As well it shouldn't. "Equality between the sexes" is simple nonsense.

Feminism hides behind the lie that it's after equality, but it actually promotes "women's interests" -- as they see them, anyway. I think they have women's interests entirely wrong.

Hmm. Maybe the fires of ignorance is the only thing keeps a man-deprived feminist warm. Taking a warm water-bottle to bed would have been more eco-friendly, but her vibrator would probably get jealous.

She's got to earn her feminist "street cred" somehow and the "abortion-on-film-thing" has already been done, but she should probably reconsider the message she is sending about what a feminist is, because history tells us that people start by burning books before they start burning people. If she wants to look like a femi-nazi that's fine, but it only serves to reinforce what we've been saying all along.

From this male's perspective the act seems rather adolescent and I think we'd be hard pressed to find any male rights activist that will be outraged by it. We aren't pansy liberals who get our panties in a bunch over a online video or set of photographs like left-wingers do. She'll probably be disappointed to learn that what she does doesn't affect our psyches in the least. It's her book she can do whatever she wants with it.

Most people know that the Nazis burned books, but most people don't know that Muslims and the Catholic church did also. All tyrannical systems burn books or, in our modern equivalent, destroy hard-drives with emails on them. We male rights activists are well read and we know what a memory hole is.

I think that if she tried reading books instead of burning them (yes that was an Indiana Jones reference) she'd know from history that it's actually rather counter-productive to purchase a book just to burn it. Tyndale used the money the Catholic church paid him to obtain his Bibles so that they could burn them to finish his translation work and print an improved edition.

If the child wants to transfer her wealth to the author and publisher and increase her carbon footprint at the same time she can do this all day for all I care, but her water-bottle is going to get cold in the mean time.

No need for quotes around the word feminism. Sexual fascism is what modern feminism has become.

Feminism has nothing to do with seeking equality between the sexes, no matter what they claim. Being entitled means Feminists feel free to target men in ways they would scream about if men did it to them.

Which shows why feminists should not be called liberals.

More broadly, today's "liberals" should not be called such because they are in every respect anti-liberal. Theirs is the philosophy of state omnipotence, stateolotry, or simply statism.

I hear the word "progressive" used a lot these days. I guess that new label is appropriate if we consider the goal to be a 3rd world matriarchy.
