    "Don't look at, talk to, or sexualize us in any way (unless we want you to, which you're just supposed to read our minds about, apparently) or else you're an evil sexist who's oppressing women through harassment" seems to be the overall gist of the message here.

    Frankly, even besides that, the other major issue is that they're not willing to address the root causes of the problem anyway; namely our horndog "anything goes" culture, and the depraved ideas about sex, courtship, and acceptable social behavior it tends to give a lot of young men.

    At the end of the day, the only aim of this nonsense is to rile up women, and try and make men who actually don't misbehave feel bad about their gender, so they'll both be more likely to support feminist ideological and legislative causes. The kinds of men who actually are guilty of this kind of misogynistic crap, quite frankly, don't give a damn.
    That's more militant feminism though. Women who hate men, and espouse radical thoughts like that are militant feminists. I don't listen to them because their rhetoric and arguments are bunk straight out of the gate. I prefer to pay attention to the women who believe that they should be treated equally with men and that they should be paid the same for equal work and that reproductive choices are up to the woman. Black and white. Freedom and equality. That's real feminism. What you're showcasing is the jihadist version of feminism, in other words, don't listen to that trash, man, because it's trash, man.

    I absolutely agree with you.

    I'm simply pointing out where this current campaign is coming from in the first place. It's not coming from "moderate" feminists, but the extreme variety.

    Make no mistake, there is an agenda at play behind it.

    Of course there is. But who cares? If they ever manage to destabilize the order of things, uh, well, men are stronger than women. We have the technology to rebuild

    Delusions of grandeur? I'm not the one needing to deny sexism and racism in order to not feel bad about my sex and race.

    See my edits to the post you quoted and see if they help you understand how ridiculous it is base ones self worth on group identity.

    Then you're being played for a fool.

    The radical feminists and race baiters very much do subscribe to notions of "group identity," and you, ultimately, are not "part of the club."

    They'll use your support to further their own agenda, and casually toss you aside afterwards.

    Gath is misrepresenting what S&M posted, as she noted earlier:

    He presented what appeared to be a scenario and then broke it up into pieces to misrepresent her post. She was responding to the scenario he appeared to present and not an individual piece of it.

    No, she point blank told me that simply going up to a girl I found to be attractive, politely introducing myself, asking for her number, and then taking "no" for an answer and walking away afterwards when she made it clear that she was not interested, constituted "harassment."

    Read her posts.

    You really don't understand it's about society and not women or blacks, do you. You only understand politics from a position of an exclusive group working towards its own benefit? How myopic.
