I'll be taking a break from the site, at least until it finds a new punching bag than feminism. I want to keep fighting the good fight, but I'm tired. To paraphrase Theoden, what can one do against such reckless hate? I came here to be entertained, not to have to defend women's rights and basic common sense on every third post. This isn't quitting in a huff, it's that can't keep commenting, but I can't in good conscience be on the site and say nothing. Goodbye admin, goodbye all, for the moment.

You're completely right. I also know that's what the post is about it's just from what I've seen and experienced from feminism in general. I've just never actually seen a feminist in favor of actually being a sort of like a "typical woman."
Are there feminists out there who even like that sort of thing? I've only seen feminists, or mainstream feminists protest against living as a woman would usually live.
That's also why I think they shouldn't be called feminists. -
They suck all the femininity out of everything..
..it's more like they want to be more masculine

Well, you don't hear much about it on FJ, but there's also the post-feminist stream of thought. It was basically a reaction to earlier feminism, saying that while women *should* have the right to things enjoyed by men (pants, being prime minister, etc.) not every woman wants that. We can handle - and enjoy - femininity, even sexualization. Post-feminism has its own issues, but since feminism is a broad philosophy, there's actually lots of variation in it.
There's even a lot of people writing about the intersection between "mainstream" (read: white, wealthy) feminism and rights movements for different cultures and ethnicities.
I only know so much about it though, so I'd really encourage you to find more information from a better source than me. If the feminism you've encountered hasn't really spoken to you, I hope you find something you can get behind.

Yeah they should have the right to live the way they want to. I guess I just wish it wasn't one-sided sometimes. It's okay when they fight for a lifestyle but it's not okay to make their lifestyle the only one..
I guess sometimes it gets to me more than it should. So many women like the idea of power whether it'd be power over men or power in general, so many women like it.
..and I don't know why but I really love the idea of like being a woman..the way it always has been. But you know my beliefs pisses off more than just feminists..because my beliefs sorta mix in with gender roles. Which in a way I sort of still wish was still a thing..
the new thing is to the fucking extreme.. lets all just be.. genderless and gender neutral. Lets all just all be the same, and lets just all have the same boring lifestyle. Yeah..awesome..

These are questions that don't have easy answers - how not discriminate between genders, while still keeping the particulars that make up part of their identity, that make them special.
My personal philosophy is to just to not care what people want to do with themselves, so long as they're not hurting or judging someone else. People who do that can go fornicate themselves.
