Feminism has fast become a dominant ideology. When so many of the girls you meet have feminist leanings, should you ever actually date a feminist?
One of the more unusual phenomena we see in the West right now is that in many cases, men and women operate under divergent belief systems.
It’s quite odd, when you think about it. Most places, at most points
in history, men and women operate under the same belief system, and
agree on the same tenets. Usually that belief system is a religion,
like Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, or Shinto.
But in the absence of religion, other causes come to fill this space
by inspiring a new form of religious belief or fervor. Any time something has an -ism attached to
its name, it stands a reasonable chance of coming to occupy
religious-level importance to people.
One such example is feminism.
Feminism has reached a degree in the West where non-believers are immediately ‘othered’ by the more hardcore adherents of the philosophy. It has its own truths, like the wage-gap and ‘rape culture’, that are immune to facts and statistics and have moved beyond scientific falsifiability. And it engenders a particularly combative relationship between the sexes.
The purpose of this site is not to either support or combat feminism; feminism comes and goes through history, and is a perpetual feature of advanced, wealthy, safe societies. The purpose of this site is to give you useful tools to make better life decisions.
And the one we’ll talk about today is this: should you ever date a girl who subscribes to feminism... or any other -ism diametrically opposed to your own beliefs?
