Would you date a Feminist?
What Guys Said 92
I wouldn't date half of the feminists who would call themselves "feminists". They make the other real feminists and the word feminist look like shit. The first and second wave feminists are okay for me. I can't stand the modern third wave extreme version of feminism. I can't stand it so much that I would be super fucking gay if it wasn't for my current girlfriend.
I don’t understand why some men are so sensitive about this. It’s quite amusing indeed. I would surely date a feminist as long as she’s not abusive or doesn’t treat me like shit. As long as she’s a good person, I think that’s all that matters.
It really depends.. If you're the Christina Hoff Sommers type, or the Cassie Jaye type Sure why not.. If you're the big red type or the kind that believes in the wage gap, rape culture, #metoo, and that women in the west are oppressed, than no not worth my time, because that type sees all men as the enemy when we are not.
If I had a choice between dating a feminist and a hippo, I would choose a hippo. Even one that is smelly.
No. Femenists are delusional people, no offense. Most believe that because they are paid less for working in the same environment as men, there must be unfair pay. Not taking, the field of work, skill, or even the role of their job into consideration.
Unlikely. Bedroom feminists don't really know much about what they're "fighting" for and activist feminists are taught and spread little more than propaganda and slogans. Now a days feminism shames women for wanting to be men's counterpart instead of being their competitor. It's too disheartening for me to agree with.
Absolutely not. How could I possibly date a woman that despises men and refuses to see them as human beings? Doesn't make much sense.
A reasonable one like I would like a reasonable member of any movement
no, nowadays 3rd wave feminism is full of retardation and attention, both traits i hate, if you need lots and lots of attention you'll have to find someone else because i can't be there 24 fucking 7.
Depends. An emma watson style feminist. Sure. But a cunt Lord like Anita-imma run to the UN to complain about women in video games- Sarkezen, well that's a different story if you would find common place in Tumblr politics.
What kind of feminist? one that supports equality or the kind that hates men and wants to cut of dicks for fun?
Most likely not if we are assuming to be referring to the ones whom usually self identify as one.
But it depends. Traditional feminists aren't too bad. At least they have dignity.
Sure, if their opinions are quite normal, nothing extremist. I have some feminist friend and she has a heart of gold and is really quite funny, so I know it's possible
Yes, in short. I despise third wave feminism and I think they are a cancer on this earth and I am a conservative. BUT! I would date anyone who sees potential in life and wants to speak about it.
Sure. You've never met a femenist until you've been to Minnesota. I tbink it takes a man to make a woman, and a woman to make a man.
a normal feminist, why not, but lets not get confused with feminazi
I would ONLY date a feminist. I believe in equality so that is very important to me.
It depends on your definition of "feminist". If the word "feminist" is used to mean "egalitarian", then yes. Although, that's a manner of labeling. Anything else, and my answer would be a definite HELL - 2 the - NO. To me, it seems that Feminism today is no longer about elevating women to become equal to men, but it seems to be a lot more about female supremacy. Too many feminists are working on swinging the pendulum to the extreme opposite size, instead of helping stop it in the middle, where it should be.
I don’t even understand what that word means anymore.
You know, I really don't like self professed -ists of any kind, unless they really have something to show for that warrants them claiming such a title.
If you call yourself an environmentalist but the only thing you actually do is to vote green and recycle, you've just slapped a "I'm a good person" level on yourself, and that I find really unsexy.
It might be an American thing to do this a lot. I don't know.
Not that it's an absolute dealbreaker but I'd prefer she'd say "I support some feminist causes" if she agrees with those things but isn't actually putting any work in.
No, why you may ask because she’ll moan and moan about stupid irrelevant feminists shit.
Not likely. I would give her a chance but my guess she's get fed up with me real quick.
What are the pros? I can only think of the cons. Maybe if the date goes bad I know she'll pay her way?
I'd love to. It would be a very interesting date with a very interesting woman.
Depends what kind of feminist hahaha
Im not dating anyone who sees me as less Because of who I am.

I am one, so yeah. I pretty much try NOT to date people who are anti-feminist.
No. The only thing that is a bigger turn off than a woman is a feminist is a man that is a feminist.
No. Dumbest thing to do.
