Are Feminists just pursuing their shadows? Or what they need is just new Light....

I have studied feminism and their actions and seen that they are only pursuing their own shadows. I found out that feminists don't fight for equal rights with men as they say, but they actually want to be "higher" than men. It is seen in their rebellious quest to retaliate and over-power men. I think what they need to understand is that "equality" does not exist! All that happens is that men and women are both given different roles to contribute to life...... The problem is WOMEN SEE THEIRS AS INFERIOR. All they need is a new light to see this. Or what do you think?

    Sep 22 2012: its not true that most women see themselves as inferior. Men see them as inferior. if not why would you use the phrase - " higher than men" ?
    I am a woman and man is NOT my parameter.

      Sep 22 2012: I agree with you that few women see themselves as in inferior to men except in narrow categories like how much weight they can press. However, I do not think one can say that men in general see women as inferior. This varies among cultures and within cultures among men.
      • Sep 22 2012: Well Noted! Just like what Reisner said, it differs among Cultures...... That's really True! Thanks for that but I think my point is the case in my region.... And Yes with no doubt, men (not all though but a lot) see women as inferior; bring the phrases of religion to play!

      Sep 24 2012: But some feminists do and seem to see it as a competition. Btw, what would you think if I made a generalisation like that about all women?
