First and second wave feminism were legitimate movements. Women deserve dignity and political equality.

Third wave feminists want freedom without responsibility. They want preferential treatment for women while recasting female responsibility as systemic oppression. They want women to be dependent"not on men, but on the State.

Of course, this is an outrageously misogynistic worldview. Despite literally millions of examples to the contrary, feminists simply presume that women can"t fend for themselves in a free society. Their agenda looks something like this:

Free birth control
Free abortions
Maternity leave with raises and promotions (men can"t be permitted to earn more)
The right to consider men guilty until proven innocent (abolition of due process)
Bans on anti-feminist speech (and jail time for offenders like Milo Yiannopoulos)
Do these sound like valid rights or nanny state privileges for presumed weaklings?

Feminism is a misnomer. The movement has been infected with social justice disorder.

If you doubt this, skim through a few feminist blogs. You"ll notice that before making an argument, the authors apologize for being straight, white, able-bodied, etc. Feeling shame for one"s existence or biological makeup isn"t natural; it"s a symptom of mental illness.

Actually, to be completely honest, feminism movements are for gender equality. Not saying you don't have a point, but women do receive lower wages than men, according to http://www.iwpr.org... , which was backed up with about 10 resources.

Feminism has never been about "gender equality" it has always been about feminine superiority. I am a fairly old man now and I remember the beginnings of the Movement. It was about equality for women, but only for SOME women. It was all about women in business,the ad agencies,the banks,any concern except the "mundane". What does a housewife with kids to care for care about equal pay? What does a woman putting a gromit into a bigger gromit all day care about equal opportunity in the work place?. The movement was elitist from the start, not caring about shopgirls,hairdressers,factory workers and nurses and that is why it failed.
