Brandon Goodall Posted 10 months ago Is There Still a Need for Feminism in Modern Society? Would you be against getting in a fist fight with a man? True equality is something most feminists say they want, but really do not. True equality would get rid of the "never hit a woman rule." You do not want that. I have no problem with women wanted to be independant, successful, powerful, influential or anything. Women have every right that men do. What I do have a problem with is when feminism turns into "Men are all pigs, I can hold my own door open, all men are rape machines, I am not just a baby making machine." Things like that. Now, I am not entirely sure that we live in a "rape culture", but that is still a very horrible and unfortunately common occurrence. Biologically, men are built stronger and larger than women, that's not some socially constructed idea, it's nature. That has evolved into the common "men are better" ideal because in the earlier stages of humanity, strength was the biggest part of success. If you were strong, you ate better, lived better and so on. As I stated before, I quite enjoy seeing women strive to become successful. It's healthy and inspires a sense of warmth. But when it gets pushed so far left that these women start aggressively tearing down anything resembling (even accidentally resembling) a stereotype just to show how independent they are, it gets annoying. I think the very existence of feminism is a bane to its cause. If women want to be treated equal, then having more women gather to shout about it doesn't help. It doesn't need a title, it doesn't need a battle cry and it doesn't need propaganda. In my mind, nothing promotes the female gender as equals more than a woman who worked hard to be successful. Without putting labels on it.
