One of the many reasons I started referring to myself as an egalitarian instead of a feminist. I don't think that just men should have to sign up for selective service here in the US when they turn 18. Why should we get special treatment and get a pass on that? If we want equality then we've got to take the bad with the good.

It's nice to see girls starting to distance themselves from feminism. One of the things I don't like about feminists is their arrogance in assuming they speak for all women, and unfortunately this assumption has largely gone unchallenged until recently. As the preference of women shifts towards egalitarianism, the only people who still call themselves feminists are going to be the extremists, who will only further alienate women from their ideology. At times like this I think we might be seeing the beginning of the end for feminism.
