Feminism exposed

Feminism, as I understand it, is about equality. Feminists are allegedly people, predominantly women, who believe men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. This looks good on the surface, that men and women should have equality. But that is not the full story:

If feminists believe in equality, why don't they call themselves equalists? Calling yourself a feminist is implying that you are only focused on women's rights. I've never had a feminist answer this question. If you believe in equality, you should call yourself an equalist, not a feminist. Mothers, in family courts, have more rights than fathers. Yet I've never seen feminists upset or troubled by this. It seems that feminists only focus on women's rights and not men's. So, why not call yourself an equalist?

"I've never had a feminist answer this question."

That's because they're too busy laughing at you, petal.

Those cat cakes were well good.

Do you think if someone answered his question for him he's go away?

AnyFucker Fri 16-Aug-13 15:25:48

Ooh, curiouser and curipuser

HungryGeorge shock

Well well well.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Fri 16-Aug-13 15:49:12

Oh it's hungry george is it?

<checks out FB>

Morgause Fri 16-Aug-13 15:52:58

Aw. Bless.

Here's a little bit of cake for you cake.

TheVermiciousKnid Fri 16-Aug-13 16:00:29

Ah yes, a little googling is very illuminating.


Boosterseat Fri 16-Aug-13 16:04:15

Special cake for OP

CaptChaos Fri 16-Aug-13 16:38:35

Oh god, I have got female brain. While admiring kittens I have failed to have any clue what the Hungry George reference is about.

Maybe Organic is right and I am unintelligent.


Organic100 Fri 16-Aug-13 16:45:55

I'm still unsure who feminists hate more--men or women. They also seem to hate ladies, not just men.

Weegiemum Fri 16-Aug-13 16:48:41

I'm a feminist and I don't hate anyone.

My dh is a feminist too, so you probably don't like either of us much.

Boosterseat Fri 16-Aug-13 16:48:48

We don't hate men or women in general.
We hate ignorant pricks.
No gender requirement to be an idiot.

And we love Lizards,
and cats
and cakes

RippingYarns Fri 16-Aug-13 16:51:01

i don't hate men

i actually <whispers> love some shock

especially my feminist DH and DSs <proud>

Morgause Fri 16-Aug-13 16:51:22

We dislike fuckwits of either sex.

And you are such a one.

More cake?


SabrinaMulhollandJjones Fri 16-Aug-13 16:52:44

I just hate everyone. Except kittens.

Organic, will you be eating that cake ??

SinisterSal Fri 16-Aug-13 16:54:47

Thanks for this gem too - feminists hate men, women and also ladies.

MrsBucketxx Fri 16-Aug-13 16:55:29

Op word to the wise, dont try and fight the feminists on their own board.

not the brightest idea

colditz Fri 16-Aug-13 16:58:31

Oh god organic100, don't say that, I beg you. You are having such an effect on me with your frightening words, I will become all confused!

Maybe, perhaps... Could you? Could you mansplain it to me? So I can understand and be a real lady? Not like those yucky feminists who don't understand that if only they would do what you say, they'd be happy. All ladies are happy, aren't they, Organic100? And if I'm a good girl and do all the things nice men like you want me to do, I'll be a lady and I can be happy too.

I don't like being a feminist, it's too much for me to worry my pretty little head about.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Fri 16-Aug-13 17:04:14

Well it's been fun, but I'm going to prepare a nutritious meal for my family now....

<gasp> is that even allowed under the feminist charter?

Boosterseat Fri 16-Aug-13 17:06:36

It is Sabrina,as long as you make a cake too.

YoniTime Fri 16-Aug-13 17:07:08

Are ladies not women? Lol.
So if feminists are only allegedly people...what are they really? Lizards?

NicholasTeakozy Fri 16-Aug-13 17:18:21

This chap isn't quite the full shilling is he?

wordfactory Fri 16-Aug-13 17:38:23

organic we don't hate the menz!

I'm vair fond of my georgous husband and lovely son.

We just hate sexist pricks. Soz.

MrsGeologist Fri 16-Aug-13 18:03:02

Ladies are women wot know their place, innit.

CaptChaos Fri 16-Aug-13 18:04:13

Surely after a while your blood sugar returns to normal and you stop being able to blame misogyny on that?

Have some of the lovely Kitteh cake, maybe a nice hot, sweet brew

I'm sure if you ask nicely one of the laydeez will scurry along and make you one.

Sadly I can't, I am terribly busy knitting my DH and DSs x2 lovely 'I love feminism' jumpers so that they can be ready for those cold winter demonstrations.

They do like a lovely hand knitted jumper.
