The Word "Feminism" Suggests You're Only Interested in Women

Dear Dr. Betty,

The concept of women always having their own way is not equality. Women have breasts and vaginas. Men have penises.

This fundamental inequality can not be balanced but in all other contexts, for women to have equality to men, men must have the same equality to women.

Women can "do things for themselves" but to overcome the imbalances, women and men should try to understand the world from each others and their own point of view.

I can't see how you can ever solve the differences that women experience without doing exactly the same for men. As a radical thinker, I'm surprised and disappointed at what seems to be your one sided outlook.

The word feminism, in itself, suggests: we're only interested in women! While this is the case, the problem of inequality will only be exacerbated.

Dear R, For clarity I looked up the word "emasculism" and the urban dictionary said it's "a kind of feminism that mostly focuses on diminishing men--in contrast to elevating women--as a way to attain equality amongst the sexes."

Only recently I've been saying "Women are the First Sex. We have more genetic material, our brains work better, we are more verbal, in touch with our emotions and with a sexual capacity for pleasure that allows us to enjoy endless orgasms. Women also give birth fulfilling Mother Nature's plan to further the human race." True statements meant to bolster women's self-esteem.

When I thought about how men "took over" I agree with Leonard Schlain who wrote "The Alphabet Versus the Goddess." He was into left and right brain hemispheres as a physicist/physician. Once we left pictures and embraced the alphabet, the printing press reproduced endless Bibles spreading the gospel that was negative PR for women. We were told the man of the house had the final say in all things and Patriarchal rule continues to this day.

There are a few cracks appearing that allow women to become a small part of the political decision making process. However, we are a long way off from equal representation. Finally the USA will have our first woman president hopefully this year in 2016.

So in spreading my feminist gospel of equality for women, it's only natural for me to emphasize women's strengths. I'm using PR to bolster women's self-esteem. Since men have had the advantage of 2000 years of religious doctrines that state men's superiority over "the weaker sex" I happily point out women's strengths. My approach to sexual liberation has always included men, the other half of the human equation.

"Women have breasts and vaginas. Men have penises...This fundamental inequality can not be balanced"

Being different from your neighbour, does not make you unequal. Being a different colour, or a different height, does not make you unequal. It just makes you different. 

Maybe if we started by removing the entirely artifical, man-made differences in the way we treat people, the way we educate, socialise, reward and punish people, then we'd be left amazed by how similar we all are too each other. After all, we're all just trying to get through life the best way possible.

It doesn't take radical thought, just common sense to realise that paying people fairly for the work they do, however their genitals are arranged, is probably the right thing to do. We can be different and equal.  

Sorry Girls/women but us MEN

It has been a very long time since I have visited this web site. I was very disapointed in the reply from Dr. Betty. Women have been complaining for so long to anyone who would listen that they have gotten everything they have asked for and yet they are still so unhappy.
I worked in a department with about 100 people, 95% were women. My boss was a woman. She once said to me that if it was up to her, she would get rid of all the women and only have men working in the department. My boss said "The women only work half as much as the men and all they do is complain.  They are either on Facebook or on their cell phones."
These are not my words but what she said was true. The women hated each other as much as they hated the boss.I am now retired and am thankful every day that I do not have to listen to the daily dose of hatred.
On the same note, I have seen many men not worth their salt. They were haters, gossips, lazy or complainers. I am happy to be free of them as well.
Men and women will never be equal except for death.
With your women are better because...well...you just flame the fire.
