Is feminism becoming less about equality and more about favoritism? Why or why not?

  • Unfortunately, it is possible

    Although, feminism is literally only supposed to be about total and utter equality between the two genders, some women have given it a bad reputation. Some women will begin hating on men and call that feminism, when it isn't. They continue to feed people the idea that feminism is actually misandry. That is not the case at all.

  • Yes. At least with the third era of Feminism.

    Feminism is defined the three eras. Classical, which sought voting rights. The second era, which sought every other right. And then the third era... The third started as a way to help create equality, but it's became a form of self-victimization. People who prey on the fear of inequality in order to make a profit. It's more about creating a sense of being a victim among, and then blames men for it.

    Of course, it's more complicated then that. Before amusing something and then generalizing everyone with it, you must first understand how a movements works.... It's important to remember that a movement and an ideology are separate. The ideology and the movement may go in separate directions. While the ideology of Feminism is about equality, the movement has become one of favoritism.. Women leaders realizing they can grab power and gain control by being a woman if they use Feminism right.

    Now you also have to separate the movement from it's followers. The followers believe they are following the ideology, and will defend it to the death. The movement will often do something wrong in the name of the ideology, and the followers will follow like sheep, never realizing the movement isn't actually following the ideology.

    So the Ideology is good. The followers think their good, but are actually following the movement. The movement has gone sour, and turned to favoritism.

    The movement say begun to prey on people's fears of being unequal, and blamed men for it. It seeks to gain power and money by making the problem appear like it's not going away and create a self-victimizing group.

  • Women are not discriminated against anymore.

    Women are provided with the same opportunities as men in accordance with their abilities. Seems like many feminists are simply in denial of the truth about men and women, that being that they simply are different. Not that one is better than the other (although feminists disagree often with that), but that they are different. Both in terms of personality and in terms of physical appearance an ability. So many people seem to think that equality means everyone has to be exactly the same, yet some things about women are just different than men and people need to accept and embrace that. Theres nothing wrong with it.

  • Feminism has become increasingly anti-man.

    Not to say that ALL feminists don't truly support equality, but many don't. Many support the overcoming of men. Men are being blamed for everything and being labeled as the root of all women's woes. The feminist movement has come to not only putting down men, but the stay at home mother as well. The high power working woman has become the key image of the feminist movement, and they look down upon those women who choose to take care of the home. Shouldn't feminism be about equality in general and the supporting of every woman's choice? Even if their choice differs from that of yours?

  • Feminism is not for equality, even the word "feminism" shows that.

    Some feminists are really for equality, but i see a lot of them that are totally paranoid or want the world to be ruled by women, i've seen a lot of feminists that reminds me Adolf Hitler, screaming around about evil machist. (im pretty sure a few feminists would like to make a feminist dictatorship where they put men in concentration camps)

    There shouldn't be feminists, there should be only Equalitarianists.

    I am equalitarianist and i think it's stupid to say "It's bad to hit a woman".
    The truth is "It's bad to hit someone".

    I think women should be accepted in the army and they should be treated like guys.

    But i think that it would be better if every women weared men clothes.
    There's a sexual objectification of the woman in the society, you can see that in movies or in the advertisements.

    Nudity in advertisement, on TV or in magazines should not be allowed... If a woman is nude in public, she is arrested, so why is that allowed to see naked/sexy women pictures on the bus stops ?
    It is hypocrisy. It causes hypersexualition and they tend to show women as an object of desire.

    Some women accept to follow the fashion or to dress like prostitutes, that way, they accept to be "inferior" (even if we're born equal) by being sheeps.
    Those girls are stupid, and we can't change their stupidity (They are not stupid because they are girls! They are stupid because some humans are stupid).

    The thing to do is to change the society and to fight for real equality.
    In Sauda Arabia, women are not even allowed to drive car, it's a real problem !

    Women are human beings, there shouldn't be women rights, there should be only human rights !

  • It is true

    If any women ever wants "true equality" between a man and a woman, they should come to my house and mow my lawn. Somehow, a man is expected to help with diapers, cooking, cleaning, etc etc. But when it comes to a woman helping mow the lawn, change the oil to a vehicle, fix a leak, or setting/moving furnitures, then all of a sudden it becomes "A man's job." The hypocrisy!

  • I believe that it is both but more so favoritism now days.

    Women want equal rights as men and I get that. I agree that women should be EQUAL. Feminism has become more of women are BETTER than men. One of the easiest examples is that the majority of women believe that the man should be the one to; ask the date, pay the check, and propose. I do not know about you but how many people do you hear about do not do that and stay in the relationship? Very few. Society is now accepting that the women is higher than the man and that he should be the one to do all the stuff that could turn out with humiliation. Now, I am not saying that women should do everything but that it should be acceptable for both. The sad part is that the majority of women are prideful(I mean nothing against you nice folk). I know that my mother is a prime example. She has never apologized to a man(specifically husband and boyfriends) for a thing in her life. She expects them to, basically as society puts it, be the man of the relationship. Switching that around, is that a bad thing? No. Men should be the men of the relationship but women should also get a few of the ideals of men just as men should get a few from women. We both have issues a general population but feminism is just one face for women about the silliness of society.

  • Yes and no

    It's more complicated than that. Today we're becoming a society of the rich if you will. So obviously anyone with money can get away with anything. You got girls who are gold-diggers. They get away with anything they feel like. You got guys (and tomboys) who are rich who steal. They get away with it.

    There is more feminist ranting but I think it's all a joke and it's powerless.
