A number of my issues with the brand of Feminism on DU [View all]

are represented here:

I realize it is a bit meta, so I'll go into a little explanation here:

There is a whole kerfuffle over the Spiderwoman Cover... largely kicked off by someone claiming to be a Feminist.
Her (his?) issue with the cover, according to her argument, stems from the Spiderwoman's position. Someone else points out the position is fairly close to several typical Spiderman positions... she makes an argument that boils down to "nu uhhh". A number of images get posted that show Spiderman in fairly compromising positions and she gets asked her thoughts on them... she refuses to address them except to say they're no where near the same thing.

So it came down to she was offended by something that men might enjoy seeing... but had no problem with eye-candy for women.

So, my thought for the day is this:
If you're for equal rights... then be for equal rights... not just the ones convenient for you.
