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.
Or spiders. Or ancient human matriarchal society.

And there is only one sexism, of man dominating women.
What will finalise equality? What are the last hurdles to end the need for feminists?

Have you ever heard of the theory of Superstructure and Infrastructure by Marx? I bet not. The Superstructure is the Ideological part of society, while the Infrastructure is the material part of society, one influences each other but it's neither instantaneous and neither magically automatic.

Even if materially man and women are alike, this doesn't guarantees that Ideologically the superstructure is not sexist and doesn't leads again into inequality and male dominance over female. However, the opposite is also true, as in early Soviet Russia (Until Stalin came in)

EDIT: As my post partly answers yours, let me conclude: Changing the Superstructure and ending the cultural sexism and changing the Infrastructure and ending material inequality. This way, if the Structuralists are incorrect, sexism will end. If Structuralism is correct, the struggle was all for nothing and Sexism will return because the Infrastructure of the Capitalist system is intact and Structuralists argue that it is inherent to Capitalism the sexism and economic inequality between man and women.

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.
I wonder why American ( Canadian, British ect ) men are still marrying.

Ironic as Brazilian women are amongst the sexiest on the planet, perpetuating a society of sublime sexuality though totally comfortable within that milieu. Have you been to Ipanema lately? There's nothing to be embarrassed about.

???

Sexism is domination of women by men
Being sexy is another thing
Sexuality, another
Seksu is a rock band

and so on...

Post Scriptum 1: "Have you been to Ipanema" I'm sorry have you been to Florida lately?

Post Scriptum 2: Please take for granted that every post of mine is either about Communism, is deeply Cynical/Ironic or both. I was making a comment on you thinking that as I am Brazilian I must automatically go to Ipanema every weekend.

I think that every generation tries to live the lives of the last one, and everyone wants to find love. More and more men are refusing marriage in North America thanks to the lopsided divorce laws and unrealistic demands made by a large segment of feminist-influenced modern women.

Overall though, feminism has damaged women far more then men, IMHO. My heart churns whenever I see a 40 year old, unmarried, single corporate-drone cat-lady who still clings to feminist ideology when it has led her to nothing but a bitter, lonely life. Ironically, once at that point, they tend to become even more invested in feminism despite it's obviously negative effects on her overall happiness and relationships.

Stumbled across this video a couple months ago. This southern belle really gets it, and breaks it down for the buffoons at FOX news:

Gah! I've had more equality than I've wanted. Take it back!

Please, open my car door and drive. Open the doors for me, I'll smile. Take out my trash, and I'll bring you a nice beer. Shovel my snow, and I'll bring you all the hot chocolate (laced with your choice of alcohol) that you can consume. Carry in my groceries, and I'll cook and clean up dinner while you relax in your favorite chair in front of the TV.

Signed with Love,
