    Only a few of these YouTubers had any slight idea what they were talking
    about.

    Right on! The misconception/stereotype that the feminist group is only
    filled with angry, self-entitled women is way too prevalent in society
    nowadays.

    In a psychological/physiological sense, I think the case of “guy = player”
    vs. “girl = badnames” is that in the distant past, men, in a reproductive
    sense, could (and can) “sow their seed” anywhere and everywhere to ensure
    survival of his genes as much as he could. So he was heralded as someone
    who would ensure his genes would be more likely carried on.
    Women needed to be more “choosy” because they have numbered eggs,
    (relatively) small window of peak conception, only get one shot a month,
    sought traits they deemed worthy to carry on in another generation (for
    example choosing the strongest mate, like back in the caveman days,) and
    carrying/having a baby is a huge commitment in both body and time. Women
    who slept around were seen as more reckless in their potential mate choices
    and ignoring times of peak conception; a main goal of the PAST.
    …The long and short of it is NOWADAYS, neither gender needs to ensure
    survival of their race, so the age-old idea of players and badnames
    (assuming we’re not talking about cheating or the like) sorely needs to be
    expunged! :) very interesting question.

    Feminism is gender equality

    They keep saying maybe women are better and women are superior that is not
    what feminism is. Feminism is equality of the sexes. It’s not just women
    who support it and that shouldn’t be implied. It’s not all about women gays
    are a big deal to feminist too. They deserve the rights straight people
    have too like marriage. They are people and feminism says all should be
    equal.

    This video is generally encouraging. Pretty sound opinions and energy.
    However, do the couple really know the objective of the message this video
    is trying to give???

    1. Not taking valentine’s day and anniversaries as a big deal, DOES NOT
    make them feminists. It just means you don’t care enough about it. It is a
    bad point to bring up because does not add any value to the message. Who
    said that valentine’s day was a single sex centred thing? Feminism doesn’t
    mean disregard or negligence. In fact it means celebrating equality, if you
    are really supporting of both sexes, then shouldn’t you be celebrating each
    other as equals for the amount of effort you both put into the relationship
    together?
    2. The video speakers then share their opinions and views and basically
    building up to a great energy sending all the positivity until they
    appeared again at 3:10. At 1:01, lady says it is okay to play each role,
    then at 3:10 she proudly claims that she offers to pay ‘just to be nice’.
    Do you even know how many young impressionable girls are watching this
    video to look for inspiration? The guy then went ahead to say that he does
    “anything to impress her”, and that he won’t even let her know when he only
    has 20 bucks left. WHAT IS SO FEMINIST ABOUT THIS SOMEONE TELL ME.

    The men in this video have better feminist inputs than some of the women.
    IMO

    Feminism is not just for women to receive equality. That a big
    misunderstanding. Feminism is the equality of two gender meaning that both
    gender should not either feel inferior nor superior to each other And yes
    guy are affected too, but girls have it worse than guys. Guys are affected
    by patriarchy, they are raise to act strong, dominant “manly” and be
    superior than a women. If not. They are disrespected. By being called
    weakling sissy and other disrespectful names.

    Considering that my womens school is accepting transgendered men now Id say
    yes lol. Social engineers are promoting it anywhere except Israel though.
    Strange

    Sorry but I got to say this is rather misleading. Feminism is not about
    just women rights, but gender equality! Which goes both ways, men and
    women. It doesn’t mean that women are better than men, but women equal as
    men. As well as men being able to not have certain standards to meet.

    Please please please, when doing videos like those make sure you read the
    definition of the word feminism.
