17. asking feminists to "sweeten up" their message to appeal to you is pathetic. making human rights

issues palatable to you should not be their main concern. Why would you think assuaging your ego should be central to women's concerns? Seriously?

And when activists are having discussions about their purpose and aims, any idiot who spews sexist regressive shit off the top of their heads is NOT going to be listened to. This goes for any group- not just feminists. You actually have to do some work, have some knowledge of the topic at hand if you don't want to be laughed out of the room. The swill this kid was pitching was right out of Fox news, if he was any older, he'd not be treated so kindly. Just a reality check for you.
