    If the term has lost it's edge, it's because it's employed where it's unwarranted. As discourse into gender equality extends beyond the need for it, expect that the term will fade completely, to include any and all expression of mundane triviality. Anything from litigation over 'Mother Christmas' costumes, to workplace disputes about the appropriateness of screen savers.

    The war is over (not that there ever was one). There remain only those for whom such a state of affairs remains desirable. And politically profitable.

    Thankfully, awareness is finally catching up to the reality.

    I'll fight you, Josie. Not that I really want to, but I could take you a few rounds if you're in the mood.

    So I have to ask, are there women who are actively engaging in and supporting the "war on women"?

    Some of us call them feminists.

    There must be a war, right? Or what are they doing here?

    There must be a war, or there can be no 'victims'.

    Feminists are hard-core pro-life, anti SSM, anti women in the workforce?
    Feminists think a woman's place is barefoot in the kitchen and pregnant?
    Feminists think a woman should be seen and not heard?

    Feminists are pro-victim. Simply that. This is the currency in which they trade. Where no victim is found, one must be invented.

    As for the last two, you are aware no one actually thinks that, right? Not men. Not women. No one. See what I mean?

    Btw, are you a woman? If you'd prefer to leave that undisclosed, then cool.

    this is true of all social advocacy groups from femenists to social conservatives.

    war on women
    war on chistmas
    war on the poor
    war on the rich
    war on gay people
    war on traditional marriage
    war on fetuses
    war on women's rights
    the list goes on and on.

    in all cases, its just people advocating what they think is right while the other sides sees that same advocacy as a war on them.

    Agreed. But where one advocates any issue where victimisation is inherent, it places it on a level beyond feminism, where such victims are fictional constructs only.

    Spot the odd one out.

    The others actually exist.
