Evening Mobilization

I pretty much agree with you, Eirikrautha - but I'm a bleeding heart liberal. How is this possible? Could it be that throwing labels around is just clouding the issue by seeing people as members of groups that don't truly exist?

I'd actually go further than you, in that (as a bleeding heart type) I believe in equality. What you call radical feminism is bordering man-hating and this is simply sexism. It's sexist for a man to be prejudiced against women and it's sexist for a woman to be prejudiced against men. Seeing yourself as a victim of men's sexism, as sexist women sometimes do, is somewhat understandable, but it's not justification at all.

Likewise, equality in wanting to look good. It's not that the average woman wants to be considered attractive, it's that nearly everyone, male or female, wants to be attractive because ultimately, we all want to reproduce and to reproduce with the most desirable mate we can. The simplest way to attract a highly desirable mate is to be highly desirable. This is massively, massively generalising, but what makes a female desirable is signs of fertility and what makes men desirable is signs that they can raise a family.

So much of human behaviour comes down to this (or rather, the infinitely more complex reality of this) and it makes sense in the evolutionary sense of propagating one's genes.
