My biggest gripe with modern-day feminists, is how they have brainwashed my generation (I'm born in 1988) that "equality" includes women having the "choice" to NSA sex - aka: One night stands, friends with benefits, etc. As if they are winning by "Sticking it to the man" or "Who says only men can do that?". The ONLY THING this has accomplished (in the veil of "equality") is a rise in unplanned pregnancies - not to mention abortions -, the rise of single mothers, as well as YOUNG mothers who are under 18, and ultimately has driven down the numbers of people who remain [faithful] in their marriages, or even choose to get married at all! We also have so many women who not only *think* like men, but act and dress close enough to one. This has not caused men to treat women equal in a sense that I believe THE original feminists rights activists would have wanted, but instead have caused many [American] men to seek out their LONG-TERM partnerships and/or marriages with women overseas, claiming that these women seem to be the only ones left who remember that they are in fact, women! There's nothing wrong with wanting a better life and an option to choose your path, but I draw the line where these new *Feminists* think they have to stop wearing make-up and dresses, have casual sex (which by the way, women are naturally prone to experience a higher rate of negative emotions through such actions), and swear like a sailor, in order to "prove" they are "equal" or that "We can do what men do, maybe even better". Yeah, I'm a woman who may *Love* to shop, but I AM NOT buying this bull!
Feminists have a history of hateful comments about men and the preaching of violence and dehumanizing of men to the point of absurdity! They think in order to have equality they have to put men & boys down. If history has taught us anything it is that that never works in the long run! That's why I oppose them!
Where has the charm gone? Why is it that females must scream equality at just about every opportunity they get? Every single workplace I have worked at - I have encountered these women. It's like this, if they don't get their way - then they WILL make you suffer one way or the other, it's like it's personal to them, like wanting this as some sort of weird victory, regardless of whom it hurts or if it destroys the company, just as long as they are in control. I never got that. How is that winning?
Frankly the whole concept of women's rights and the groups of specific chunks of the population is crazy. It implies that different groups are not treated equally under the law. Women and men should be held to the same standard as far as the law is concerned. No unequal treatment either way. Wish feminists would understand that and reflect it in their actions.
One thing i hate about feminism, is that they chant for equality when it suits them. I have not once heard or seen a "Female Drafting" protest. It has only been for more money for less work they have to do. What about for rape accusations? A female can accuse whoever they want for rape, and the courts would believe them (until no evidence if found). But where are the male rape victims of females? Apparently, a majority of some population doesnt seem to care about them enough to talk about them
Some feminists have gone way too far. A certain few have moved outside the realm of women's liberation into what basically amounts to discrimination and stereotyping of men. Not everyone can be neatly grouped into distinct categories and the over arching assumptions that some feminists have to come to about men can not be applied to all of them.
Look I'm not against equality. But feminists have started calling the smallest things sexist. Such as An X-Men banner. Things in America are more equal than they ever have been before, so why are they still unhappy? They have gotten to the point of taking away freedom of speech. Which I'm sorry, fucking outrageous

As a teenager brought up in this generation, I can say that feminists have started to become annoying. This is because we have lost the purpose of this movement. Before feminism was the purpose getting the same rights as men. There were commendable figures such as the Suffragettes who had fought to get the right to vote. Now, it is mainly about the media and the internet undermining men. If a man was to say one tiny thing the whole internet would explode. Feminism has caused us to be overtly politically correct. I am not dismissing the fact that there is gender equality in the word, there is. But this has become a for a bunch of girls on the internet to whine about how they have struggles (e.G giving birth, periods etc) and having this attitude that men don't do anything. The purpose of it is lost. For now, feminists should focus on problems worldwide such as providing girls education in LICS and stop the tradition of child brides and also recognise the struggles that men face too, instead turning it into a war where it is between two genders. We can't carry on with this attitude where the roles of women are recognised but the roles of men are yet to be. At the moment, we can't progress.
Men created meninism to show how stupid that the feminist are being but women say that men are the ones who are hot headed meanwhile they are the ones getting upset over meninist try to make it fair to men. Why cant the woman pay for diner why cant she hold the door for me why am i the one who ends up doing the physical labor around the house while she stays in and cleans? Why cant we just be fair the the world switch it up people. Men clean the house or cook dinner. Women mow the lawn or take your man out for dinner one day!
As women are innately inferior to men, they will always require extra help. Not only that, its very "anti-sexist" to hate men. You know, give them a dose of their own medicine. The best way to end sexism is to be sexist against men until they learn the harms. Women are naturally more aggressive and more athletic than men, which means their under representation must have come about by external forces, like men's aggressive and athletic nature, pushing women aside for thousands of years.
No feminist have not gone to far. All they are seeking is an equal right in everything a man is allowed to do. They want the same pay, the same benefits, and the same equality that men still seem to have and women still seem to struggle for till this day.
Gone too far with what? Feminists have not gone nearly far enough in insuring that women in this country get treated with respect, get equal pay for equal work, and get certain considerations for bearing children and raising the next generation of our country. Feminists should be shouting from the rooftops every day, striking at work, and voicing their opinions vehemently throughout this country until positive change takes place that puts them on equal footing.
Really depending on which country you are living in, there is still so much more need for feminism. However, the problem is with the radical feminists, they shout loudest and those are the ones you will remember. I, as a male, tried to attend 3 feminism info evenings, of which i was refused by 2 to participate because i was a guy. These people are the radicals. However, the average feminist are often not in clubs, they try to better the world around them themselves. And ill try to be part of that.
Please everyone, leave aside what happened in the past. Yes, many guys were sexist years ago, but we are in a new generation. Please dont punish guys for what their grandfathers did. If you want the support of men (which id say should be a big part of solving the problem) you need to be on the same side, not fighting them
The rights of women are still not up to those of men. In some countries they lack some of the basic protections and rights that one should expect. Feminists need to continue working to get some of the things that they feel they should have and be allowed to do in their lives.
