On feminism: awesome video

24 Apr

Mostly because of language, this may not be safe for work for some, particularly those employed by conservative outfits.

I disagree with one, perhaps two of the reasons Ms Green gives for her being a feminist, but on the whole, this is a most excellent list, and I love this comment:

I thoroughly enjoyed this video because it points out one of the most infuriating misconceptions to people outside academia:

Feminism wants to deconstruct all gender double standards. This serves to benefit men as well. Conscription? Feminism has an issue with that. Comparatively harsh prison sentences? Feminism has an issue with that. Custody bias? Teaching men not to feel or express emotions? Emphasis on bulking up?

You guessed it: we have problems with those.

    I’m a feminist because not being a feminist is kinda self-hating.
