Womens Liberation?

Are there any other guys out there who are just as strongly pissed off with the womens lib movement as I am?

I mean, I read cosmo and femina today, and it seems to me that women totally hate us, but at the same time want us. Now, Im totally for the liberation of women and all that. Heck, Id like to see women as equals in all spheres, but isn't this a bit too much? If women hate us so much, then why do the crib about not getting some guy they want, and how men are so thoroughly sickening, at the same time? Are these mags written by gals who cant hold a guy down or what?

:rofl: You're relying on Cosmo for information about feminism? Also, it hasn't been called women's "lib" for a long time...we've come a long way since needing to burn bras to get attention. Cosmo is the LAST magazine a feminist would read (actually, they'd only get it if they needed something to burn to keep warm and there was nothing else left that could be burned). The magazines are written by very superficial people to appeal to other superficial people to make lots of money, that's all there is to it.

:rofl: Read the wikipedia page on Cosmo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmopolitan_(magazine)

Wikipedia said:
The magazine currently features feminine topics such as sex, makeup and hair tips [...]
:bugeye:


Later in that paragraph we have
Wikipedia said:
Third-wave feminists have argued that although the present iteration of Cosmo was started to stop discrimination and empower women, it now contributes to women's oppression by inspiring uneasiness over their physical image, due to the magazine's venerated display of women's sexuality and statuesque body image
Wikipedia said:
In its January 1988 issue, Cosmopolitan ran a feature claiming that women had almost no reason to worry about contracting HIV long after the best available medical science indicated otherwise. The piece claimed that unprotected sex with an HIV-positive man did not put women at risk of infection, further stating that "most heterosexuals are not at risk" and that it is impossible to transmit HIV in the missionary position.

Why are you reading Cosmo?:rolleyes:
Even better question! :rofl: Actually, is there even anything in there to read? I thought it was all pictures and ads...a magazine for people who don't want to be burdened with actual reading. :rolleyes:

When reading the OP, I was certain it was a dead thread from 1978.

It is such an old complaint. It makes me think of rednecks in bars after their fifth shot of Jack.

For all this talk of women's liberation (actually this is the first I've heard of it in a long time), I've never actually met any women who behave this way. So I simply find it humorous enough that it doesn't concern me.

You had 8 baud modems at your disposal? You must have been working for the DOD. When I was in college, calculators were banned in tests and quizzes because a calculator (4-function Bomar) cost about 50% of the tuition for a semester. Luckily, I got to attend college at the time when women's lib (and the bra-less trend) had gotten well-entrenched here. The bra-less trend combined with the rising popularity of thin Indian-made tops made for comfy times. It's nice to hug up to a pal/love interest who is friendly and not trussed up in odd undergarments.

you folk make jokes about it, but fact of the matter are still making a 1/3 less, have glass ceilings in many professions including presidency, and thres a strong wind a blowin and a stacked supreme court trying to deny their autonomy--I'm not talking about a convenioent abortion but a conception achieved by forcible rape.
