room 101: equalitygemcloben Welcome to room 101! Today, I shall be discussing equality! We should all be equal, and have equal rights. Or should we? Here, on the most opinionated blog post series on thetoptens! I know I made one of these on authority, and I may be contradicting myself a little, but maybe I just hate too much things. So, anyway, I shall proceed to explain all my reasons! Enjoy the post!
A world where everyone is equal, no lower class, no working class, no middle class, everyone is treated the same, no matter how much one contributes, he/she shall still be equal to a man/woman on the dole. And I am stating both genders, because saying one would mean that I am saying that one is superior, but they are both equal. This kind of world would be the kind of world I would refuse to live in. Here is why:
Communism. Communist countries believe in equality. In theory, this sounds like a brilliant idea, how could it possibly fail? If you think about it, society needs someone above. We need the higher class, a business can't have an employee without having someone higher, owning the company. So, when we think of it more, it is a terrible idea; this is just the start of why equality I awful.
Although equality is necessary (up to an extent) when you really think, we could have a murderer. This murderer will have taken the life of another human being, therefore, he is contributing NEGATIVELY to society. Now, someone who owns a business, let's say a supermarket. He is providing food to other people, and since this is important, this man is contributing POSITIVELY to society. Now, with the idea of equality, both of these people, despite their contributions, both negative and positive, will be treated equally. The murderer will also b given a 2nd chance at life.
Now, we have race equality and racism. UKIP (United Kingdom independence party) are a political party. For those of you who don't know who they are, they are lead by a man called Nigel Farage. They believe that Britain should leave the EU (European union) so we have more control over out immigrants. UKIP as got a lot of controversy and been accused of racism. The media has twisted their words, and people say the want all immigrants out. Not true. They just don't the ones who take advantage of our benefits, without paying taxes, therefore not contributing, the ones who come to take advantage of our NHS (national health system), basically those to take advantage of anything. But, how does this mean he is racist or saying those from a different country are not equal? He isn't. He just doesn't want SOME of them to take money. If you want to see a real racist party, check out the British national party (BNP)...
And now, are men and women equal? Feminism is the idea of men and women's equality, but why is it called FEMINISM is it for men as well? It isn't. Those who are feminist are now seeking to be above men, and to be the superior gender. A woman can say whatever she wants about a man, but a man says a woman is hot, he is a pervert! A woman slaps a man, it is seen as an inspirational action, if a man slaps a woman, he is thrown in jail. This is their idea off equality.
So, with communism, equality taken to far, race equality leading to people being called racist and just equality in general, how can we call this a good idea? Or the path to a perfect world? So, as always, write whether you agree or disagree with this blog post, and give reasons! Thank you for reading room 101!
I agree with this post. Yes, a lot of feminists are trying to be superior. I personally think we are equal gender, and inequality is one of the many problems with America. - visitor
Feminism is a range of movements and ideologies that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve equal political, economic, cultural, personal, and social rights for women.  This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment. A feminist advocates or supports the rights and equality of women.
What you're describing is not feminism. We've become so goshdang unappreciative of feminism lately. Without it, I wouldn't be able to vote, be respected, heck, even go to school. It's not bad and even though I'm not really one myself, it bothers me that people don't really know what feminism is. - keycha1n
Feminism gets a bad rap because some of its followers are unnecessarily militant and have their own double standard--for instance, women's requirements to enter the US Marines are less difficult than those for men. They also tend to enforce men's "eat sleep sex" stereotype unduly.
However, TRUE feminism has done a lot for society, and I believe it will continue to do so. - PetSounds
Additionally, one does not have to be female, or look down on either gender as a whole to qualify as a feminist. Neither of those apply to me, and because I believe men and women should have equal rights, pay and social stance, I count as one. - PositronWildhawk
Still keycha1n, not all, but a lot of women want to be superior... Come to my catholic grammar school, no men are teachers(we have a priest, but that's it) so the teachers are always telling the boys the girls are much better than us. - visitor
Feminism used to be good. Now it's terrible. - visitor

Sorry to say this but I am an anti-feminist.
Feminism only encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children and think they are superior to men.
Feminism is also the reason why all the nice guys like myself get ignored and all the jerk men get all the attention. That's right women only love the guy for what they have and not who they actually are. For example, the women wants a good guy. When it's a nice guy, they are usually just a friend. They fall for the bad boy and get their heart broken.
Typical Western women: "No this guy is too nice to date, I want a guy with loads of muscles, six-pack, two cars, loads of money, big house, the latest gadgets and lots of jewellery". Yes the women only loves the guy for what they have and not who they actually are. There are loads of nice guys like myself out there who are getting ignored.
Feminism and equal rights are two different things.
Feminism only encourages women to think they are superior to men. Equal rights is where men and women both have the same rights.
If a man is not allowed to hit a woman, a woman is not allowed to hit a man either.
Men and women have the same rights.
To all the nice guys, don't feel too bad, this is just a typical Western women. There are foreign dating websites where you can date foreign women from foreign countries in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin countries in South America. When you take a look at foreign women, all you see is smiles while Western women have bratty faces. Foreign women are completely different to Western women. Foreign women are sweet, feminine, friendly, caring, charming and know how to treat a man. Western women are spoilt, bratty, mean, rude, dumb and don't know how to treat a man.
Feminism has destroyed a lot of relationships in Western countries. It is no wonder that the divorce rate in the Western countries is 70% while in the foreign countries it is only 10% because they don't have feminism.
Still single? Blame feminism. Feminism is evil. - visitor
