Listening to an extreme feminist lecture about anything is ridiculously hard to deal with.

Notice that he did not say extreme, but many people see feminism as extreme and so don't listen to important things that a "feminist" has to say.

Those who view feminism as a sort of monolithic entity should engage with feminist literature. You can find a "feminist" taking stances all over the map.

I noticed that at first and debated with myself for a while on how to write the post without heavily criticized.

I am a feminist in the "classic" sense, and I think most men in the (developed) world are. In the, women and men are equal on an intellectual and professional level sort of sense. The "Modern" feminists, usually portrayed as angry lesbians who think the whole male world is out to get them are the ones i think are difficult to listen to, and the ones i honestly think are setting the feminist movement backwards.

That's a bit of a stereotype. Also, most men and many women too, don't identify themselves as feminists because of the stereotype and/or extreme that is associated with it.

Lol ok her lecture was about unfairness in co ed sports. Her proof. Asking 7 woman for their opinions. These went from one lady saying she cant play her best because she is intimidated by men, the other is I dont get the ball enough, a third is I tend to socialize with others on the field, and she feels like she is just there. I dont know what the fuck she was talking about but when we asked why didnt you interview men, she said she only wanted a females opinion. It was ridiculous and I stopped listening about 15 min in.

And for the extreme feminist thing, I really dont know what the extreme is because I barely encounter them.

oh my god, thank you! What is ridiculous is how impossible it is to find people who actually understand what feminism and don't go completely bonkers whenever they hear the term.

people from any belief system can get carried away and take it too far but i've not come across many feminists like that and i've met a lot.

people also don't understand that men can be feminists! I'm one; quite simply because, like feminists, i believe that women get a raw deal in society. It's the same as being anti-racist to my mind. Feminists are not angry, men-hating lesbians, it's such a lazy stereotype.
