im getting sick and tire of people here in this site and every where else in my personal life who keep bashing and judging me because of my views on feminism. every time I ask a question here or whatever and people don't like it they decide to attack me and use my negatives views on feminism against me. like these two question are a perfect example...
now I'm aware that those questions are old. but still, noticed how none of them have anything to do with my views on feminism yet people there decided to use it as a weapon against me.
now, as a human (not just a man) I think I have my reasons to view feminism in a negative way and being race in America I believe that I have my rights to believe whatever I want to believe and express myself anyway I want as long as I'm not hurting anyone; which is something that I never done in my life.
anyways, my question is simple. why do I need to respect women who believe all men are rapists, murders, wife beaters etc? why do I need to respect an organization that has caused chaos and turmoil to our society?

Well I think you're lumping everyone into the same category which seems to be one if your complaints about so labelled "feminists" thinking bad things of all men. Sometimes you hear things and I roll my eyes too, the loudest people spouting off about any given topic often don't represent the majority of people who think like that. Now no disrespect to any of the comments out there, I'm sure they're a mixed bunch, and I can't possibly read everything youve read but neither can you of my experiences...but a lot of us base our views on a logical argument ...but I find I get my head bitten off by the zealots of any group. Whether you're vegetarian, vegan, Indian, African, non violent, Christian, Muslim, gay, straight and on and on, each group suffers from misconceptions and misrepresentation. I prefer to ignore labels and keep an open mind, listening to the argument behind each persons decision, you don't need to respect people if you don't agree with them, but at least have the courtesy not to lump everyone into the same group without hearing them out :) I'm sure you would prefer us to also do that for you2
