Debbie, the answer is, not favorably.  If you have ever read her work, "Promethius," (the precursor to the Frankenstein genre) then you know how illiterate and illogical she was.  She intended to write horror, but I found the book exceptionally dangerous: it is possible to be bored to death.

Feminism has shown women in less than their best light.  Here are a few cases in point:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aileen_Wuornos

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madalyn_Murray_O'Hair

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Smith

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeaky_Fromme

The list goes on and on.  What good is there in the blind and bitter hatred of all things male and militant acting-out on all that mindless hatred?

Mary Wollstonecraft published a document called “A Vindification of the Rights of Women” in 1792, a long time before the suffragette movement. In her document she advocated the social and moral equality of both men and women. Wollencraft’s ideas are thought to have shaped the suffragette women who campaigned for the vote for women in the 1900’s.

I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."

AP, the monstrosity that we currently call feminism is a very severe disservice to both genders.  Unfortunately, there are many women who have become so indoctrinated to the femilist left merely by attending college that they cannot pass a security clearance on loyalty grounds: they have some nasty "personal issues" that renders them unfit for positions of trust.

We'll call her Eileen, not that it is her actual name.  Eileen applied to this lab about a year ago as a theoretician.  We began the routine background investigation only ti find that she had a criminal record (two stabbings) and at least three pseudonyms (before age fifteen).  She presented a few excuses, always defaulting to gender issues, none of which dismissed her violent past and untrustworthiness.

She filed an action against the Department of Energy for (an undisclosed sum) claiming sexual discrimination. 

Judge Andrea Millard said:  "The petitioner has shown specific cause not to be granted a security clearance which disqualifies her from the applied position.  Furthermore, she has threatened a number of female applicants that if they did not give way to her, she would retaliate (specifications followed -- a laundry list of feminist key words).  She has threatened to entrap a number of male applicants and employees that if they did not grant her demands, that she would ruin them professionally and socially.  It is the judgment of this court that the petitioner is denied on basis of perjury." 

Millard then remanded "Eileen" to psychiatric custody.

There is not a week where we don't get at least one such event.  Pardon me for saying so, but that is not equality: that is a demand for absolute supremacy by the most reckless, ruthless, and prejudicial means imaginable.

Even light will bend to do our bidding if we apply force correctly. The lowest servant in Heaven is still in Heaven, whoever rules in hell is still in hell, but they won't rule for long. No man stands taller than when he stoops to help a little child.

Rock, you are still as cuddly as a roll of barbed wire.  Maybe that one woman deserved not to go to work in your laboratory but we aren't all like that.

Leftists haven't been right yet -- about anyone or anything.
