leading feminist writer has accused Taylor Swift and Katy Perry of killing feminism and throwing society back to the 'demure girly-girl days of the white-bread 1950s'. Camille Paglia says that both singers have 'insipid, bleached-out personas' that hark back to the man-pleasing, pre-feminist era.
She notes that Rihanna, who earned $53 million last year, has an 'elemental erotic intensity', while Beyonce draws on the 'emotional depths of black gospel as well as the brazen street sass of hip-hop'. She also cites Fifties U.S. singer Connie Francis, who was between 19 and 21 when she made her mammoth hits like Lipstick on Your Collar and Stupid Cupid as a role model.

US judge prompts outrage after saying: ‘If she didn’t want sex, her body should have just shut down’ in rape case, and reducing sentence of attacker by ten years
Judge Johnson was making the comments in the case of a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver
A US judge has prompted outrage after saying that a rape victim didn't put up a fight during her assault and that if someone doesn't want sex, the body 'will not permit that to happen.'
Judge Derek Johnson's comments, which echo those of outgoing U.S. representative Todd Akin, who used the phrase 'legitimate rape' and said women who are the victims of rape rarely get pregnant, have drawn widespread condemnation.
Judge Johnson was making the comments in the case of a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver. The man also beat her with a metal baton and made violent threats before committing rape and forcing oral copulation.
Does it mean we should give up all things feminine and use our sexuality to get ahead in life?
There is nothing wrong with embracing your femininity.

I feel that feminism and feminists have done more than any man could do to marginalize me, label me, and put even more constraints on me in private and professional life. If you aren't with a feminist you are a traitor to your sex, deluded, part of the problem, and any number of disparaging things.

This to me sound like a group of freedom fighters. in a place where they are more free than ever and getting more free than than before, And in A lot of respect have way more power over MEN!
If your not apart of the solution your part of the problem!
This sort of barbaric behaviour is designed to get people violent and rowdy, we all know that violence isn't the solution. Making people whose sides is stupid and childish. Common i though feminism was more intelligent that that.
It seams to me that feminism want power and control some sort of pay back. Pay back for what?
Most men born these days have not been subject to the acts of what a man should tell a woman what they should do, like it was 100 YEARS AGO!!!
But still this power house of a vehicle wants blood, power, forced respect, apologies and control of everything.....
To me that is a gang not group or a movement

If you arent with a feminist you are a traitor to your sex, deluded, part of the problem, and any number of disparaging things.They wish to attach themselves to movements such as the fight for womens right to vote, own businesses, etc... so they can smear some borrowed legitimacy on themselves. Feminists are so close to the patriarchs they hate so much its frightening.
Just in my experience and opinion, I am VERY offended by women who demand I behave and live like they believe a man does in order to be a woman. I truly believe they have a warped sense of themselves and push it on the rest of us.
There are many older cultures in the US ( not that this is a US problem alone, France has been rocked by feminism as well as other Western countries) that have matriarchal societies and there is no hint of feminism. The problem with feminists IMO is their hunger for control, wallowing self worth, and complete lack of understanding concerning functional societies.
In my parents culture.. and I call it this as I was not born or raised on the rez as they were.. there is a distinct difference in Plains societies than other tribes and certainly different than modern Western society. Women had a place everywhere in the culture, from the wife and mother to the warrior and leader. Each aspect of women AS HUMAN BEINGS were recognized along with men. Both sexes are celebrated and recognized as EQUALLY contributing members for the whole society to function and flourish. Functional societies recognize recognize and seek balance. Feminists seek imbalance. Equality or balance demands responsibility, accountability, and self reliance... feminists dont seem to be acquainted with these concepts and wish to go through life hiding behind and exploiting their vaginas in their pursuit of control.. and special snowflakedom.
Please listen to this series and whole discussion by Means open minded.. and see what it can be. A feminist will listen to this and other discussions concerning this and come away with a totally different understanding unfortunately.. and wont investigate further into the concept. This is one small example of the concept of a functioning society that existed and exists previous to modern and failing societies.
