Feminism purports to concern itself only with equality - but in reality propagates mistrust, tension and hatred between the sexes.

Let’s take the movie “Alexandra’s Project”, and look at the related wikipedia page.
Now let’s look at the same page with the genders reversed.
What do you think?

I don’t really understand what your point is here. What are you asking? Do we think the film’s sexist? Or do we think the film has been falsely reviled as sexist?

No, you completely miss the point.
Read the post title. The author has created a simple test for “sexism”, based on the time honored method of reversing the sexes in order to reveal the presence of a double standard.
This particular movie only served as an example. Other examples might have been used.

I don’t think I do completely miss the point but thanks for your helpful pointers.
I understand that to prove or disprove sexism it is sometimes helpful to switch the genders in the scenario and see if it still presents itself as problematic. I am familiar with that idea. But in order for it to be a useful example, surely the scenario used has to be either a sexist one or one which we think has been falsely accused of sexism. Otherwise the role reversal won’t prove anything. And surely the point of a test is to prove something.
So, I was asking which way round it was supposed to be with this film. Because I couldn’t tell.

Sexism is a common value has a lot of us I think … Everyone sees sexism next to him if a person does not respect a man or a woman according to our own value, right?

The ‘regendered’ plotline from this movie:-
“It depicts a family where the protagonist, Stephanie, comes to find the life that she has been living is a lie. After years of what she believed to be marital bliss, her husband Alexander confronts her with his dissatisfaction in a most unexpected and emotionally wrenching way. On her birthday, Alexander (called ‘Alex’ by Stephanie, much to his chagrin) reveals, among other things, that he has felt objectified and emotionally ignored by her for the entirety of their marriage, and that he is leaving with their children with money he has secretly been earning from sex in their home.”
Do you think that this movie would be popular? Would it be believeable, or acceptable as entertainment?

What the hell does objectified mean anyway? If she is bored that is her own fault. If she is not happy she should of moved out ages ago, and stopped living off him.

Racial equality purports to concern itself only with equal treatment of people of color – but in reality propagates mistrust, tension and hatred between the races.

I wonder why you said ‘racial equality’ rather than ‘blackism’, ‘whiteism’ or any variation of these?
I think it’s because your analogy wouldn’t work. The vary fact that ‘FEM’inism is called so, reveals the true agenda. EF

Nice rebuttal, Feminism is based on the lie that it is about equality! Feminists have always known this but have hoodwinked the rest of the population, but the lie doesn’t work as well as it used to. What do you have to say about this poetess? What lie will you create to try and distract? OR will you do what feminists always do? Simply not answer when you are busted?

Put it this way:
When the woman does the striptease and sleeps with the neighbor etc.. feminists would be totally ok,be ause she’s taking back her life.When the man does the same thing he’s despicable,especially having slept with the neighbor and taking away the kids.The feminists would be outraged at his evil.

Isn’t bad behaviour simply bad behaviour by social or cultural standards of the day – not who does it?
