There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

These myths just can't be debunked enough.

The reason I know modern feminism is a joke is my facebook feed for the last two days has been outcries against the celebrity nude photo leaks (boohoo woe is me, I was stupid and uploaded naked pictures of myself to an unsecure network) and literally no one has posted anything about the incidents in Rotherham.

Sometimes I'd like to kick some of these ladies out and have them live in a place like Iraq, Syria, India for 6 months and see how much they decide to whine about "issues" in the US when they get back.

Modern feminists don't care about women's issues, they care about themselves.

Feminism from its very beginning have as its seeds the roots of modern feminism. The very foundation is flawed and hence the chickens have come home to roost.

It's not an unbiased source. The author works for a private, conservative think tank. Her ideas may still be relevant, and are interesting to read and consider, but it's incorrect to say that she is a very unbiased source.

I'm just so pleased that somewhere like Time magazine has brought these kind of truths to light (from a woman, too!). I hope to see more feminist myths be debunked on other mainstream mediums.

Ideology is immortal unless challenged.
