All women should be feminists isn't the same as all women are feminists.

Remember, as I've tried to highlight this point numerous times, I'm speaking about the literature. I'm speaking about the ideas. If you don't know what those are, there is a massive body of feminist literature you should look into. Because hey, maybe we should understand the ideologies we are advocating?

Everyone wants to see the equality of women in opportunity, but not everyone are feminists.

I apologize for going off topic.

Why would I be interested in Feminist literature?

I lived it. It's in my past. I now live today and look toward tomorrow.

This is far more interesting. Transgenders who've experienced the workplace as both genders.

I'm not necessarily interested in your life. If you want to speak in private about it, we may do so.

I think they do, but we're talking about a more technological job, some are not afforded that pleasure.

In the lower wage field it's different, even some skilled trade jobs, men are seen as stronger to perform certain tasks and jobs as opposed to women, I disagree with that.

The more educated we can become, in my opinion, as automation transforms the job force; gender specific work duties will regress. However, without education, or making it available to everyone for free, at some point, I think America will be lagging behind as technology surpasses low level workers.

LOL is that male arrogance speaking?

I did not bring Feminism into this discussion. I kept asking what it had to do with the subject of this thread.

YES! There we go.

Even the physical body is evolving for both physical genders. The need for "brawn and baby maker" bodies is becoming obsolete.

Some men love to blame women, but I think it's just a natural inevitable evolution.

Yes I would agree. With more labor intensive and technical jobs, men are seen as more likely to fill those jobs, but to convince women they need to go into those jobs is to also devalue the jobs they already do, and enjoy doing. I don't think male dominated fields is any sort of legitamite bar that we need to Convince women they need to raise to.

The OP



Powers has dubbed today’s intolerant purveyors of leftist causes the “the illiberal left” because, as a liberal herself, she sees them as anything but liberal about allowing a voice to those who don’t toe their rigid line. Her book catalogues and analyzes the dehumanization and demonization techniques the illiberal Left applies towards anyone who dares to veer from their rigid narratives. Their sacred cows include abortion, climate change, same-sex marriage, and second-wave feminism. Dissenters are systematically smeared and destroyed.


DOUBLE SPEAK much?

I grew up in an all white middle class Christian neighborhood ---- in the 50s. We were treated a bit as outcasts because my parents were divorced.

I was an odd child, a loner type, interested in philosophy and how things worked. I was/am an observer.

I've found the evolution of society fascinating ---- and moving in the right direction.

You don't take someone else's rights away by expressing your own.

However, sometimes Equal Rights has to be forced. Such as the Disability Act. Would you deny a military vet access to a restaurant because he made another customer uncomfortable?

AH but WE DO have examples of ALL of those WHO in fact ARE the EXACTLY as described don't we?
THERE are lazy selfish BLACK people who ONLY want to freeload.
Not the majority I have seen at all.
THERE ARE Christians who I PERSONALLY would love to palpate from the garbage they spew.
THE LGBT community are NOT all perverts despite those who are and get national attention with their indecent behavior and public nudity.
BUT NOT to call these people on this is a huge mistake,I WON'T make ,because IT MAKES the ones who don't act like this feel bad.
It is emboldening them TO DO more and THERE will be a back lash unless ALL of these people are NOT appropriately shunned.
P.C. feel good measures that insult our collective intelligeces are going to be changed.
BECOMING violent ISN'T possible for the left because they aren't very GOOD at collective violence and the ones who are on the right are QUITE subdued outside of the occasional NUT,who NO one seems to figure out they are broken minded, in order to push that P.C. agenda.

And usually right around pride month, when folks are accosted by the accidental glance at a shirtless man that they are absolutely certain is hitting on them.

Because Gay men will hit on anyone and everyone, that's why we can't be in sports lockers or actual in public.. we have no control...

I've been to several, and believe me you are absolutely wrong. lol

The perception of Pride parades is greatly exaggerated and seemingly by people who have not even been to one. In reality, there is maybe 10% of shirtless men, maybe 1% of those also in slightly revealing shorts.

A pride parade is absolutely no different to any night out in any major city on any weekend, the only difference is that it's women showing off some more flesh on those nights out, and the homophobic fanatics can't possibly disagree with that!

Here's the crux of the matter - if you are so desperately offended by what you see at a pride parade, DON'T GO TO ONE.

This notion that everything is being "forced" on you is absolute bs, and I'll even bet you claim to be a "libertarian" who believes in "freedom", but only the freedoms you agree with for the people who agree with you, right?
