It's a funny thing, language. The way it changes over time as it mingles with others and conforms to the standards of the culture at the time. For instance, the terms "man" and "woman". One masculine and the other feminine. Except they're not. Not originally anyway. "Woman" has pretty much always meant females since it was first used. However, there was a time when "man" was the neutral term. The masculine variant was "wereman." And yes, "were" as in "werewolf," which translates out as "man wolf." However, somewhere along the line, for whatever reason, the English language dropped the masculine variant and instead the neutral term became synonymous with males. 

This puts a bit of a new spotlight on terms like "mankind," which suddenly don't look so sexist as many feminists and social justice warriors have claimed. The term does not refer to males, but the sex neutral term for people in general, at least how it was originally intended. Another funny thing is the term "womyn," a feminist attempt to distance themselves from those nasty, evil males. However, with this new knowledge, feminists are actually trying to distance themselves from the term for "human" or perhaps "person." It's like at every turn, feminists set themselves up to fail.

Thx for the faves + watch! I have a new one out (almost) every week. Covering lots of stuff mostly centered around gender equality, civil rights, and libertarianism. If you have any ideas or anything you'd like to see just shoot me a msg!

Ooh. Requests. I can't think of anything at the moment, but I imagine if you check out the journals at Facts-not-feminism, you'll find some inspiration.

I got another one. It is virtually impossible to achieve feminist equality in a relationship. The reason being that you can't have a happy relationship and constantly be keeping score. 

Feminist: "Oh. It looks like he served himself a couple more peas than I got at dinner. Something must be done to correct this imbalance. When I serve the cake for desert, I'll make sure my piece is twice as big as his, and I'll make sure he sees me performing my passive-aggressive action without me actually saying what's bugging me."

Actually, I just got something. The gender wage gape is due almost entirely to the different choices men and women make. One of the big choices is that women choose to raise the kids more than raise the money. It seems like the only way to resolve this problem is for some outside force to make women make the politically correct choices.

Hey, I didn't know whether to put this in the facts-not-feminism comments section or not, so I'll just do it here if that's okay:

My internet was down for a week due to technical difficulties with our service provider, and in that week my main source of entertainment was the tv. I love watching House, Bones, The Big Bang Theory, Marvel movies, etc, and, of course, I sit through commercials most of the time.

In the week that I spent watching tv commercials I came to a realization: the more I watched tv, the more commercials I saw depicting women as intelligent by making the men less so. It was rather upsetting to me, so I texted my male feminist friend for an explanation. The first words in his reply were "because patriarchy" and that didn't help at all. In the same reply he went on to say [I'm paraphrasing] that the media probably wants to elevate women because life is crap for them otherwise. When I asked him specifically why they made men look bad, he answered with, basically, 'there are a lot more stupid women in the media than there are men', which still didn't answer my question.

Now, keep in mind that he and I are friends; I simply hoped for a better answer from someone who has proven to be intelligent in other matters. It's frustrating. Do you have an explanation to the question of why men are cut down and women raised up in commercials? And might you have a suggestion as to what would cause a rational person to act as my friend has acted when confronted with such questions as I have given him? I specifically ask you these questions because you seem knowledgeable on such things and I would not take up the space in your comments section if I did not think you could not provide satisfactory answers.

Thank you for your time.
