Practicing Feminism for Father's Day

Practicing Feminism for Father's Day | J3R3MY | Scoop.it
Join us in making a commitment to take at least one action against patriarchy and misogyny in real life.
Jeremy Pollard's insight:

I am so against patriarchy & misogyny. 

 

And do I practice many of these 50x great suggestions to help me be me less patriarchal & mysogynistic. And now with this list I have a few more great ideas and practices.(constant change for the better, right?)

 

But I am still unsure of a definition of feminism as just being against dumb, cruel selfish stuff many males do. Although I see much about empowerment for and by women as a positive goal by many.

 

What I'm more comfortable with is Humanism - being the best person you can (irrespective of gender) - and while that must include not being patriarchal or a mysogynist, it should also include generally (for all genders) being an all round good person. Which for me is not being a feminist. e.g. It's not the exclusive domain of females.

 

Humanism is being FOR something good, positive (and against the opposite, irrespective of gender) across all areas of human values and behaviour.

 

I struggle with feminism feeling anti 'bad' male. e.g. particularly the aspects that detract from, dimish or demean women. But being a 'bad' male also hurts and harms other men - and men behaving badly also have a terrible impact on children (irrespective of gender).

 

And what do you call unpleasant, demeaning, cruel, unfair, selfish behaviour by women, that hurts males, and children? Victims? Is everything the fault of men? Where in feminism as a women would I own what areas of my life?

 

So I agree and support specific, focussed awareness and action on the aspects of behaviour by males (and society, including females)  that negatively impacts females - I also support an even higher order goal of all humans being and acting more nobly to themselves, and all other humans.

 

I will play my part in being a good, sub-topic feminist - and as well, a lives' work in attempting also to be a good Humanist.

Without the right tools, easy jobs can get complicated. A stuck bolt gets stripped, or a carefully balanced bike falls off a makeshift stand. On the other hand, working on a motorcycle with the right tools—like these—can be a pleasure.
