I may not get this out the way i really want to so please don't read this thread with me in a tone of anger, sarcasm or anything else, please just read it as emotionless words. I am all for equal rights for women and i think it's stupid how women used to be treated. I think that today it is pretty much as equal as it is going to get but i know that in some places and in some people there is still alot of room for change. I do however, feel that feminism is taken too far too often. I think that some women that are 'feminists' (i'm not saying all women!) use sexism as an excuse. this theory of mine isn't limited to just feminism, i believe it applies to all sort of 'groups' like colour, religion etc... I think that if a women gets turned down for a job and it gets given to a man, and she says that she didn't get the job because she is a woman, and the thought that maybe she just isn't qaulified doesn't even cross her mind. i know that i'm picking on women (i am one by the way) and please don't feel that i am attacking anyone and don't take anything i said personally, i just don't like it that people use things like gender, race and religion as reasons for their problems in life instead of thinking that maybe they did or didn't do something. what do you think? was anyone offended? do you know anyone like this?
