Er... ? Feminist conspiracies now ?
Not a conspiracy, just saying that even tho feminist claim that their goal is equality, everything they do and every solution to certain problem they offer suggests otherwise.

Levels of dishonesty, hypocrisy and delusion at times , that feminist manage to exhibit , make Eric Hovind look like a fuckin' amateur.

In fact, many parallels between creationism and feminism can be made.

Re: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
People don't want to be associated with extremists. I don't mind if I am labeled a feminist or environmentalist, but I would not want someone to think I am associated with the extreme ends of the spectrum of people who have devoted their whole lives to it and chain themselves to bulldozers.

In a similar sense, there are people who claim to be conservatives who are genuinely conservative for fiscal and economic reasons and would be deeply offended if you associated them with Palin, or Bachmann, or Limbaugh.

RE: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
It's the association with extremes. Most people (in my part of the world) agree with the goals of the feminist movement - gender equality in law and society. However, there are women who aren't actually going for equality, who go into the realm of punishing men and creating a matriarchy, and they have co-opted the term feminist. You know, the sitcom archetypal man-hater. Because in many people's minds - and in pop culture - the term feminist has become associated with them, those who agree with the purpose of the feminist movement distance themselves from the label. They'll agree that they support equality, but remain opposed to being called feminists.

It's the same with environmentalists. There is the association with Green Peace anti-whaling ships, hippies chaining themselves to Douglas firs, and vehement anti-petrol activists who live in hobbit homes built from old cans. People attach more meanings to the label than the label is meant to have.

It can very much be counter-productive. If you had a general rally for equality you'd get huge crowds; gay rights activists, feminist groups, humanist societies, local politicians, and more. But call it a Women's Equality March hosted by the Quiggledygork Feminist Society, and you get a smaller, almost entirely female crowd composed mostly of QFS members.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

RE: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
Extremes tend to alienate everyone in any group except the ones who accept and promote such extremism. Even on subject matter that I support and agree with, the most extreme ends of the spectrum baffle and confuse me. I support gun rights, but the super conservative gun nuts frighten me just as much as the people who want to do away with gun rights altogether. Same with animal rights, women's rights, gay rights, etc etc.

To call it a conspiracy you need to assume there is some thinking behind what they are doing. Tall order for feminists. Nah, it's more like children screaming "I want more ice cream "

RE: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
Both self-identified groups tend to be very fucking annoyingly loud in your face. It can be damn annoying.

Don't understand exactly how the bottom paragraph relates, but yes, that would be me. Also, many so-called liberals want to take away certain personal liberties as well. I'd call myself more liberal than most self-described liberals.
