    Now that this thread has been declared FUBAR'ed, I have a single nonconstructive comment to make:

    You people are trying too hard.

    I'm not the biggest feminist... i believe in equal rights and all that jazz but Feminists tend to seem too extreme for me. My mother is a big feminist and i hate talking to her on some problems. I feel like since she IS a woman she can only see the problems towards women. I mean racisim is just as bad and maybe even moreso...

    feminists always seem to think that women are superior or atleast make it look that way... i view that as hypocritical and it annoys me. I'm sure thier are those who view them as completley equal but at this time i only met feminists who don't seem to.

    Descrimination is hurting and always has been hurting all the minorities.

    The thing I hate about this topic is how people tend to react to feminism as if it's this monolithic movement in which all the adherents feel strongly about ONLY feminist issues, and all feel the same about those. Sure, there are singleminded feminists. There are all kinds of feminists. It's a rich and beautiful tapestry, or whatever.

    As Ivy says below and I + others have said above, not all feminists are the same nor even all feminists look at the issues which effect women but also effect men + other ethnicities + other factors, including the environment. You've just generalised all of them by viewing them as one organism as badly as you think they appear to be so singleminded in uniform. Since you've said you've only met those kinds of feminists in real life, then you should say so instead of "feminists always seem" etc.

    Oh, and did you read all of the other posts highlighting all that I remarked? We pretty much came to a cease-fire, anyway.

    What are your thoughts on feminism? What kind of idealogies do you like/dislike?
    I'm rather indifferent to it.

    I don't really have any particular opinion, other than that it goes without saying that there should be gender equality. I'm a man, by the way.
    It makes sense to have equal pay and rights for equal competence, regardless of gender.

    I've heard some people say that feminism is irrelevant in modern society. What are your opinions on that?
    It's becoming less and less relevant.

    And lastly, I've heard people say that feminism has gotten to the point it opresses men. What are your opinions on that?
    Nonsense.

    Wow, I consider myself very egalitarian, but some of the comments in this thread are pretty offensive as a man.

    I mean, I am assuming these are examples of hyperbole here, but jeez. What the hell would make people say things like that?
