Radical Feminists – WTF?

So I just started this blog today after trying to have an adult arguement on someone else’s blog.  She had some ideas that I completely disagree with, and she seemed to be getting her “facts” from the magic pixie wikki fairies that must live at the bottom of her garden.  Now as I understand it, feminism is about equality and my understanding on equality is that is must apply to everyone for it to be equality, otherwise some are more equal than others,  what radical feminism is, is a mystery to me, unless it’s feminists who ride skateboards and say “radical” when they do a wicked trick.  If someone would like to explain it to me in the simplest of words so even I can understand, then I’d really appreciate that, but please do it  using words you might pressume I know, phrase it as though you’re talking to a 5 year old, and we might all understand.

    simple, feminism is NOT about equality. feminism, especially radical feminism, is about ending the oppression of females by males. this opression is based on males having control of the reproductive capacity of females through institutions such as marriage and religion, compulsory heterosexuality and the medical establishment.

    in the past, one of the strategies used by females to end their oppression was to push for equal human rights. but that was one strategy, not the underlying premise.

    hope that helps 🙂
