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?

Am I only allegedly a person?

"Feminists are allegedly people"

Nope, I am definitely a person.

Your punctuation and your argument are both a bit rubbish :)

ImNotBloody14 · 16/08/2013 13:44

I thought feminists were a type of fish? Confused

Feminism (n) the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of equality of the sexes. The Oxford English Dictionary.

Oh, you again.

AnyFucker · 16/08/2013 13:45

I know what I would call you sunshine Wink

RippingYarns · 16/08/2013 13:47

because to me an equalist only strives for women to have rights equal to a mans rights, implying that what a man has is the benchmark, that you cannot better what a man has

can't believe i'm engaging here

'Feminists are allegedly people'

That's my favourite bit. I know it's quoted out of context serve my own sinister agenda, I know it makes no sense, but that's the way we roll here on FWR these days, since Organic came to play

Sheshelob · 16/08/2013 13:50

Oh, Organic. The thinking lizard's crumpet. Back for more wimmin baiting.

You've changed my life with all your lolling and thinking and tenuous grasp of basic grammatical rules.

I want to hear more about YOU. What do you do when you aren't being a pretty rubbish troll? Sudoku? Zumba?

Bunnylion · 16/08/2013 13:51

Why isn't anyone here taking this seriously?

Don't you know that men are not as stupid as what the feminists think they are.

Before we get into the race, religion, sexuality etc of a person we have their sex. Feminists fight for equality of the sexes. Ideally once that happens everything falls into place.

That is how I see it. I don't need to declare myself an "equalist" because being a feminist (to me) means fighting for a basic human right at a biological level.

That may not be how others see it but it is like that for me.

Sheshelob · 16/08/2013 13:56

Oi, oi, saveloy!
Secretswitch · 16/08/2013 13:57

Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question as my Rockefeller feminist funding has somehow failed to arrive.

Sheshelob · 16/08/2013 13:58

Alas, there is no point, LWW. Organic has just completed Year 7 Trolling and is trying it out for size. I fear he may need to spend less time staring at his David Icke poster and more time doing his homework.

Sheshelob · 16/08/2013 13:59

Um, I may have received your wheelbarrow of riches, actually, secret. It came with a charming little nutcracker and man-mincer. Quite darling.

greenhill · 16/08/2013 14:01

'allegedly people' Grin

I wish I could take this seriously but I've seen the Rockefeller thread

Which man would I want to be equal to though? A Rockefeller with all his space lizard money and plans for world domination through the use of Feminist Iluminati Freemasons? You, Organic?

My poor female mind couldn't possibly guess.

I do like kittens though.

Boosterseat · 16/08/2013 14:09

If feminists believe in equality, why don't they call themselves equalists?

Erm..because that's not what the Rockefellers named us?

Try this thread Enlightening

TheVermiciousKnid · 16/08/2013 14:09

Ah yes, more 100% organic BS. Lovely.

I like kittens too, CaptChaos. But I couldn't eat a whole one.

Yes, but wearing lizard, of course, and plotting the end of the world. But luckily, Organic has a lever thingy that can open a trap door and make all the feminists plop into hell and the men can get their willies back because all the horrid feminists did steal them and then refuse to do the washing up because a man lizard called Rockefeller told them not to.

Sheshelob, oh just keep it. I have no time for this feminist nonsense as I am giving my darling husband sexy time whilst baking a quiche!
Buffy, I fear OP might faint dead away if confronted by your man-mincer. He has only just started on the Feminists, the Gays and Jews can't be far behind..
