Andrew North Blows Up The World

Andrew “Danger” North is no ordinary third-grader. He, his brother Jack and his father are spies. At least, that’s what Jack’s always told Andrew, and everything Andrew’s learned from his dad's favorite spy movies tells him it must be true. So when Andrew finds Jack's graphing calculator he's 100% sure it's a communication device that will put him in touch with the secret spy headquarters. When he tries to make contact with headquarters through the calculator he accidently punches in a code that might blow up the world. As if that’s not bad enough, his math teacher confiscates the top-secret communication device. Now Andrew’s on a mission to find his brother's communicator and save the world from mass destruction.

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... :/ )
