The feminist movement had a few good points, like equal pay for equal work, shelters for battered women, and so forth. But when it got to ridiculous lenghts like vilifying men for holding the door open for a woman or giving a woman his seat on the bus, etc. that is just crap! Also affirmative action has taken the pride and sense of acomplishment out of many women's efforts to get to the top through hard work, everybody thinks she got there by way of unfair breaks in education and/or hiring whether she really did or not. A lot of women feel they have to act tougher or corser and a lot of men have lost their respect for women and mothers in society.

kemclaughlin, there are no 'real men' any more. Sorry but it's the truth.
I agree with pagan_mamma. There were a lot of good things that came out of the feminist movement, but there were some negative things as well. I think vilifying men for being polite is just stupid. I also would much rather work hard for what I have and be recognized for that hard work, rather than been looked down upon because people think that I got where I was just simply because I'm a woman.
