Eliza Divine No matter what a group calls themselves, if there is a culture around them that suppresses what they try to say, then other people will not be receptive and will make excuses to uphold the status quo and put down the people that are already being put down, which is sort of what you just participated in Jennifer Stark.

Sat Naam Not to mention many men consider themselves feminist because they see at as a movement that promotes human rights and not a movement that promotes women.

Eliza Divine Maybe it's called feminism and those men aren't afraid to be called feminists because previously, and even today, some men are told to squash anything inside of them that could be considered feminine, or seem feminine because to be female is, in some cases, even in our culture today, considered to be less. Such as it being considered a high insult to call a man a woman or a girl.

Karen Daskawicz OK, so if we are talking about rape culture and your claim that many of the women in rape porn videos are sex slaves and not willing paid actresses, I need some data so I can respond appropriately.

Eliza Divine I gave you data on human trafficking and there's a host of websites online that you could use to research it. As far as whether the rape sites and which uses slaves and which uses models, I could privately point you to databases of thousands of them and you're welcome to go through and decide for yourself which groups are treating the women like human beings...that would be up to none of them...but more specifically which seem to be willing models and which seem to be unwilling. I am not an officer or an investigator in this matter, I pointed out a situation that is very likely and that I also know to have happened because in my teenage years I have run across some videos that were very very obviously not made with willing participants. If you would also like to take them as two different circumstances, then you may, because each one is debilitating enough to the way women are treated and whether or not they are regarded in general by some aspects of society as human beings capable of making their own decisions and capable of saying "no" to sex.

Mark Graves Feminism ALWAYS portrays men out as rapists and criminals!
What about incidences when men are raped? Why isn't there outcry about that. Rape is bad of course but women aren't the only victims.
Also please do some research about the Wage Gap MYTH. The Huff post even did a write up of that garbage. Don't be ignorant.

Sat Naam This just makes me sad to see how much misinformation is propagated through seemingly intelligent human beings. Feminists do fight for male birth control. Feminists do fight for violence against men. No one wants special treatment. Everyone wants inequality to disappear. I am not a feminist, I am a human being that supports other human beings that want to promote goodness. not condescension. respect for any and all.

Eliza Divine Mark, I do not work with any feminists or feminists group who paint men as all being rapists and criminals. I think you're falling for the straw feminist ideology. You're currently portraying all feminists to be something they are generally not, so it shouldn't be surprising that that happens sometimes, that people don't understand one another so they make up assumptions about who they are. I work with feminists who have this radical notion that men are also human beings capable of being non-violent towards other human beings, and that that should be expected as a norm for all society.

Eliza Divine Also, Mark, I mentioned prison rape against large numbers of men in my examples of rape culture, because rape in those situations are considered a norm and not considered something that can and should be changed, which is...rape culture.

Eliza Divine Feminists are just usually the people who point out that it's actually a PROBLEM when men rape and attack women, and who actually stand up and say that something needs to change and be done about it, which is usually when the status quo society accuse them of being against men instead of being against violence.

Eliza Divine And "normal people," those well behaved men and women throughout history, have often been ignored or shunned or shamed for speaking up. This went on for hundreds of years. Normal people can speak up among people who aren't listening until they're blue in the face. It's usually when people get sick and tired of things the way they are, the status quo, and the fact that it was considered acceptable, when they gang together and create a movement is when they actually make history, make change, and are heard (but apparently still put down for what they're saying.) If it weren't for feminism, it would still be legal and culturally acceptable here for you or any other man to beat their wives. We now know that to be assault, because of feminism. We now don't consider that an acceptable part of our culture because of feminism. And you might not want to do all of those things, but chances are you might have been taught growing up not to do all those things because of these radical notions and these radical people.

Eliza Divine No, it's really not ok for you to be hateful or to say those kinds of things against good people working to be heard. You don't get to tell women what they do or do not want to be. You don't get to tell all men what they do or do not want. You are currently trying to treat those groups of women and men as less than human beings. And that statement, by the way, that you just made...is why I need and adore feminism.

Eliza Divine I don't care if you or any other men want me to be more feminine and a little more quiet or to not call myself a feminist or to shave my armpits or laugh at your silliest jokes or tell you it's ok to hate on people who stand up for themselves. I would rather be a full Autonomous human being and be regarded as such, not as someone for society to dress up and have behave as they please because of nonsense cultural gender norms. Screw gender. I'm a human being, and I will behave as I choose. I will not harm and I will encourage others not to harm. I will not hate and I will encourage others not to hate. And yes, I will point out bigotry, double standards, and violence in our cultures and communities that are not acceptable.
