First topic message reminder :

Logged on to 606 fully expecting to see all manner of debate about these ahem somewhat provocative comments (albeit since retracted, it would seem).

But - unless I've completely missed it (?) - can't see a thread, or indeed any mention so far :

Define yourself as a masculinist if you feel it necessary. I'm sure you know why that's never really been a thing. I do think that anyone who is a feminist should be concerned as to why some men in our society are increasingly isolated, lonely, have inadequate housing etc. I'd class these as men's issues rather than specifically men lacking in rights.

The digression was the religious stuff - on equal prize money, I'm not that far from your view, except without the anti-feminist sentiment.

That is how I view my own thoughts on feminism that it is about fairness and equality. That is why I don't subscribe to the view that this prize money equality is about women's rights or feminism, it is a cynical money grab, an unfair one being dressed up in feminism to whip up the media who can't wait to run stories about misogynist, high earning males keeping those poor WTA women down. At the end of the day, before I am feminist, a liberal, or any other label I want to be known as fair and rational. Which this equal prize money argument fails on both fronts.
