Yes, you keep saying this, but I still have no idea what you mean.
Exactly WHAT is about about "modern" feminism that is different from "classic" feminism?
And please do not give unsupported generalizations about how today's feminists hate men and think they are better then men.
Give me authors and specifics, because I would really like to check out this pernicious strain of "feminism."
The problem is, I don't think it actually exists.
I think conservative anti-feminists SAY it exists. I think they talk about these alleged "neo"-feminists, and they take quotes out of context and raise a lot of alarms.. and I think that is backlash and continued oppression.
Sure there are some radical feminists exploring gender politics.
There always have been. Some of them are "classics."
And they have some interesting things to say.
But the feminist movement in general is concerned with the same things it has always been concerned with.
There is no neo-feminist cabal. There is no man-hating, women are superior, cut-their-balls-off cabal.
So please, link me to these "modern" feminists who are so objectionable.
Tell me what practices and ideals they are espousing that go beyond equality of the sexes.
