Thanks for the great answer and an in depth explanation, differentiation.
Welcome.. I think a lot of people on here think i hate feminists... I dont, i just dislike the ones who are honestly hateful.
Thanks for MHO @gialuv2
Lol so it's like rust
Sort of.Rust is just a reaction though.I would say feminism is more of a parasite, since it does carry around it's own ideology and is sort of it's own thing... it's just that the thing wants to suck your blood.
Can't agree with that. Feminism has given women the right to vote and criminalized sexual harassment in the workplace. It has allowed women to work in primarily male jobs like marketing and finance. It has also allowed men to file as a single parent on their taxes and work in stereotypical female jobs like nursing.
@Joeharbor "Feminism has given women the right to vote"No, if anyone, I credit suffragists with that. Suffragettes were clearly a parasite along for the ride."criminalized sexual harassment in the workplace."Civil rights, movement.Feminism just a parasite along for the ride, trying to implement it's own agenda. During the second wave, the label caught on in the mainstream, but that doesn't mean that everyone actually reflected the feminist agenda. This is just the shit they do, the point is to align themselves with real movements and get everyone to adopt their label effectively allowing control over those people. This is why people argue constantly over what "real" feminism is now: because they wanted you to call yourself feminist so that when they do their true feminist work you support it blindly without questioning. That's why being against sexual harassment slowly morphed into things like "believe all women". It's this insidious mission creep."It has allowed women to work in primarily male jobs like marketing and finance."Nope. Again, civil rights and liberalism. Not feminism.But this is the parasitic nature I'm talking about. It latches on to real movements and then speaks loudly so that it looks like it speaks for everyone else. Then they can push for awful things and people who don't know any better just go along with it, they get to claim these ignorant people as feminists act like they have more support than they really do. Not to mention all the donations, feminism is a big business.The reason we get into these discussions about what it means is because it tried to latch onto social justice but didn't realise that social justice is the same kind of toxic as itself. They fed off each other and revealed themselves to be completely fucked. That's why it seems different *now*, because it didn't have a good host to latch onto and mask itself behind.
Women are parasites? Dude, you need to get laid lol How about you enjoy our male privallege and go on a fuck spree. After all, girls can't do it or they'll be slut shamed, but we can 😂
@Joeharbor "Women are parasites"Point to where I said that. Oh wait, you can't, because I didn't.How about you try a bit of intellectual honesty next time."How about you enjoy our male privallege and go on a fuck spree. After all, girls can't do it or they'll be slut shamed, but we can"You're shaming me AS YOU SAY THAT, so obviously that's nonsense.See Asker? This is the caliber of degeneracy and ineptitude that "true" feminism breeds in it's hosts.
"feminism is parasites" it's a women's movement. You insult women by saying that.How do I insult you by telling you to get laid?
*You* equated feminism to women. I just spoke about the ideology. Feminism doesn’t speak for all women. They’re their own people and make up their own minds.One of the ways in which it’s insulting is that you’re suggesting I have privileges that I don’t and that I exploit them, and also shame women.
I never said all women are feminists. But you seem very angry at feminists. I've read male rights activist websites and not only are their "facts" false, but the followers seem to bash women

Thank you, great answer
Highlights from that article:========I used to think the word “feminist” reeked of insecurity. A woman who needed to state that she was equal to a man might as well be shouting that she was smart or brave. If you were, you wouldn’t need to say it. I thought this because back then, I was a Swedish woman....It turned out most of America didn’t think of sex as a healthy habit or a bargaining tool. Instead, it was something secret. If I mentioned masturbation, ears went red. Orgasms? Men made smutty remarks, while women went silent. There was a fine line between the private and the shameful. A former gynecologist spoke of the weather when doing a pelvic exam, as if I were a Victorian maiden who’d rather not know where all my bits were.In America, a woman’s body seemed to belong to everybody but herself. Her sexuality belonged to her husband, her opinion of herself belonged to her social circles, and her uterus belonged to the government. She was supposed to be a mother and a lover and a career woman (at a fraction of the pay) while remaining perpetually youthful and slim. In America, important men were desirable. Important women had to be desirable. That got to me....But the American woman is told she can do anything and then is knocked down the moment she proves it. In adapting myself to my new country, my Swedish woman power began to wilt. I joined the women around me who were struggling to do it all and failing miserably. I now have no choice but to pull the word “feminist” out of the dusty drawer and polish it up.My name is Paulina Porizkova, and I am a feminist.Paulina Porizkova, a former supermodel, is the author of the novel “A Model Summer.”
You are right. America is much harder on women than Europe. It's okay to degrade a woman in our culture. Rap lyrics and cat calls do a good job of it
