Abby Rockefeller (b. 1943) — The eldest and most rebellious daughter (Of David Rockefeller), she was drawn to Marxism, was an ardent admirer of Fidel Castro and a late 60's/early 70's radical feminist who belonged to the organization Female Liberation, later forming a splinter group called Cell 16. An environmentalist and ecologist, and an active supporter of the Women's Liberation movement, she also funded Ramparts, a left-wing magazine.

So, if they really ARE for true Equality, we should start by Addressing the CURRENT INEQUALITIES, which would be the Feminine Privileges that Females in the western world Enjoy.

The women that have been very vocal within these threads in support of the current system are the women of today who are aware of it imo.Some have made it so damn hard for myself to even treat as a woman.
Now if women were so hard done by and oppressed by men in the years gone by,why then were families stronger than today? sounds like the lesser of two evils to me when concerning laws,though I believe the vast majority of men in years gone by loved their wives,these feminists will say otherwise,just watch an old movie,women were still treated as something precous and to be loved cherrished and protected.

I'm not entirely sure that's true of some of the younger women; many people grow up just accepting any unquestioned social norms.
I'm still a young( ish ) man that grew up in the 1990s
, and I just ''went with the flow'' with most social issues, not really questioning things such as abortion, child support etc. It wasn't that I necessarily actively agreed with them, but I didn't disagree with them.
So, I think it's likely that most younger women aren't intentionally upholding these double standards, but are just living their lives without questioning them.
The finger of blame should be pointed at the older women who went through the feminist ''struggle'', and have seen the tide turning, while knowingly accepting that the pendulum has swung too far the other way, but still perpetuate the unfairness of these issues by accepting and supporting the double standards that are intended entirely to benefit their gender.
can we change it? doubt it.

Yes, some people SHOULD be screened before becoming parents. And since you can't pick them out of a lineup, that means ALL parents should be screened. Just. In. Case.

For someone to claim that one gender is smarter or more powerful than the other is a sign of gross insecurity. And not AT ALL what this thread is about.
