Congrats on getting your material conditions closer to equality in a single place in time and space. The rest of the world is of course the same thing, following the almighty metropolis.

And what you mention is only the backlash of sexism. We will see if now things will really go towards equality, or if Structuralism is right and sexism is inherent to Capitalism.

I just read a little book recently called Sexual Textual Politics about French and Anglo-American feminism, Showalter and all those fine ladies. I can tell you now after reading it that women are seriously weird.

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. 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.
I missed you, bro.

That's an interesting perspective, but you have no one to blame for this than other feminists who demanded that women be treated this way by the courts. Staying true to feminist form, and much as the skeptics predicted, these pro-feminists reforms were apparently not good enough and now feminists consider these pro-feminists reform to also oppress women.

Are feminists fighting against this type of 'sexism'? No.

Yes, we have lost the paradise! And it's all because of women and Adam. That's a henpeck

Things aren't going to go towards "equality" because men and women aren't "equal" to begin with. Both genders are fundamentally different. This isn't my opinion, this is scientific fact. Unless feminists are going to start genetically engineering humans to be genderless, then "equality" between the genders will not and can not ever be reached. Men are naturally taller, physically stronger, less emotional, and more aggressive, while women are naturally smaller, physically weaker, more emotional and more passive. With few exceptions in the animal kingdom, it doesn't matter if we are discussing humans, dogs, cats, or chimpazees. Of course feminists don't like rational science since it exposes their entire movement for the circle jerk that it is, so they prefer to ignore it.

Yes. Of course, they are fighting sexism. As soon as equality is achieved sexism will end and all it's manifestations.

And there is only one sexism, of man dominating women.
