No, the problem with femminism (or any other ideology) is that it doesn't work so well when the experiances of real, live, people come into play.....

Feminism aims for the equality of all people -how does that not work so well in the "everyday life-experiences of people?" Before you make such wide-ranging and totalistic comments -at least have some grasp of the topic first.

true feminism aims for the equality of men and women. the brand of feminism you often see today, even at western, aims for the superiority of women and the degradation of men. that's when it doesn't work well with everyday people, as biases rarely do.
12:01 and 8:39, i hope you are the first kind of feminist, because the second one really has no place on a university campus either.

Actually 7:36, if you read up on feminist theory, you are talking about radical feminism, which realistically comprises only about 5% of feminism. The first one you talk about, is liberal feminism, which is a larger percent.

I would argue that the feminism of the third wave is "inclusive feminism" which bell hooks argues for. This looks to make sure the category of "women" is equal. Thus it addresses ageism, ableism, homophobia, classism, racism (etc etc) in ADDITION to sexism.

First things first, I am guilty of owning two pairs of Uggs. When purchasing them, I must say, I was completely unaware of the affect that these boots were going to have on my life.

I mean, I put them on, and it was as though I was TRANSFORMED.
I was a DIFFERENT person.
All of a sudden, all I wanted to do was attend Western, dye my hair blonde, and have sex with as many people as I could wrap my legs around.

These Uggs have changed my life. Thanks to them, I would have never been stereotyped as a fucking blonde whore.

If you want to know the truth, spelling isn't that hard to learn. It's actually fairy easy. Just open a dictionary, find the first letter of your word and - POOF - you'll be spelling words correctly in no time at all.

Although it's true that ignorance IS bliss, being poor at spelling is gay.

"Same-sex intercourse carries the death penalty in five officially Muslim nations: Saudi Arabia, Iran, Mauritania, Sudan, and Yemen. It formerly carried the death penalty in Afghanistan under the Taliban, and in Iraq under a 2001 decree by Saddam Hussein."

"In Saudi Arabia, the maximium punishment for homosexuality is public execution, but the government will use other punishments, i.e. fines, jail time and whipping as alternatives, unless it feels that homosexuals are challenging state authority by engaging in a gay rights movement. Iran is perhaps the nation to execute the largest number of its citizens for homosexuality. Since its Islamic revolution in Iran, the Iranian government has executed more than 4000 people charged with homosexual acts."

My only point was that I really don't care if women expect different treatment. I have no problem opening a door or (sometimes) covering a bill.

Just a little bit of history about an earlier post. During the 70s the 'men's rights' movement developed -just focused on how all people need equality and how living up to the 'ideal' male role was very hard. However, by arguing for all people's equality, it removes the political context of the situation -not all people are treated equally. REMEMBER PEOPLE -while females may not want to take out the trash, it's usually them who are on their feet ringing through your groceries or taking care of your (future?) children at daycares, and cutting your hair. While you can bitch and complain that feminism is impractical and contradictory to female's actions - it is still females who, for the most part are stuck doing the crappy ass jobs as careers. Meanwhile, you probably don't think about these women because you are stuck in your middle-to-upper class bliss where your mothers and female friends have jobs as doctors and architects and engineers, etc. However, the majority of the women in the world don't quite have those cushy positions.

But, by the same token, you see women as cashiers, but the men are relegated to stocking shelves. And while you don't see many male daycare workers, you don't see many female mechanics, etc, either.

We are at univerisity, so try and act informed about stereotyping and get involved in activism please!

"Activism," in the context you're using it, is the tool of weak-minded,naive liberalism. The idea that the fact that "we are at univerisity" [sic] implies that we should be involved in such nonsense is absolute drivel, although I admit that it is popular drivel in Western (the heimsphere, not the university) institutions of "higher learning."

3:40, I don't think "liberalism" is the word you want to use here. "Liberalism" refers to the philosophy of John Stuart Mill, who was not exactly left-wing by today's standards. Maybe if you want to talk politics, you should read something.

9:44 - 3:40 isn't technically wrong. "Liberal" is one of those words that has two literally polar-opposite definitions.

If you're in economics or political economy, "liberal" usually refers to someone who is pro-capitalism, pro-free market, anti-welfare, conservative values etc.

If you're in political science or sociology, "liberal" usually means someone whose all for personal freedom, state intervention to help the less fortunate, social democracy etc. etc.

Good point. That said, as 12:01 realized, I meant social liberalism, which is the same meaning employed by most people in this part of the world who call themselves "liberal". You are right, however, that these people are effectively socialists, or at least have socialist sympathies. That, of course, is absolutely intolerable.

If you seriously don't understand that, then there is no point in discussing it. In terms of the naive socially liberal/"socialist" mindset I was deriding earlier, it's probably not a bad thing. I don't waste my time with people who think like that, however.

Just a response to all the activism stuff:
I think what a lot of people mean about getting active is just being aware of things that affect you, and doing something about them when it affects you negatively. Why this is relevant to students: we are receiving a higher education. Meaning we're supposed to be smart, as in, obtaining knowledge and forming insights. I've been on exchange in Europe for the past year, and it seems people here seem to know and care about that stuff a lot more than at home. And you know what? It's nice. It's nice to see people using their brains and energy for more than speculation about what next week's OC will have in store, or what bar they'll get hammered at.
It's not a liberal or socialist thing. It's a not being an apathetic tool taking whatever shit gets dished out to you thing.

This is 5:20. Thank you very much. Unfortunately, there are not so many people around here who seem to share my viewpoint. Indeed, I take perhaps the rarest political viewpoint among North Americans today: I a far rightist who is also anti-religion (well, the conventional Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions, anyways).

"Fun" is NOT the be-all end-all point of life. Western civilization in general needs badly to realize this before it comes back and smacks us square in the face. As for "state interference," there are many ideologies, mine included, that decry communism and social liberalism without also being against a strong state.

Communism gives the state more power, not less, though its ultimate goal is the stateless society.

"Social liberalism" is not a real political term. What the word "liberalism" connotes to us has nothing to do with what it really means. I think people are also looking for "socialism", which also allows the state more power and ownership. If you're talking about a form of government where the individual's actions are less inhibited, that's libertarianism. Libertarianism can appear both right and left. For example, it calls for lower taxes while at the same time advocating sexual liberty among citizens.

Fair enough.

I suppose we simply differ on "moral" issues.

I am a libertarian.
You are right that "fun" is not the "be all and end all" of life.

But at the same time, I believe that each individual should be free in their own "pursuit of happiness", so long as they do not harm others, without having arbitrary rules imposed upon them.
To me, a strong state is simply the enemy of liberty.

More specifically, I think that adults should be free to regulate their own sex lives, and I don't presume to know what is best for thers in that department.
