Is feminism making women meaner?

A lot of people against feminism say that it is making women meaner or bitchier. Is this empowerment that feminists speak of really just making women mean? Why do people say that feminism is making women meaner? Are women becoming too demanding? Is feminism encouraging women to see things from a victimized perspective? Just some food for thought.

There's a really bad stereotype floating around saying women in America are immature and mean, and as a young girl in America who tries to be as humble and understanding as possible I feel this stereotype hurts and concerns me.

I'm interested in both the female and male perspective, but I'm guessing the male perspective would give a little more insight regarding this topic. Any ideas?
tynamite's avatar Women have the same amount of meanness, before and after feminism.

All stereotypes have a bit of truth to them, no matter how hurtful. Stereotypes aren't made up for no reason.

What I suggest you do, is to watch reality tv shows with female contestants, and compare them to ones with male contestants. For example Flavour of Love has more bitchiness than I Love New York even though it has the same format.

Of course feminism is from a victimised perspective. If feminism was from a privileged perspective, feminists wouldn't be talking about "male privilege".

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
