So I am a Feminist, and believe that women should be treated with the same amout of respect men have. I think that there is no such thing as a "Man's job", and that women are perfectly capable of accomplishing tasks on their own, and if someone were to say something bad about women I would definently say something. Now, I am not a man-hater in any way shape or form! I totally respect them. So, do you guys have a problem with Feminists, or wouldn't date one?

So you believe that men are treating women with disrespect? In what way? As for the a "Man's job" what do you mean by that? Do you think men do not think women are capable? Would you also critisize someone who said something bad about men?
You say you respect men, but everything you said seems to suggest you think very poorly of men sinc in order to be a feminist you must believe that women are being mistreated (and men are not) and that it is at the hands of men,(since to claim it is society you would also have to acknowledge that you are just as responsible as men.) The very premise of feminisim is that men are bad since it holds as true the belief that men have oppressed women for the benefit of men since the begining of our species which is not particularly accurate. Women couldn't vote is a misnomer that implies that men could, when in fact they only gained that right in 1850(USA) while women gained it 70 years later. Mens right to vote was granted only because they manage to succesfully argue that since they could be drafted into war against there will (as well as bucket brigades to put out fires and other such situations), that meant they were active participants in the functioning of the government. Prior to this only rich land owners (men and women) where given the right to vote since they contributed to the government through property tax (their was a small rebelion in rhode island because rich land owners where taking advantage of this situation). In England a survey found that 70% of women did not want to have the right to vote strictly because they did not want to get drafted. Eventually women were given the right to vote, however they were not required to take the resposibility (the draft) that whent with it as men did. Originally men where given full custody of children in a divorce because they had both the legal and social responsibility to provide for there children. Feminist felt that this was unfair and so the laws where changed, but instead of joint custody and joint responsibility its was altered so that women would nearly always be given full custody (by default) yet men where still expected to be financially responsible for the childs well being. Women again gained the priveledge, but not the subsequent responsibility that the men had. We speak of how wrong it is that their is no women in politics yet ignore the fact that all life endangering or physicaly demanding jobs are held by men. That is not equality. No, I would not date a feminst1
