What's wrong with calling yourself a feminist?


People like Amanda Marcotte are the reason why many have an issue with calling themselves feminists . . .
Amanda Marcotte


In January 2007, Marcotte wrote controversial statements about the Duke lacrosse case.[12][13][14] A few months before all charges were dropped in the case, on a blog post titled "Stuck at the airport again....." Marcotte wrote in part, "Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair." The post attracted criticism, mentioned in The New York Times.[15] Marcotte later deleted the post.[16]


There are many, many more people with equally insulting and aggressive views acting as voices for the feminist community so it should really come as no surprise.



However Obama's remarks were in light of a women's empowerment convention so it makes sense that he and Biden would be voicing the standard rhetoric in their pander campaign.

Utter fail.

It's wrapped around my hand on a string.

I am not sure 'a pat on the back' accurately describes what happened to Larry Sinclair and, perhaps, Donald Young for having sex with Obama.

Some of the worse sluts I've ever known are men.


As a younger man I was, by any accepted definition, a slut. I accept it, and live with the guilt. Every Freakin' Day!

not to the same degree, and the effects are slightly different.

Even in social context it makes men more aware of competition while it makes women more aware of friendly encounters.

estrogen and ocytocin synergize while testosterone and ocytocin do not.

By your logic all white people are racist because of Dylan Roof.

According to Wikipedia


Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve equal political, economic, personal, and social rights for women.


I have no problem with the POTUS's statement about shaming women, and no problem with the definition of feminism either.

While Isis Terrorism is on the rise, The President (who refuses to call them what they are, Islamic Terrorists), tosses out stupid meaningless posts from his comfy chair, ignoring the People of the USA completely and addressing their real Concerns.

Real Classy...

Noted but I fail to see how it makes casual sex bad for women. Plenty of women do it and don't walk around in tears all the time.

No, that seems to be your logic actually.

Have you heard of the ambivalent sexism scale?
Ambivalent Sexism Scale

Ambivalent Sexism Revisited

The body of gender research, cited by feminists, is based on the theory that all men are sexist as evidenced by the most prominent scale to measure sexism. This scale defines the taker as sexist ( regardless of their answers ) and merely labels them as hostile or benevolent.

The survey even equates 'Feminism' with women in question seven, meaning that women as a group are lumped into the same category.

This is the most widely cited academic survey for diagnosing sexism used and engages in mass stereotyping, thus I would argue that the logic is indeed yours.

Another illogical conclusion. I don't think all white people are racist nor do I think all men are sexist. You used one woman to explain why feminism is bad... don't piss on foot and tell me it's raining.

I used one woman as an example and then expanded to the most cited measure of declaring men sexists in support of the justification of why many people do not want to identify as feminists.



There are many, many more people with equally insulting and aggressive views acting as voices for the feminist community so it should really come as no surprise.

If you disagree with the consensus opinion of feminists then that is your prerogative, I was merely providing further justification of my initial claim.

Why is the President of the USA making comments about sex all the time? When Yazidi women just a few days ago were allegedly, put into cages and torched for refusing to be sex slaves for them.

This gets the attention of the Leader of the free world? Really?

I can't wait for his term to be over. Just shameful.

Yes, we actually do pay for him for this. He was speaking at the White House Summit on the State of Women. He is expeted to attend the event and to speak at it.

Get real...he did respond on tv to all the online comments and his opponents what difference does it make using the verbiage "radical islamic terrorist"...it has no military baring or advantage what so ever to the war against terrorism. Really immature and nonsensical thing to complain about.
