From what I know about feminism, it appears to have been rather beneficial for women's rights. That being said, I can understand why some people wouldn't want to identify as feminist. Somehow along the way, the perception of it has been altered from 'the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes', to other, less savoury definitions. Hence some who declare that they are instead 'equalists'. Well, I can't say much more about the topic, other than I do believe that the ideology itself seems sound to me.

If you're a woman on the job who is talented and reliable you're going to get as much respect as a man who is equally talented and reliable. Assholes aside, there is a camaraderie to be had when waging war against matter and physics. Teamwork is accomplished by dropping what you're doing to lend a hand when called upon, and otherwise just trusting your partners to get it done themselves if not. You don't compete against each other, you compete against a common enemy, and like soldiers you want your coworkers to succeed at all times. You define your own worth by how resilient and talented you are, and you only learn resilience and talent through adversity. By holding women's hands you deny them the opportunity to make it on their own, and only make their first proverbial 'rock in the concrete' experience that much more shocking and discouraging. I used to hover over my female partner in encouraging support (the boss who got canned's replacement) but she never ended up learning anything, and resented me constantly having to rescue her- so I just stepped back and let her figure it out herself. Even if I knew she was going about things dead wrong, I let reality and physics teach her the deep unforgettable lessons I could never manage from the top-down.
It's one of the many reasons why millennials are so fucked. You can't hand someone self esteem. They have to earn it themselves. Remove legal barriers for equal pursuit. The rest will work itself out naturally. Changing hearts and minds through anything other than example is an impossible and wasted effort.

a new thread to discuss the different experiences of men and women in the workplace, academe, and the pursuit of related opportunities. Feel free to comment further there.I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie.

No woman will look like this without steroids, but Rousey is a great example of where a woman's body can go naturally. She's probably not at her maximum muscle weight, because boxing is cardio.
To be fair, the other member included supplements in his comment; I looked larger when drinking creatine shakes. I'm not certain whether he meant testosterone supplements or not. I don't know how those work with women. They seemed like a risky idea to me. I stopped taking supplements anyhow, because apparently the FDA doesn't regulate them. I still came out slightly larger than Rousey without supplements for two years.

MDP2525 and @that's not my name too. I did notice that a lot of the girls who lift are xSTPs (in my head, xSTP girls = badass ).
Yeah she's definitely not at her maximum. Apart from the powerlifters there's also the cross fitters, who get big because they do volume and intensity in combination with paleo. As far as supplements go, I take a vitamin/mineral supplement with protein, and that's it. I wouldn't count testosterone as a "supplement" because you don't get it nutritionally and it's banned. Creatine or beta-alanine can be obtained nutritionally from lean meat, so that's fine. But yeah, regulation for over-the-counters is crap. Often, what you're buying isn't what it says on the label - and there might be contamination. There are pre-workouts that contain banned stimulants as well, so it's important to be careful.. but as far as nutritional supplements go, unless you're talking about protein it shouldn't make that much of a difference for size."How badly did you have to break it to make it care about people so much?"
"That didn't break it. It's what made it work."

My definition of feminism is that it allows ladies to abuse their rights and violate the rights of others for their own means, who ever telling that feminsim is about equal they are lying to youIn order for society to survive, we must all pitch in and cooperate with one another, split the resources fairly.
If we get greedy, everything will fall apart
The main reason why there is no long peace is because everything is set and stone.
Another is that resources are limited and the ones who had the most goes bad because they are in control.
