• Are feminists *REALLY* against gender roles?

    Because it seems to me, as a woman who happens to dress and act extremely masculine, that they're the ones who alienate me the most and have given me the most sh!t for rejecting femininity. In fact, my personality matches their stereotypical description of a man's more than anything else, which is hilarious... show more
    Because it seems to me, as a woman who happens to dress and act extremely masculine, that they're the ones who alienate me the most and have given me the most sh!t for rejecting femininity. In fact, my personality matches their stereotypical description of a man's more than anything else, which is hilarious to me, but still pretty tiring. Not to mention that, in addition to leaving out masculine women, feminine men are mysteriously absent from both their activism and all their anti-masculine arguments. It's almost as if, deep down, feminists are just as dedicated to traditional gender roles as mainstream society. After all, if everyone acts the way they're supposed to, it's way less intimidating and easier to categorize them into tiny little stereotypical boxes for the sake of an argument. No thinking required!

    Hey people, just want to talk about something... Today I did my physics exam which is the only exam that i have left to finish high school and it went really bad... I will spend one more year trying to finish high school... I'm really mad at myself, I consider myself a smart person but I don't have any motivation to study, I try hard to but I get tired very easily... It's really frustrating cause I'm 21, I don't work and my brothers who are younger than me: one is going to university this year and the other is already in university... All my family (parents and brothers) think I am mentally weak, lazy and immature person and that I won't go far in life, my youngest brother told me just a few weeks ago that I am the worst person he ever met, that i make everybody uncomfortable whenever I'm around and that he wishes I was dead... I want to prove that they are all wrong, I'm always arguing with my dad cause I don't like the way he treats me but at the same time I know I depend of him to everything and he feels he is in the right to say what he wants to me cause he pays me everything (psychologist, jazz school, etc.) Can anybody give me some motivation please?

  • Originally Democrats were racist, but now it appears that most racist people identify as Republican, why?

    The KKK was founded by democrats, but today and in very recent history as far back as the 1950s they become mostly republicans. Originally democrats supported slavery. Republicans never supported slavery as far as I know, but democrats did. I Just wanted to point that out. So why are most racists today aligned... show more

  • This makes no sense to me - men's rights want to promote equal custody for men but also the reproductive rights for men?

    which actually means the right for men to go around and impregnate many women and not do a thing or pay a cent to raise their kids. How can they want both?

  • Why do men on YouTube hate women so much?

    Best answer: It's the internet and you are looking at a subsection of hateful idiots, both feminists and misogynists populate certain areas of the internet and spew hate towards each other (right here in GS is in fact one of them), those areas of youtube you found are similar areas. You can keep looking at that stuff and... show more
    Best answer: It's the internet and you are looking at a subsection of hateful idiots, both feminists and misogynists populate certain areas of the internet and spew hate towards each other (right here in GS is in fact one of them), those areas of youtube you found are similar areas.
    You can keep looking at that stuff and believe that is how normal people are, or you can just close the page and go somewhere normal and better yet close your computer and go talk to real life people and realise that they are nothing like these screwed up people in those sections.

  • What's your opinion on the reluctance of feminists to criticize minorities and some of their practices?

    Some of these practices don't just happen in the developing world. Child grooming for example is an issue among Pakistani migrants in the UK. But British feminists aren't vocal about it, all they seem to talk about these days is the pay gap. Here are some reasons why I think they're so quiet in minority... show more
    Some of these practices don't just happen in the developing world. Child grooming for example is an issue among Pakistani migrants in the UK. But British feminists aren't vocal about it, all they seem to talk about these days is the pay gap. Here are some reasons why I think they're so quiet in minority issues: 1. They don't want to be called racists, Islamophobes, etc. 2. They only care about their own struggles and how unfair their life is compared to the White man. 3. They judge people based on different standards. If you're a minority, then it's justified for you to be a little bit sexist, racist or homophobic. After all, it's not your fault if you're brought up in such a way. What's your opinion on this?

    Best answer: "Male feminists, why not give all your $ to women? You know, for equality.?"

    Male feminists don't believe that *they* are part of the problem. It's .... you know .... other men. Everyone except them. In essence, these are not men. They act like the same irresponsible social justice warriors as the female feminists around them. They don't have money, and they don't see why they should earn money. They are probably waiting for other men and society to give them money for their (lol) "oppression" as feminists.

    They CAN'T give money away because they don't have any. They're not men, that are still expected to earn more than they contribute and do the heavy lifting for society. These are only men in appearance. They are feminists. Male feminists.

    Male feminists are useful idiots for the feminist cause that are not respected as men for mating purposes by female feminists, or most other females actually. And this is not shaming, it's reality. Male feminist behavior is not conducive to female romantic triggers.
