In the Press

Here is a list of all the articles we’ve been featured in. Whilst not all of them agree with our ideas and ideals, I think it’s important to share them all here to help continue the conversation around women and feminism.

    • Feminism: (Merriam-Webster) the belief that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities

      Feminist: (Dictionary.com) advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.

      To those women who say ‘I am not a Feminist’. To those who scoff at women’s rights movements, who laugh at any suggestion that there is a problem or threat or that there even IS such a thing as Feminism anymore. To anyone who enjoys the rude phrase ‘feminazi’. I say to you:

      Have you ever been cared for by a woman doctor? Have you ever been counseled by a woman lawyer? Is your dentist a woman? Did you have women college professors? Did you go to college…do you WANT to go to college? Did you reap the benefits of a mother who went to work while you were growing up?

      How do you think a woman’s place in this modern world evolved to make these roles more possible?! But that does not mean all things are equal.

      One quote on the collage of women here on this site said something along the lines that getting drunk at a party and having sex is not rape. Perhaps, but what does that have to do with being against Feminism as defined above? It is not an argument. It is not a stance. It is sad that young women use shaming tactics against other young women by suggesting that certain behaviors DESERVE to be answered by rape.

      What DO you stand for??? What will you stand for? Will you be proud to tell your daughters you opposed Feminism??? I don’t think you will if you really understand what Feminism means…

      Things that seem like they’ve always been in place in our western culture were once scientific breakthroughs, medical breakthroughs, consumer protection breakthroughs, amazing inventions, new laws enacted, barriers broken through… the following is a list of firsts for women in this country, which means before these women, there were none…imagine that.

      Elizabeth Blackwell: Graduated from Medical school in 1910. First woman doctor.
      Arabella Mansfield: First woman lawyer in the US in 1869.
      Raymonde de Laroche: First woman to receive a pilot license 1910
      Valentina Tereshkova: First woman in space 1963
      Emily Howell Warner: First woman to become an airline captain 1976
      Emeline Roberts Jones: First woman to practice dentistry in the US 1855
      Mary Anderson received a patent for her ‘car-window cleaning device’ in 1903. The windshield wiper.
      Hedy Lamarr received a patent for her invention of Spread Spectrum Technology in 1941
      Rosalind Franklin, British molecular biologist and crystallographer, her research completed in 1953, was crucial to the DNA discovery and she, along with one of her students, took the infamous Photo 51 which was subsequently used without her knowledge.
      Penny Ann Early: First woman to play major professional basketball 1968
      Jennifer Welter: first woman hired to coach men’s pro football. 2015 (yes two thousand and fifteen)

      1860 New York: Married women granted the right to control their own earnings

      First Coed College was Oberlin Collegiate Institute, opened 1833.

      The first four women to receive bachelor’s degrees in the United States earned them at Oberlin in 1841. Later, in 1862, the first black woman to receive a bachelor’s degree (Mary Jane Patterson) also earned it from Oberlin College

      Maybe these dates are a little more easily appreciated…

      Up until 1978, a woman in the US could be fired from her job for being pregnant.

      1977 was first recognized workplace sexual harassment case in the US

      Not until 1969 could a woman get an Ivy League education.

      It wasn’t until 1972 that a single woman was legally allowed access to the Pill

      Not until 1974 was a woman in the US allowed to establish a line of credit/get a credit card.

      Not until 1973 was it legal to have an abortion.

      Not until 1973 were women allowed in all 50 states to serve on juries.

      Maybe these dates are still too OLD for you to consider important???

      Can you imagine having to get a man to co-sign with you in order to get a credit card? Any woman you know who is 44 years or older, would have been alive when that was true in our country. Oh, you don’t have to worry about that now? The work was all done for you?!

      I see a lot of very young women in the photo collage posted on this site parroting things they have probably heard from some not very bright friend or relative or other weak information source, showing obvious shame in embracing a good thing because somebody said Feminism is a dirty word.

      Nowhere does true Feminism advocate hatred of men. Forget your 1st, 2nd, 3rd waves. It is an ongoing process. The problem has not been resolved. Yes, you do enjoy privileges which women fought and died for, it’s true. But it doesn’t end here. Wake up! Open your eyes. If you don’t know who any of the following women are, pick one at random, look her up and say thank you!

    • Feminism: (Merriam-Webster) the belief that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities

      By definition, the name of this website could easily be called “Women Against Equal Rights”.

  1. You guys are so oblivious. I guess you didn’t need the person who gave you the right to vote. You just basically said “I don’t need someone to point out that we aren’t getting equal pay, because I don’t care”. Was the women’s rights movement not good? What forced to being raised in polygamy? Think, before you hold up one of those stupid signs.

    • Alice, this site is referencing 3rd Wave Feminism, which has done nothing for equality, and instead champions female superiority and turning men, and anyone who doesn’t agree with its dogma into 2nd class citizens or non-people.

      The feminist movement you are speaking of has long been dead. It did its job to the letter, and it no longer exists. This current form of feminism shares the same name, but it is not the same thing at all. Feminism used to be about equality, not it is about superiority. Get a clue.

      • There is strong evidence that the fight for women’s voting rights started BEFORE feminism, and feminism just took credit for it (like they do for most things it seems) and not only that, the suffragettes were fighting for the same rights (to vote) as men, without the same responsibilities (to be drafted) that men had.

        That is not equality.

    • But is feminism now those movments? No it’s not. See, feminism has been split up into waves: 1st, 2nd, and third. The women’s suffrage and women’s rights movements took place in the 2nd and 1st. The movement we are in now, that started in the 80’s, Is the third wave. It is a completely different entity than the one’s before, so bringing up things that happen around 50-100 years ago is not realistic. What has the 3rd wave done for me now? Absolutely nothing. (I also suggest you do more research on the woman suffrage movement.)

    • i think they are saying they dont need anything else
      like they are ok about how life is now
      so i think that is the point

    • The feminist movement now and the feminist movement 100 years ago are two different things. You can NOT be a Christian and still believe that murder is bad, just like how you can NOT be a feminist, but still believe in equality for men and women. You do not own equality.

    • Feminism need not be relevant in America anymore. If you want to fight for gender equality, focus on women in third world countries who have NO RIGHTS, rather than a false wage gap, that is in reality, an earnings difference. Fight for the abused men who have no safe houses and resources available, fight for the fact that more men are raped in the United States than women. Fight against the false statistics that third wave feminists promote.

    • Only person oblivious here is you and I’m sorry about it. You don’t even know what you’re into yourself, just following the crowd. Learn wisdom from womenagainstfeminism.com

    • Aren’t you sweet. Just because feminism did something good in the past doesn’t mean we have to support a similar cause now. Also, the pay gap is pretty tiny after adjustments are made: “However, after adjusting for choices made by male and female workers in college major, occupation, working hours, and parental leave, multiple studies find that pay rates between males and females varied by 5–6.6% or, females earning 94 cents to every dollar earned by their male counterparts. The remaining 6% of the gap has been speculated to originate from deficiency in salary negotiation skills and gender discrimination.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_pay_gap_in_the_United_States). So it’s not always that we don’t care, it’s that we don’t agree with the importance of some of these issues on a logical, statistical, or moral (i.e. abortion, which is considered a feminist cause) basis.

  2. How many times do women hold up signs with the word “slut” or “slutty” in it? If women don’t think the word is sexist, it’s probably okay if I say women are all sluts. I don’t care. BTW, I don’t care for men’s right, either. I’m exercising it right now.

    • Haha I’m not hating or anything man, but when people say they hate sluts, I’m pretty sure they’re saying they hate sluts, not women.

      And when someone says someone is acting slutty, I’m pretty sure they’re saying that that particular person, or the action they’re doing, is slutty, and not saying that all women are slutty.

      But whatever… fuck English.

  3. The Inequality of Women’s Rights in Australia

    There has been much discussion recently in the media with the issue of gender equality. Some people suggest that women should not have the same privileges as men, since they have the upper hand over woman. Others maintain that women in Australia unfairly are deprived of the same equal rights as their male counterparts. I also contend that equality between a man and a woman is vital in today’s society.
    In our nation, there are 100,000 more women than men, yet 80% of women believe that men and women are not treated equally. In the past, the fight for women’s rights was more overt and vocal. However, since many inspirational, high-profile women, such as: Hillary Clinton, the first female senator in the United States, Malala Yousafzai, Taliban gunshot survivor and renowned vocalist Beyonce, have risen to success, many fail to understand that gender inequality persists. So how much has really changed? There are still many fields in Australia, where the unequal treatment of women is deep-rooted. These include business, politics and sport. Women are also increasingly targeted and victimised by violent men. Even though these issues are constant, not much is being done to address them.
    Women in the workplace are denied the same opportunities as their male counterparts. They are underrepresented in virtually all sectors of the workplace, but in particular, top managerial positions. In 2011, the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency, reported that women represented only13% of managers in mining and only 15.1% of total employees. For construction there were similar results with 16% of managers being female a mere 11.8% of total employees. Women are not only underrepresented in high-level positions, but also in mid-level and junior ones. The inequalities do not end there. Women earn less than men in the same jobs, and earn 1 million less over the course of their lifetime. A report from the National Centre for Social and Economic Modeling in 2009, found that 60% of the difference between women’s and men’s salaries, is based purely on gender. If discrimination was abolished, the average wage for women, based on a 35 hour week, would increase by $3,394 annually. This is appalling in a developed country, such as Australia, and must no longer be condoned.
    Similarly, there are fewer women CEOs in Australia than men. There are also many more men in parliament than women. Isn’t it absurd that there are more men leading a country that has more women? During Julia Gillard’s time in office, she experienced many discriminatory and sexist remarks. Michael Pengilly, an m.p from South Australia, described Julia Gillard as a “dog”. She was also called a “witch” and was even targeted by items of food. She had to regularly endure derogatory comments regarding her physical appearance from the current Prime Minister Tony Abbott. All Prime Ministers experience a degree of negativity from the public and other members of parliament, but never to the extent suffered by Julia Gillard. The taunting and cruel remarks directed at her simply because of her gender, made many people view her as weak and vulnerable. This led to fewer women wanting to pursue a career in politics. In fact, studies by the Young Women’s Christian Association and a University of Adelaide survey found two-thirds of respondents, both male and female, were less likely to be interested in politics Following Gillard’s mistreatment. Women make up half our population yet this is not reflected in our parliament. Who knows if we will ever see another female Prime Minster if this type of discrimination continues?
    Australian women do not receive the same treatment as men when it comes to sport. Competition standards for women are not the same as those for men. The Australian Open does not allow as much playing time for women and the women’s volleyball nets are lower than the men’s. Men and women in all sporting events should be allowed to compete, excuse the pun, ‘on a level playing field’, with no gender divide. Sport should not be about gender but about ability. Having lower standards for women implies that females are somehow inferior. Women’s sport is under reported by the media. The Australian Football League and the Football Federation of Australia do not televise female teams. Without the media coverage for females, there are not many sponsors for these athletes, meaning their wage is not as high as it is for men. For young girls it is hard for them to witness positive role models in the form of female sports stars because it is not widely broadcast. When females do get coverage they receive more comments on their physical appearance than on their physical abilities. Many young women have recalled incidents regarding male spectators who were yelling sexist and derogatory comments to them and when they whistled and cheered the females, most of them felt it was a response to their bodies instead of what was happening during the games. The objectification of women is an idea that it is very much processed in someone’s mind, that when a young women walked into a store to buy new netball shoes, she received a comment from a sales assistant that “When you’re running around the court in a tight T-shirt and a short skirt no one is going to be looking at your shoes”. It is sad that people criticise the appearance of women especially when they are in the same sporting industry. A male athlete told the Australia Sporting Commission, that his coach calls female athletes “useless” and “stupid”. When the strength, power and competitiveness in women are not praised, but negated it can, negatively impact women who want to pursue athletic careers.
    Women are increasingly the targets for violence both within their families and in public. Family violence is endemic in today’s world. This violence presents in many forms, as physical, sexual and psychological threats. In many cases it is the males controlling and manipulating their partners. They use physical abuse for a number of reasons and it threatens the women’s safety which is her fundamental right. Sexual assault is not only physically damaging but also mentally damaging. This sexual assault extends from a variety of people not just their partners. The Lancet Medical Journal stated that 16.4% of women 15 years or older in Australia and New Zealand have been the victim of sexual assault by someone who was not their partner. Being affected by violence can result in the females being psychologically damaged, having low self-esteem and low confidence. A man can restrict a woman’s happiness and right to be independent. Females are worth much more than what some men perceive them to be and therefore more protection should be done to preserve the rights of women.
    There is no doubt gender inequality is alive and well in today’s Australia, We must do all in our power to circumvent it and ensure a ‘fair go’ for the next generation of young Australian women.

    • “”They are underrepresented in virtually all sectors of the workplace, but in particular, top managerial positions.””

      Of course, always picking the cherries, aren’t you, …top managers, huh….Women are under-represented in many other sectors BY CHOICE. I have never seen women flocking in droves into street construction, heavy civil work, mining, chemical plants, forestry, steel plants, sewer work, trash and waste management, electrical, rail construction, ….I could go on. As far as I am concerned, you can be in top management positions, if you are also willing to do the bone-breaking work. Stop being a victim if you want true equality.

    • I had a few things I wanted to point out after reading your comment:

      Female senators: Hillary Clinton was not the first female senator in the United States, just FYI.

      Violence in Australia: According to the Australian Government’s website (Australian Institute of Criminology), men do commit the majority of assaults, however men were victimized at a rate of 837 out of 100,000 (vs women 675 out of 10,000) in 2009-2010. Men are more likely to be victimized by strangers. Men are more likely to be assaulted, robbed and killed in Australia. The source shows women are more likely to be victims of sexual assault, but the majority of these assaults are done by family members (not saying this lessens the crime, but just wanted to point this out). These stats can be found on your own government’s websites.

      Women in the workplace: Generally speaking, women choose more flexible/safe careers than men, so they can tend to their families (the most important role in the world, in my opinion). Being a CEO at a Fortune 500 or a politician requires a lot of traveling and time away from home. Most women aren’t willing to do that. AND THAT’S OK. Because women choose to have more flexible jobs, they aren’t at work as many hours. Men tend to work longer hours than women, so it makes sense that they get paid more for their work. Yes, more men are miners, but mining is one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. Why would a woman who has children want to choose a career that could end her life and take her away from her kids? However, nobody is stopping you from becoming one… so why don’t you take the lead and become one yourself? Encourage your female children to become miners, too. You may experience gas leaks, cave-ins, electrocution, vehicle collisions and fires, but hey, you’re a strong woman, you can handle it! After all, you are 100% equal to men!

      Women and sports: Male sports tend to be faster than female sports (because… biology), therefore they tend to be more fun to watch. Male sports teams generate more money than female sports teams. It’s all about supply and demand. Do you attend female sports games often? Do you wear their jerseys or have posters of them on your bedroom walls? If the answer is no (and it probably is), then you are part of the problem. Start going to more female sports events, encourage your friends and families as well, and maybe you’ll start to see a change. Until then, you have to follow the money trail. I know this is not what your average feminist wants to hear, but our societies revolve around money. But I like money. And you probably do, too. So put your money where your mouth is.

      Violence between men and women: I’m not trying to downplay women being abused, but men are often taught not to express their feelings or see themselves as victims. They are constantly told to ‘suck it up and be a man’ – therefore, many men don’t report physical or sexual abuse. 3 million men will be victims of abuse by their female partners in the U.S. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 men will be victims of abuse. There are about 1,500 safe houses for battered women in the U.S. and about 5 for men (my numbers could be slightly off here). Why aren’t feminists fighting to change this, since they are all about equality?

  4. its funny how most of these articles (especially ‘raw’ by assuming that all the pics taken were by men forcing the women to hold the sign up) try to portray these women as stupid and advocating misogyny and feminist wonder why people do not like them. any one that has apposing views to them is wrong or stupid, fascist, misogynist etc. yet they can talk trash about whoever they want. Heard of freedom of speech anyone? #fuckfeminazism

  5. Feminism does not stop you from attending to your home or raising your own child. It doesn’t demand that you hate men or claim your superiority over them. At its core it only begs that you question the equality of the genders in society. Feminists don’t blame men for their “mistakes” or their “insecurities” they blame society for shackling them to confining roles and abolishing their freedom of choice in several cases. You might say that gender inequality is over and that it no longer exists, but there are still women all over the world who experience first hand the strong bias against them. It is acceptable to be content with your situation but it is unacceptable to remain ignorant to that of others.

    • I agree, and I think many people need to realize that extreme feminists are not everybody. I am a feminist that will fight for equal rights across the board, because there are so many injustices against our sisters in different countries and if we cannot support women across the world how are women supposed to break the gender norms. I am not saying you need to not shave to prove yourself to men, if you want to go ahead I will support you, but I in no way intend on trying to bring men down by trying to give women a better name and life.

  6. Well done, women!
    Third Wave Feminism has become anti-women by demonizing motherhood and leading young women to the ridiculous hours, depression/ anxiety and sexual self-hurt of the American city.
    It is anti-boy in lobbying for estrogen injections for boys who are rambunctious, expelling those boys who are losing their little minds in a dumb-you-down school system and can’t sit still though it.
    It demonizes our amazing Dads and brothers as all being potential rapists and oppressors!
    Well done my fellow women for discarding this extremist ideology. Girl power!

    • Hi Jane Smith,

      Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Steven Thompson. I am a university educated man that comes from the Toronto, Ontario, Canada region. I have a B.Ed. degree and a B.A. degree. When I went to university in Southern Ontario, Canada back in the late 1980s, I majored in English and History. I think that I am a reasonably intelligent person, but I believe that most people in this world are similarly intelligent as well. Dear Jane, I assume that you are a nice and decent person, but you have chosen to be extremely sarcastic in your letter to these nice women who operate this website. Dear Jane, why did you Choose to be Sarcastic with these nice people? Does it make you proud of yourself to use sarcasm, Jane? Or maybe you are one of those misguided people who actually believes that by being Sarcastic with people you portray Incredible Intelligence. Come on Jane, being sarcastic doesn’t prove great intelligence at all. Jane, everyone knows that being sarcastic is just being RUDE! Jane, there is simply No Honour in being sarcastic and rude with other people. If you believe that everyone here is overwhelmed by your Sarcastic Brilliance, then I really believe you are sadly mistaken. Everyone knows that sarcasm is a very simple concept. Sarcasm is simply a form of Irony. There are 2 basic forms of Irony: sarcasm – low irony, and wit – high irony. Irony is simply saying one thing, but you actually mean the opposite thing. Dear Jane, did you really believe we would be that impressed by your tremendous knowledge of low irony – sarcasm? Surely not, right? Surely, you realize that 10 year old boys say to bald men on the city streets of Toronto literally everyday, “Hi Sir. It’s very nice to meet you. By the way, I really like the way that you’re wearing your hair today. Okay, well goodbye, Sir. Have a nice day.” I am sure that you realize that this type of scenario is happening thousands of times everyday. Even 10 year old boys understand irony , Jane. However, it is Blatantly Obvious that you think your use of Sarcasm makes you appear Highly Intelligent, or you simply wouldn’t have used it at all. Once again Jane, being Sarcastic with people is simply the same as being Rude with them, so if your ultimate goal was just to be Rude with us then why didn’t you just tell us to all “F—- Off?” But, I realize that you are Used to being Sarcastic because that has always been the Feminists’ favourite way to win an argument, right Jane? For example: (This is a totally true story. Everyone who knows about feminists’ behaviour during the late 1980s will know that this account is definitely true.). When I was at university in the late 1980s in Southern Ontario, Canada, a group of us were sitting in a coffee shop on our university campus. It was in late March, so one of the young men said (just to make Polite conversation) “What is everyone doing for the summer?” And instead of similarly being Polite, and simply responding to his mundane question, Cathy, an outspoken feminist in our small group of friends Sarcastically said, “Well, gee. I don’t know. I’m only a woman, so I guess I will have to give birth to a few babies for the summer. That’s my Only function in life, right?” Oh, Gee. Thanks a lot Cathy. Thanks a lot for being Sarcastic and Rude to a person who was being Polite with you. It is Obvious that you feminists truly believe that by being Sarcastic and Rude to other people that you are portraying your Superior Intellect to everyone else in society (except of course your equally sarcastic fellow feminist friends). Jane, did No One ever tell you about the Importance of being Polite with other people? Why do you and your fellow feminists insist on being Rude and Sarcastic with other people? I realize that being sarcastic with Everyone else who is Not part of the Feminist movement is one of the main “Joys” of being a feminist, but don’t you understand the Importance of being Polite at all? Jane, I assume that you wrote this letter to try to change the opinions of these anti-feminist women here to your feminist cause, so why would you be sarcastic and rude with them? They are your flesh and blood Jane; they are women! So, why would you be rude to women. Women are ALL that you care about. Women are your entire life’s philosophy. That’s why you are a Feminist, because you ONLY care about women! And because you Obviously Only Care about women, then why would you be sarcastic and rude with them? Why? Why would you insult them for No Reason? I realize that all of you feminists are finally a little bit frightened, because you can’t handle the fact that some women are Finally starting to rally against your feminist rhetoric. But, if you truly wanted to change these anti-feminist women’s minds, then why Not be Nice and Polite with them? Don’t you realize that you would have garnered much more support for your cause by being Polite with these decent women rather than ridiculing them and being sarcastic with them regarding their Choice to be anti-feminists? But, like I said, I realize that this sarcasm tactic has been used by you feminists for so long now, that you probably can’t break the habit now anyways, right? Oh well, Jane, I think you can try. Jane, have you ever travelled to any of the Oriental countries of the Far East like: Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, etc..? If you haven’t, then I suggest that you do sometime very soon. You will discover that Eastern Asian people are Exceedingly Polite All of the time, and are well known worldwide for their Unbelievable Concern with being Polite to both men and women. Politeness is a virtue, Jane, but Fortunately, for my sake, you and your fellow feminists Never realized that Fact back in the 1970s, or 1980s, or 1990s, or 2000s, etc…. I say Fortunately, because the Perpetual Rudeness of you and your Feminist Sisters is Probably the Main Reason that these Women on this website Decided to Reject your Political Ideology many years ago now. I am a 54 year old man now Jane. I have had to listen to feminist sarcasm and rudeness for a very long time now. However, fortunately, now some nice women are starting to defend white men like me, and now I really don’t feel like castrating myself anymore. Amazingly, today, I can finally respond to you and All of my feminist professors who taught me numerous ridiculous lies such as: “Women have always been subjugated by men (especially white men)”, and of course “we live in a patriarchal society”, and that “affirmative action gives women job preference over men, (and although this policy is Obviously Sexist against men) – well, it really doesn’t matter because white men have always been privileged, so now they deserve to be punished for their past evil doings” and also telling us the false statistics put forth by the Very Famous Feminist “the Great Mary Koss” back in the mid-1980s which “Falsely Claimed” that 1 in 4 college women had been victims of rape” and finally that “Everyone knows that Women live in a “Rape-culture”, etc…., etc…., etc….. Your side would have won Jane, but you feminists forgot a very important rule of life: No one likes Rude and Sarcastic People! And because you, Gloria Steinham, and the rest of your feminist sisters have consistently been Rude, Abrasive, and Sarcastic with other people, and have always had a Chip on your Shoulders, Now your feminist movement is starting to fall apart rapidly. Women are Now finally on OUR SIDE, Jane. You can fight off (us) men very easily, but you can’t fight off your own gender – Women. Jane, do you Not realize that ALL men want equality for women (even ultra-conservative nerds like Rush Limbaugh)! Everyone in the world wants equality for women. We All want equality for men too. We All want an egalitarian society. We All want an egalitarian world too. Modern feminists are now becoming Humanists, Jane. This is the Only logical course of action, because your movement is Concerned with the Rights For Women Only. Everyone Else is a Humanist Jane, because we want equality for Both Women and Men too. Feminism Only fights for Equality for Women, and that is why Feminism has always been a Dreadfully Selfish Political Ideology. Feminism Must die out because it is Only concerned with 1 gender. Humanism Must completely take over, because it is concerned with equality every single person in the entire world. But, there’s still time for you to come over to our side too, Dear Jane. Give up Feminism, and join the Humanist Revolution! We always want new members. However, if you can’t come over to our side ( and I’m pretty sure that you can’t), then please send me one of your patented Sarcastic Feminist Responses, because you and I both know Jane – that they Always Do You Good.

      Take care Jane, and I’m very sorry that I was a bit sarcastic with you too. But, oh well, I’m sure that you will Nail the Hell out of me with your “Incredible Intelligence and Amazing Gifts of Incomprehensible Irony” in your response to this letter,

      Anyways, good luck to you, (and I actually mean that sincerely),

      It’s very hard to be a woman, and it’s very hard to be a man too, Dear Jane,

      (I really hope that you understand this fact),

      Take care,

      Please respond to me anytime,

      Bye for now,

      Steven Thompson

      • Dude, you completely misread her message. She is against 3rd wave feminism and was giving kudos to the women of this site.

      • Do you realize that by writing such elongated message to Jane to quit feminism in such way is going against your message to not to be mean? You yourself is being a hypocrite by doing the things you told her not to do. Constantly repeating her name by saying “Dear Jane… Dear Jane…” is done in a way to annoy her evidently and I think you are aware of that you did that intentionally to annoy her. There are a lot of other things you intentionally did as well but I won’t list them down here because it will get too long then.
        Second of all it is very rude to tell other feminists that they deserve to die and you were too emotional here. Extreme feminists are part of the small portion of the entire feminists and you are generalizing the whole feminist population. Also, people who claim that feminism is wrong by claiming women should not be superior than men are actually, in fact, taking part of feminism as they are supporting for gender equality. Feminism is about gender equality and many people have the wrong idea about it.

        Before you say something, first, learn to calm down, and second, act the way you expect others to behave to you.

  7. Did anyone know that women are not the only ones suffering under islamic law?

    Lapidation is a penalty for adultery applied to BOTH male and female perpetrators. Also, according to official numbers from Iran, 50% of people lapidated due to adultery were male. Although, that is the numbers of the people who had their names written. If the nameless entries are included, the numbers tips to somewhere around 60/40, being the male population the majority.

    Not only that, lapidation for men is even more cruel than it is with women. Women are placed in holes which only leave their head exposed, meaning that every hit is made to the head, and while it is still a painful and deplorable death, it is a quick one. However, men are denied even of such mercy. Men are buried only to the waist, meaning that their bodies are severely crushed by stones for what can easily last for thirty minutes before they can finally die.

    Of course, feminists will have their say in this. The one that seems reasonable is that women also suffer from literal objectification and the burkha. The other position is that, because it’s man on man violence, it is irrelevant. By that logic, when a woman is attacked by another woman, authorities shouldn’t care. Obviously, that logic is rotten and should never be enforced.

    Unto the subject of the other issues women face under these regimes: it is true, women have less rights than men and are barely considered property. However, that does not legitimize lapidation of men, nor does it mean that men are particularly better off.

    Why? Simple: men suffer from other very serious issues which are pretty much just as terrible as that. Whenever a man is suspected of a crime, he will be tortured until he admits to be guilty, and in many cases, even this step is skipped and they authorities go straight up for the kill (literally). In recent days, all of the male population of a whole village was executed in basis of drug trafficking — even the children. Why? Because, according to them, those who weren’t drug-dealers, would eventually become one, simply because of them being male.

    Shouldn’t women be protected because of this? Of course they should, as well as men should.
    However, whenever you show this to a feminist, you will be accused of being a mysoginist cruel brainless bastard (literally, happened to me more than once). Not only that, but this is information that is never published anywhere because, well, apparently no one cares about men.

    To top it off, whenever you discuss this in front of most feminists, you will be laughed at, and told to suck it up. Funny that, somehow, feminists still expect people to care about their issues.

    • I’m pretty sure everyone is suffering under shariah law XD the women are treated like property and are seen as worth less than men, gay men are thrown off of rooftops, children (mostly girls but whatever) are mutilated, and anyone, even a man, who tries to leave the religion is beheaded.

  8. Wow, refreshing. I don’t know what is in store for men and women but it is nice to hear females empathizing with men.
    Thank you, it means a lot. Sincerely
