The problem with groups like this is that they once had a great purpose, they raked in money and votes and supporters for years and accomplished their goals. The laws apply the same between genders in the case of femist. But then what happens to all the money, voting power and supporters? All the people that run it that now make a living off that organizations salary? Groups like this that hit their mark don't give it all up. They find excuses to keep going, often through inciting anger over a non issue. They never fold up. They keep making guilt, anger and hold on to their organization and power. They become completely corrupt after their goal is met, while still waving their creeds from the good ole days to hide behind as a shield.
@Dephenistrator, tldr: feminists bad, guns good
@Dephenistrator, exactly, just like the NRA
@Metal head Toph, nah, they save lives
@Metal head Toph, not really. The NRA doesn’t make political contributions like feminist organizations. In addition, they promote keeping rights (more like one right), not stepping on other people’s (men’s) rights just to get a hand up.
@MrLampoon, I was mostly making a joke to ruffle feathers and point out how every side of a political argument makes arguments against themselves without realizing it.I'm not trying to get in a big discussion. But the NRA definitely makes political contributions. https://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/totals.php?id=d000000082&cycle=2016
They spend a lot of money supporting candidates
@Dephenistrator, feminists isn’t a single group but people who believe that there should be equality but there are many different groups that fight for this, like all social rights movements there are groups that are corrupt and manipulate their purpose and profit from it but again this goes for every social movement but saying feminists are all corrupt like you have is pretty misleading.
@Megahut, I'm not being misleading, rights groups (not the ideology of equal rights) don't have a purpose after they get equal rights or whatever the issue is, and become corrupt by continuing on anyway when they should pack it up and celebrate
@Megahut, actually i never mentioned the idea of equal rights being corrupt. Just the organizations so your the one being misleading
@Dephenistrator, Same thing with labor unions. They once stood for the workers and ge2tring them fair and equal wages, breaks ECT. Then became corrupt and now it's all about how fast they can spread and infiltrate businesses to collect their dues.
They now just breed apathy and poor work ethic as they protect the worst of their members to the bone.
@fettman1138, i couldn't agree more. My first job was Teamsters union (a really big name) working for UPS, and almost everyone there had back problems obviously from the truck loading/unloading. So Teamsters benefits of course strictly exclude all chiropractic treatment in that chapter. I asked a representative why once, and they said because there would be too many people using the benefit. I asked, doesn't that make it the most important one? And she turned from me and walked away to greet others
@Dephenistrator, Yeah we deal with SEIU and teamsters in my area. Selfish money grubbing and violent when they don't get their way.
@fettman1138, at a union meeting a supervisor was angry at my union, and at questions he asked why he couldn't get better hours for a pregnant employee under him that he couldn't help because of restrictions. But this was the best part, he asked them what they were doing to help us since they cost so much and he read aloud each of the panel members salaries and most were hundreds of thousands a year. The highest was a third of a million a year
@Dephenistrator, sounds about right.
@Dephenistrator, you stated like the meme feminists like it is a single organization but it isn’t a single organization, that is why I said what I did. I think when I said misleading I wasn’t wanting to use that word but I didn’t mean it in a way like you were lying.
@Megahut, how about we agree we both misinterpreted?
@Metal head Toph, the NRA is still needed, thanks to whiny uneducated libtards.
@Dephenistrator, sounds good
@Metal head Toph, I agree both sides do crap like that haha
However when you say the NRA spends a lot of money, I’m not sure if you’re speaking relative to their ‘income’ or if you mean overall it’s a lot of money.
If you’re saying income, I’ll give you that. However, if you’re saying in the grand scheme of things, this link (https://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/summary.php?cycle=2016&type=P&id=D000000082) shows less than a million went to candidates. That’s a reallllly small amount compared to other organizations.
Unions, for example, have spent Billions.
Not trying to start anything either, just having a friendly discussion!
"And other hilarious jokes you can tell yourself."
@ThatsHoRaven, does that make it a double negative?
@add eggs then stir, *confused math lady meme*
I think they do accomplish stuff mainly by nagging so you give in so they stfu
They in some way caused this meme to happen so... thats something.
Eh can I be honest for a sec? I'm kinda sick of the feminist memes. I mean pretty much all of the jokes you can make about feminism have been made and there's been nothing really new on the feminist side of things to meme. Just my opinion
Special interest groups like feminism are nothing but supremacy movements. Atleast once a nation insures equality under the law.
Nothing to accomplish. I want a list of rights that women don't have and men do in the US.
Isn't this the exact same type of meme as ...and other hilarious jokes you can tell yourself?
