When I was younger I thought of myself as a feminist.

Do I think men and women deserve equal rights under the law? Of course.

Do I think men and women deserve equality of opportunity? Yes.

As I grew up, and learned about the world, and continued my eduction, I realized that modern day feminism isn't about equality, and it rejects the physiological fact that men and women are different.

Unlike many modern feminists, and as an ecology enthusiast (technically a geologist by trade), I see no problem with admitting the biological differences in males and females.

Men and women are different, and this is a good thing. Gender interactions should not be adversarial, they should be complementary.

Isn't it sad that we have to all emphatically remind people that men and women are different which is something even young children can understand? They don't have to be taught that, they can see with their own eyes. Feminism is so insidious it makes people reject their own common sense.

I agree with everything you've said here, and I would add that modern feminism is actually harmful to women too. It tells women who they are and are not allowed to be. Want to be a SAHM? No! That's shameful! Want children? No! That's oppressive! You're not just a baby maker!

Which brings me to the second biggest thing that pisses me off about feminism: it teaches women to HATE the most miraculous ability of their own bodies- creating life. How extraordinary is that? Yet they are taught to hate it, that it is a "burden" a woman must extricate themselves from. Bullshit. It's a fucking miracle and a privilege.

I too am happy that more young women are waking up to this. The latest representation of toxic feminism in action is Kathy Griffin. An old, dried up,childless, marriage-less old hag that is angry at the world because she's ugly, sad and alone.

Luckily there are plenty of examples of this, and hopefully that'll wake these young women up to the sad life ahead of them if they pursue the "feminist" lifestyle.

I was never specifically told not to be a SAHM, my mother has always pushed for grandchildren, and my parents had a very traditional marriage where my father commuted for work and my mother stayed home and managed the kids and the household.

In spite of all this, my parents still pushed the narrative that if I didn't go to college and get a degree I would end up pumping gas or working as a grocery store clerk, broke and alone forever. It was always about the career.

When I was young, only my grandmother would tell me I could snag any husband I wanted, and whenever we would have a huge family dinner that I helped cook and prepare for, my uncle would tell me what a great housewife I'd make some day. I used to find that offensive; by that time I was already in the mindset that I could be so much more than a wife/mother. We would tease my uncle and call him Uncle Chauvinist or Uncle Islam. He did not comprehend how his comment could be taken as offensive.

Thankfully, I have traveled to a lot of (pardon my frankness here) shithole countries and seen what it truly means to be oppressed, and I do love my work/career which I've lately turned into a small business startup so I can work from home once I have children.

It would have been nice if when I was a kid, my parents told me that I could get married, have kids, and get a degree that allowed me to have an income and also flexibility. If I started having kids 5 years ago, I could still be doing what I'm doing and be raising them already.

I'm thankful I realized all this before it was too late. What's the point of being a 60 year old woman with a high paying corporate job when there's noone in your life to share it with?

That was such a rambling response I sent you! I guess the thesis I was trying to get to there is that, even from parents who don't specifically promote feminism, the ideology of it is pervasive. It's everywhere and accepted.

I personally don't think whistling at women in the street is polite behaviour, but the feminist claim that it is "oppression" is just plain ridiculous.

I've lurked for quite a while on this site, bute its the constant shilling and hatred for "traditional gender roles" that made me actually wanna fight for this site. Fuck everything the left is trying to push on you. Be the women you want to be.

Well, considering that image has been poorly altered in photoshop, I'd wager the woman pictured might not actually be rejecting feminism.

Even if it is fake (and I'm not sure it is) there are quite a lot of anti-feminist women these days.

It started as a feminist thing ("I need feminism because..."), then anti-feminists did a counter campaign and parodied the original.

Which begs the question be asked, what are they rejecting establishment feminism for? Traditionalism is clearly one of them, but what else are they gravitating towards?

It's still the subject of a great deal of propaganda though. Anyone who goes through university will have it crammed down their throats and be told that it just means equality and won women the vote etc.

Most women have never self-decribed as feminists anyway. Even in Milo's pro-shut in article he noted that 80% don't identify as feminists. In some sectors of society, particularly in the working class, I'm far more likely to encounter eager to party sluts than man haters. The hated feminist can even be something of a unicorn type figure in my experience.

It'd be interesting to see studies analyzing to what degree obesity and porn addiction exists in men that bitch about how all women are no good feminist cunts.
