"Why are feminists so against equality for men?"
Since feminists already have equal Rights to men in the first world, then an enforced equality would see feminists lose their legal privileges so that men would gain legal equality to women. This sounds strange since feminism fought for equal RIGHTS to men. But the truth is that they never properly obtained equal RESPONSIBILITIES. This is the main problem for men's equality today.
Women would have to be obligated to the Selective Service military obligation like men are. They would also have to drop legal privileges they receive that are denied to men just because they are men such as affirmative action and taxpayer women's only programs and benefits just to name a few.
Note that I am only referencing the legal aspects of equality and not the social aspects of which women are much more favorably treated.
-Now for the tone of this question, I found this most fitting answer by user Yohan: Quote:
Feminists are demanding both, equality when it fits them like equal rights, and special treatment when it is to their disadvantage, like equal obligations.
In my native country in Europe, women retire when 60 years old, men 65 years old, and women do not want to be equals - however retirement allowance is smaller for women than for men, because they worked 5 years less.
Result: Feminist women are complaining about lower retirement allowance compared to those of men, but refuse to work 5 years longer.
A speciality of equality is now going on in UK, feminists demand to close down all prisons for women and to abolish all jail sentences for females, because women are different.
OK, it is getting ridiculous now.
In Sweden, feminists were demanding to remove urinals in an elementary school, because boys should not do what girls cannot.
Feminism is not about equality, it is a hateful movement looking for advantages for some certain groups of women. Of course not for all women, some poor low-paid Filipina or Latina maids doing the laundry, cooking and babysitting are always welcome in a feminist household.
