So was Betty Friedan not a feminist in your definition? https://now.org/about/history/statement-of-purpose/… "bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all the privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men."
So, you’ve reduced “all MRAs are NAZIs” to “a bunch of MRAs are NAZIs.”
That could be true.
Certainly not “all.”
How big a bunch? What’s your definition of MRAs? Do you acknowkedge that many MRAs may be advocating for equal rights as per Betty Friedan’s SECOND STAGE?
You're the "National Organization For Women". Do you know the definition of woman? Is it a man with a feeling? A man with a fetish? A man who likes makeup? A person with a penis? Do you think Betty Friedan thought men can turn into women? Did Friedan want NOW to be male centered?
I have read much on the topic Kristi - and the definition of “feminism” -even in the cited examples I used as “feminists” in our debate -are HIGHLY variable. When Simone DeBouvere and Betty Friedan can’t agree on what “equality” entails, how can a pollster or a poll taker?
Because according to Betty Friedan MOST people are feminists by her definition. Women deserve 2 things: equal pay for equal work and dominion over their bodies....and this man DISAGREES with those rights? ugly inside and out.
Betty Friedan told me that everybody is a feminist! Those who embrace her simple definition of that word; if you believe women deserve equal pay for equal work and deserve dominion over their body...YOU are a feminist!
“The insult, the real reflection on our culture's definition of the role of women, is that as a nation we only noticed something was wrong with women when we saw its effects on their sons.”
― Betty Friedan, The Feminine Mystique
