A friend of mine once stopped dating a guy after he told her that her feminist ideals were â€œa turn off.â€? What he was saying, of course, is that he doesnâ€™t want to date a woman who demands equal treatment and respect, because thatâ€™s just no fun. Incidentally, heâ€™s still single, but heâ€™s not alone in his mentality. A lot of people believe feminism has a negative effect on society. Others argue that though feminism was once necessary, itâ€™s irrelevant now. But theyâ€™re both wrong.
