Why are we obsessed with feminism again?
I keep seeing it everywhere. I mean is there any reason to be obsessed over it. I keep seeing atheist talking about how either feminism is evil or how feminism can save the world. Like I asked before, why are we obsessed with it again?

RE: Why are we obsessed with feminism again?
Because feminazis are loud and ignorant, like theist fundies. And, like theist fundies, they're so loud that some people assume they're the majority, or at least speak for the rest.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

I have seen far, far more people railing against purported "feminazis" than I have ever seen actual such people.

So there's that.

... this is my signature!

That's one difference between them and the fundies. There are more or less the same number of fundies than there are people who rise against them. At least in some places. In other places, not so much.

Three words to answer the question in a nutshell:

Loud, Vocal, Minority.

Personally I think feminism should be on the bottom of what we worry about. Fighting for women rights is important, however I don't have to be a feminist to want women to have rights. Feminist should be left alone.

No the difference is the Fundies are a clear and persistent sect were as the "Feminazis" are mostly a strawman fantasy with only a very few and far between example.

It's all a question of definitions at this point...

Seeing how feminism is really rights for female equality, it is not the only way to support women's rights. Same as I can support animal rights without being a member of peta and eating meat.
