My name is Juan and I'm a Feminist because no one is free who can't control their own body.

1. Create a word which encompasses x-amount of rights for all.
2. Call this word "feminist."
3. Add the right to pizza at low prices once a year for all.
4. Combine #1 with #3, and we get "femapizzist."

It's interesting that the term "wave" is used. It's as if the first two waves either receded due to lack of interest or perhaps they had to be scaled back, as if those two were mistakes. But the sand is still wet.

Well it's a good thing that you won't allow women to make it up to the bedroom. We wouldn't want you to procreate or anything, ya know?

Equalist, really. Equality and what not.

Except for Army of God. He only counts as 1/3 of a person.
Now is not the time to divide ourselves, to relish in letters by men long dead. Now is the time to come and work together in order to bring this country onto the right track. We are all citizens of this country, it is time to treat eachother as equals.

Well... many people do let their dogs in their living rooms, but I agree they have no place in any bedroom.

Still, you are a bit off topic. Feminism means women, not dogs.

i'm a quantum feminist. i may or may not be a feminist depending on the type of feminism being discussed and (more importantly) the gender of the person i'm discussing it with.

If you call yourself a feminist, you're only fooling yourself. Considering youse stance on transexuwlity in that thread about the basketballer and your 1960s-esque views on how female soldiers will reduce the "effectiveness" of units and distract them, well I can hardly see how you can call yourself a feminist. Being a neutral and objective libertarian you probably discount the idea of the patriarchy. Even if you don't none of your posts have displayed any feminist leanings.


And love you too Greek.

you mean the thread where i claimed it would be unfair for a former male who still has a partially male physique to play in a women's basketball league?

i'd say the same thing about a FtM playing in a men's league (where they could have, for example, a flexibility advantage due to having a partially female physique)

how exactly does that violate gender equality?

also, i had no idea that our species had evolved so much since 1960! your ideas are revolutionary and i want to subscribe to your newsletter, because i am out of toilet paper.

Do you ever tire of being smugly sarcastic?

And no, the fact that she had slightly more testorone according to you, even though the change had been ages ago, does not mean she should be excluded from games. Throughout the thread you displayed a childish approach to transexuality and equality for transexuals is fairly significant for feminism.

And our species haven't evolved in the slightest, but the social consensus has developed that yes women can work in the same workplace as men. A bandwagon you have decidedly not hopped onto in all your bravery. Not really sure how you can still try and call yourself a feminist despite all your childish views on these issues.
