    I Just Don'T Understand

    I have very weird views in life. I know. But one thing that's never been weird is knowing I believe in sex equality, and that no man (or woman for that matter) can tell me to do something and make it me do it. But looking at some of the groups who call themselves "submissive...

    You can be feminist AND not hate men in this

    generation's definition of "Feminism"? 2014 has shocked me so far.

    Given That I'm A Man, And Gay ...

    ... it would be very strange if I did hate men.BtW, I do think it very strange for any rational man who's not a hidebound conservative NOT to be a feminist.

    A true feminist does not hate men

    and believes in equal rights for women. This group is sadly mistaken.

    Trite Old Habit

      I returned to college after 19 years of being a wife and mother. I went to learn, not to get a career or because I felt any pressure to go. I selected classes that I found interesting and enlightening, so I took Women’s History. I have to say that the class really...

    I'm a feminist but a lot are way to pushy sorry

    lacy green but you have to be tactful when creating change. Pretty annoying also when they blame "man" for everything when it's both men and women fault but what ever it's life.

    Certainly

    There is nothing wrong with men.  Similarly, there is nothing wrong with women.  The reasoning for my feminism is the fact that women are often viewed as the weaker gender.  Maybe that is true in another person's eyes, but that possible fact (which cannot be proven) can never...

    I Don't Hate Men, I Just Hate It When They Tell Me What I Can Or Can't Do

    It wasn't until recently that I realized that I was a feminist. It happened when I was riding home with my brother (can't remember if it was after karate or after play practice) we were having the usual argument that we sometimes get into where he always says "Women should just...

    Feminism Means Equality!

    When did feminism become such a loathsome and vile concept?? I have always believed that it simply means to believe in gender equality, that ones destiny should not be shaped by gender but by choice, and that females are entitled to the same human rights and freedoms as males. I...

    What Is A Feminist?

    I believe being a feminist is being someone who pursues equality of genders (correct me if I'm wrong). I am so sick of people telling me the feminist theory is a lie, and I am also sick of "feminists" who are trying to "gain control" rather than search for equality. I've run into...

    I am not surprised that the way some choose to

    shoot down feminism is by conjuring up the idea that it's about hating men. That's not much of a jump from Hitler saying Jewish people were trying to enslave the rest of the world. Or highly conservative Republicans saying homosexuals are pedophiles. *Don't get in your...

    If you are a feminist

    and you don't hate men then may I suggest that you take a good long look at the movement. Look at the people in charge. Look at the rivers of money and who is benefitting. If you are really an egalitarian and you don't hate men, the responsibility is on YOU to ensure that the...

    Never Have!

    I am all for womens rights, but not for man hating. Or hating of any kind to be honest. I believe that people can be very extreme about their feminist beliefs. Fighting for your rights as a woman, should not mean hating men.

    Feminist Of Variety

    I am  currently a Gender and Women's Studies major and the courses that I am taking have really played a role in determing how I see myself, as a woman, with respect to men. I do realize that a lot of the oppression is due to patriarchy as well as this system of oppression...

    My Two Cents

    Men Need To Succeed

    There are actually a lot of things I admire about the male mind-set, and want to emulate. For example, men define themselves by what they do, who they are, and how much they make. Men need to be DOING something, whether it's racing a car, flying a plane, building something...

    The problem for me is this: In general,

    women care for men & children, whether we know them or not. But it is generally accepted that women & children should feel unsafe in the company of strange men. The "some" bad men sure seems like a lot when we are too afraid to go out at night or to let our kids play outside. I...
