It plays on the idea that women should be subservient to men, to submit to them thus establishing an unequal relationship. Feminism (some forms at least) refutes this and thus feminists don't submit.

To submit on voat means to create a link or text post.

I for one am damn glad. Feminism and anti-censorship do not mix well together.

You mean feminazis/sjws/tumblrinas and anti-censorship do not mix well together. True feminism is just humanism under a different name.

I think they work well. It forces a dialogue and it's in an environment where you could actually learn / influence a change of thought. The last thing I want voat to be is a radfem groupthink, but on the other side, I don't want it to be a Glorious Bastion of Stormfront. I like discussion and debate. So far so good, but I want to hear all of the ideas.

Why don't more feminists drop the stigma associated with "feminist" and adopt egalitarianism?

Can't wait for a woman to ask me out and buy me dinner! BRING ON EQUALITY!

[–] tame 1 points 21 points (+22|-1) ago  (edited ago)

You say this like it doesn't happen. I got asked out by a woman a few years ago and she offered to buy me dinner (well actually cook me dinner, but she bought the ingredients). She did want me to take her for a ride on the back of my bike in return. Seemed fair enough to me at the time.

We've been married for over a year now, no regrets. Nice big house (which neither of us could afford on our own salary but we can comfortably afford together), kids, 'date night' at the local pub, the works. If I've had a long week and I'm knackered, she'll make sure I get the night off to recover. And likewise, when she needs a break I'll take care of everything so she can relax.

Teamwok, folks. It is possible.

I'm not going to deny that it doesn't happen, but the 'social norm' is that men ask women out and take them out to dinner, they would then be considered 'cheap' if they didn't pay for dinner. I don't mind asking girls out, or paying for dinner, I in fact enjoy it, but if feminists are fighting for "equality" then lets pick at every corner of society and the way in which women and men are treated or act differently.

Don't let them when they do.

We're a species who have evolved over a fucking long time to be the way we are, but society has only changed to be this way in the last 30 years or so. When you go on a first date with a woman you're trying to appeal to her on a biological level as well as a personal level. When her basic instincts tell her "I'm giving my resources to potential mate instead of him giving me his" it sets off a warning that you're unable to provide for her future off spring because you're unable to provide for yourself.

Think of it like a phone app. The phone app runs on an operating system which runs on the hardware. We think we've changed the hardware because we're trying to run another app. If you're wanting a serious long term relationship and not just a free meal, you're going to want to remember the operating system and hardware it's running on. We lie to ourselves to say we want things we don't find appealing and this is why women will claim they want a kind, soft, emotionally expressive man and then find them utterly unappealing and never want to sleep with them when they meet them.

Different people have different needs. If you're on a first date with a woman whose primary need is financial, you're in for a bad time.

Only upvoating you because you're getting disagree button'd.

Keep thinking that the fabric of society will fall apart if women start asking men out. I'm sure it will get you far in life.

I upvoted for the nerdy reference. But your ideas are woefully antiquated.

Men and women have been sharing resources for a very long time. And a lot of women really DO want more emotionally expressive men. It's other men that paint emotional expressiveness as unacceptable.

Okay, I wasn't attempting to create some sort of debate, I was merely making a passing comment. I understand your POV and I understand many women buy men dinner and pay their own way.
