I'm a Feminist In the Sens...

I'm a feminist in the sense of "Women are equal in value to men". Actually I once heard a definition of feminism as "the radical concept that women are people too". I've never supported the anti-man stiff of the extremists. I believe that behaviour is inevitable (pendulum effect) but ultimately hurts the image of the feminist movement.

I guess I could be called a feminist in a sense also. However, I do not limit the belief in equal value to one sex, race, economical group, nationality. I probably could hide from the truth that females are still being abused through out the globe, but I am to much a realist not to see slave sex trade, females educated to seek marriage over education and careers, females paid less for same jobs, females educated to accept low level jobs, and etc.
The other issue is I am bias against women being in combat, I have lived this horror, I want to protect them from lost of limbs, death, and destruction of their soul with memories of the horrors of combat. I am not saying I would oppose their right to being part of the conflict, I will however not support it.

war is ugly. I wouldn't want anyone to go to war actually

When people talk badly about men, making them out to be monsters. I say, "Hey, men are people too and they also have feelings." What bugs me is that a lot of people don't see that men and women actually have a lot in common. To me they're not very different. I think society has put too much pressure on the two sexes to act a certain way. People should be free to be themselves and not obsess over gender stereotypes.
