    I think a section of modern feminism takes a militant perspective on the destruction of misguided view of a patriarchy.

    Like woman who don't shave their arm pits and call guys assholes when they don't find it attractive.

    But a large portion of feminist just want a fair playing ground for everyone.

    There's no one specific or unified view on feminism.

    On a side note, I think a lot of female fighters spend a lot of time with male fighters in a training setting so there's more respect and cooperation in an environment like that. - + 1 for mma.

    Feminism has been taken to the extreme to play men and women against each other so that the two sexes might get to the point where they forgo love between one another and become serial monogamist and embrace wild promiscuity and a hedonist/materialist lifestyle. Why is this good? Because this culture/society will push the masses to forgo parenting to the state.

    The elites who are pushing this are our liberators and we embrace the liberty because we know it as the right thing to do.

    It is allowed to happen and will continue precisely because people value pleasure and productivity over repression and chastity.

    The re-engineering of young women and men is quite beautiful to see. We are reverting them to their earlier and more pure states of infancy.

    2 in my opinion. There is a double standard when it comes to promiscuity. Girls that sleep with a bunch of guys are labeled sluts, which in most cases is derogatory. But guys who sleep with a bunch of girls are usually the kings of their schools and are looked at much more positively.

    But I do agree that encouraging your kids to dress tastefully and having that kind of influence in their lives is definitely a good thing.

    That second quote could be - and often is - the argument for women not being allowed to participate in MMA.

    The destruction of marriage, the traditional family unit, and all old institutions of order is and should be our highest priority.

    Part of this is done by confusing young women and making them believe they are victims and to believe that "empowerment" and "freedom" can only be achieved by acting sexy and giving your body to hot men for sex.

    Is that really a result of feminism though? It's seems to more steam from the "sexification" of mass-media. Quasi-pornographic imagery has become common in advertizement and entertainment. Thus, young woman internalize this and become more sexualized as a consequence. Which leads them to connect their emotional self-worth with their sexual performances and attributes.

    She is remarkably accurate in her assessment of the sexes. They are marked by differences and that is a basic, biological fact. Moreover, "slut-shaming" is just another attack on the traditional notion of feminity to turn being a libertine into being liberated.

    I agree 100%. I am now a fan of her.

    I absolutely hate modern feminism.

    Camile Paglia:

    Current educational codes, tracking liberal-Left, are perpetuating illusions about sex and gender. The basic Leftist premise, descending from Marxism, is that all problems in human life stem from an unjust society and that corrections and fine-tunings of that social mechanism will eventually bring utopia. Progressives have unquestioned faith in the perfectibility of mankind.

    The horrors and atrocities of history have been edited out of primary and secondary education except where they can be blamed on racism, sexism, and imperialism — toxins embedded in oppressive outside structures that must be smashed and remade. But the real problem resides in human nature, which religion as well as great art sees as eternally torn by a war between the forces of darkness and light....


    ...The gender ideology dominating academe denies that sex differences are rooted in biology and sees them instead as malleable fictions that can be revised at will. The assumption is that complaints and protests, enforced by sympathetic campus bureaucrats and government regulators, can and will fundamentally alter all men.

    100% correct IMO. Couldn't find anything objectionable at all on the first reading.

    Do you just post this stuff to get attention? Cause you seem retarded and possibly mentally imbalanced.

    The part of feminism that has mouth breathing retards like Sarkeesian as one of their champions are misguided idiots at best, manipulative lying sacks of shit with an agenda at worst. Take your pick.

    Her views on these things sound about as well-informed and thought out as Monson's political philosophies.
