy

    I agree, but tbh, I don't see how the world needs feminism now anyway.
    There are still lots of inequalities, like in the wage gap and social views.

    Edit: Surely you can't argue that countries like Saudi Arabia don't need feminism?

    You completely dodged my question and are now playing the victim.Did you even read my second post?Ok,here I go:I think that modern feminsm is cancer,not feminism in general.
    Also,stop getting triggered over other peoples opinions.You seem like the type of person to get offended by immaterial things like a girl not getting a lead role or a strong character in movies and then complaining about it on the internet.
    Wow, way to generalise. I don't care about movies or books if you've seen my past posts I actually think feminism should target women in countries where they have virtually no rights. So yeah you seem the type of person who thinks their opinions are above everyone elses. I don't care about third wave, I don't care if Jennifer Lawrence earns less than Leonardo Dicaprio, I just want equality for both sexes all over the world. And I'm sorry if I decided to take offence what seemed a heartless off-handed comment. Have you ever had stage 4 cancer or someone close to you?

    First of all,it's misogynistic.Secondly,what have I said that seemed misogynistic to you?huh.Thirdly,you keep dodging my question again and again despite me telling you to read my second post."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." I actually live in a third world country myself and the women here laugh at what modern day feminism has devolved into and how the third wave of feminists are so immature.I'm all about equality when it comes to both the genders,however,the only agenda that modern feminists strive for is making men look bad and gaining control over them.I repeat,feminism(not modern feminism) should be advocated in places where it is needed,not in the west where women already have all the rights and are still complaining that they are oppressed, while sitting around all day doing nothing.
    Also,stop getting triggered over a cancer joke.You know in which context I was using it.

    Like I said I don't care for modern feminism either. My parents are also from a poor country where it's by far not ideal for women to live there. I never said I supported third wave. As for you getting so bothered over a typo, you know nothing about me to question my intelligence. I made a joke considering your username and then you go ahead and assume that I'm a tyrannical man hating feminazi.

    When did I say that you are a "tyrannical man hating feminazi"?Your the one who's generalizing now.Hypocrite much?Also,you also got triggered by a joke made by me about cancer and attacked me first.I have every right to defend my self so I commented back.Moreover,regarding my question,I was referring to a post I made on the 2nd page of this thread,which you completely ignored despite me telling you to read it again and again.
    My business with you is finished.Now fu*k off.

    Maybe females in general just face more problems in the world and setbacks then men have you thought about. Men were never oppressed by their society for centuries, so their problems were dealt with accordingly. Not saying that they don't have problems, of course they do and I strive for equality for both sexes but people don't really put this into perspective.
    Across the world, women definitely have it worse. But the problem is that some people discriminate against heterosexual white men simply because they experienced priveledge in the past.

    This is a typical case of playing victim.

    Victimhood is now a platform for power.

    How does his comparing an issue to stage 4 cancer an attack on you because you have someone that has died of stage 4 cancer?

    If I say my exams are so difficult they are hurting my brain like migrain means I am insensitive or attacking someone that suffers from migraines?

    Please cut out this victimhood, 'it is offensive', snowflake crap.

    You mean the wage gap that co-exist with what feminism has done for men e.g non-existent.

    Modern feminism is actually so terrible. All it does is divides/creates conflict for absolutely no reason whatsoever. The world has enough problems so can you fvck off with your bs please.

    If you genuinely want to help women with no rights go to countries where women have no rights ffs.

    Ugh this actually really pisses me off.

    I'm not playing victim, S H I T for brains. It was just a highly insensitive thing to say I have every right to call him out on it. PEOPLE DIE FROM CANCER and comparing a socialist movement to it is just plain wrong. I'm not a special snowflake for saying so. I didn't say it was personally attacking me moron I said hey man that ****'s not cool and it's uncalled for. ****ING Internet trolls I swear if I could get through this computer screen
    Insensitive to whom, Ms Victim?

    Skipping breakfast and then saying at lunch "I am starving" means I am insensitive to those who are actually starving and can't get food, in your "victimhood" world.

    Are you not going to ask for an apology because "you find it offensive"?

    Cut the snowflake victimhood crap, honey.
