Yeah, make me.

That's silly. It's what gets me so disenchanted with the people who assert themselves for the cause. If the only people getting any credit are those that are naggy and radical, the whole movement gets a bad name - that's why I really hope we can get some of the Pit involved. Most normal dudes are feminists, the titles is just scary because of some of the bullshit attached to the situation.



and let's not get into a flirting battle about making you shut up for once I'll abstain, I don't need to troll myself.

Also, feminism doesn't denote equal opportunities. That's egalitarianism. I'm probably wrong.. But meh.

Egalitarianism is a term used in a different context - it is the opposite of elitism. They are synonymous but you use them in different situations. Feminism is a notion of egalitarianism.

Yeah I think most people here are for gender equality, but when they find fault where there is none they'll get the opposite reaction; gender quotas and people taking their frustration on the other gender. Coincindentally I just got a job because I'm a man, despite not being as educated or experienced as the women applying for the job so I guess it's alright over here.

Troll yourself? You clearly have a different view of these 'battles'

Why consider yourself a feminist if women in pretty much all the locations of the people on here have equal rights already, and all you will get for being feminist is having people extremely prejudiced negatively towards you?

There was a question on Newsnight the other week which I couldn't decide the answer too.

Should companies be forced to have a certain number of female representatives in the board room or should it be based on merit?

It's difficult because some men at the top will maybe have a skewed view of women and will choose men or it will force women who may not be better than the men they are competing with for the position.

You've also got to keep in mind that at a certain age when women have children they will usually choose a job where they can look after the children which most highly paid jobs arent.

Just thought it was interesting to see how difficult enforcing equality is.

This thread makes me want a sandwich.



Seriously, I believe that everyone should be treated equally whether they're male, female, black, Asian, or whatever.
I'm too lazy to dig around for the thing to change my title, so it's gonna stay how it is.

Thank you to everyone who has already changed their user title! It's so encouraging to see any support Remember that a feminist doesn't have to be a crazy butch lady, it can just be your average dude.

Because it's not about rights, it's about people's views.

That's totally not true though. While things have gotten a lot better as far as gender issues go, there is still so much room to move. It's not just about women either - it's about men as well. A lot of issues don't necessarily occur int he workplace or in universities; many of them have to do with societal perception.

If people are in favour of equal rights they've got the important bit down, it doesn't matter if they call themselves a feminist.
