You assume all men work hard
However, WOMEN DO HAVE TO WORK.
it takes TWO incomes to Scrape by. Thus, working is not an option but a requirment - Thank you greedy government and capitalism.
Again, it was MEN that brought in those laws.
And it was MEN that upheld those laws.
If they opposed those laws so much, why didnt they refuse to fight?
Muhammed ali did the same thing, gave up the best years of his boxing career because he didnt want to fight.
Are you saying muhammed ali should have been stripped of all property and had what few rights he had at that time removed from him?
The irony of this statment is that it was brought in AFTER feminists demanded it. But by all means, men should demand it. It takes two to raise a child.
I dont agree with Quotas. The best person for the job should get the job.
Your saying, that because a woman is not forced to go and fight wars, she should not be entitled to own property?
Despite the fact that she helped give that country its male population in the first place, with which, if they did not have those men, they wouldnt be fighting at all?
Basicly, because women dont make better soilders, so they should be penalized for it?
And back in WW2 the women SURPRISINGLY didnt sit about all day wondering how the war was going. No, they were busy in factorys working 14hr shifts doing mens jobs
But yeah, because women werent dying via a physcial conflict, she constributed nothing to the war and thus should not own property. O.o Yeah, feminists were crazy.
I think that men should be a little bit more greatful for the opposite sex.
You can't handle the truth! lol Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom! You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives! You don't want the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall! You need me on that wall! We use words like "honor", "code", "loyalty". We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline! I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "Thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!
actually, the same spirit that drove feminism drove many other movements.....weakened the power or kings and popes, freed slaves, created the labor laws, ect.....
to despise feminism is to despise your own freedom....
the source comes from the same origin!
The law does not say he WAS NOT entitled to a prenup, HE is the fool for not taking one.
Though i personally dont agree that she should get 500million, in fact, I OPPOSE IT! 100%
I dont agree with it because i am all about Equality!
The system may have now have a slight biased which prefers women but as i said, get off your ass and start a movement.
If they did nothing to change it, it is because they were not in a power to do so.
When Elizabeth came to the throne she was not in the position to make or change laws as that right was removed with Charles the 2nd after the english civil war. After such a time, only parliment could create & change laws and women had no place in politics - thanks to, oh yes you've guessed it, Oppression! As a womans place was in the home, doing things god assigned to women such as obeying mens wishes.
Yes they are, THANKS TO FEMINISM!
try susan anthony, abigail adams, elizabeth stanton.....
and you didn't answer my question....
when was it when women didn't have to work...
gee at one time, it took the man, the wife, the kids, all working, earning whatever they could.....
then....that spirit I mentioned began to move.....
kings lost power, slaves were freed, labor laws were written, and well, it came time for women, and gee...somehow, things kind of faltered!!
It being 3.30 am in the morning i am not in the mood to continue to quote and reply so i must agree to disagree with your view.
I have found it particularly hard to find a middle ground with you, as BH once said, you keep moving the goalposts.
I feel ive made a perfectly sound argument and if it does not convince you that feminism is about equality and not the oppression of men then fine. You are entitled to your opinion and i shall respect that.
However, i do implore you to look further into the subject if only as a passing reassurance of your opinion.
I shall still be browsing this thread lol
What you *MEAN* to say... is Thanks to men for *ALLOWING* feminism to proceed
In that one line you just admitted women were oppressed.

Same here... Except I love women trying to justify expanding the powers of women, and not their responsibilities.
