    Not overtly... but yes, in an effort to normalize things like transgender they turn a psychological disorder into something normal. Abnormal does not make it wrong or bad, just abnormal. It is a disorder or delusion, either way it is abnormal.

    Wrong. A delusional abnormal disorder is listed as normal and some hyperactivity and attention span issues is listed as a disorder. It is disrespectful to treat kids like that has having a disorder when men dress up like women with make-up, hormone therapy and breast construction and that is not a disorder. It isn't just disrespectful. It is dishonest bull**** that screams of idiocy. People that buy that crap are brainwashed fools that have been victimized by the pc epidemic that sweeps across this nation.

    No, sir. I am a feminist, and I never stood for the treatment of Palin. Please don't confuse feminists with "feminazis," a tiny but strident minority. And don't forget that it has only been within our lifetimes, that women working outside the home and having careers and earning equal pay for equal work has become acceptable. Dammit.

    this entire notion of trans "delusions" is false. trans people have existed throughout the history of humanity across multiple cultures

    kids with adhd get medicated, maybe put in different classes while trans people face employment and housing discrimination not to mention a huge amount of animosity by society at large. so yes, apples to oranges

    Why should feminists not be openly hostile towards Palin? Feminists are in favor of bodily autonomy as it pertains to abortion and Palin is not. Her position of authority and influence poses a threat to abortion rights

    And equal pay. Just because she is female does not make her a champion of the interests of most women.

    People these days can't deal with the way the world actually is, so they need their pc tent of bull**** to protect them.

    Why are either sex owed equal pay to that of the other sex? What about my right as an employer to pay people what I see fit? Why are people acting like my rights in this transaction don't exist? I'm serious, why do you ignore my rights?

    The point at the time she accepted the VP nomination was that she was attacked within HOURS by the scurrilous rumor that she was not her baby's mother but, rather, his grandmother, and by dubbing her "Caribou Barbie" because she was attractive. This remains a problem for female politicians, who are continually criticized for their looks when men (with the notable exception of Chris Christie) aren't.

    Re: What is Modern Feminism about?

    What about how feminists act like employers have to hire X amount of women? Why do I not have the right to choose if I hire men or women only? Tell me, why do you get to make the terms on which I will agree? Then I dare you to talk about body autonomy again. Because it's obvious to me you don't know what it means.

    there exists a societal propensity towards devaluing and marginalizing women. including women politicians. i know this. men who engage in it are gross. but that doesnt change the fact that she was a threat

    having more women politicians isnt going to change that much
