Erm I don't know who Truckulent is, but my feeling was that it was rather a pettish response to some comments he'd read. Which has somehow got waaaay out of hand and settled into the familiar anti-feminist cliche fest. Not very interesting really which is why I've left it now.

I can't bear to reply to larry any more, I get bad vibes from the man.

I will abandon it too, it gets very very tiresome and embarrassing to see how, moderately articulate, women can completely dismiss feminism and continue to spew the media's angle on feminism. Seems to me that they are very misguided.

As for the OP I agree with Elephants.

I think Truckulent's aim was to stir it up! Which he succeeded in doing. I was also saddened by the number of people who were making digs at the Relationship section about crying abuse. Not only do people have probelms with recognising and saying the word feminism, it seems they also have a problem recognising and saying abuse. I was following it last night and just felt a bit saddened by it all.

I do wish criticism of feminism could be a bit <struggles for polite word>, better thought out.

It just seems to be a stream of 'gotcha' moments and tedious clichés and myths.

It is very creepy when people who have had stuff explained to them persist with 'no but feminists imply all men are rapists, really they do'.

shall we put together a special MN appropriate anti-feminist bingo?

'I have seen loads of threads in which....' something allegedly happens but when asked to link to these threads they can't.

"well if feminism is so good why hasn't it sorted out parental leave/DV/wet British summers?"

ElephantsAndMiasmas Tue 23-Nov-10 18:29:11

was that the one that said his mum liked germaine greer but didn't approve of the second wave?
