Real Feminism

Here are some snip its I have found of feminists, past and present, who really fight for gender equality, not pure women’s power.

I do not agree with most ‘women’s organizations’, or at least they don’t agree with me.

Groups like NOW are nothing more than female-supremacists.

However, it seems that some women’s groups in India are getting the gender issue right:

I couldn’t agree more.

Here is an interesting quote:

You want to be a free and independent comrade?  Well, then, accept the penalties as well as the pleasures of comradeship.

This is directed at women and feminists and it is a very truthful statement which many today seem to have a hard time grasping.

The kicker? That is from 1912, in response to the arguments over chivalry which rose after the sinking of the Titanic.

Here is the scan of the article it is from (taken from here):

There have always been women who understood the issue, it just seems their numbers haven’t grown much in the last century.

    The word ‘feminism’, in itself, is problematic.

    In my opinion, this word ought NOT to be employed in an honorific sense.

    It should be stigmatized in the interest of semantic hygiene.

    It should be reserved exclusively for things which the speaker or writer finds reprobate or dishonorable.

    If there is a “good” feminism, it ought to be referenced by a different name.
