It seems like a lot of you guys are really pissed off at feminists.

To put it simply: Why? Is there something I'm not getting?

Women are still oppressed in many parts of the world (just look at the Middle East, for instance) and are often paid less than men in their jobs.

So what's wrong with standing up for equal rights?

Feminists are not interested in equal rights, they're interested in suppressing men under glorious dictatorship of the vagina.

Humanists are ok though.

Hating an entire gender is stupid.

there's a lot of misogynistic pigs on these fora who've become extremely bitter because no women want to put out for them. if it isn't already obvious from a lot of posting mannerisms there's a really profound phallocentrism on the boards as well. there's nothing wrong with feminism, and any post saying that is just the rationalizations of an ugly loser pouring his bitter words through the keyboard instead of getting in shape

From what I've seen, it's not about hating men so much as it is about standing up for women.

That's what I've seen, anyway

With any group there are assholes who are gonna come and be assholes in the name of something they don't fully grasp. I don't blind myself to the benefits or the negative qualities. I do support feminism and am proud to.

Most of what I've seen is biased hate, it's not that I hate the initial idea of Feminism I just hate how the majority of feminists portray it.

Now you can get a classy lady like Roseanne Barr who understands that fine line between opression, and hate. (Need I say it, classy. Watching that show is one of my guilty pleasures, something about 90's sitcoms always stuck with me.)

It's fine to want equal rights, and want to be seen as an equal. But it's another thing to blame ALL men; when most of us also want the same equal treatment for you, also. Think of it this way, during those Women's Rights movements there wasn't just WOMEN marching, there was a whole lot of Men supporting their Wives also. Sorry to break it to most feminists but the necessary evil isn't just men in general, it's the idiots in charge of everything. You really wanna get at their throats? Don't alienate a gender of which also supports your initial ideas.

Continue being a bitter cunt? Well then I don't feel bad for you if you're still objectified, and you're still made a fool of and no one respects you. Can't receive what you don't give, and if you don't like it well I know of a few Hooters where everyone will treat you JUST proper.

Equal rights for all human beings is my standing.

I can understand some people disliking so-called feminists who are sexist against men but some people just don't like seeing others stand up for something or take pride in themselves. Those people don't want us all on the same level. They want us to go down to their sad level.

PETA love animals and desire animals to have a nicer life. That sounds good. They do so by spreading hate and unfounded lies / altered truths towards zoos and even animal care homes and have been known to attack pet owners themselves claiming that humans are a scourge that should be wiped out.

Feminists are for better rights for females etc. And how do they go around doing that, what things do they claim and try to force....

Such groups are the same when it comes down to it even if one isn't as extreme as the other, they all want something good but have overly hate filled and vastly objective views which simply don't deserve any place in the world.

Feminists are especially bad when it comes to the ones that effectively want to make females the dominant sex and have more rights than males etc. As they are completely going against their own reason for existing as they clearly don't want equal rights they want to just change it around.

Nothing.

The "men are scum and should be annihilated" dogma makes up a minority of feminist groups.

Though retrospectively it has made me laugh on how much more peaceful the KKK has gotten over the years, they're adopting highways to cleanup and such... Interesting how such an intentionally hateful society could one-up something like the feminist society, I'd say it's time to take an example from them. No I don't mean hating multiple races, but I mean doing what you do in a more modest sense. Sure they hate pretty much every race that isn't them, but they take pride in everything around them at least.

Step. It. Up.

I think a lot of guys are actually confused about what feminism is actually.

If I just defend my sex about something I get called a feminist for it. Its that kind of attitude that makes me want to say fuck it to the male population but that would be over the top.

But yeah I understand that the men must die feminists are just in general not great people, but please don't let it undermine actual woman who are struggling to make a difference to the way they are treated by society. They do have a genuine case to fight.

Women are favored a lot more than men as long as liberals continue to take over the world like they have been.

Remember that women that got accused of a crime against her boyfriend/husband and went to prison? Me either.

No faults in defending your gender at all, then again don't blame -MALE- stupidity blame -HUMAN- stupidity. I don't blame females for someone cutting me off, I blame the person in front of me for not knowing how to drive.

To be honest we separate gender too much, humans are just initially stupid and childish (to most extents.) We either take things too seriously, or are too ignorant to fully understand something.

To be honest though you're a decent person (at least what I've observed in my time being here,) found it funny in one thread you said that you always feel stupid. At least you're cognitive of what you're doing wrong, think of the many people in the world that do the same thing and are blissfully unaware of their idiocy.

Think of your ability to recognize mistakes as a blessing, not a curse.

Men are more childish than women, and yet women understand children better than men do.

Never said there wasn't a difference, just said everyone's childish in their own ways.

Though it has to do with maternal nature, hormones, and a whole bunch of other gobbidly gook that I personally don't care to understand. If you're really interested in a full explanation talk to a Biologist, personally all I know is that though both genders are different there is no reason we can't be equal.

Personally I feel the double standard is retarded too, if we removed it being around them would be entirely less awkward (though honestly, I really don't follow MOST of the double standard.)

Chivalry's dead, let's just leave it at that.

There's a difference between fighting for equal rights and trying to undermine an entire gender and writing off any people within the middle ground as brainwashed.

Also, feminists back in the day definitely had the right idea fighting for equality, not "womens' rights". They went through a lot of bullshit for their cause, and it seems to me that many of them today (particularly Americans) tend to be imbeciles that don't even know what they stand for.

The only minorities that seem to be heavily favored is blacks. If I say "black guy" everyone around me will point at me screaming racist. If I say "spanish guy" or "asian guy" there's no problem.
