    I adore this. Perhaps one of my fav 22 word posts ever.

    Stacey, you don’t know what feminism is. Saying it’s about hating men and degrading things women care about is like saying anti-racism is about hating whites and degrading what white people care about. I also don’t know where you got the idea that feminism is about being ashamed of being a woman (and why you would bring that up about three women, BTW, who used male pseudonyms because they thought that it would get them taken more seriously).If I were you, I’d read a few books and talk to a few women who call themselves feminists, and then start flapping your gums (or tippling your fingers) about what feminism is, instead of getting your definitions from Fox News, the Daily Mail, or whatever second-grade-level rubbish it is that’s convinced you feminism is about hating men and being ashamed of women. Because frankly the definition you’re running on now is so false that it makes you look illiterate.

    Thanks for that, Paperchaser… I was fairly shocked by Stacey’s comment. I wrote my dissertation on the relevance of the feminist argument in the 21st century, and I was actually quite offended to see that some people are still so tragically misinformed :SFeminists have never, EVER set out to prove that one gender is “better” than the other! Of course there are different schools of thought on the subject, but most acknowledge that men and women are inherently, biologically different. We know that women differ from men in much the same way that most women differ from other women! We simply want to be treated equally in social situations, the workplace and in politics, regardless of whether you have a more ‘feminine’ or ‘masculine’ personality.On that note, feminism is not even reserved for women! I strongly believe that men can also be feminists – and many men are. It simply means they agree with the fact that we have the right to vote and to receive equal pay, etc.I originally wanted to make a funny comment about the Brontesaurus, but now the mood has been killed… :S

    Not sure if this is bizarre or hilarious(or both)

    Just one problem…The assumption that any thinking, independent, capable woman is a feminist. That is completely untrue—and is untrue of the Bronte sisters (if you read their books). The sisters did not hate men. They believed that marriage should be built on something more that social status.The sisters were not ashamed to be women, but apparently feminists are. They degrade things women care about (like raising their own children, or looking and feeling feminine) while insisting that they can be better men than men are.Thankfully, women everywhere are realizing that it is not shameful to be a woman, and they are admitting that life is not a competition between the sexes (it’s a partnership)—and they’re telling the feminists where to go. 🙂

    I agree with Stacey. I like this video and find it pretty hilarious (I also am a big fan of their books) but I was sort of bothered by the incorrect use of feminism
