If a human rights organization criticizes human trafficking in Thailand but not Ukraine, does that make their opinion irrelevant?The vast majority of feminism is nonsense, though, because I can't remember the last feminist organization or work that mentioned in its agenda increasing rights of men, barring the right to know how privileged they are.
Oh, I don't think it's actually nonsense; I meant that if only the feminism that does that is nonsense, as Lur claimed, then essentially all of it is nonsense.
In fact, the quality this (poor) use of the word "nonsense" implied I dislike I actually favor, which was the point of my original post here on the subject. As difficult as this is to say, I actually like something more about second-wave feminism than third-: it keeps its scope fairly narrow. Women's rights organizations taking on men's issues just seems unclean, saps any dignity men's rights groups already have, and makes the issues seem a lot more trivial.
