That's funny Osso. If I am repetitive responding to you, that means you are repetitive too. If you stop responding, I will too. You don't get to shut down opinions just because you don't agree with them.
This topic interests me, and I have the right to respectfully express my opinions on the topic as I feel is appropriate. If you know longer want to be a part of this discussion... then just stop. Don't be upset with me if you choose to be a part of a discussion that no longer interests you.
Now let me explain the flaws I see in your argument (which you can choose to respond to or not. But if you choose to continue the discussion, don't blame me that it continues).
1) Most women don't consider themselves to be feminist, and some women object directly to what they understand of modern feminism. If you look at prominent feminist writers and blogs you will see a view of "feminism" (as they define it) that many men and women find objectionable.
2) I don't have any problem with anyone calling themselves a feminist. I respect that. This doesn't have any impact on whether I agree or disagree with them on any given topic. It is merely their own choice on how they care to view themselves.
3) I do have a problem with people using feminism to judge other people.
When Glitterbag said "Being a feminist means you get to make your own decisions regarding how you live your life." I objected because to me it implies that people who aren't feminists don't get to make their own decisions. I suppose that maybe this wasn't Glitterbag's intent, and if she corrects me, I will apologize.
4) I do feel that the word "feminist" as used in the 21st century is not helpful. We have words for things that are important; equality, fairness, justice, family... decent people can disagree about these things on one issue and agree on another. If you look at feminist blogs and writings, you don't see respect and understanding of other viewpoints.
5) I do not like personal attacks. When you suggested that I was "on the rag", in my opinion you crossed a line not only of taste, but also of using personal attack to shut down an opinion you don't think should even be expressed.
I have no issue with this or any other biological process, but when you used that term. I believe that you meant to imply that I was cranky and illogical because I was menstruating.
This seems inappropriate to me on a couple of levels. Could you explain to me what you meant by saying I was "on the rag"?
