Misinformed anti-feminst

It makes my blood boil when I read or see anything about women being involved in the anti-feminist campaign.

So sad it’s like we a betraying the sisterhood isn’t, but no I oh nothing to the feminists of now and I have the free choice to said where I want.

This makes no sense though? Women have been oppressed and subordinated since history has been recorded??????

I will never thrust my views onto anyone and I mainly turn a blind eye to a lot of the comments I’ve seen because I understand when to pick my battles.

That’s good. I don’t trust my views to anyone else either but I couldn’t turn a blind eye to the things feminists where doing so I choose to stand against it.

Again I don’t understand? What have all feminist done that is so wrong? That you choose to stand up against? Do my views threaten your ignorance that much?

However I’ve read statements from women and I quote “there are more important things in the world like people starving and war.”

Show me the link to the quote, but really this issues are more important and to everyone than the first world “problems” feminists cry about. Every if you want to boil it down women in the third world and not people those are what feminists should be worried about.

I don’t need to link you, open up a newspaper, the times, do a google search. War, education and famine impact all people but females more so. Males are and will always be favoured over females in all aspects of society and culture.

Well “anti-feminist” I don’t know if you’re aware of this but most of these issues affect WOMEN more then their male counterparts.

So go check your privilege and move to a third world country to help.

WOW. That is a pretty literal solution to a complex and sensitive issue. Clearly western intervention has done so much for developing states … the impacts are more detrimental than positive. That comment is pretty ignorant, you can’t just ‘move over to a third world country and help’, these people have not invited you to join their culture, the only way past these issues is to self empower communities and to resolve these issues is through self-determination.

Take for example female Dalits in India who are inadequate to men, are treat inhumanely and as subhumans, shovel shit in unfiltered sewage systems for $2 a day to provide food for their entire families and probably starve due to the lack of income they can provide to buy food.

Source because really from what I’ve seen no one has it that good in the slums

Thank you for disregarding the examples i just gave, above you’ve probably posted pictures of Dalit people, the untouchables. Indian society is built upon a caste system, which holds a hierarchy of class systems. If you didn’t already know, indian society is highly patriarchal, government and judiciary systems are thus dominated by men within society. Women on the other hand are most like subordinated,objectified and have limited rights across all classes in comparison to males. More specifically the women/girls you posted pictures have the least amount of rights and are probably exploited the most, traded as slaves in labour and sex, forced into arranged child marriages. Even in the 21st century female widowers in indian society are being burnt alive as a ‘sati’ ritual, if this does not scream OBJECTIFICATION & OPPRESSION then maybe you need to reevaluate your argument. Police corruption and male domination of governments keep women submissive and deter them from reporting crimes! But no, if you are a male , Dalit or not you have more more opportunity for class mobility then any female .. why because men and masculinity are favoured above females.

(I am writing this from an informed perspective, of having participated in cultural studies specific to Indian society and culture)

Or women in Afghanistan who because of war lords and such groups as the Taliban are denied the right to leave their homes without the company of a male, have no rights to education and subjected to abuse and mercy killings.

Men have very few right too but I see your point now get off you high horse and go do something other there, because nether you nor feminists is.

I am not speaking from a view of superiority .. but you are so uninformed. Aren’t you making assumptions about all feminist now?

To ignore WoC’s experiences and the ideology of feminism,

I’m half Mexican I know a number of anti feminists who are WoC aren’t you ignoring and white washing us? and no I’m not ignoring the ideology of feminism I’m picking it apart.

HAHAH! White washing? I AM ETHNIC, A PERSON OF COLOUR. A MINORITY. I speak from experience, I am informed from ethnic feminist literature and personalities, not to mention many of these issues have affected my family members being from a refugee background.Stop getting confused with western feminism, I am not privileged or white because I am a WoC.

to say you are not aware of the experiences of your sisters is a crime to your sex.

I’m not your sister I owe no no other women anything just because we are the same gender. But aren’t you ignoring experiences with feminists that have lead us to picking the side we have?

You can justify it all you want, wether they are your experiences or not ..

So it wouldn’t even matter if I was a women burned and raped and I said I don’t need feminism that I’m against it? I’m still wrong because I don’t matter all that matters is I would be stat for feminists to use or if I was feminists someone to be a victim for them

You’ve isolated this sentence and taken it out of context. This is a horrible example, I think more than anything feminism seeks to empower and support victims of rape not victim blame. If anything it empowers women from all walks of life and speaks against rape culture. I don’t understand what stats you are talking about?

None the less they are still relevant … You will wish you stood by your sex when the time comes and you are discriminated against and subordinated.

NO I owe my sex nothing just because we share the same sex, I own my family, my friends and myself I don’t owe feminists or women anything just because we are women. Because it is clear you don’t care about me you care that I’m a women not a person.

PRETTY SURE YOU ARE CONTRADICTING YOURSELF! THAT SOUNDS LIKE A VERY FEMINIST VIEWPOINT!!!! You may not identify with feminism, but it is a world view and other women need it. It sounds as though you have been misinformed because you obviously have no idea what feminism is. That is fine that you don’t identify with it, but I still don’t understand your rationale.

Let me ask? Do you take birth control? Are you employed? Do you vote? Do you know any women in the defence force? … Did you answer yes to any of these? You can send your appreciation and thanks to the feminist who paved the way for these opportunities you now have. I think you’ve let your experiences of individuals who identify with feminism skew your ignorance and misunderstand.

Other feminist issues that are more relevant to our western world; sex discrimination in the work place, the glass ceiling and employment, women in politics or lack of, unpaid labour … the list goes on

Tickets for NYC are finalised, I can’t wait to wake up in SoHo, take a walk in Central Park, watch Michael Cera in a broadway show and go absolutely wild in Sephora.

I need suggestions.
Things to do in New York during the holiday season, a hole in the wall, places only a New Yorker would only know. Somewhere I can get lost.

I want my New York minute …
