If women want the benefits of tradition (gender-specific kindness) and modernity (equality), is there a contradiction?

What is good/bad about feminism?

Feminism =/= Equality

Equality means not to cry when you are treated equally.

Qi, women are usually very contradictary.

They say you should treat everyone equally, but when you treat them like you would treat your friend, usually not extremely well, they complain because they are used to guys always letting them onto buses first, opening doors, pulling out a seat for them to sit on etc.
They complain about equality, then why don't women pull the chairs back for men?

Simple answer, normal humanity. Men have historically been the one who protects the family, whereas the mother takes care of the children. Women nowadays cannot get over this and only want men to treat them in certain ways equally, not the ones which are bad for them.

Hogwash

Everyone here presumes women want special treatment but many women I know including myself will not judge or disregard a guy for being or not being a gentleman.
I also always shared the bills during the times when I still dated guys and can't recall doing anything which could be seen as having preferential treatment.

Of course, we don't want guys to burp,fart and reek of alcohol the whole time but I presume guys also don't have endless patience for that either with their friends.

Did you post this JUST to get me to return to the forums? You did, didn't you.

Feminism is the fight for women to be afforded the same inherit rights as all humans. There is nothing that can be bad about that.

Feminism is not the fight for women to be seen as identical as men. It has little if anything to do with who pays a restaurant bill. It does have to do with being treated with respect as a person instead of as an object of affection or desire.

It... I don't have time for this.

Here's a modern feminist talking about feminism: http://www.feministfrequency.com/

Hers is just one woman's opinion and not every prominent feminist agrees with her style or all her points of view. But it's relevant to us since we're an online gaming community and she's taking on the topic of how woman are portrayed in video games now.

There is no such thing as an inherent right. "you have rights" is what people with power tell people who do not have power so that they will be obedient. Cant you see that the phrase "fight for an inherent right" is a contradiction? If you have to fight for something it is not inherent.

The feminist started moaning about women always being the victims in video games so I turned her off. That doesnt apply to a game with no characters like WL. I grew up on final fantasy seven, crash team racing and command and conquer, all of which use female characters in strong roles. Maybe that is why I have such a well adjusted demeanour towards women.

Dont just give me a shitty video and tell me you have more important things to do than talk to me. You sound like Myhand. I am listening, please education me on feminism.

but then do you see any male characters helping either? those are solo games :s (zelda and mario)

It is necessary to fight for inherent rights when the rights that have been inherently given you by somebody else is being restricted by another entity. For example, you have the right to breathe but if I begin to suffocate you, you will then begin to fight to breathe.

However, I disagree with the entire concept of feminism, because it by definition separates women into the group of "women needing something" which automatically contradicts with its very purpose. It is not that women need to achieve equality, but rather that humans ought obtain some form of equality (as this word can be measured and defined by almost an infinite number of ways). Feminism automatically separates women apart from the rest and thereby eliminates any possibility of achieving this equal treatment that would assume all involved parties are not [so] different and therefore should be treated the 'same'......even though women just separated themselves.... see the conflict?

the name "fem"inism is definitely bad, it can be very misleading. it should just be gender equalitarian or something ^^

I'm tired of serious discussion, so let's take a more fun approach. Let's see what people on the internet think about feminism:

youtube search for phrase "feminism is", most popular endings are:
- a joke
- evil
- sexist
- stupid
- destroying western women
- bullshit
- hate
- wrong
- poisoning atheism
- for everybody

google search for phrase "feminism is", most popular endings are:
- for everybody
- the radical notion that women are people
- stupid
- evil

If you go on google trends there are some funny things about searching the word feminism
http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=feminism
It has been on steady decline since 2005 and started oscilating around the same level past few years. The funniest thing is how seasonal the trend is, it seems that every summer when women start wearing less clothes people stop thinking about feminism since there is a huge decline in searches every year :) (that is meant to be a joke, there is a seasonal trend like that in almost all google searches).
Who is most interested in searching feminism by country:
- Zimbabwe
- Kenia
- Jamaica
- Sweden
- Nigeria
- Canada
- Australia
- United States
- United Kingdom

How about feminists?
google search for phrase "feminists are", most popular endings are:
- sexist
- ugly
- idiots

youtube search for phrase "feminism is", most popular endings are:
- hypocrites
- stupid
- sexist
- crazy
- ugly
- idiots
- retarded
- dumb
- evil
- wrong

On http://www.whatdoestheinternetthink.net/ we have a pseudo-code that tells us does internet like certain things. Putting in feminists we get:
Negative 94.6% 9k+ hits
Positive 5.2% 508 hits
Indifferent 0.2%

We get very similar results when we google "why feminism" or "why feminists". I definitely encourage you to check "can feminists" :)

Yeah, because I was so serious with my post which I confirmed in the first line. Also I said "feminists", not "feminism".
