    To me, feminism can be summed up with this quote;
    `
    `


    "Men, their rights and nothing more.
    Woman, their rights and nothing less
    ."

    With that being said, I can see why women would be annoyed. I mean, when you step back and realize that more women are graduating then men at this point, and there's still an imbalance in many positions between men and women, despite their also being a 50/50 split with women.

    Modern feminism is about fighting for women to have all the benefits of being a man, and none of the drawbacks.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I'm actually referring to college graduation rates, as that would lead to higher paying jobs.

    While you are spot-on with the female graduation rates in college; The Rise of Women: Seven Charts Showing Women's Rapid Gains in Educational Achievement, that doesn't always translate to higher paying jobs per se.

    But shouldn't it? I mean, let's say that those rates hold in law school degrees. Shouldn't we also see a similar result when looking at new hires into said industry? I mean, if the goal is to hire the best that is.

    It should, in theory. But in a real world, women and minorities still have the figurative "glass ceiling" to contend with, although it has been slowly breaking down for women.

    Ah - I see. Well I interpret things differently. I think some women try to push 'same' - but I disagree with that just like you. It doesn't take a brain-child to look in the mirror or observe men and women on a daily basis and see we're different.

    'Equality' - to me - is a matter of being treated equal in various ways by people like employers [when we're assigned and accomplish the same tasks] and the law [here the law just can't make up its mind - drunk sex, for example, is unfairly applied to men and women, giving man this concept of 'authority' or 'superior states of inebriation' in which they're held more responsible for their actions]. But beyond things like that, it's case-by-case, depending on the interpretation and application of that term.

    Anything that tries to diminish femininity and undervalue my choices I've made as a stay at home mother offend me to the utmost and don't represent feminism - but it furthers a prejudice against women. I've probably bitched about that more in my life than anything else, as well as how poorly many women who are 'uber-feminist' look down on males.
