I See How Feminism Has Failed

Feminists Do Not Want Equality - They Want Power Through Special Treatment 312 People

    I'm sensing a bit of a divide on the issue of

    feminism. On one hand, feminism has done great things for this country and is spreading throughout the world in a positive way. In just 100 years, things have changed for women - we are able to be full citizens that compete well with men in many fields. We are educated...

    Feminism Is Not What It Used To Be...

    Before I get any strong women irritable at this statement, I will state for record that it is not the ideal of feminism that I dislike. Not at all, I agree that women need equal rights; I agree women were oppressed for years. Now, it’s those who call themselves feminists that...

    Hypocritical And Ultimately Counterproductive

    I feel sometimes "feminism" is confused with "gender equality" or "women's rights." I think few people would argue that women should not be able to vote, or should get paid less for the same job. However, the feminism today does not focus on clear injustices such as these...

    Because It Wanted The Wrong Things

    If feminism had stuck at equality for women, it might just have worked. But it didn't, it got subverted by women with other agendas such as fish and bicycles. Be careful what you wish for.

    Something To Consider
