There is none, I don't remember feminism being about making men inferior to women.

No they do it from the other side.

If somebody points out a fallacy, and you call fallacy fallacy, that doesn't mean you are right. That just means you committed the very fallacy you accused your opponent of.

Laughat That is your evidence? That was pathetic. I can write better fiction in my sleep.

That was exasperation. Dodgy

That is not valid logically or morally. Drinking Beverage

Well your behaviour isn't helping that stereotype. "We deal with men's issues too but will just assert rather than giving evidence"
Feminism is the new religion.

What behavior? What stereotype?

The rest is non sequitur. Do try to stay on point.

There are downsides to being male that are not addressed. You don't have to actively discriminate to be discriminatory.

Oh the irony

RE: Why are we obsessed with feminism again?
To the question in the OT, think so many are obsessed with feminism because no two people can agree on a solid definition for it. Or maybe it is fluid like that?

So, there are a lot of misconceptions as to what feminism is and how it came to be.

Be true to yourself. Heart

Well you see it works like this. There are four sides to this

The feminazi

The feminist

Person who is not a feminist but does not hate them

and anti-feminist.

The feminazi is what anti-feminist attack the most. They tend to give feminist a bad name as they crazy shenanigans cause trouble

The feminist is different from the feminazi in the feminist is not batshit crazy. They tend to be modest when it comes to being a feminist, many times to the point you can't tell. There feminism also tends to lead to them caring about basic rights for humans all together

The Person who is not a feminist is someone who supports human rights, including women's rights but find being a feminist redundant as they of course already support all rights and don't need to be a feminist to support women's rights.

Then there is the anti-feminist. These people usually go for the feminazi, which is good, but then assume all femininity are feminazis. This is bad because as we know hasty generalization is never good.

RE: Why are we obsessed with feminism again?
I rather like feminists, being one myself. Many of the voices I've read on this thread show that many here are feminist. That's one up for all of us.

Fact (short and simple): worldwide women are little more than 1/2 the worlds human population, and worldwide women are underrepresented. What else is there to say other than many more feminist voices are needed. That's my obsession with feminism.
