When women state that men are better than women / they get along better with men because “they are so much more logical and cooler and smarter and etc. etc. etc.”
to go against an entire gender is fucking ridiculous, especially when your genitals or sex are specific to your argument.
I know great men. I know great women. It has nothing to do with what’s in their panties, boxers, free-ballin’, titty-holdin’, sex identity, gender lovin’ self.
Men and women are equal
and to say one is better than the other just because you happen to think you’re a badass and get along with two dudes better than you get along with five dudettes makes you look like a total idiot and one who is adding to the everlasting gender war.Source slutupashley

I’m gonna keep this short, I refuse to get too into this when I have so much work to do…
Let’s just put the bigotry and homophobia aside for a second. This woman calls herself a feminist, except her definition of feminism is:
“Feminism is supporting life, supporting men, and supporting God. It’s the bravery of putting others before yourself. It’s the boldness of realizing your efforts may not be recognized. It’s speaking for yourself and the unborn, it’s speaking in favor of God even when it’s not popular. THAT is feminism.”
No. Just no. Firstly, get an education. The feminist movement is defined on the grounds of gender equality, that women are equal to men. To edit what you wrote:
Feminism is about women supporting themselves. It’s the boldness of aiming to get your efforts recognised, speaking for yourself and your rights and voicing your opinions openly without it being discredited because you are a women. THAT is feminism.
“What is laughable is the idea that women and men are the “same”. By ACKNOWLEDGING that, that is what makes me a feminist. The fact that I see TRUTH.”
“Voting and learning is a PRODUCT of MY feminism. Whereas your feminism is all about being angry, hating men, bombing churches, and promoting the disgusting lesbianism. Feminism should have ended after 1920, but no, the radical liberals and lesbians had to prolong it to give them more power and influence others.”
No, you cannot just ‘pick and choose’ the parts of the feminist movement you agree with. The feminist movement, is the feminist movement. End of. Whether you agree with it or not, this includes the campaign for reproductive rights, equality in the workplace and in the home, the right to vote, to have control over your own body, to be able to voice your opinion openly. The only thing disgusting here is your ignorance on the subject, that you grossly stereotype all feminists as “radical liberals and lesbians” without any education on the subject. Whilst it’s true that there are extremist feminist groups, as there are in nearly every movement, organisation or religion, including christianity, feminism has nothing to do with “man hating” and “having power over others”. If feminism had ended after the 1920’s, you would still face discrimination for being a woman and your rights as a woman would be severely limited.Source mollyindia

“Women were spit upon, slapped in the face, tripped up, pelted with burning cigar stubs, and insulted by jeers and obscene language too vile to print or repeat.”

So pissed off that history classes teach people that men gave women the right to vote with the 19th Amendment (after it was passed not all women could even vote). Women fought tooth and nail to get the right to vote in the suffrage movement but then after that as well because many women couldn’t vote after it was passed because of racism and classism. No one gave the women the right to vote, they took it.
