Last year, celebrated music journalist Maura Johnston came up with four suggestions for those struggling to not write misogynistically: do not assign descriptive words based on a subject’s gender, do not “make shit up about an artist in order to sexualize her,” do not exclusively compare female artists to other female artists, and do not mistake a subject’s politeness for flirtation, then write about it extensively.

I consider men to be less worth than women but also more competent than women. Where does that put me? Male chauvinst or feminist?

That just assures them that you are a total male chauvinist. :)

Honestly, I think feminism has gone too far and is now hurting its own cause. I agree women should have equal rights and be able to vote. I agree that they should have an equal chance at being hired. But I have seen feminist women verbally attack other women who didn't work but stayed home and raised kids. These outspoken ones may be a minority, but from any feminist I have met it seems to be a constant. Those that I have met also tend to hate men or hold them in a negative light. This creates a poor image for those of us who aren't "in" with them and makes us lean away from them.

The thing that bothers me the most is that there are a lot of passive men and women out there and they both get made fun of by their own gender. [/ramble]

How is that? I am saying men are less worth than women, how can I be a male chauvinst while saying that?

This makes you a feminist? Nah, anytime you say that men are "more" you are anti-feminism.

But how can I be male chauvinst if I say women are worth more than men? Sounds like you haven't thought this through. Just sticking me with the first label you can think of.

There's two halves to your sentence.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

And remember: if a sentence has the word "but" in it, you should only take notice of the the words after "but".

I'm sorry, but when you add both of your combined vague statements.
a) Men have less worth than women
b) [Men] are more competent than women

a+b= men and women are not equal

Now you are blaming me for calling you a male chauvinist and you are surprised? Either you are trolling me or you are back pedaling.

It was a label that you provided.
