Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Feminism -- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feminism is a range of social movements, political movements, and ideologies that aim to define, establish, and achieve the political, economic, personal, and social equality of the sexes.
But it is increasingly apparent that feminism cannot be trusted with the equality of the sexes. Women issues may have been historically ignored or misunderstood (arguably), but the solipsism and selective empathy of modern feminism regarding male existential issues is nearly complete. Whatever attention or education is given to male living, it only looks logically appropriate, without noticing the empirically deceptive influence on men's lives -- hence the Red Pill metaphor in those other circles. Does feminism reward its male allies well? With so much blanket indignation toward (particularly) white males, how much incentive is there not to be "deplorable"?

The other problem with feminism (as with other Social Justice movements) is that it will not know its limits. First, it promises the sky, then the Moon, then it goes for the planets and the Sun, and then beyond the Solar system... As a way of example:

Now Charles Darwin gets cancelled: Natural History museum will review 'offensive' exhibitions about the Father of Evolution because HMS Beagle's Galapagos voyage was 'colonialist'

That is pretty offensive to my scientific and historical sensibilities :]

Similarly, there are movements to quote women equally in Wikipedia and scientific articles, regardless of the historical input. Respect for merit and hard work is so passé? If feminism will not command its own advance, some masculine interventions will.
