    What is Modern Feminism about?

    So what does everyone think about Modern Feminism?

    I personally think it is not about about equal rights for women but more a movement to bring down men and make women superior to men in the eyes of the law.

    I'd venture to say that modern feminism isn't significantly different than feminism during past years. The same objectives, only met with different, albeit lesser (in the Western world) challenges

    Are there any legislative examples you could point to in order to support this notion?

    Well modern feminism is not just equality for men and women but for all genders, there are still many economic and social issues of equality that need to be dealt with.

    A movement to bring down men?

    I'm a feminist by the basic concepts but I'm not a mysandrist [hating / opposing men] nor am I anti-feminine [opposing 'feminine' or 'girly' things] - I know that a number of women do spite or oppose men, going so far as to being intentionally ignorant or misleading about women and our roles in modern life and history in order to paint a more dire patriarchal image - but that's not representative of me or countless other women.

    The reason why modern feminism [quote un-quote] is so fractured is because many of the 'fights' that united women and drove us to push boundaries and challenge the law have been won. Now we're left with - what - trite differences? Nothing, really. A few cases of unequal pay - but mostly it's individualized. 'These few men here - these few women here' hold values that are in opposition to feminism / etc.

    Women can't decide what's what. We're not a unified face or voice with some singular, community purpose. Some women spite working moms who put their kids in daycare, others spite the woman who put aside being a wife and a mother in order to pursue a degree, and yet others spite the woman who identifies with any conservative values regardless of what they are.

    Thus ushering in a mass of confusion - how can we expect "men to understand" when women themselves don't understand much of the madness, either? And the mysandrists and the anti-feminine have made such a loud stink that young girls are opposing the very word 'feminism' because the meaning has been lost over the din of buffoonery.

    So - I used to be bothered that guys didn't 'get feminism' until I realized that there is no one unified 'feminism voice'. The more insulting and offensive views seem to be voiced the loudest OR at least noticed more and thus they take the cake.

    White flags - whatever. Just don't cross the line and oppose my basic rights as human and an American citizen. Respect, fair treatment in the eyes of the law like the right to vote . . . simple stuff to me, really.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I don't have much of a problem with them. Second wave feminists were the scary ones, but they are all dying off at this point. This new generation of feminists doesn't seem to be as much of a problem.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.

    A lot of "feminists" would be more honest if they called themselves "female supremacists."

    If all you want to convey is that you believe that men and women should be treated equally - and well, of course they should, as we're all created equal - then why not use a term that is not slanted towards one gender?

    I like "gender equitist," personally.

    my thoughts?... well, as a man, i'm the inherent and declared "enemy" of feminists... so I mostly ignore them.
