I don't like the look of that guy, looks like a shill so I'm not gonna be reading his horribly biased hit piece.
(Ok, I'm still gonna be reading it because the first paragraph caught my interest and I'm an info junkie but as far as you and me are concerned I never read it ok? And no I'm not an American.)
Feminists say they are for gender equality but whenever someone brings up the plight of men and various kinds of discrimination of men they view that as an attack on them and go on the offensive.
You can't dismiss the ideas because of the actions of a moron.
My only point is that it shouldn't be universally mocked by association- that just dismisses people rather than debating them.
You know, when taxes on tampons are deemed oppression and evidence of a patriarchy it pretty much proves that there really is no patriarchy and no oppression to speak of.
I wish these worthless journalists would just shut the hell up. They haven't performed their duty at all and the vast majority of the media is owned by the same globalist corporations, and I bet that includes The Guardian.
What moron? I don't know what moron has made me dismiss anything, did I mention anyone specifically? Some case? Either way, you're right. I can't, I can dismiss them because of the actions of millions and millions of morons however. You know, the whole millennial generation with their SJW ideas.
I don't follow. How did I do this?
Herodotus recounted an incident that happened in Asia Minor. This was an appeal from King Croesus, the king of Lydia to the Persian King. The Persian king wanted to kill all the males to keep them from revolting and what the defeated king proposed was to inculturate softness in order to make the people docile and servile; effeminacy was seen as the mark of a slave. These men are to be softened.
But let the Lydians be pardoned; and lay on them this command, that they may not revolt or be dangerous to you; then, I say, and forbid them to possess weapons of war, and command them to wear tunics under their cloaks and buskins on their feet, and to teach their sons lyre-playing and song and dance and huckstering (the word "retail" in one translation). Then, O King, you will soon see them turned to women instead of men; and thus you need not fear lest they revolt
Feminism has accomplished its goal. Women were equal even in the 90's, now they're just pandering for special rights.
It's been co-opted by social engineers and globalists to further their agenda.
