Comment Re:Making satire of equal rights. (Score 1) 575

So, understanding that people are born with an upper hand in our society is irrational? Huh. I guess I would have assumed that any rational person would have seen this. You are right, feminism is an ideology. A very broad and diverse ideology that houses many different schools of thought. Many people disagree in the direction this ideology should go. But, they all agree that women, as a group, do not receive equal treatment. It serves as a vehicle to helping people attain equal treatment. Anti-racism is an ideology as well, but in reality, who would talk this badly about people who subscribe to anti-racist viewpoints? Honestly?

Wait, the idea that all people should have equal opportunity is a problem? Sure, it's not a race, but its a sex. I recognize that as a white male living in the United States makes me part of the privileged class. It's an "ideology" based on the FACTS that women are not given the same opportunities as men. Plain and simple. Women are (usually) born women, and (typically) have no say in the matter, putting it in the same playing field as racism. Your comparison to Islam is shallow and shortsighted.
