Nice to see a reasonable argument from #occupywallstreet. How well spoken and sound. Tell me again why people should…
Calm down and take off your fedora. If you think men are oppressed in this society you are just as deluded as the capitalists that whine about “class warfare.” Feminism IS about equality.*
Now you can go fuck yourself.
(*except for anti-trans radical feminists who can also GTFO)
For true Equality, not based on gender or any other factor, please read:
As a man whose penis cannot reach his anus, I am unable to comply with your requests. I also do not own a fedora, and if that was meant to be some form of insult, it was rather sad. Feminists, or people who identify themselves as such, are rarely TRUE feminists, BECAUSE they believe in equality for all. Equality = Egalitarianism.
Read sometime, it’s good for the soul.
To think that a force for equality means giving equal attention to problems of those with privilege as those who are oppressed is to ignore the fact that those systemic inequalities exist to begin with. The fact of the matter is that cis-men hold privilege over people who identify as women - to give both groups’ issues equal attention is to uphold that inequality. If we want to gain any kind of equality, we need to address issues proportionally. Especially considering how many problems faced by men are caused by patriarchy to begin with.
Take your own advice, dudebro. Take a minute to actually research feminism beyond what Merriam-Webster and the first paragraph of a wikipedia article can give you. Excluding one gender’s issues is necessary when that gender’s privilege is the source of the inequality at hand.
You can’t bring about an equal world by pretending you live their already.
