    Not Exactly

    I am not a feminist. Nor do I believe in the concept of equality. I do very much believe in women's contributions to every aspect of life, as much as I believe in men's counter contributions. The concept of equality is flawed in two areas. First, men and women are not the...

    "La FlèChe, Il A Besoin Pratique. La Cible Ne Fait Pas."

    That, in a nutshell, was how my grandfather justified the double standard, and why he reportedly took some of my uncles to the "red light" district in New Orleans, when he determined they were old enough. My mother, their sister, knew about it and complained to Grandmaman, who...

    Thank You To All The Anti-feminists

    I would like to say thank you to the men (and some women) who are anti-feminists whose biased, anti-female (not just anti-feminist) stories and comments, which express their desire to keep women repressed, dominated and controlled, will ensure that feminism will remain alive and...

    I think all women should have the right to do

    whatever they want whenever they want. As long as it's not hurting anyone or themselves. I think women should be able to speak their minds freely. Women: don't let men tell you what to do. Don't allow them to manipulate you and tell you what you should or shouldn't do. It's up...

    Hypocrisy And Pompous, Self-righteous Arrogance

    I keep seeing it over and over again. Some of the anti-feminists coming off so snotty, pompous, self-righteous and arrogant while they criticize, demean, and ridicule feminists for allegedly doing exactly what they continuously do themselves, but that we don't.  What is wrong...

    I absolutely abhor discrimination.

    Whether it's sexism, racism, homophobia, religious persecution, etc....I believe people should be judge based on their character, motives and abilities, and not by anything else

    It's sad and terrifying

    I have been in so many arguments with

    I believe that everyone should have equal rights

    and equal opportunities. Women are still judged all around the world and given less power. They are persecuted for the simplest of actions. Thats why I passively protest, no violence just honesty.

    There's feminists, then there's misandrists, people who don't like men and think women are superior. I am a feminist because I believe that men and women should have the same rights. People who don't believe that, please stop calling yourself a feminist, because you're not

    How Feminism Hurts Men

    I wonder is it a requirement to be female in

    order to be a feminist? If it is then I just support feminists and feminism because of my belief in equality. If it is not then I am a feminist for that reason.
