Referring to Women as Girls

This is hardly a 'feminist' style. As a man, I would find it insulting if someone referred to me as a boy, when I am a 30 year old adult. Its common courtesy to not belittle another adult by referring to them as a child. Lono August 10, 2010

That sounds more like a personal opinion. There are people who don't think that way. Think of the TV show The Golden Girls. Using your argument, it should have been called The Golden Women, but I don't recall the actresses campaigning for it. The same goes for Olympians like Boy Charlton (whose real first name was Andrew). Michael4 04:17, 18 March 2011 (EDT)

Sense of Humor

I find it ironic that this article states that feminists do not have a sense of humor. A lot of my fellow conservatives have no sense of humor whatsoever (which is why the 1/2 hour news hour was a welcome attempt, even if it didn't quite hit the mark). Anyway, this statement is not cited, and sounds like someone's opinion. I would like to remove it, as this is an encyclopedia. The rest of the article was spot on, especially the part about "altering language" to assert their viewpoint (At my college, many female student wanted the "ombudsman" to be called an "ombudsperson", despite the fact that Ombudsman is a Swedish word which has nothing to do with men.)--APeters 13:34, 6 September 2009 (EDT)

Please take a look around, beyond the predictably liberal college culture. Type in "feminists" "no sense of humor" in a Yahoo! search and see nearly 30,000 websites pulled up noting this style.--Andy Schlafly 14:27, 6 September 2009 (EDT)
You make a valid and important point, but I bet we can find better evidence to back it up. This is just an argumentum ad populum, and not something that should be taken as evidence -- after all, "conservatives" "no sense of humor" gets 87,000 hits. Anyone know of commentary on humor in the published works of famous feminists? --MarkGall 08:30, 9 September 2009 (EDT)

Point taken.--APeters 18:51, 7 September 2009 (EDT)

Title

Depsite the fact this article is pathetic (I'm no fan of feminists but really..)I think it Feminist Style sounds awkward. Perhaps 'Characteristics' is a better title. AdenJ 01:46, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Sexual harassment

Please, please, please tell me that the "think sexual harassment is a bad thing" is a vandal strike, or something. Are you telling me there's people out there who believe sexual harassment is a good thing? And that feminists are the only ones who believe it's bad?Raggs 07:12, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Rape

The source for 'regards all men as potential rapists is a link to a blog that no longer exists. Statements, and articles, like this may not help our cause because they seem offensive not only to women but to us. We're better than this. There is no need to mock them or speculate about them. We will not win favor that way. We must stick to highlighting the positives of our own ideas like supporting charity and responsible spending. For the good of our reputation, i think it may be smart to delete this article altogether.flounder19 00:08 {EST}

Plus, a blog is hardly a primary source for such a bold statement. Lono
This is now fixed; the reference has been updated to a book with a verifiable link. Michael4 04:17, 18 March 2011 (EDT)
