    ….A feminist looks like a professional activist wearing a $75 t-shirt made by slave labor while proclaiming that she is a feminist. It isn’t fighting for the rights of women that makes her a feminist. It’s the pricey fashion statement of someone who toots their own horn while exploiting less fortunate women.

    The professional feminist is not there to help women, but to promote the agenda of the institutional left. She will turn campus rape into a political cause while criticizing every rape prevention measure, from a rape drug detecting nail polish to self-defense for women, for not dealing with rape culture. Stopping rape doesn’t interest her. Exploiting the abuse of women to fight a culture war does. ….

    That broad brush article identifying feminism as a whole through those examples within reminds me of Pat Robertson's proclamation years ago:

    Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.
    Pat Robertson


    It was tragic then and it remains so to this day. Even when worded in a full on article.
    No, that isn't what feminism looks like. That's what Misogyny writes like. Only weak men are afraid of strong women.

    Amen and amen sister, preach it! Frankly.

    I like intelligent women.
    I like women who have their own opinion.
    I appreciate strong women.

    Strong Christian women make good friends, good church members, good wives. We need more of them.

    I have little regard for men who are afraid of strong women!

    [I put the last sentence of your reply in bold.]

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Nice job completely ignoring the article, and throwing something in from somebody else that had nothing to do with the article, then using the other person's words as a reason to criticize the article.

    That was weak. Use words the article actually says, please, if you want to speak rationally. I already know your new buddy can't.

    Thank you.
    The article is particularly disturbing because of the broad condemnation that is applied to feminist women generally.

    It's not a piece that is based on identifiable facts. The "poll" that is referred to when the author claimed polls show (notice there is no link to a poll so as to show this) most women don't want to be identified as feminist because....

    The $75 dollar tee shirt that is claimed to be pictured in the piece, firstly isn't worth 75$ and yet that claim and it being made by slave labor seems to be relevant to the author as they link the shirt to the evils and failures of feminism.

    This though is what contributes to the evidence the author has an issue with women.

    Further, 'professional feminist', is almost laughable save it is an article that in its entirety is at least, praise God, evidence of why women are drawn to feminism. And to standing for their rights as women.

    The broad brush that implicates all of feminism in a negative light on so many levels, while demonstrating no proof of claims, yet plenty of evidence of misogyny is tragic.

    What is even worse is that it is thought to be worthy of print on a Baptist forum. As if to make a point against feminism while the author demonstrates from top to bottom that they have a deeply ingrained hate and fear of women. Strong women.
    When I first read it I prayed for Daniel Greenfield a conservative journalist. At least that is what he's called. And I prayed most for any women in his life. [​IMG]

    He lies. And the thing is, it isn't hard to prove it. "The institutional left can't call out Islam..." ?
    [​IMG]

    That is one source as to what feminism looks like when it writes the evidence that proves Mr.Greenfield is biased and uninformed about what feminism is.
    His feminism is everything he hates about women collected under an umbrella label of his own creation. "professional feminist".
    Thank God and praise the good Lord, real feminists aren't even in the vicinity. But that he is a male making these public proclamations says a lot about the job actual feminists have ahead of them. We've come a long way. Men like Mr.Greenfield prove we're not even close to the end of the journey.

    God forgive him.

    My Mrs. Rolf has no trouble expressing her opinion. Call her a feminist and you will find out what she thinks of them.

    Your statement got harder to read as it went, but I'll answer as much as I can.
    That is how the world, save very few, views feminism. Like it or not.

    They cite "Women Against Feminism" in the statement. Their website is loaded with stats.

    Also…

    http://www.netmums.com/home/feminism

    So their claim seems to bear out.



    He's citing an instance in the U.K. when he quotes that price. Do you know how much they're selling for, over there ?


    Not sure what you're saying, here. You're saying there are no professional feminists ?

    So you're denying anything in the article has ever really happened ?

    That's just baloney. I think your eyes glazed over with any criticism of the movement, and now you're just flailing. And please, don't brag to me about your prayer life. I don't care.


    Thank God for truly strong women who don't need feminism.

    Man, you got a high horse. Strong women don't throw tantrums.

    Feminism a failed philosophy that has managed to give unregenerate men what they always wanted. Feminist fought for sexual freedom so now unregenerate men can have sex without the responsibility. Feminist made any act of chivalry an act of Misogyny in their warped minds and now chivalry is all but dead. Feminist are now the ones that have made women sexual objects with their so called war on women. This blog pointed out all the hypocrisy that is in the left and lets face it Feminism is just one aspect of the far lefts ideals.

    Now go ahead and claim I'm a weak minded female, who must be taught how horrible my life is with all the microaggression I must deal with on a daily occasion. Go ahead and tell me I don't have a original thought in my head because I dare be a women who doesn't think Feminism is the greatest thing since slice bread. My husband would get great amusement from that.

    Said by a man who does not like strong women. Or am I wrong, do you like strong women who will disagree with you?

    Oh, my friend, if you knew the strong women friends you would know how ridiculous your comment really is. I am not particularly interested in people who would always agree with me. That would only show they are weak.

    Like I said, I like intelligent, strong women who will stand their ground and discuss in rational, polite ways. That is also a sign of strength. I am gaining respect for CatMommy.

    Not true, but that's OK. I understand you don't appreciate criticism of your agenda here.
    God be with you. :praying:



    And this strong woman did not throw a tantrum. She merely pointed out the misogyny that is being promoted vicariously through your source. Weak men tend to try and insult women who see through their motives. And with the armor of God fully adorning my person, those kind of men fail.

    They need Jesus so as to let go of the Satanic worldly rage that makes them hate the very vehicle that brings life to this world. And by that gift demonstrate the female sex has never been weak.
    But it does make some men feel better to think that they are.
    Even God knew better. That's why many women thank God for Mary. :) Because Jesus did.

    You've never been right, about me.

    If you ever meet a strong woman, I'm sure you will wet your pants.

    I'm sure she will feel better, now.

    :( You sound very angry. And anger is often times a reflection of repressed sorrow.

    :flower:May God have mercy. :praying:

    My agenda ?





    The piece did not insult you. It did not call you weak. And you did and are throwing a tantrum.

    Wow. You're really pissed, aren't you ?

    I don't even know what to make of this. This is why I don't need Feminism. I don't see men as full of hate toward women. I see men who need a Savior just as much as women do. Women are not saints, and anyone who think they are has not been in room full of Jr. High Girls.
