True of COVID-19 sufferers and of George Floyd. The key phrase at this moment in American history.
"I can't breathe, said Floyd as he was being suffocated. "I can't breathe" thought more than 100,000 victims as they were dying of Covid. "I can't breathe" chanted countless Americans in the streets, protesting enduring police brutality.

The biggest disgrace to my gender.

Feminism used to be about women getting the same rights as men, such as the right to vote and equal pay at work.
Now feminism is a movement full of women who seem to think that their ability to push a baby out of their vagina entitles them to bigger and better everything.
I am a young woman and I disagree with feminism.
It is pretty hypocritical to expect to be treated special because you are a female (such as tighter laws concerning rape or more leniancy if a woman becomes pregnant) yet they get upset when they aren't being treated exactly like a man. The feminists need to realize that women are not better than men. They are EQUAL. You don't see any laws that provide special treatment for men do you?

Example: Once I saw a feminist say that abortions should be legal AND be free. I am all for abortion rights, but demanding that it be free because your ass couldn't use the proper birth control before spreading your legs is absured.

And before you pull the rape card on me, keep in mind that if you go to the hospital after being raped, they give you medications to prevent pregnancy. I see no reason for free abortions.

A relentless political advocacy group pushing for special privileges for women, which pretends to be a social movement advocating equal rights for the genders. Because women have already achieved more than equal rights, a modern feminist is either an ignoramus or a liar. Current feminist dogma is based either on lies, or on emotional appeals. Shaming tactics are used to defend their position and to silence opposition. The central tenant of feminism is a belief in the patriarchy, which is in a giant amorphous conspiracy in which men conspire to oppress women. Because patriarchy can be used to explain everything, and there is no event which could possibly take place to disprove its existence, patriarchy theory is on the same level of intellectual honesty as astrology and homeopathy.

Accomplishments of Feminism:
-- Rewriting history to make people think that feminism earned women the right to vote and to work outside the home. What really happened was that technological advances made it possible for the first time in human history for women to be financially independent. When this happened, women asked for equal rights, and men gave it to them.
-- Making men and women hate each other.
-- Turning women in the US, UK, and some other western countries into vicious, useless, self-entitled cunts.
-- Destroying men's dignity, and in some cases their rights.
Feminism:

Feminists Claim: Women are more likely to be victims of violence.
Reality: Unincarcerated men are more likely to be victims of every type of violent crime than unincarcerated women, apart from rape. The majority of total rapes happen to men in prison.

Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics

Feminist Claim: Women make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns, and this is discrimination.
Reality: The 77 cents statistic comes form comparing nurses and hair stylists to doctors and lawyers. When one factors in things like work hours, work experience, education, and job position, women make closer to 95 cents for every dollar a man earns.

Sources: You should go to wikipedia and click on the little squares. Some of those squares include sources like consad research corporation, and Times.

Feminist Claim: There is work place discrimination against women.
Reality: More laws have been passed in the past several decades protecting women from dirty jokes than laws have been passed protecting men from dying. Affirmative action for women is explicit discrimination against men, and there is no such institutionalized discrimination against women. Women are the only ones who have the right to sue for having their feelings hurt.

An ideology defined by the following equation: F = (A + B) - C. Feminism equals Avarice plus Bigotry minus Conscience. Its most recent incarnation is characterized by supremacist whining, a form of double-think that would have made Orwell retch. Men are constantly reminded by feminists that women are taking the majority of jobs, starting more businesses than men, and generally acquiring more and more wealth at the expense of men. At the same time, feminists complain continuously about women's economic "oppression," (as though men have never been oppressed by impossible child support payments or unconscionable alimoney awards), the phoney "wage-gap" and the need for greater "equalization" (i.e. further plundering of men's earnings) in the economic sphere. Thus feminism gleefully predicts that men will become utterly disempowered while blithely demanding that they continue to subsidize the process. While perpetrating this nonsense, feminism still finds time to demand any prerogatives it deems fit to invent, squabble childishly about toilet seats AND AT THE SAME TIME complain about men's reluctance to commit to marriage (which, of course, is itself condemned as a misogynistic institution whenever it is expedient to do so). These are examples of the intellectual elasticity that allows feminism to present itself as correct on any issue, regardless of the facts or the eventual outcome. This, in turn, guides us to feminism's core philosophy: "Our say-so makes it so; if our pronouncements contradict each other, you males are required to believe both but only to the extent that they run counter to your interests and in favor of our convenience. This rule is absolute until it yields an outcome we don't like. Then we will pretend - and you are required to believe - that it never existed. Oh, and you are evil and sexist if you point to any flaw in this philosophy, even after we've abandoned or changed it. But you are a patronizing bastard if you fail to give our point-of-view your full critical consideration ... just as long as you don't disagree with it ... or agree with it for the wrong reasons ... and we will from time-to-time declare what the right and wrong reasons are ... and then change them to suit ourselves."
Feminism is nothing more than the politics of convenience.

Political and cultural movement aimed at gaining equal rights & priviledges for women. This definition differs slightly, but significantly, from the standard definition: movement for equal rights between men & women. For example, the issue of shared custody would definitely refer to equal treatment for both sexes, but is not popular among feminists. Neither is the issue of boys falling behind girls in school. This is not to say that feminism is about man hating, which is a misconception that some women, as well as men, have. Women, who use equal rights rhetoric to dis men, are not really being feminists.
We can thank feminism for laws against sexual harassment in the workplace. She thinks she's a feminist because she says all men are jerks.
