Am I the only one who thinks these new age feminist trends are stupid?!
For ex. Free bleeding, public nudity, and trying to "out sex" men to prove a point of double standards.
If you think they're stupid then don't do it.
I think free bleeding is disgusting but if that's how a woman feels comfortable then hey, whatever, she should do what she's gotta do (assuming she's not destroying people's couches in the process).
What kind of public nudity? Topless protesters? Public breastfeeding? Nude beaches?
There are double standards when it comes to casual sex, I would be very surprised if anyone tried to argue that - if by "out sex"ing you mean women not being silent about having casual sex then I think that's great. People will have as much as sex as they want, if they document it to make a valid social statement then I say good for them.
I think some people can take feminism (or anything) to extremes, but I don't view any of the things you've mentioned as particularly harmful to anyone so I don't see the point in judging.
Women with "traditional values" have always felt it was not in women's best interest to pursue equality with men especially in the dating and sexual arena of life. They loved chivalry.
Progressive women oftentimes view chivalry as sexism.
They resent being seen as "the weaker sex" and instead want to be able to have the same opportunities/choices as men in society.
What makes a "double standard" in part is when (both genders) agree something is wrong when one of them behaves a certain way.
If for instance no women looked down upon other women who had multiple sex partners women would be on par with men who for the most part don't put down men for doing the same thing.
Where as many men might admire a "playboy" who has sex with many beautiful women a "traditional woman" feels threatened by women who dress provocatively and are sexually liberated. They believe these women make it that much harder for them to find and keep a "good man" or at the very least affect how men view women.
I believe what's stupid is caring how others choose to live.
Life is a (personal) journey!
As humans evolve, trends change. I personally see no reason why men have some rights and women do not. I mean, some men have bigger boobs than some women. I'd rather have those men wear bras than walk around half-naked rofl Just kidding but You get the point (hopefully).
Not everyone likes the changes but I am sure the dinosaurs didn;t like the changes happening in their time either. I say: we either adapt, or join the dinosaurs.
If feminists were truly in favor of female equality, they'd point out the evils of the Arab Muslim world from Saudi Arabia prohibiting women from being in public without a male guardian escort to ISIS bringing back sex slavery to many Muslim nations still weighing women as half the worth of a man from inheritance to court testimony.
But no, they'd rather focus on problems so small they are micro, while ignoring Muslim immigrants whose culture lets them rape Western women (and have been doing so) and forcing their kinswomen to cover up and accept arranged marriages under pain of death.
Very worrying is that we haven't come far. It's the 21st century and there are still some elemental non aggreeance with the sexes. I feel men still prefer men over women and most women dislike their own gender.
This is a huge topic and I have to say I haven't done my research here so my response will be skewed to what I have personally experienced or seen. But I am ashamed of us all in how we relate or treat the "feminine"-whatever that means today.
I am a heterosexual but I have always stripped the gender of the person away when I am connecting and responding to that human that essence within. Because irrespective of our gender I think its fair to say we all want and share these basic wants and needs. That is to have warmth shelter food belonging acceptance and value.

Why do so many confuse Feminism with Misandry?Misandry is the hatred of men, feeling that men are beneath women. Feminism is not that. Although some radical feminists may feel that way, the definition of a feminist is "the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political,...

What do you think of a man who says, "I would hit a woman......if she provoked me or slapped me." or..."I was raised to hit back and nobody said not to hit women." I recently heard someone say this. Are they 'in the right' or are they cowardly? Are not men generally...
