It's funny how that works.

I don't consider myself a feminist. I don't know what I am.

Well, we were just talking about this in Spanish class. Yeah, Spanish class. I don't remember why. Anyway my Spanish teacher was saying girls shouldn't have to shave and that in alot of foreign countries they don't. Of course all the guys were like, "EW! Gross!" thats always how it is. But I admit I do think its gross when girls have hairy armpits other than that I don't care. I don't shave my legs unless I wear a skirt/dress, but most of the time I wear panty hose. (thankfully I don't have gym anymore.)
So yeah, my very interesting story and my two cents for the day.

What about men? If they started shaving their legs, wearing female underwear/clothing, makeup, etc., they'd be labeled either as a transvestite or gay.




I was just about to bring up the same thing

I still shave my legs sometimes because then they're smooth and fun to touch....

haha, yes... like after you first shave...and then go for a swim - in water that unfortanately has too high chlorine levels - yes, no?

I for one want my men to be at least moderately presentable.

I second this motion.

I'm a feminist with my speeches to my guy friends of 'woman can do just as good a job as you, you moron..' but i'm not one of those people who think woman are better than men. We're all very different. I just still don't believe woman have reached an equality with men in society, which is something I will continue to moan about!

I'm a feminist. Women should be equal, have the same rights as men (and this should have ALWAYS been the case but of course it hasn't been, and isn't even now ) It always annoys me when I see or hear 'man' in place of humans beings, the little dress on the chick for the bathrooms, when the teachers ask for "strong young men" to help them rather than any one, the fact that in Texas once a women marries a man what ever debt he creates is her own, and the very word wo-men when I'm at my touchy-ist (and yes, I know most of these things are stupid and trivial and really arn't what feminism is about but I can't help that they bug me ) I mean, I for one am as strong and capable as any guy- there are physiological diffrences but they don't make one gender less capable, just diffrent.

Because it's the way "society" labels them. I don't think it's right for anyone to have to act like their sex does, I don't see the point.

Blame the sun. And the farmers.

No seriously. I'm not just mumbling pointlessly. Simplified version: Before farmers - when 'we' were hunter and gatherers - the moon had power, not the sun. And the moon was associated to women. Women were considered superior, and made the important decisions. Men went out to hunt. Then farming came, and the Sun became important. The Sun is associated with men, they stayed home instead of hunting all night... and all the problems started

I'm not a feminist, altho, when it comes up to it, I can be, only a few times.

But for feminist, they have to be in this one place in Holland.
they had parkingspaces for women! And they didn't have to walk far to get out. It rocked
Go us!

That's very interesting.

I have definately declared myself a feminist, probably since I was 10 years old and in 5th grade arguing that women should be allowed to fight in the armed forces just like men. Being a feminist does NOT mean that you hate men or think women should be better, it means you want for things to be equal. Some people say that women have come so far and that they don't see any reason for the feminist movement to exist, but I say look at the TV. Look at those models (this affects both men and women, true, but I think it's worse for women) telling us we have to be skinny and tall and have big breasts to be socially acceptable. Look at even the actresses who are stick thin and (this is how it is at my school) all of the girls who are considered prettiest literally have eating disorders. When women are making more than 60 cents for every dollar a man makes, then you can tell me there is no need for feminism. When little girls stop trying to look like Barbie (don't tell me it doesn't happen, I thought I would look like Barbie when I was little) and are still told to play with baby dolls, then you can say there is no need for feminism. And when little boys are allowed to play dress up and play with dolls and shave their legs and not be considered "weird" then there will be no need. Feminism is about equal rights for EVERYONE not just women, don't let the name fool you. That's my rant. Thank you.

You see the one problem I havew always had with feminism is the attitude toward 'the beautiful people'. - it has always just seemed like a case of tall-poppy syndrome to me.

As to the rest (of what Tindaiel said), I agree completely.

In Australia the govornment is introducing a 'bonus' that will give $3000 for every child born.

Quite frankly I find this absolutely disgusting. They are encouraging women to stay home and produce offspring. Our Treasurer actually said this - 'each woman should have three children, one for each of the parents and one for Australia.' It's sick. Not to mention completely unacceptable.

you are right...I was just really frustrated when I wrote that. It's not that I have anything against pretty people, just that I was made fun of my whole life for not looking like everyone else and some of the things I've seen happen to my friends involving eating disorders reallly disturb me.

That is awful. I can't believe they are doing that! That really bothers me, I don't think women should have babies unless they want to.

I don't think it's right to make women stay home and raise the kids and/or take care of the house. I mean, my mom was going to college and my dad wasn't. He insisted she stay home and raise the kids- WITHOUT finishing her college years. THAT was a waste of time/money. Now she can't even get a job in target. 
And my dad is such a manist (THAT is the wrong term) He is constantly putting down women and stuff. But, he's my dad, and I <3 him, no matter how much i disagree with him.

Hells yeah I am a feminist. I hate how most people associate negative things with feminists like man hating and stuff. It's not true. I just believe that men and women should be considered equal.
