I am not a feminist and never will be one. They are no better than men except for the sexual abuse part. Some of the most horrible people I've met were women. I am a humanist.
So women don't need advocates for equality?
Yes, they do if they are being denied a basic right but that doesnt mean it has to come from a sensibility that women have to wage wars against men and all men are bad. It should come from the sensibility that we are all human beings and we should be treated as equals. And women alone don't have to be advocates of gender equality. In many countries men have actually been on the forefront to fight for women's rights.
I don't see where this idea of feminism is women waging war against men and all men are bad comes from. Do you watch Fox News or something?
This is my opinion and I don't feel the need to share what news channel I watch with you. I can see from the way you attack people and gauge how indecent you are that you call someone an idiot on a public forum. As a human being who chooses to talk to individuals capable of arguing without attacking someone's intelligence I think you are not worth responding to.
I think the kind of feminists you're talking about are the ignorant ones, you know the ones that are focusing on stupid priorities, like hating on men, treating men like ****...<br />
I'm a feminist, and my concern is women's rights, I'm always concerned about the bigger stuff. Like "Victim Blaming", "Oppressing Women", "Violence Against Women", "Rape" (because many women who are victims of rape, do not get their rights some are blamed, others are ignored). Also honor killing.
Feminist aren't realistic about things
yus lol i always watch what i do so i don't merely agree with that part
Course women couldn't vote,own property,inherit property,and were the belonging of one male,or another,before some level headed woman demanded change..
Keyword "couldn't". Things are obviously different here in 2014.
I think you are characterizing feminists as a homogenous group. They may or may not be represented by NOW,or the authors who purport to talk for them,but they all believe in equality,and there is still much work to be done,ie,domestic violence,rape,etc.
A huge amount of work yet to be done.
Which feminists claim women shouldn't be wary of such things?
Well the blame is completely on whomever spiked the drink but I've never heard feminists actively campaigning that women shouldn't take precautions.
You're an idiot then. The point being made is that we should be putting just as much, if not more, effort into teaching men about appropriate behaviour as we teach women to be cautious. Fair point as far as I'm concerned.
As I said you're an idiot.
Almost definitely you're a Christian and a conservative.
I would like to know what does being a Christian have to do with nay of this? With that tweet, it's like saying we shouldn't have teach our children stranger danger and men shouldn't kidnap. As if men don't know not to kidnap...they don't care! With people like this in the world we have to take precautions. Us saying "Men shouldn't rape!", "Men shouldn't drug!", isn't gonna stop them, us making it harder for them to do so will make a much bigger impact.
You must be dumbarse Christian as well. That tweet isn't suggesting in anyway whatsoever that women shouldn't be cautious. It's questioning what we prioritise in the way of education.
And in regards to what has being a Christian got to do with it. Christianity has always put women below men. Many more fundamentalist Christian sects believe women should be subservient to men. So I mostly see this silly backlash against feminism by women who have been brought up with this belief.
She clearly said "instead" as if we shouldn't be taught to be cautious and we should teach these sickos not the spike drinks. We all know they shouldn't spike drinks! They know they shouldn't! It's something you should already know! It really shouldn't have to be taught, and if it was... some will still do it because that is what they want to do! This situation isn't putting females below men! LOL! What makes you think this?
The point was about education not about actions. Attitudes towards women shouldn't be taught? Men shouldn't be taught to respect women?
Attitudes towards women should be taught, yes. Men should be taught to not disrespect woman, yes. I won't say they should be taught to respect anyone because you can choose who you want to respect. Just because you respect someone doesn't mean you have to disrespect them. I don't think men should NEED to be taught "Don't drug people's drinks :)", It's something you kinda know is wrong. Like I said, it's like saying we shouldn't teach the buddy system or stranger danger because people shouldn't kidnap. It makes no sense. These people choose to disrespect females, it's not because they don't know how to respect them.
I think the point here is the emphasis on education. Do we blame the driver who is hit by another driver who is drunk and running a red light? No, we don't. We try and teach people not to drink drive. I think it would be a great idea to have relatively young kids discuss drink spiking and the effects it can have on the woman. We should be discussing with and educating our kids about attitudes towards women.
Avoiding my example again? I think that is because in your scenario, we only have one person really being irresponsible. Why would be blame the person hit? It's clear who was the irresponsible one in that scenario. The person hit had really no part in why he was hit. It's a cause and effect thing. You leave your drink unattended (irresponsible), it may get spiked. Wow, do you sincerely think discussing spike drinking with young children will make a HUGE impact rather than informing females to take precautions (stuff they should already know). People are gonna disrespect who they want whether they know it's wrong or not.
I honestly don't see us seeing eye to eye on this so I guess we will just agree to disagree :)
I don't think the woman is in anyway whatsoever to blame for someone spiking her drink.
As I said you're probably another dumbarse Christian.
LOL! Goodbye. You are pathetic.
You are though aren't you? ;)
True, who would not love to be able to be an a$$ and no one would be able to hit you?
well like anything that would somebody beat up.
