Should Feminism Still Exist in America?

Feminism sounds good by definition, but because of the crazy social justice warriors it has gone out of control. As a girl, I personally feel like we don't need it, but I would still like to hear other opinions.

No they shouldn't exist because feminism is cancer. Their ruining our country. The first and wave of feminists were actually good, because they fought for real equality, like voting rights. Nowadays, they just abuse men, and try to ban Father's Day. They pretend that the wage gap is a thing, and try to blame men for everything. So I say that we don't need feminism because men and women already have equality.

Should Feminism Still Exist in America?

No, absolutely not. I'd like to see someone give evidence of specific rights afforded to men, but not women. Oh wait, I can think of some; being in prison a significantly longer time and at a significantly higher rate and being the subject of discrimination by feminists. Women, on the other hand, can accuse men of rape without evidence with the accused still receiving consequences, and, in some places, are paid more than men.

I agree that the 3rd wave of feminism was a mistake, but that doesn't mean we don't need to get rid of feminism entirely. There IS a wage gap, and that has to change. Women are still subject to prejudice in the army, and the US has a sexist, abusing President. While countries like Iraq and Afghanistan need feminism a lot more than the US does, feminism still has a part to play in America.

NEWS FLASH! This is still America! (Until Trump and the religious right turn it into a Christian Iran)! We have the right to have gun agendas, abortion agendas, choice agendas, feminist agendas. When the right has torn up that "piece of paper" we call the Constitution, you can do away with ALL the agendas, ALL the Amendments, and we can live under autocratic rule. THAT will put U.S. under the 7 Mountain agenda of the Dominionists and Evangelists of the right wing. Then women will "toe the line", we will be "house checked" to see if we are living under Biblical directives, be forced to attend the winning church of the U.S. (After they kill off the Catholics, Methodists, Mormons ... or whichever they decide is NOT the REAL religion)! Enjoy the privileges of Iran ... Christian style. Oh, and only trusted members of the church will have the guns. :-(

Where did you get that all right-wingers are extremists?

When the right has torn up that "piece of paper" we call the Constitution

I'm sorry, what right-leaning colleges are barring leftists and liberals from speaking? I haven't heard of any instances. But, I have heard of left-leaning colleges bar conservative speakers like Steven Crowder and Ben Shapiro. Secondly, the Republican party supports gun rights. It's you leftists trying to take away the Second Amendment.

It's you leftists trying to take away the Second Amendment.

Not take it away, bring it back to its original intent. The founders who wrote the second amendment certainly didn't foresee a day when a single man could hold in his hands the firepower equivalent to an entire regiment of soldiers of their day. The weapon of their time, the weapon they had in mind when the second amendment was written, was the muzzle loading musket.

You'll be able to 'bear' as many muzzle loading muskets as you can carry, providing of course you belong to a well regulated militia.

That's where this is going to end up because guns nuts can't restrain themselves. They've abused the 2nd amendment for far too long and the sane majority has had enough. Weapons technology continues to advance and if they aren't stopped they'll all be walking around with WMD's pretending they're looking for a deer to shot.

Almost nothing you said is anything I have said. I never said ALL right-wingers are extremists. (There ARE a few [enough] of them IN POWER), to be dangerous.

I never said RW colleges are barring leftists. I think a college, whether left leaning OR right, should consider barring dangerously radical speakers from EITHER side. If I were President I would not allow Hitler to "have a national platform on OUR TV to spread his hate. The President of a college should have the same right when the person is EXTREME. Secondly, I don't know of any but EXTREME Democrats that do NOT support the Second Amendment, or do not support gun rights. You rightists spread those idiotic rumors as the NRA has convinced you that you MUST! We want REASONABLE background checks, we don't feel a bunch of alpha males (or females) actually NEED a weapon of war! Semi-automatic hunting rifles, non-assault shotguns, even handguns (that are unlike Uzis) are fine. Things that are "sprayable" are really just ego machines!

Please, I don't mind you being childish and designating me an "enemy", but don't take words out of my mouth that were never there!

It should. Not the shit show that modern leftist stand by, not the third wave feminism. I believe we need people like Christina Hoff Sommers. Even though women do have so much more than we did back then and we technically don't really need it, there are some areas where women could use some support.
