Its not really. Im definitely not a feminist but my girlfriend is. We just dont talk about it much but when we do i guess its interesting. one thing she hates is that whenwe go for a meal out I refuse to pay for her part and will only go 50/50 and when she asks why I just say because feminism. At the start of the relationship she was all about consent, but later on she's conditioned me to be less polite and dominate her.
I don't think it's for a lot, just for the ignorant ones like the majority of the guys on this site who bash it. They do not know what feminists really are and just assume that all of them are feminazis, when they are a minuscule percentage. It's the equivalent of saying all Muslims are terrorists. Just pure ignorance.
because feminism says that they work towards equality, while acting in ways that harm men and boys. on my Facebook page I have a list of 4 things that I am working on, and all 4 of them are steps towards equality yet are contrary to feminist doctrin. they are:
We must address this idea that men are privileged, and women are oppressed. To let each gender recognize that both genders have problems and to address these as societal problems, and not have this dialog of "who has it worse." If people are suffering then we should stop the suffering and not argue that group A is suffering so we can ignore that group B is also suffering. And this comes from awareness. Letting people know that this isn't a zero sum game.
The second goal is to recognize that there is nothing wrong with showing compassion for both men and boys. That guys can and do deserve basic human compassion.
The third is to destroy the myth that men are inherently dangerous. That just because a person has a penis doesn't mean that they are going to rape or kill you. And this is, again, looking at statistical facts and pointing out that men and women rape at roughly the same rate, that women are just as likely to be domestically violent as men, etc.
And lastly we need to stop trying to turn men into women, we need to recognize that there are biological, psychological and hormonal differences between the sexes. That each gender deals with stimuli differently, and that there are natural ways that each gender addresses emotional distress.
For the same reason unemployment among other things are deal breakers for women. Men do not want to have to abide by traditional standards for women who are not going to do the same. This is the same reason why women do not want to commit and be wives to men who will not take care of them.
True Gender Equality - I eat healthy, I work out, I exercise. I maintain a healthy weight. And my girlfriend also eats healthy, exercises, and maintains a healthy weight.
Feminist's Idea of Gender Equality - I eat healthy, I work out, I exercise. I maintain a healthy weight. My girlfriend can do as she wants. She becomes fat and unattractive. I have to accept this because I am a man and she is a woman. And if I don't it means I am a womanizer.
Third-wave feminists include radicals who believe all men are cisgender privileged pigs who no nothing of women's health issues. In fact, I probably no more about the anatomy than many of these radical feminists do. I'm all for women's rights, but don't blame me for knowing the difference between wages and earnings and not putting women on a pedestal
It's a turn on if she's a true feminist fighting for equality of both genders, it's a huge turn off if I find they're one of the keyboard warriors that attack the opposite gender in their compurters lol
Because of social media more and more "feminists" believe everything they read and don;t listen to actual facts. I avoid women who are very in your face about being a feminist, it usually means it will lead to arguments in he future, not worth the aggravation. If I hear one more feminist tell me 1 in 4 women will be raped or that there is a big wage gap.
Haha, this is in response to that deal breaker question isn't it. 'Why is being a feminist a deal breaker for women?' Are you for real. Look at the way you go on and what your trying to do. I like the fact you whine about that when women have unjust deal breakers like can't be skinny, hairy or bad teeth or have a disability. And that is because of feminism, you got no room to complain. You reap what you sow.
Cause people are fucking idiots and read propaganda statistics of some guy that sells you futons online over less biased academic institutions. Cause one extremist activist voice weighs more than a hundred. Eugh that was really preachy and disgusting
because some girls say they want everything to be equal but in all honestly sometimes they over do it and make it unfair for men. Or some men don't like being equal to women because that's just how they are, you can't change someones views by force and sometimes feminist try to hard to, in my opinion
Have you not seen how 3rd wave feminist act these days? They have made feminism look down right disgusting and an absolute joke. Then there are men that as soon as they here the word "feminist" their mind goes straight to "man hating women that want to over power and control them". That is Not what feminism was suppose to be about.. it was just suppose to be about equality in the workforce. To work along side men not throw them under the bus. But it's no wonder why they think that way cause of how some feminist present themselves and feminism today.
I think it's a deal breaker for a certain select group of men, but it's probably not a group that a self-professed feminist would be interested in dating. I would say that the average man isn't concerned. I've never had any issues dating while feminist.
I don't know, there are a few girls that take it waaaay to far that I can see why you wouldn't want to date them. But I consider myself a feminist, as in I believe men and women should have equal rights. But if I mention that it seems like it offends a lot of people.
for obvious reasons. most feminists are irrational, paranoid, delusional, and angry. And just watch. people will downvote me and comment on this saying that "I'm a feminist, and I'm not like that." just because YOU aren't like that doesn't disprove the fact that most feminists are delusional.
If I was a dude, I would be like, "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED." 😆
