This thread is here to see if you feminists can try and convert me
I aint gonna lie there and let you convince me just like that though
this IS an arguing website
so imma use logic against you
come at me
Feminism is good because women don’t get equal pay and often find themselves feeling unsafe around men.
However misguided their efforts may seem to you, feminism is conceptually intended to remedy these issues. It’s okay to criticise the methods and ideology of any one person, but to let that tarnish your opinion on feminism is to say that the wage gap and gender inequality are not real problems.
I first want to say that feminism isn’t bad, the feminist are. Many feminist give people like me, a true feminist, a bad name. Feminism is the fight for equal rights between men and women, and I truly believe in this. The feminist that give other feminist a bad name, are the ones who can’t take a Hugh Mungus joke. Some people believe that feminism is a bad thing, but the truth is that they’ve just seen bad feminist. This is a real problem. Both men and women are oppressed and are treated as if they are a less dominant gender at times. That’s why everyone needs to put our differences aside, and just accept people as people.
It’s too general when we talk about feminism in America. There are many countries where women suffer. I live in Lebanon and we truly suffer. We have this tradition where women should clean the house, cook every meal, take care of her kids, serve guests alone…Where as the men would go to their work and come back home without being a part of all this (But after all it depends on the house and the people). We have laws that are very sexist honestly. This first law, that was put up a long time ago and was changed a year ago, is if a woman was raped then it’s her fault. The second law is if a man is beating a woman then it’s okay because he’s teaching her “manners”. I think that these laws are very very discriminating and unfair. I currently interviewed a woman who works in the media and she told me that even if she has the same job as a man in her department, she’s always paid less. It’s not only these cases, it’s also beauty pageants. Every contestant is very skinny and has a tanned body and all those things. Is that really the meaning of beauty? I find it very fat shaming. It’s like the new series of Debby Ryan “Insatiable” where she had to become skinnier just to feel beautiful. In my opinion feminism is a great mouvement in many countries especially in the Middle East.
the basis of feminism is good it’s the idea that the genders should be equal. but modern feminism twist this idea into “all men are horrible, and men are evil just by being men.” many white feminists also talk over the voices of poc and trans women when their input is valuable to understanding the struggles of not only gender but also race and identity and how all three of those go together
