I've been avoiding this thread because it's a horrible wreck that should be locked up tight and buried under Yucca Mountain but god dammit.
Equal pay for equal work, no glass ceiling, the right to do with one's body as one wishes, not being blamed for being raped, etc. -- how are these at all controversial?
You say you don't see any feminists asking for equality and the theoretical ones that do don't mean it. I say you don't see any feminists at all, and this is all conjecture, leaping at shadows that aren't there. You say the "massive majority" of feminists you know -- and that's hyperbole if I've ever seen it -- have been the kind who don't want equality so much as to bury men in the foundation of a women's shelter. How many of these people have you actually met? Three? You need to realize that with any school of thought -- political, social, whathaveyou -- there are going to be people who don't fully understand what they're talking about and so just repeat the loudest talking points as if that makes them experts. The libertarian movement is filled with these people.
If you've even read my posts in this thread (doubtful, since most people are are just looking for an echo chamber and skip the posts they might disagree with) you'd know that while the "radfem" subset of feminism does exist, it's a very small minority that is doing nothing to stop opponents -- for example conservative males, especially if running for office -- from using them as a scapegoat to vilify all of feminism. That you've bought into the "all feminists are radicals who want to subjugate men for breeding and meat" line -- how fucking gullible are you?
Here, since you missed it, here's an important fact about why behaviour of men towards women has more focus in feminism:
MEN ARE IN POWER, WOMEN AREN'T.
This isn't fucking rocket science. Hell, it's been explained in this very thread. Like the song says, it's a man's world. Our society is systematically designed to keep down anyone who isn't in the majority, in this case women but also ethnic and religious minorities. Hate a man, you hate alone, hate a woman and the world hates with you. And it's not some mysterious Deus Exian cabal of frat boys and pre-teen XBL members behind it, but plain, simple, cyclic ignorance and mean-spiritedness handed down to the next generation. The majority of men don't realize they're perpetuating it and have been taught to perpetuate it through their upbringing and the culture and media around them; many of them wouldn't care anyway because why should they? It's not their problem, or so they think. But we're going back into material I've already covered that you'd know already if your head wasn't too far up your self-righteous ass to actually read my damn posts.
