You say this, but then you complain about my "superficial comparisons"...Ghost13 wrote:Yes, feminism is an ideology. This may come as a surprise to you but I am quite aware of that. I don´t believe in grand narratives. Every ideology is flawed in some way. Which is why you get people like Anita.You have this thing about not being able to see religious ideology and political ideology as both being ideologies.
Well, there's this:Ghost13 wrote:When did I say that? I have no problem with new men´s magazines/shows etc being produced. Otherwise men would be in the same position women are now in fast."There are already enough men's magazines/movies/shows/etc. You don't need another. Rejected."
The logical extension of that statement is that in order to balance things out men should be less represented in media in order to make space for women. To be fair, I am assuming that you agree wit this statement, though i do base this assumption on other things you've said.Ghost13 wrote:I think the problem feminists have with that is less that men want to see themselves in the spotlight and more that they are already overly represented in the media.
And there's this too:
You can't get this "even result" without reducing one side and increasing the other (artificially) and since you have finite resources and market space, you have to cut some things to make room for others. So if you desire more women oriented media, you have to prevent male oriented media from taking its place.Ghost13 wrote:I see plenty of (none sexist) content produced mainly for a male audience but still fairly little mainly for women. Once this has become more even we may talk again about what you call "genuine equality".
The more pressing issue is do you think that it is an outcome that should be desired in the first place? Or to think of it from a different angle, do you think that perfect equality of opportunity would lead to perfect equality of outcome?Ghost13 wrote:Equality of outcome would be very difficult if not impossible to achieve.Are you even willing to admit that you want equality of outcome as opposed to equality of opportunity?
Ok, why do you think that and what needs to be achieved in order for that to happen according to your pov?Ghost13 wrote:As for equality of opportunity. I don´t think we are there yet.

Now, that was exaggeration, but you get my point, hopefully.
