…Emma Watson Delivers Stirring Speech at U.N…



I can get behind a lot of what Emma is saying, here…but it is also necessary, to understand that there is a lot of history to get beyond…and considerable house cleaning, that needs to take place.

Feminism should not be synonymous with man hating…

…The problem as I have seen it for many years, now…is that various, extreme male haters, have been using feminism [the movement, itself] as their vehicle.

What a lot of us see getting shoved down our throats as “feminism”, in reality, is the ugly consequences of loud, burdensome people…who have consistently failed to grasp the concepts, and importance of, true equality…of mutual respect…and, frankly, of humanist values.

What many of us are left so revolted by in the feminism of today…is that too much of it behaves like an abusive threat towards us…in tangible ways.

Personally…I think it is high time to put away all “equality” movements, that even care to ask at all, what gender anyone is.

I have never been a feminist…and I never will be…

That is not to say, I do not share some core principle values, with many feminists…But I am a humanist…meaning, that I am not concerned with what sex you are, nor how you identify yourself…

…I am more concerned with true equality in access, and true equality in need resolution, no matter who we are talking about.

…So let women make the same income as men…of course…

…But we should never be seduced into believing, that many people in the feminist movement are “pure as snow”…

For as long as any movement is around, favoring and taking it’s namesake from one sex…there must be other movements, to counterbalance it.

I just wish we would stop being obsessed, with dragging our cultures all over insanity with “feminism” and “men’s rights”…and start focusing on what is most important…making certain that everybody has what they need, in order to live a meaningful, good life.

…I don’t see feminism as being a magical answer to anything, anymore than I see men’s rights solving all problems…If anything, they are just vehicles for new social monsters to come into power…

On top of this…I am mighty tired and wary, of the self selected amongst us…who seem to believe that they are going to dictate the place of the rest of us, and that they are going to hand down to us something…some social status, which they expect us to be thankful for, but which all too often alienates us…often for which, we have had no voice or choice…

…People fall through the cracks in these movements, all the time…New outcasts are created…demonized…

…No thank you!…I don’t want that, anymore!

I think, we need an entirely different social model…a new social paradigm.
