14. No THIS is what turns me off about feminism

As well as any "ism: that comes down the pike.
And that it the rhetoric intended to intimidate people....If I complain bout it it means that I am a misogynist pig if I don't ignore the hyperbole and the sometimes ridiculous things that are said.
Any complaints about it is met with just the kind of post you posted....you are ether with us or against us, and we have seen the results of that.

I fully support women, black people and minority rights....not the hyperbole that goes with it...you show me a woman denied her rights and I will stand strongly with them until they get it...but I will not support badgering people about what they say and how they say it.
But what gives this kid a seat at the table is that he is just as valuable as you or me...there are no special class of people that get to sit at the table....and he was not "trying to sway Feminists to give it up"....unless you mean to give up the hyperbole and contentious.
And by the way, those are a very small group of people that do that...most women I have met don't do that...and they are not shrinking violets that just live to serve men...they are mostly intelligent and caring people that don't like the contentiousness of it any more than I do...but they rarely sit at your table cause they are not welcome.
