Has Swedish feminism gone too far?

3367 ratings | 406074 views
http://www.euronews.com/ In the gender equality stakes, Sweden is rated highly. But some Swedes feel it's being taken to extremes. It has the highest proportion of working women in the world and some two-thirds of university degrees are earned by women. New mothers and fathers both get generous parental leave. Gender role neutrality initiatives, however, some feel are being exaggerated. There's a politician who proposed that men should be required by law to urinate in a sitting position - partly because it leaves toilets cleaner and promotes prostate health, partly as an appeal for reason. That politician, Viggo Hansen, told us: "When my son was in kindergarten, they tried to force him to pee standing up, when we had taught him to pee sitting down. When the school let him sit down to pee, there was no problem. I had read about a school in Norway that officially banned boys' stand-up peeing. Lots of people's reaction was that was taking away boys' right to be boys." Ann Helena Rudberg joined the feminist movement in the 1970s, to fight for women's rights because she saw her mother suffer violence at home. Today she argues women have equal rights and that feminist political parties are taking things too far. Rudberg said: "It's a power struggle between men and women. And the effect of that is that on one side we have women and on the other side men. And this is not good for the children or for anyone." At a school in Stockholm named 'Egalia', teaching gender equality is a priority. Boys and girls are encouraged not to be limited by stereotypical roles or games. And since last year, there is a new word in the Swedish dictionary: "hen", which is a neutral pronoun for "he" or "she". Not everyone agrees about that. School director Lotta Rajalin said: "They think we are going to change girls to boys and boys to girls and that's of course not what we are doing. We like to give every human being the same rights, the same possibilities, the same responsibilities. And that is a question of democracy." Some critics say Sweden's government is taking a feminist agenda to an almost radical level. Others who also take International Women's Day seriously say the fight for gender equality is far from over.

(Romans 1:22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1:28) Just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. (1 Corinthians 1:20) Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world. (Deuteronomy 22:5) A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. (1 Timothy 2:11-14) Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Atleast all the Muslims moving into Sweden can sort these fuckers out. I'm actually happy that they are moving to different countries because they bring their beliefs with them. I can't believe I used to hate Muslims when they are doing us all a favour in a way. I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this aren't I

Looks like Sweden needs more and more Muslim men to teach Swedish men how real men suppose to be. Otherwise Swedish men may forget the masculinity

International Women's Day, when is International Mens Day? Why stop there, we have the MOBO Awards what about the MOWO Awards. We are all equal. It is the people that don't get equality, or think they don't, that shouts the loudest. Grown up and accept what life has given you. Wage gap does not exist.

I have no hope no more. The future generation of males will all be disgraces thanks to you brainwashing feminazis. It seems like i also need to brainwash my future son to be genderless because apparently that means "equality"

Why can’t all Swedes become unisex with sex change operations? Problem solved. Then everyone can pee sitting down and breast feed babies. No more shaving, bitter beers, farting jokes, Santa Claus, Jesus Christ, elf’s, soccer world cups, large smelly feet, grandpas, hateful body odor, creepy chest hair, gruffly voice, wooing Casanovas, silly Shakespeare, evil Einstein, Charlie and his chocolate factory, Dumbledoor. I mean it sounds great. What’s not to love? By the way are male dogs also required to pee sitting down? I see a tremendous job opportunity for dog trainers. Sign me up Sweden.

I have acually never heard of the fact that guys shouldn’t pee when their standing up, and I’m from and live in Sweden. Most of the Swedes aren’t THAT crazy about feminism lmao
When it comes to the world's biggest, richest, most powerful businesses, such as Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Ebay, and PayPal, they were all started by and are owned by men! Where were the feminists when these businesses were being started? Seems like they completely missed the boat! Are women just stupid or what?

Feminism in the older times were about getting woman more rights, like the right to vote. But nowadays. It’s just about being more privileged and more ‘entitled’ then men. We all need to group together and work together to stop this madness

Nahh... nobody is gonna tell me how to go to the bathroom that's retarded woman and Man are not the same and if you have to tell boy's not to be different you are gonna have a bad time because you are creating a passive man without personality or charisma perfect equality is impossible because the world is not perfect. Stop pretending that Equality in everything = Happiness Equality in everything = destroying one gender to make the other "Happy" not even dat woman don't want passive man.

You know what, screw feminism, I'm done and sick of it, and I know I'm not alone. It'd be a good cause if it would target the real offending countries where women are treated like trash, but *NO* , they take potshots at easy targets that already have MORE than equal rights, usually in their favor, and *IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH!!!* This "movement" is now officially evil, should be stopped, and now promotes *INEQUALITY,* MEN, PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AS A MAN. Seriously, screw these sexist, hypocritical, violent, hateful, man-oppressing, uneducated, bratty, spoiled, jealous, and reverse-misogynist *FEMINAZIS!!!*

You can't be further from the truth. The day you prove me that you can make a baby all by yourself I will change my mind. But until that improbable day what you say is worthless. Use simple common sense. Feminism was created to destroy the family. It succeeded. Now it' working on destroying the couple. By going along with their narrative you're playing their game. You're doing exactly what those who created feminism wanted. They are using you. It's the divide and conquer strategy. Our societies should go back to traditionnal values when societies were working coherently. Otherwise we're doomed.

i propose that all women should be required by law, to pee, standing up. that will reduce wear and tear on toilet seats which wear out more quickly by being constantly raised and lowered.

I am from Sweden, I wanna move somewhere where feminism doesn’t exist, it’s as impossible as flying. I am ashamed of my country coming up as allmost the first video when you search ’What feminism has become’ I am not allowed to free speech since I’m a straight person on a pride site. If they are so good, stand up for yourself don’t block my words.
