Keeping the memory alive, of real feminist women who were fighting for equal rights, and not trying to be men.

    Interesting. Can’t say I’ve ever looked into it, but I would’ve thought either image would’ve endorsed the ‘more like men’ viewpoint, by adopting a masculine trope. Obviously you have to read between the lines.

    Would you say Biedel is more feminine than Rosie or less?

    If you want my pay, pickup my shovel and match my work, PERIOD. (ok pull out the chair and run my network as well, and you’re welcomed to my pay scale, really). The revisionist equalization of work is what gets me…And then the attitudes, is Rosie more or less feminine? What does feminine mean anymore when all you see on TV and Film are Tramps? The Britney Spears Generation doesn’t have a clue and that’s ok…Arguments and polarization are much better for commercial and sales than rational thought and ethics… But no, Rosie is not as feminine…She’s rolled up her… Read more »

    Two different Rosie’s being mentioned in this thread makes my heard hurt. Those of you who said this is about hard work not about femininity: Your right. And this isn’t the first time its happened. All over the world women have had to take care of the home while any men capable of war went off to it. If the only men you have are children and seniors, the women are going to have to do some work. It wasn’t quite like this during WWII, but enough men were gone that there many jobs to fill. The women then did… Read more »

    @dieAntagonista: Lol, I think you have the Obama / Oprah relationship a little backwards. Ophrah is a fucking billionaire, largely due to her own entrepreneurial spirit. I agree about O’Donnell, never heard of Ditto, but they are not indicative of American society on a whole, just indicators of where the outer limits are of what some will find acceptable. The feminist thing arose primarily from the women that had to take over all the jobs that the fighting men left. Those men came back and demanded their jobs back, but some of the women said no and then promptly burnt… Read more »

    Sounds like somebody’s got the Ancient Greece spirit (concerning the roles and status of women)…

    My friend Arkeith HATES Oprah, too (for other reasons); he’s from Chicago and can tell you some more BS that she pulls.

    And, Alexis Bledel looks good in this pic.

    Oprha is a “product”. Unfortunatly, so is Obama, a very Bright, appealing one, but a product none the less, just another politician >>ducks for Cover<< These people, may they be white, black, asian or w/e are pedestal pieces for the people…so I don’t rate their accomplishments because I understand they have been picked, groomed and setup for us to be in awe of… Is this kind of crap www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/10/craig_wood_in_fire_blokes_call/ That pisses me off… After the Election coverage in the states, I’ve my lot of lying stats and figures… dieAntagonista said: “She is the reason why so many women believe that,… Read more »

    @gx5000:
    @dieAntagonista:
    Oprah is brilliant, in an evil genius sort of way. See, women who are actually happy and living fulfilled lives would quit watching her show. Therefore, she deliberately gives bad advice so that women will continue to be unhappy and continue to watch her show. There’s generally no profit in actually helping people.

    Okay everyone is too hung up on the feminist revolution and on America, that they are missing the point: Alexis Bledel is a complete little hotty!

    I don’t know a lot about Oprah, but isn’t she from Chicago? The Obamas are also from Chicago. There is prolly more than a race connection. If I remember correctly, Obama was the first candidate she ever endorsed and for that reason she did no political shows during the campaign. I guess what I mean is her relationship w/ the Obamas is prolly much more complicated than just we’re the same race/color.

    DieA – I just don’t agree with your modern definition of feminism and who needs it. The mentality that feminists are man hating butch dykes is total backlash because the American culture isn’t ready to really balance the genders out and they won’t be until the we start taking better care of our children (the boys specifically). As long as we are actively removing empathy from one group of people, there will be a group of people that will be able to comfortably dominate others. Just because American women have it better than women in 3rd world countries does not… Read more »

    How is it possible I agree with bothoutofocus and dieAntagonista? I guess I totally agree with what outofocus said, but I’m not going to go around calling myself a feminist, because I know a lot of people will automatically label me as a Rosie O’Donnel-type and annoying as fuck. But at the same time I’ve been interested in real feminist stuff lately, but I’m reluctant to even *try* to find a book or a website, because I honestly don’t want to sit and read about how men suck and they’ve done everything wrong. I just want to be respectful, and… Read more »

    @vutterfly: What’s the deal with the book by Eckhart Tolle (whoever that is?). I don’t have TV so I am unaware of all these people. I can’t watch the Oprah show because she dumbs down for her viewers. I understand why she does that as much as Dr. Phil does but they should demand more from their viewers, not let the viewers demand less. I have never thought of Rosie O’donnel and her like to be man hating feminists. Are there particular situations that support this label? Just about everyone I knew calls themselves a feminist, are part of feminist… Read more »

    @outofocus: Gender equality is an important and that’s what feminism is about. A true feminist doesn’t just care about women’s rights but about human rights in relation to gender. best way I have ever heard it defined. I can tell you’ve really educated yourself on this issue and have given me a few things to think about. I really like the way you think about this issue. @dieAntagonista: I’ve never really watched Oprah, so I can’t say what I think about her personally or as Talk Show Host. I think anyone that is under the public glare and microscope is… Read more »

    Beautiful. Perfect. Alexis She does Rosie very well. 😀 @outofocus: I also like your definition of feminism. Sadly, however DieA’s experience with “feminists” is similar to mine. Though I do not believe in the Butch-dyke stereotype, I find too many “feminist” arguments are not actually based on equality but rather self empowerment, all else be damned… I also find it telling that the vast majority of the cool not-girls who have shared what I would consider fair views of feminism, also do not claim to be feminists themselves… @nyokki: A while back, when Hilary was competing with Obama for the… Read more »

    @Phyreblade: I haven’t met very many people, period, who understand that concept.

    I’ve always liked Whoopie Goldberg.

    What you say regarding women focusing only on women’s rights makes sense to me. I have seen that but I guess I ignore it as most of the time as the points are generally not invalid but only applicable to a small portion of the problem.

    @outofocus: I don’t really watch TV either, but it seems like everyone around me does. =/ I’m borrowing the Eckhart Tolle book from my mom-in-law… it’s about, like, philosophical/getting rid of your ego type stuff. You should look it up if you like that kind of thing. =P I agree totally with what you are saying about feminists, and that real feminists aren’t man-haters. But, I think the media has most people convinced that feminist=man-hater. For instance I look up “feminist” on youtube. The second result is “Joe Rogan vs Feminist.” The info on the video says “Some feminist bitch… Read more »

    p.s. I just had a talk with my husband… and we decided that as soon as you label yourself a feminist, you’re kind of picking a side. A better term might be socialist.. but even then you are not just advocating equal rights for everyone, you’re also for whatever else socialism entails… Maybe universalism? Still that’s just speciesism. Should animals have equal rights? What about the rights of lifeforms we haven’t even encountered yet?

    @vutterfly: So what you’re saying is that because the word is “feminist” (implying female bias) that it should be changed to something else… never mind the fact the word has a clear meaning as defined in the dictionary. “Atheist” used to be a word that was meant to be derogatory. It was quite offensive and it has slowly become something that defines a group of people. The way I see it, as long as our culture has an underlying hate of women, it doesn’t matter what word we use. It makes more sense to me to use the word appropriately… Read more »

    Feminist is a very generic term that has multiple meanings, usually subjective. Every time you use the term feminist, you’re required to define it. I don’t like chauvinistic assholes and I don’t like feminist bitches.
