...what are your thoughts on it?


I was actually pleasantly surprised that they really didn't force any sort of viewpoints on the viewers.

I tried to find some info on what I mean by militant feminism, which is radical feminism.

No, I never argued that you were saying all feminists are arguing for it. What I said is your representation of the crux of third-wave feminism is inaccurate. Just like one person saying abortions are great is not representative of most pro-choicers, one woman fighting to the death to change nomenclature is not representative of the major causes of most feminist groups. In fact, I'll start a thread about a current issue now.

But it's a really ambiguous term. What exactly does "militant feminism" mean, and who does it describe? Lesbian separatists? Women who advocate imposing women's rights legislation on developing countries? Certainly not NOW, which is one of the most bland feminist organizations out there. NOW is almost exclusively equity feminism. Militant feminism, then, is so vague that it's as much a boogeyman term as feminazi, which also doesn't mean anything at all.

< and hey public parks were built before I was born and I use them so were public libraries should I be grateful to whomever built them? >

Yes. You should. You are benefiting from their efforts. What is difficult to understand about that?

( But it's not exactly honest to say "I will not ... accept their help" when you accept their help each and every day by your actions. If you've ever voted, owned something, had custody and rights to your children, obtained birth control or done so many other things without the help of a man then you have accepted their help. And you will continue to accept their help each and every time you do those things for the rest of your life. That is what I meant when I said that you are affected by what feminism has done )

Yes, this - a thousand times!!

Actually, I was watching a biographical about Stephen Mather, and hwo it was his doing that set aside the land and instituted the National Park Service. I think we are ALL indebted to his foresight, determination and hard work. Even if we never set foot in a park.

As for libraries, you would owe your gratitude to Andrew Carnegie. I also add the benefactors of museums, hospitals to the list of those to whom we should be grateful. Must you by law? No. I don't give a flip if you credit anyone for anything in your life. But I will hold that ethically, you should do so willingly.

I read your post and I disagree. If you believe that showing a woman being tackled is promoting domestic violence, it shouldn't matter who paid for or is sponsoring the ad.


Doesn't matter if you disagree, I know what I posted and it isn't what you are trying to spin off, but, for the record, I didn't find the FOTF ad to promote DV.

>Any person of african descent in this country owes the same thank you to all the abolitionists and civil rights activists that went before<

It is not just AA's who IMO should be thankful to be born in a time period after abolition but all of us. One of the best Dr's I ever had was an AA man who trained in the US.

Everyone benefits from equality.
