Svetlana introduces herself

My name is Svetlana Voreskova. I am from Rostov on Don in the Russian Federation. I live now in Dublin Ireland. I work as a teacher of history and languages in a college near Dublin.

I used to think that feminists were just pathetic, insecure attention seekers who would stage petulant public hissy-fits when anyone said anything they did not approve of. After a horrible incident involving someone close to me however, I experienced the true depth of the vitriolic hatred that is at the heart of the feminist movement.

Since then I have been studying feminist literature and investigating various feminist groups mostly in Ireland and the UK. I have attended feminist seminars and events and have even reduced myself to engaging in some of their infantile public protests. I certainly know more about feminist theory and doctrine than most feminists do as is confirmed whenever I find myself debating one of them.

I live in a country where I enjoy equal rights and equal opportunities under the law. I am a strong, independent and educated woman. I don’t need whining feminists claiming they speak for me. If someone commits a crime against me then I will go to the police. If someone says something that offends me then I will either respond, or I will behave like an adult and get over it.

I am tired of members of the most privileged, pampered, cosseted demographic in the history of human civilisation constantly whining about how oppressed they are, and it annoys me when these people claim to speak for all women. They do not.

Far from being strong, empowered women demanding equality, feminists are weak, insecure people who cannot handle equality.

I work in IT, Community volunteer interested in Politics, support Capitalism as the best economic system for lifting people out of poverty, Skeptical scientist.
