How Often Do You Read Books?

  • Every day - I'm a massive bookworm.
  • At least once a week.
  • Only when my TV's broken and the Internet isn't working.
  • Hardly ever - unless it's for school.

But I wanted to argue against the female extremists, who's favorite phrase is "It's because I'm a woman, isn't it?". No, its not because of that. But a lot of women still feel entitled to the same things men are more equipped with. I think you're missing who I am applying this to. Is it wrong to find this amusing? There certainly are female extremist, claiming that they're feminists. Males do this as well.  Not that there's anything wrong with this, but the title "feminist" gives the impression that you are for women's rights. Funny,  when you hear of masculinists... people aren't always as accepting. I am a girl, but I'm not a feminist. We should be for equal rights, not just the protection of those of one gender. (Sorry! I trailed off a bit... :/ )
