You have also said equality is impossible. Thus you can't reasonably say your for it. If the feminism you believe in can't push for equality why are you claiming it does? Or even should when you previously admitted it is a lie.
I didn't say equality was impossible. I said the movement that claims equality is actually not practicing what it claims to preach.
Because Feminism was never about equality. Ever. It's about power. Who has control.
Of course it's about power. Men have more power than women. Feminists want women to have equal power. We want society to be structured in a way that doesn't favor one gender over another. If you think it's about one gender controlling the other, you don't understand what feminism is.
How far do you have to push it? Until men are in chains?
Chains? Where is this coming from? I don't think she means she wants females to rule or control males... at least what I think she is saying is she wants females to have the same amount of importance and ability in society.
The roles and importance too society? What roles to men have that women don't have or are somehow prevented from attaining?
I will note that no law under the books that govern our land prevent us from doing anything we set our heart to do. So what exactly is making us unequal?
It's mostly a social thing, which actually has a pretty big impact. We're expected to conform to our society's expectations and constructs, and when we go against them there's some push back from society.
