Christ, how offensive do you want to be?

What's the need to have a pop at the model


That's exactly the point i'm trying to make


How can you claim to be a real feminist when you treat the model woman like that?



I was only stating the obvious, did you watch the same video I did?


You are the one being offensive. Seems to me that you feel threatened by intelligent women.

I don't see how LT was being offensive? By preferring the intelligent response that digresses from the OPs opinion is classified as offensive. Thats not how open and effective discourse takes place.

The fact she felt the need to mock and belittle the model was telling.

And i'm not scared of intelligent women, I'm sacred of angry aggressive women who hate men and the girly women they see as inferior to them.

I have no doubt there are billions of women who are more intelligent than me in every way and it bothers me not one bit.

Some of us are happy to admit we're not the smartest person in the room and have no problem with it.

A feminist campaigner helped get a famous woman on a banknote. This lead to a frenzy of rage from a lot of very angry and obviously sick men. I say sick because the fact that something like this could make a man get very angry must indicate he has some sort of mental issue.

I don't know what gibberish you are spouting in the above section. The fact is that the campaigner received a huge amount of abuse on Twitter from many sad little angry men. The woman also received some very serious threats. This has resulted in a man being arrested today as a result of these threats.
www.bbc.co.uk...

People need to learn that you cannot threaten to rape or kill someone on Twitter just like you cannot do it walking down the street.

Why are you scared of them? How do you think they will affect you personally?

Hold on we are already slaves.

that's it, that's the one thing that really confuses me.

it's how nasty they can be to other women.

I was just watching bbc breakfast and the feminist campaigner was not very nice at all to the model woman.

no word of a lie, she looking at the model as though she was a piece of dirt whilst saying "we hate people who treat woman like dirt"

one of the most bizarre things i've ever seen.


What part of the video was this?

I must have missed it

This 'New' Feminism you highlight, is just another natural progression IMO.

Women in the Western World have been 'Inferior' for a Millenia...

Did you think we wouldn't bite back?

I don't see her behaviour as angry nor threatening. I think the OP is overreacting to say the least. I'd sit down with her and have a cuppa and a natter

Now let me just clarify my position before i start on my 'rant'.

I'm not against the traditional feminists who are after equality, i'm on about the new band of feminists who want dominance over men and the other women they deem to be inferior.

They've been all over the news in Britain for the last few days because of getting Jane Austin on a bank note.

The traditional feminists who would see this as a nice victory and a step towards true equality has been muscled out of the way by a new type of openly man hating and rather aggressive type of feminist as they celebrate this 'victory' in the face of everyone who is willing to listen.

They way this is being celebrated is to try to take over twitter and every television show that will let them on to be loud, aggressive and intimidating to anyone who is too scared to stand up to them.

It's no longer a case of sticking up for women for these people, it's about something a lot more sinister.

Accusations of 'rape' and 'rapist' are thrown around willy nilly (i have no idea how you can rape someone over twitter but hey ho) and other outrageous threats and accusations are leveled at anyone who questions their motives.

I personal feel very intimidated and threatened by these women, yet feel i would be laughed out of town in the real world if i were to mention it to anyone. these women really are very scary individuals though and i'm sure they'd go to any lengths to get their way.

I feel nervous just making this thread but need to make this thread to see if others are equally intimidated.



This is hilarious. One woman writes to the bank of England saying they should put a woman on their bank notes and suddenly all men are under attack from radical feminism


For those of you outside of the UK, our bank notes (50's,20's,10's and 5's) Are dominated by male figures. There was a woman on the £5 notes but they decided they were going to change this and put Winston Churchill on them instead - I had no problem with this.
However, the woman who suggested that they should have another woman instead of Winston Churchill was ignored by the bank of England originally (Dominated by men btw)

Anyway, they eventually came around to the idea and now our £5 notes will feature Jane Austin - All the other notes (50's, 20's and 10's) will still have male figures on them. So, how does this equate to "radical feminism" ? The people we put on these notes are suppose to represent the best bits of britian and its history. Would be silly to assume that women were not apart of that.

Also i'd like to add my dismay at this women receiving death threats and even threats of rape. What is all that about? Frigging man-nazi's getting their knickers in a twist over something trivial.

People were getting accused of being rapists for simply disagreeing with that woman.

You should read her twitter timeline


She accused someone of being a rapist because they made a joke about her getting back in the kitchen.

If you think that's acceptable I'm lost for words.

It's very disrespectful to real rape victims for a start.

I've already answered that.

I don't like the fact I'll be judged based on my sex.

I don't like the aggressiveness of it all.

I don't like the way other woman are judged.

Radical feminism and its mercenary lackey liberalism will have collapsed western civilisation all the way back to the Stone Age long before then. When that happens the men will be the ones that will be doing the rebuilding.

is this what you are referring to?




A man has been arrested after a feminist campaigner was deluged on Twitter with abuse and threats of rape, Scotland Yard has confirmed. The 21-year-old was detained earlier in the Manchester area on suspicion of harassment offences. Caroline Criado-Perez faced abuse after successfully campaigning for a woman's face to appear on UK banknotes. Labour has complained to Twitter about what it says was an "inadequate response" to the abuse. Ms Criado-Perez, who had appeared in the media to campaign for women to feature on banknotes, said the abusive tweets began the day it was announced that author Jane Austen would appear on the newly designed £10 note. She reported them to the police after receiving "about 50 abusive tweets an hour for about 12 hours" and said she had "stumbled into a nest of men who co-ordinate attacks on women".

I can understand your personal opinion of "not liking it" but to be afraid of it??? Im asking in reply to your fear of 'angry women'. Not what you like or not. I want you to think about why you are afraid of them, I don't think you have a reason to be.

many threats were made. were made against this woman.

the simple fact is that a 21 year old man has been arrested today for threatening to rape her.

you seem to be trying to dismiss or ignore this fact and i can only guess you are some sort of troll yourself.

Women are not equal to men and they never will be. Women are DIFFERENT to men, it is obvious. We are two different sexes.

I do not trust feminism slightly. It is unbalancing society. I do not like what western societies have become. It is full of loneliness for men and women. It is a game that has gone too far.

Feminists are not behaving according to nature. They are disturbing nature.

On here I read quotes like men are not as clever as women. That is garbage. I challenge any woman here. I do not fear any man or woman and cannot be intimidated by this kind of behaviour.

Life is not nice anymore. It is going to get even more horrible. The authorities are encouraging it because they do not want women to be women anymore. They want them making money like good little BUSINESS BATTERIES.

I have never abused a woman. I have never cheated on a woman. I am not popular with women even slightly. So where is the reasoning in that? I am not fooled by feminism. It is not nice, kind men that women want. Those kind of women are unnatural. They are interested in power games. Keep far away from me. Those kind of women are totally unattractive to men. Perhaps that is the way they want it.

This kind of feminism is unbalancing us and making a mess of lives. It is not my fault some men behave like animals. They make every man out to be a monster.

Infact, things are much worse now for women. So many single women with children are living in poverty. Watch out, it is only going to get worse. Look at all the internet porn these days. Are feminists fighting that? Nope! They are just attacking the men. It is very negative.

Keep far away from me. I have no interest in such tactics and it will all end in tears. Of that I am 100% sure!

Yes, you are free to do as you wish. Do as you wish and see where it leads. Nature is more powerful than we think.
