Jarlaxle, I would ask that you either quote me if you are referencing a post of mine, or, refrain from it all together. Your intellectual dishonesty in representing what I meant, by failing to share the broader context of my post, is once again another example of why I discontinued to engage in this shit show.
If you didn't understand my example, say so, but do not twist it to conclude that feminists such as myself are likening the issues currently affecting the average women in the West to that of black slaves in pre-civil war America. You sound ignorant and ridiculous, and it does nothing to prove your point. That's reaching.
My original response to your post:
I was addressing your point that the barrier to having "all hands on deck" (of engaging the opposite sex, men) in the feminist movement will remain as long as we use the term "feminism" because the word "female" is in there, and as evidenced in this thread, some men can't get beyond the word "female" to see the movement for what it is.
Thus, my response was to use the example of racism, and point out that racism against blacks can and should be fought be anyone, of any race, who feels that such racism is wrong. It is not a fight that only black people can or should fight, because it is being done to them. Even white people can fight for the cause, as well. Segregating into groups by race, in order to determine whether to fight against racism - that very act of "othering" is ridiculous. Akin to men refusing to be seen as aligned with the feminist movement just because the name only highlights "women".
How you concluded that that was evidence of my thinking that the plight of women in present-day Western society is akin to slaves, is beyond me. And begs the question about your reading comprehension. And/or your agenda.
