Comment: Re:Feminist bullshit (Score 0) 950

Who are the prominent feminists that you're talking about? I can't think of a single one that has said that confidence is a negative trait, in men or women. Quite the reverse, actually: people who are secure in themselves do not need to demonize others to support their self-worth. That goes for other genders, other religions, and other political views. If a woman turns you down for a date and you're self-confident, you shrug your shoulders and pick someone else: it's the men who are not self-confident who are likely to call her a "dyke" or a "frigid bitch".

Every political movement has its radical nutjobs who get a lot of press because they're radical nutjobs. Judging feminism by the nutjobs is like judging all Republicans by Glenn Beck, or all Christians by the Westboro Baptist Church.

I have been dating a politically active feminist for over twenty-five years now, and I count a number of self-identified feminists (some academics) among my friends and family for longer than that. Some are lesbian, some are bi, but most self-identify as straight and have successful, self-confident husbands. I imagine that all of them would roll their eyes at the phrase "feminist agenda" or a "gay agenda". Those aren't real things. They're just scare words.

The next time you want to post a broad, bigoted claim that covers well over a billion people, at least have the courage to do so with your own account instead of AC. If you're afraid of the repercussions of doing so, maybe you should stop and ask yourself why there would be repercussions in the first place.

All of those testimonies against Rappe were also unproven allegations and rumors. Your own source makes that clear.

You seem to find it easy to vigorously defend a man's reputation against unfounded allegations, but you call a woman a hooker or "too close to call" based on... no such allegations. Interesting.

A triangle which has an angle of 135 degrees is called an obscene triangle.
