RE: Feminism's doublespeak with perpetual victimhood
Didn't read the whole grand diatribe, but what you're saying int his last post is very bizarre and hilarious.

"Stop calling me Angry. I'm a good person"... WHAT? is that supposed to be some indicator on something? That's a strange non sequator of unrelated things by a wide mile.

You can say you're not angry as a response to being told you come off angry and hostile, but you self described your long post as a rant. A rant itself is something that describes an aggressive stance and position. You are already putting these concepts in the others minds by traveling and describing your works in this manner.

What's with these attention seeking weirdos. Did your mommy not cuddle you enough when you were a kid?

OP, you're smarter and wealthier? Then why the fuck are you seeking attention from us? You're a fucking basement dwelling creep if I'm any judge. No wonder women want nothing to do with you.

RE: Feminism's doublespeak with perpetual victimhood
Why do they even call it feminism?

Feminists claim that feminism is about equality, but when asked why they don't call it equalism (or some other similar term) they say that it's because by and large, women have always been the underdogs.

But there are 2 huge problems with that.

1) Even if women have been the underdogs, that is not a logical reason to call it feminism. What they are effectively calling it is Womanism.

2) It alienates a huge number of people. No self respecting man or woman who believes in equality would be comfortable supporting something claiming to be about equality but which calls itself Womanism (that's basically what the Fem in feminism refers to. Women). You would think that if someone claims to strive for equality, that they would call their movement something that will appeal to other, likeminded people who also believe in equality. But no. They absolutely insist on calling it feminism. They will not budge on this. This is very telling.

So if feminists want equality, and they want people to join them, yet they insist on calling it "Woman" (Fem)ism, but they know they're going to alienate huge numbers of people, that begs the question.....is it worth it? Is it worth losing so many people all just because you want to name your movement after the supposed underdog rather than the (claimed) end goal (aka equality)?

Precisely. See my post above.

Not logical? In which fucking universe? You cannot just divest the word from it's contextual history, and since the term was coined the vast majority of cases involving sexual discrimination or inequality have favored men over women.

No, what is telling is people continuing to bitch over their personal perception of what a label means, rather than acknowledging what that label actually means in context and to those who choose to identify as it. Feminism is sexual equality, which is distinct from humanism (so no, you cannot re-purpose humanism to replace feminism to represent sexual equality because it already has it's own meaning as well); because while it is possible to be a feminist and not be a humanist, it is simply not possible to be a humanist and not also be a feminist. In a Venn diagram, humanism would be a circle that fit's entirely within feminism.

The only one being alienated here is you, and you're going out of your way to do so.

Go figure.

Fair enough, I do a lot of that now. Got some of dat women-riding planned for tomorrow evening.

And when I say "women" ... yup ... plural. Big Grin

So, "fair far better after divorce". No arguments here.

You are delusional and misogynistic. You are precisely the reason there are feminists.
