A safe(r) space for respectful, cooperative feminism-minded discussion, including its intersections. Content is actively curated by a pro-feminist moderation team.

This community is currently restricted as we adjust for the rapidly changing Reddit policies.

I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.

Forum for exposing misogynists?

What if there was a subreddit or forum of some sort whose purpose was to expose the identities of men that post horribly misogynistic comments/content online so that their family/friends/coworkers/etcetera could be alerted to their concerning and potentially dangerous attitudes towards women? There could even be a searchable database. I saw on Drew Afualo's TikTok that she would find out if certain commenters that left unsolicited hate on her page had a girlfriend and then message their girlfriend that they were leaving her unsolicited hate and that sometimes they would break up. A lot of guys literally post the craziest shit online with their literal face and full name. Sidenote, I think it should focus on more obviously wrong content than gray area stuff that could be interpreted as misogynistic. What do you guys think? I think this would be an amazing way to try to keep women safe and maybe even work towards having blatant misogyny be less socially acceptable. Any thoughts or ideas?

End this gender rolesss

I am so sick of society pushing gender roles on people. Other than physical strength and physical mold there is no difference between men and women. I really hope upcoming generation would be free of such biases.

Why can't we teach men to do household chores. Like what's the actual issue or hindrance????. I know many men will now come at me for saying this but please come with facts and genuine things and make me change my mind. No one could change my mind since 12 yr old when my mom used to scold me to do household chores and not my brother who is much older than me. Now I am 23 yr old and I still don't understand this gender roles concept. Doing household chores and cooking should be basic skills not specific to a gender. In this growing economy where woman and man both are working person why is it only woman's job of looking after household? Why can't we teach sons everything which we teach daughters?. Listen dear men please learn how to run a household if you are looking to get married in future cause we woman can't be superwoman like your mom doing everything plus going to office also. I know some men will say "no one told you to work, go back to kitchen". Woman want to work because they want to be financially independent and contribute in the house finance and support her family. Isn't 2 income better than 1? So.... isn't 2 people(husband and wife) doing household chores and cooking better than 1 person(the wife) doing it all???? I know all the arguments which I will get after this post especially from men. I'm really tired of making my family understand thissimple thing so nothing else can tire me.
