Feminist doesn't mean you can't crack a joke. Feminist means, simply put, that we shouldn't be confined to gender roles, and that either gender should be able to do what they want so long as they are able. For instance, there are some men who are naturally wonderful with children. There's no real reason to be wary of men who want to work in a nursery or a day care. There's no reason a man can't be a midwife. If he has the desire and the skills, qualifies for the position, why the fuck not?
Most women wouldn't be able to pass the SAS fitness test, and if they can't then that's that, but if a woman wants to join the SAS and is able to show she's capable of holding her own, there's no reason she should be denied just because she has a vagina. You ever seen a woman who can qualify for the SAS? They look like fucking Amazons.
Some of the things that piss me off about some sects of modern feminists is that they seem to have no idea what feminism is, which is the right to pursue your dreams. I remember a while back there was a woman who failed the fire brigade test and took them to court for sexism, as she failed the stamina tests. No bar on women at all so long as they show they can handle the demands of being a firefighter, mind. Yet she demanded they lower the standards. I don't want them to lower their standards, I want them to have the highest standards there are so they can save me from a burning building if the day ever comes. If a woman passes muster, good for her, but don't demand standards are lowered in a job where peoples lives depend on said standards simply because you're not good enough. That's not being a feminist, that's just being a cunt.
`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'
