Understanding Pickup

Mystery's show on VH1, The Pickup Artist, has gotten a lot of mainstream attention. As a result there are scores of people in that audience trying to wrap their minds around this whole "pick up thing".

I've read a few message boards where people are discussing the show, and almost universally trying to discredit the pick up. Why are people so against pickup? First instinct might be to assume that girls would be against it, but that guys would all be excited about it. Think about it - it promises to fulfill the #1 goal for nearly every man on the planet.

Here's what I think is happening.

Radical feminism is SEXISM

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

Feminism - the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

Sexism - prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex

Anti-Feminism - Antifeminism is opposition to feminism in some or all of its forms.

#yesallwomen and #yesallpeople have been trending recently on twitter, for anyone here who as an account on well basically anything. And this has sparked up some interesting questions about feminism and more interestingly, anti-feminism. Just in case any misunderstandings occur, I’d just firstly like to stress that antifeminism is opposition to feminism in all OR SOME of its forms. So, as oxymoronic as it sounds, I am an antifeminist feminist.

Let me explain. I’m all for equal rights for women, I’m all for women getting paid the same for a job they do to the same standard as men, I’m all for women not having to worry about getting raped every time they enter a club, I’m all for women receiving equal sporting opportunities yada-yada you know the rest.
