Modern feminism is not about equality, it's about female privilege.

God created woman from the rib of a man, then she was responsible for getting us kicked out of paradise, now they won't cook a dinner, they follow us around to watch and play our sports, they had the snugs in the pubs pulled down, spent so much money on my credit card that the last time she lost it, I didn't cancel it because they guy who robbed it was spending less than she was, they have to be in the mood to have sex (never a problem for me I might add but so my mates tell me), they need to be listened to all the time but they won't listen to you, expect you to freeze as long as they are warm, are experts at lying and use emotional blackmail all the time. Why oh why was I born a hetrosexual male? Good thing I'm an expert on the female species or I'd be gone mad long ago

We wouldn't need feminism if men weren't so idiotic.

Actually women winning the majority of child custody decisions is sexist as it considers women more fit for childcaring (And therefore less fit for other activities)

I myself suffered from it as my mother is a worse "mother" than my father but still they gave me to her.

Sexism is not about Men > Women is about a false division of labour which results in male economic domination over women.

It's not about idiotism it is about the material conditions of our society, which reproduces the economic domination of man over women of early industrialization to it's (system's) favour.

God created me (Eve) from Adam's rib and what happens? I go to eat an apple and he says ' I don't think you should do that' ...I mean, what the hell? It's an apple! So, I nagged the crap out of him until he just agreed and ate the damn apple. Ha, I knew I was right. Anyway, since then we had to down grade our lush garden of paradise to a more...hmmm.. desolate area of the neighbourhood. Adam is constantly making snide remarks at how great it was in paradise and how it's all MY fault he ate the apple! How was I supposed to know God was serious when he said not to eat those apples or else? I say things I don't mean all the time..

Don't be daft. Feminism hasn't been about equality for a very long time. It's now about getting women special privileges. They want the benefits of being man without the burdens of responsibility.

If you compare American women to American men under the age of 35, American women are by far more privileged than men according to feminists own definition of privilege. They make more money, are more educated, are far less likely to go to prison, far less likely to be homeless, and far less likely to commit suicide. Yet feminists continue to demand that the justice system becomes even more unequal against men. How many men have been completely fleeced and left at age 45 broke, destitute, and sometimes facing prison time due to the anti-male slant of the justice system? She simply has to say she wants a divorce, for whatever reason, and most likely that means that her husband will be completely ruined. 80% of divorces are initiated by women and they usually receive the house, often without contributing a dime to it, and they almost always receive the children. A woman practically has to be smoking a crackpipe in the courtroom in order for the father to be awarded custody.

Yet despite all of this feminists claim that women are still oppressed and things aren't "equal" enough.
