    i've only read one chapter from the female eunuch,

    over the mirror and tasting menstrual blood... you know,
    to emancipate. haha.

    i find her thoughts uncomfortable sometimes---outdated.
    her thing about the commune---sharing children and such.
    and her opposition about the pill. and her views on
    womankind... so i never got into it.

    but i wonder if there's a generational difference in reading it.
    i read it in 96? 97? so i was about 16 or 17. so that's 20plus
    years since it was first published.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,

    and begin slitting throats.

    Not a very substantial question; try asking for examples.

    Err....that's pretty much exactly what one means when they say "how do you KNOW this?"

    You know, evidence, proof, etc., etc.....

    No I don't, actually.

    It basically a subjective statement, rhetoric.
    It's entirely sufficient to say "both men and women are disadvantaged in different ways."
    As long as there exists some amount of prejudice against males, anyone who truly stands for equality shouldn't call themselves a "feminist".

    But, I'll bite...
    How do you compare?
    Literal number of disadvantages?
    Or do certain disadvantages get more weight than others?

    Cool The Natural Woman

    The Natural Woman will wipe your nose when you are allergic to something; and if it is her perfume you are allergic to, she will happily stop wearing it. If you are incapacitated, She will even go as far as picking the inside of your nose if you so desire. She enjoys going to the water park, where you and Her do naughty things in the wave pool where no one can see you. Not for the privacy, but for the stimulation of the waves; for She would not be ashamed to do the same things infront of the local theater or ontop of a large light fixture inside of a public area. The Natural Woman puts rare, tropical flora in Her hair, which is moisturized so that when you roll over onto her pillow, you feel as if you have been immersed in a wave of ecstasy. She will be your concubine through the most dire struggles, and when the time comes to dismiss Her forever, She holds you so dear that she is enthralled to leave you. She wears a mixture of coconut bras and seashells, which were forged by the ancient Hawaiian craftsmen and coveted by quartermasters world-round. When The Natural Woman farts, fragrant essences are expelled, which cause all life forms within the vicinity to be rejuvenated and polished as though they were from fresh from Eden. And instead of the normal sound that occurs when one releases gas, ambient sounds such as howler monkeys, crickets chirping, a cool breeze, or waterfall reverberates throughout the area and puts everyone at ease. Natural Woman only eats specific bodily fluids that come from you only, and she turns to stone momentarily if she eats anything else. If she eats someone else's bodily fluids, then she turns into a Gila Monster which is endangered, so she is bound to die lonely and covered with shingles. While Natural Woman has a sharp intellect, capable of perceiving and executing solutions to problems more readily than any other woman, she lacks self-awareness and therefore has no free will. In other words, she is like a puppy, which can be programed to do tasks in response to mere hand gesticulations.

    Ps- by asking me what a "natural" woman is, you are essentially asking me what a true woman is. A Scotsman is a Scotsman is a Scotsman.

    IMO the ideas and concepts of feminism benefit men as well as women. Allowing people to choose their own path rather than having their paths prescribed for them by their body parts benefits everyone. The reason it's called feminism is that historically women have been easily on the losing side of the equation. Things are closer to even now- I got to go to college, yay!- but it's still called feminism because the gains are relatively new and could be lost at any time, IMO. Still, it should (and does) benefit everyone for women to have agency and choice and power in a society, and for men to be allowed to choose to do traditionally female tasks. So I wouldn't be averse to changing the name of it. Just seems silly to focus on the name instead of looking at the ideas and concepts that underly it.
