I never thought I would have to fight to be payed the same amount as a male colleague in this day and age.

You don’t. 

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-gender-pay-gap-is-a-complete-myth/

Not true, I’ve worked in my occupation for 5 years, and have worked my way up from the bottom, now an assistant manager, I constantly do unpaid over time, extra courses and spend alot of my time trying to better myself in my career. When a guy starts working at the same position with no prior experience and gets paid the equivalent of extra 3days work each week. Now tell me that it’s a myth, it still happens!!

This is what you claim, but facts don’t lie.

So if everything you say is true and you are still making less, then it’s because you superior is an asshole. But it is not accurate to say that there is a wage gap between men and women. 

I have a pair of bright neon green/yellow crocs that are a couple sizes too big for me. I use them to go outside to feed my rabbits in their rabbit hutch. One morning, I forgot to switch from my crocs to my school shoes. I didn't realize I was wearing my crocs until second period when I was dressing out for PE. I had to spend the school day wearing fluorescent clown shoes.

I can’t believe no one told you! Oh my gosh, I would have died. 

At least wearing ugly clothes ironically is in style!

What is your favorite thing about feminism?

Send us an ask and we will publish your responses! Make sure it starts with “My favorite thing about feminism is”

MY favorite thing about feminism is all the double standards it sets up for itself.

My second favorite thing is the erasure of male issues.

I also really like the condescending mockery it makes of any woman who thinks for herself and has opinions that differ from feminist ideology.

I really like when they make up fake concepts just so they can have something else to be mad about

I love how it says that women have to be given special treatment to be on the same level as men.

What you are telling her is that in real life there are rules. There is a time and a place for everything.
School is a learning environment, not one where you can walk around half naked because you feel like it. 
The same goes for boys who sag their pants or where tank tops. They have to change as well. The only difference is that those boys have the maturity to realize that it’s their own fault for wearing clothes they know are against the dress code instead of blaming it on the opposite gender. 

These entitled brats should be thankful that they get to wear regular clothes to school.
You know what I have to wear? Khaki pants, a red/black polo shirt, and a black or brown belt. No opened toe shoes and the heel can’t be higher than half an inch. Our jackets have to be red, black, or white, with no writing on them (unless it’s school related). You have a red jacket with the Aeropostale logo on it? Can’t wear it. Not allowed.
Oh, but poor them, they’re sooo oppressed because they’re not allowed to wear shorts that go up their butt crack ): Or shirts that barely cover their nipples ):

Exactly. 
I live in Florida. I understand heat and humidity, and it is possible to find clothes that are both cool and in dress code. I’m super glad I don’t have to wear a uniform, though. That would be too much.

Women's Rights Activist: Now let's tackle the delicate issue of rape. There are too many instances of women being raped and something needs to be done.
Men's Rights Activist: Absolutely - but we feel that it is also important to note and bring light to the fact that males get raped too, and women can also be rapists.
WRA: Absolutely - what do you think Egalitarian?
Egalitarian: I think with careful attention to all victims of rape, and not specifically turning it into a gendered issue, we can focus more precisely on what causes rape and try to counter it. We believe that demonising one group of people isn't the way forward, especially with such sensitive topics like rape.

Feminist: IMAGINE A BOWL OF M&MS

When will y’all learn that feminism isn’t about hating men. It isn’t even about men. Why do men feel like they need to be involved in every subject? Why do men feel so threatened by something that isn’t even about them? It’s not about tearing down men or bossing them around. It’s about women being free and having rights and not being teared down. It literally has NOTHING to do with men. 

A movement that is supposed to be about equal rights for women and men has absolutely NOTHING to do with men.

Makes sense to me. 

Because it is not a movement about equal rights for women and men. It’s about equal rights for woman. Do men need equal rights? Hell no, they already have that. Women don’t. It is a movement for the liberation of women. 

I don’t think you understand what the word equality means.

The only way men could have equal rights is if women had them as well.

If women are not equal to men, as you argue, then neither of them have equal rights.

But that would be assuming that women don’t already have equal rights in the Western world, which they do.
