      1. I’ll go in impressed based on the little I know so far and hopefully by the end I’ll still be impressed.

        It’s hard for me not to appreciate people who are reported to be helping those in need. Should I learn some unsavoury facts, I’ll be sure to re-assess. 🤓

      2. Sadly, most “high-profile” “do-gooders” are doing good for themselves and their puppetmasters. True helpers do their work quietly and without applause

      3. There’s truth in that. However, there are also do-gooders who do good but because of their high profile, it’s more difficult to keep it quiet because their moves are watched.

        Also some high profile do-gooders recognise their privileged position and try to use it to draw attention to important issues they’re passionate about. I appreciate every do-gooder. Especially since Phoebe from F.R.I.E.N.D.S confirmed to me that ‘there’s no such thing as a selfless good deed’. 😁

      4. Well, who am I to argue against the wisdom of Phoebe? Whenever someone claims to be helping some “disadvantaged” group, they are working against some other perceived “privileged” group. Humanity rises and falls together – everything else is divide and conquer

      5. Society needs to function cohesively or it will collapse. Any attempt to “lift” some group or other unilaterally will disrupt the whole system. This must be addressed in any plan. Feminism is a failed ideology because you cannot address half the population with no regards to the effects on the entire society. I may have my personal opinions on what is better or worse, but how can anyone deny the fact society has to work cohesively if it is to survive? Feminism has no real world plan to address how society as a whole should function after women have been “liberated” or whatever terminology you want to use. I’m not for supression of women, that’s the other group, but there needs to be a working system. There was one that got us along for a long time …

      6. I’ll start by saying that I’m no sociologist or expert in feminism. And I do understand that few systems that are in operation today are perfect, including feminism. Still, all that says to me is that work needs to be done to get towards a plan that operates better.

        I agree with the need for society to work cohesively for it to function well. However, was it not in part the absence of cohesion that resulted in the need for a women’s rights movement, because women were oppressed and marginalised?

      7. Were women oppressed and marginalized? In the “West”? I don’t think it is a given that they were. All working/serf class people in the last 1000 years of European history had rough lives regardless of their gender, but were women particularly oppressed? From time to time they were burnt as witches, yes, but some men of science also died in flames. I believe it is more of the brainwashing to believe women have been oppressed in the West to the point of needing a feminist movement.

      8. Knowing the true meaning of feminist to be a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes, I can’t help but wonder just how much truth lies in the statement ‘If you’re not pushing for the equality and dignity for all women, then it’s not equality you want, it’s supremacy.’

        Equality for women is a concept that not only women should fight for. If by ‘there was one that got us along for a long time…’ you mean the very system that led to a need for the women’s rights movements, then perhaps you may have missed the point entirely. Let me know if I misunderstood.

  1. It is my opinion that more important than empathy for others would be a sense of responsibility and self discipline. We have more than enough “oh the poor so and sos” and “we need to fix society”. We could use a little more “I think I know what I can do to make myself a better and more productive person”. This would “improve society” if it is in need of improvement, more than empathy ever could.

  2. I do realize I may sound hard or cold in writing and I don’t mean to throw cold water on your desire to see this or any other film. I just have a low tolerance for untruths propogated throughout media as truths. I don’t want to turn your entertaining blog into a political rant space.

    1. It’s OK Steve. 🤓You’ve simply expressed yourself. I guess you and I see things differently, which somehow makes me more eager to watch this documentary. I can then finally take in what it has to say and find out whether my initial thoughts about Allred still hold true.

      I will take the compliment about my blog being entertaining and get to writing my next post. Thank you. 😁

      1. It certainly is entertaining! I’m not too sure a documentary about Allred will be all that informative since they tend to reinforce whatever the makers and their target audience want to hear, unless they’re the other kind of documentary (the outrageous one!).

        I miss your videos – been a while since you posted one of those, unless I missed it?

      2. Only time will tell how the Allred documentary will turn out.

        It’s true, I haven’t uploaded a video in a while so you definitely haven’t missed anything. I do plan to get back to it when things slow down in other areas. Fingers crossed next month works out. 😊🤞
