"Critics claim that the movie is anti-feminist"

That's because feminism is stupid.

Notice, Deseret News, how I'm not attacking any single person. I'm just using my First Amendment rights to exercise my opinion about a belief system that I believe is doing more harm to our society than good at this point.

So if using my Constitutional rights as an American citizen is a crime, I guess you can decide, based on that, whether or not it is fair to post my comment.

The Constitutional rights protect you from gov't infringing on free speech. Deseret News moderators are not the gov't and can censor whatever they want.

"That's because feminism is stupid."

Supporting equality between the sexes is stupid?

Re: Schnee

Feminism now, at least from what I see, isn't so much about equality so much as it is about superiority. I'm all for equality, and I think that oppression of women is wrong. But most of the things I see posted from feminists suggest that they are after more than equality. I'm not claiming to know everything about who has what type of rights but women, at least in our country, have all the same rights men do. I don't understand what rights they are fighting for that they don't now already have. Maybe I'm wrong, though. I'm very pro women maximizing their potential, but I can't say that I love feminism if it represents the way that I've described it.

Isn't it bizarre that women who choose to be stay-at-home-moms would be labeled "anti-feminist", or at least against the feminism movement? In other words, they are against equality for women. Hmmmm
Why wouldn't feminism be a movement to support women's roles, whatever they may be?
Also, why do some groups use the word "equal" to really mean "favored"?
