First wave feminism: We want to vote like men. Second wave feminism: We want to have sex like men. Third wave feminism: We want you to stop being men.

It's hard to believe she can speak on feminism when it destroyed the world.

Here you have Naomi Wolf, a feminist, boldly and happily admitting that she completely made something up and then invented a lot of nonsense to describe this thing she made up to along with it as well... So, why should we believe anything Naomi Wolf says? Oh but wait, facts and credibility mean nothing to feminists, so, it's all good then... I could invent something as well, then write a book about it, but I'd call it science fiction, or a fantasy adventure...

She lost me when she said third wave feminism is much less dogmatic. A lot has changed since 2008...

First of 🙂🙄all trolls I don't understand this but third wave feminism has nothing to do with men being inferior to women and has nothing to do with the basics of gender in the first place but without it. It has to do with the LGBTQ community and their personal rights and how feminism as well as men who are feminist can HELP THEM. Do you understand now because if you don't I think you're a big idiot regardless of your gender😯😒

So many hateful and ignorant comments: the true proof of the presence of intellectual laziness is to attack the person speaking the idea instead of taking on the idea itself.

Hit and run is their preferred method of debate. One way dismissing, avoid the main arguments and run. Confirmational bias and absolute censorship all the way. Feminism is a post modernist construct. What's important about that? Post modernist theory takes truth, knowledge and morality to be basically meaningless but useful. They also see nature (human nature) as malleable. What this means is that they can twist truth, knowledge and morality any way they want to suit their cause.  What is their cause? To deconstruct the oppressor/oppressed binary of their own binary oppositional definition and interpretation.  It means. they can do as they please to bring men down, and be as selective as they wish as to which women's rights they promote.  As long as it deconstructs the binary opposition as they see it, there are no rules.  Because it is deconstructionalist, the objective reality of the outcome is meaningless.

Think big, second wave feminism is about gender equality. Third wave feminism is about gender domination ie. the removal of men
