Feminism, at its absolute best, is nothing more than a specific redundancy in any good person's outlook (equal rights for all, regardless of sex, age, class, etc.). However, this is almost exclusively *not* what self-labelled feminists believe. They are usually driven to only correct issues where females have lower outcomes than men, disregarding entirely any confounding variables as to why the outcomes may be that way. If a woman makes less than a man it's because of discrimination and "the patriarchy" but if men pay higher rates for car insurance it's because they drive recklessly. This "logic" has poisoned almost all aspects of modern, mainstream feminism.

Basically, if a woman ranks lower than a man in anything, it's the man's fault for discriminating against her. If a woman ranks higher, it's the man's fault for not being as good as her. In the cases where women are worse off, the government needs to pass laws to make the difference either disappear entirely or favor women. If you act like this isn't the way feminism has evolved in Western societies you are only fooling yourself.

That being said, I don't think very highly of MRAs either, as it's yet one more reactionary movement which focuses on specific issues while ignoring others.

Very well said! +bub

I think the only issue I have with feminism is that they tend to do what you said about the MRA and be more of a "reactionary movement which focuses on specific issues while ignoring others."

Basically acting as though everything is in favour of men when in reality its not. I think one of the biggest negatives of being a man is the possibility of being drafted/conscripted. Its an unlikely situation but still terrifying :/
