    How Has Feminism Failed?

    Let's start with the obvious. Feminism has to achieve equality with the pointing of a metaphorical gun. Policies, laws, minimum % of females on boards and company management, Et Cetera. Equality under threat of sanction is not equality. It is a totalitarian idea of "Submit, or...

    Men & Women Were Not Created Equal

    Modern feminism has evolved from being about women wanting equal rights to women wanting more rights than men. It's true. I used to be (and still am) a feminist. However, that does not mean I condone all the madness modern feminism promotes. In my humble opinion, women will...

    men face many problems. Paying attention to these problems will not only benefit men but also women. For example, men are much more likely to become criminal and to go to jail; in 2009, 93.2% of all US prisoners were men. Programs preventing boys to become criminal will make the...

    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.
