I visited some distant family a week ago. We were having a pleasant meal when one of the guys comments on the education system failing young men ( i have just started working in Education).
I agreed that this does seem to be the case. He then said "That is why I hate feminists". My mouth fell open. He launched into a tirade of vitriol against how all feminists are like Harriet Harman, they we all want men 'bred out' and that because men pay the most taxes and women need maternity leave, feminists are basically the downfall of Britain today.
I consider myself a feminist. I told him this. I also told him that in MY limited experience feminists did NOT believe in Eugenics and the control of male births and infanticide (as he implied). That mosts feminists just want not to be assaulted verbally about the size of their tits, given less pay for the same jobs and not to open a newspaper and and see yet more breasts.
This man is friendly, intelligent and works in a caring profession. Without a mentality like his we wouldn't need a feminist movement. I wish I knew more and then could have argued his points.
