Of course you know all this because you yourself are so well informed on what feminism is Rolleyes A few weeks ago you were spouting unadulterated bullshit about how feminism was evil etc, and hadn't even read a wikipedia article on the subject, now you're telling us that feminism needs to be saved from destruction by fanatics... namely us.

The fact that she doesn't play games, is the mouthpiece of a right wing think tank[1], and has spent her entire adult life criticising feminism[2] should only bolster her claims. I mean. She has spent literally weeks talking to creative tech-savvy guys to form her opinion on this.

Strawman. I never claimed anything about her gender, which is irrelevant to the points she makes.

Unlike leftist echo-boxes, the AEI helps foster free thought and dissent. When Frum wrote an article attacking the Republican party, it was praised by the President of the AEI.(1) Of course, this is ad hominem as it you are addressing her rather than her points.

Thirdly, she has spent her life trying to save feminism from destruction by fanatics. She has been a feminist since she was in high school. Once again, not relevant to the points she makes and ad hominem. What she wants is a feminism based off facts, logic and rationalism, not irrational hatred of men.

I have to wonder if the feminists on this forum have any actual points, or if they are you just going to continue with fallacies?

Actually, from the beginning I have said that while I hate modern feminism, I think first and most of second wave feminism are some of the greatest social movements in history. You misrepresent me and insist that I don't even know what feminism is, which and haven't even read the wikipedia article. I have actually read quite a bit into feminism.

I do think that a women's rights movement is needed, but one that focuses on real issues, not manufactured controversy, manipulated statics and bullshit about sexy being sexist.

I don't think that's quite accurate; I think the problem is that you guys don't consider the people he argues against to be feminists, even though they themselves do.

No Vosur, he takes already extremists who are not actually feminists and then takes them up to pure strawman status. I am actually surprised how often you are quietly on the side of Res and his fellow know-nothing blowhard spine.

So when he says shit like "Oh maybe, just maybe, feminists are trying to encourage rape to make themselves more popular" - and I'm not even *exagerrating* although I can't be arsed to look up the exact quote (go look at the OP of his "Feminism, Rape and Immigration" thread if you want it) - that's not misrepresenting them? And that's not an isolated example either.

Thanks for proving my point. As for the latter part, I'm confident that I can find you self-proclaimed feminists who espouse these so-called "strawman." Care to give it a try?

As I said in my previous post, and as confirmed by Revenant just now, you wouldn't consider the people who advocate these views to be feminists, despite the fact that they themselves do.
