When feminist friends ask you your thoughts

March 9, 2017

RPW, if you do have remnants of feminist friends from the past, if they straight out ask you what your views are on left wing feminism, what do you say? Do you decline to talk about it (knowing that your views are the opposite) or do you politely give them an overview of traditionalism?

My views aren't entirely the opposite, just because I believe in embracing feminity does not mean I believe women should be denied the vote or not allowed to work. I just point out that today the word feminism is often used as a disguise for misandry and I don't want to be associated with it.

I support equality, always have and always will. I just feel equality means treating everyone equally based on their strengths and weaknesses not on their gender.

I have no problem talking about my traditionalist views to anyone, even to Feminists. Their opinions on how I live my life don't really matter to me.

Unless they're bat shit crazy. Then I don't even talk to them in the first place because no one has time for crazy.

Nobody got time for that. A good jingle.

Weak people rely on group identity for self-worth. This is especially true with groups that require little to no measurable performance in the selection process IE groups based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and so on.

Rugged individualism is a term that once had clear meaning. identity rules. We are not better for the change.

Underrated post.

Oh I enjoy it. You see most feminists I encounter are fat, white and crazy colour hair ones. Or hipster guys. They can't rebut me because I'm a small Asian woman. I win their stupid oppression standards already.

It depends.

As a general rule, I don't engage in endless argument. I'd gladly engage in discussion or a debate where there is a purpose and end to the argument in sight. If it's just to waste time arguing, I'm uninterested.

OTOH, I'm not shy about expressing my views to anyone. If they start an argument, I may just smile or answer the first question and that's it. If the person starts getting rude, I let them know that we can discuss it a different time.

If it's a person who is capable of listening and being respectful to ideas and thoughts which aren't 'heretical', 'blasphemy' or otherwise 'triggering', yes.

If not, it's either a waste of time, or a time when I choose to be an asshole.

If I'm asked I will always explain my disagreements with feminism. Obviously the anti "3rd wave" opinion, although this isn't exactly revolutionary (DAE SJWs?!), but also more traditionalist views as well. Pointless debates are best avoided but if asked why lie? Just be polite and explain your viewpoint as it's much better to make someone think than just hate you.

Feminism is a shit test. Even women should treat it as such. So if she does ask, agree and amplify... "Of course we need feminism... To this day, I won't eat manicotti because it says man in it, and it's a long noodle that squishes out white stuff if you touch it."

[–]radioactivities92 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That's great line. Makes me wanna eat some epic level cheesey lasagna tho.

[–]vanBeethovenLudwigEndorsed Contributor0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Amazing line!!! I actually say "I believe women should have a choice" (but omit the "if you choose to be a bitch then you also choose to be single...")

[–]flyingwaterlilly2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Whenever they bring up the "oppression" topic, I tell that that I don't feel oppressed, and that I feel happy with my life. When she tries to debate, I then say, why she would dare to question my "feelings" and my "living experience"? That shuts them up real quick. ;)

the title of this post needs a meme

[–]Nyquil-Junkie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Faced with that I would probably tell her she'd be much happier in the kitchen.... making me a sammich.

You know.... just to make her head explode.

[–]YoungYogiMama0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I tell them that women (in America) have every right men have, that men actually get screwed in several ways, that i oppose abortion & explain why the wage gap is a myth. Depending on the person i might tell them i think its all whiny entitled nonsense.

I'm never rude or preachy about it. I don't bring it up on my own ever. But if someone asks me, i'm happy to calmly explain my views on modern feminism.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
