    It's the Age of Aquarius. Freedom or indentured slavery for all. Your choice.

    Yeah, I'm not sure anyone really knows what feminism is, or that it is actually anything.

    My view as a finance/economics guy is that feminism was a form of propaganda; propaganda designed to push women out of the home, create double-income families, spend that extra money on child care, eating out, and medical care for diseases acquired from eating out, and thereby increase GDP...as well as to abandon their families via divorce, sue the man, take all his money, enslave him to child support, force to him keep working forever, and thereby increase GDP.

    It also served to disempower men, who historically are the protectors of the village -- therefore nobody is left to stand up to tyranny, thereby corporate/government powers run wild unchallenged.

    As you can see I have a very dark view of how American society works.

    Hmm.

    I agree with all of that, but obviously because Feminism is a word for a concept that is nothing except subjective ideas in individual minds, really I should have clarified.

    (that's because all human goodness is predicted in pentagon contingency plan war-gaming and co-opted and misdirected)

    So I meant really, the good people, normal dupes' version of it, knowing that historically that a lot of their grandmothers were legally barred from normal social and economic activity.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    We got Roe vs Wade in 1973. We took off our bras in the 70s also. It's 2013 and equal pay for equal work hasn't passed 38 states. Feminism is a joke unless you take the personal responsibility to not bump uglies with f***ed up people on the opposite side of the freedom view.

    The fact that this is even a discussion 40 years after Roe v Wade is laughable to anyone who has lived it.

    Oh, and to the OP, women don't dis you because you are or aren't a feminist, they dis you because you're crazy as a s*** house rat.

    You forgot that the dual income household can get a much bigger mortgage, so bidding up the price of housing and causing a bubble that massively enriches the banks and the politicians...

    But seriously has no-one read Virginia Woolf's "Three Guineas"?

    Funny. The ratio of people in the video looks like about one shirtless woman for every 100 leering guys with cameras.
