Swedish feminists burn £10 000.

Postby Master Yoda on Mon Aug 02, 2010 1:48 pm

Happend a month ago in Sweden, and I just thought of what you guys from different countries than Sweden think of this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSiRIyhU ... re=related

This is the feminist party in Sweden who burn £10 000 real money. Their point of this is to show how big the difference is between men and women's salary (how much women are treated unfairly in the working life).

The lady who's head of the feminist party and seen in this link is saying something like: "I also feel that it's a real mockery to burn money, but I don't believe that it provokes near as much as the discrimination women feel in the working life here in Sweden."


My opinion? It's a fucking disgrace against the third world and the workingclass. And I don't see how this will benefit women. Now there's a comeback against feminists argument's so evident that even a three year old can see it.

Feminist: "Women should get more money!"
Random: "WELL DONT BURN MONEY"

im all for equal rights etc etc blah blah fking blah but the thing that really pisses me off is when a woman who chooses (whether or not it was planned is by the by) to have a kid, they take up to 12 months out of work, leaving the employer having to find another member of staff (so paying double for no extra staff) and then the woman comes back and expects to be given the same payrise/bonus as someone who worked for those 12 months.

yes this something thats happened to me (im not the one who got up the duff btw). it pissed me off something rotten that I worked for a year, she took a year out. she came back, and then got a payrise because it would be unfair not to give her one. shove it I say. you work for a payrise, not sitting about watching trisha...

Looks like she's spent her entire life saving that £10,000 to burn to prove nothing at all.

I have no problems with equal rights but for some reason women only want to be treated equally when they benefit, as soon as it would mean they have to give back something they are appalled by the idea alone... it's tiring and with such an attitude nothing will happen as most men will tell them to f*ck off on both occasions then and I don't blame them.

And I believe acts like this burning of money are a waste and have no effect at all, like said before, the money could be better spend like giving it to a charity. That would not only raise attention to there point but also helps out people instead.

I think it just gives the message that these modern feminists are actually stupid. Why give them more money when they just burn it?

Surely a charity which caters to womens issues would have been a much better use of that money.
Silly feminists.

Don't forget, they could have brought a new kitchen with a bed in it with that.

I'll stop now.

He has it.

What's the male version of a feminist? A chauvinist? I can't really come up with anything equal, which is viewed with the same kind of "respect" as feminism.

OMG what a stupid and silly ****. Be glad all of you who didn't understand what she said, you'd might risk an aneurysm. Lots of "feminism" talk with some pretty below the waistline rethoric and trying to make the point that swedish women are an oppressed. And when she is putting the bills on the grill (lolwat) she is basicly telling the journalist that "yeah I'm really uncomfortable doing this too, I'd rather not burn all this money ( indirectly: but all you men made me do it)".

I'm all for equal pay for equal jobs but that doesnt seem to be her issue. Yes some woman dominated proffessions are low pay, but so are some man dominated proffessions. "Feminists" like her is a disgrace to women in the entire non-western world.

Clearly paid too much money already, if they get enough to burn it.

I do believe that people should be treated equally in the work place, this is not just women, but men too. But the onus is apparently on the women being treated more than equal to the point where there is an imbalance in their favour.

If a woman gets maternity leave, to go and have a baby, then an equal amount of time should be given to the man for paternity leave. Equal pay is fine, where the jobs are equal and both parties work the same amount of hours and do exactly the same job, where the pay should be equal, with the same range of benefits for male and female.
