That's where GI Joe came in, I guess.

1) RESPONSE: Feminism movement(s) started over 100 years ago, and has existed longer than either of us has been alive. Some of the goals of Feminism have been met, some goals have not, and some goals are still to be identified. We are in disagreement about the state of present day “Feminism movements,” because I see feminism as thriving, growing, and transforming. I base my belief on the following evidence. You can find many different types of feminism in scholarly peer-reviewed journals, sociologically and culturally new products are being produced by these Feminism Groups.

For example, Feminism has penetrated Abrahamic religions and non-religious groups: Christian feminism, Feminist Theology, Islamic feminism,
Jewish feminism, and
Atheist feminism

Do you believe these religious and non-religious feminist groups are dying out, or will die out in the near future?

Who won the Feminist Sex Wars? The sex wars have existed since the end of the sixties, should sex be private or public?

Feminist sex wars, the debate between Anti-pornography feminism and Sex-positive feminism.

We find feminism among different ethnicities: Black feminism, Chicana feminism, and Asian feminists.

We find feminism in the political sphere of social life: Anarcha-feminism,
Conservative Feminism,
and Liberal feminism.

We find Feminism informing mind and body. Amazon feminism, Analytical feminism, or
Fat feminism.

In my humble opinion, feminism is here to stay in one variant or another, and has extended to all the nations of the planet, and has entered other social spheres. To do so imply that feminism satisfies some need women have; a need for equality, a need to be respected, a need to be measured on her accomplishments, a need to self-manage their own lives, a need to be respected. I do not see feminism disappearing until better comes around to replace it, or society eliminates the needs by providing other opportunities for the needs to be satisfied.

2) RESPONSE: If you want to create a category called “New Feminism” and any girl who composes a confusing, illogical, and mostly uncomprehensible speech act does not qualify as feminism as most people use the word. Truth be told, no one uses the term “New Feminism,” could you possibly mean “Third-wave Feminism” or “Neo-Feminism”?

6 Common Expressions That Uphold Rape Culture and Objectify Women
March 9, 2016 by Suzannah Weiss
http://everydayfeminism.com/2016/03/rape...pressions/



The common theme I find in all three articles is the criticalist style. I am defining a criticalist as a researcher or theorist who attempts to use her or his work as a form of social or cultural criticism and who accepts certain basic assumptions. Be warned, it is dense and will not be fully intelligible to all readers:

1) That all thought is fundamentally mediated by power relations which are socially and historically constructed;

2) that facts can never be isolated from the domain of values or removed from some form of ideological inscription;

3) that the relationship between concept and object and signifier and signified is never stable or fixed and is often mediated by the social relations of capitalist production and consumption;

4) that language is central to the formation of subjectivity (conscious and unconscious awareness);

5) that certain groups in any society are privileged over others and, although the reasons for this privileging may vary widely, the oppression which characterizes contemporary societies is most forcefully reproduced when subordinates accept their social status as natural, necessary or inevitable;

6) that oppression has many faces and that focusing on only one at the expense of others (e.g. class oppression versus racism) often elides the interconnections among them.

Are you referring to Undoomed, he's really crazy. In the video

3) Darklight wrote: It is not just a few crazies making youtube videos: though there is not shortage of that either.

3) RESPONSE: The young woman in “Men Don’t Realize They Rape,” edited by Undoomed, never says she is a feminist nor does she says] she is speaking for feminist or any feminist group. Undoomed standard for a feminist is any woman who speaks up on some issue. Permit me to answer some of Undoomed’s questions.

In the video:
At 1:10, The girl states, she received negative reviews by “Men’s right activist .” Undoomed claims men’s right activist is a catch all phrase that you “feminists” use! In the same way he uses the word feminists. During the whole video the girl never says she is a feminist. We can affirm she is against rape, but not much else. Undoomed criticizes the girl for the same “sin” or “crime” that he practices himself. What a hypocrite!

At 2:42, Undoomed asks, “Who speaks in favor of rape?” As we will see the answer is, YOU DO UNDOOMED!


At 4:00, Undoomed states, “Lying is about the only thing people do without realizing it. I don’t think rape should be taken lightly.” And yet, he spoke falsehoods out of ignorance at best, or as a rape justifier at worst. Studies on Rape Myths or Rape Culture demonstrate that by repeating rape myths, Undoomed is increasing the proclivity of rape.


Why should the video girl express concern about Campus Sexual Violence?

Gee wiz, women in college get raped at more than double the rate in normal civilian life. Almost like being a women in the military.

Undoomed is a twit.

Respectfully,

Daniel
