It's not worth condemning feminism over by any stretch, it's not feminism at all. It was a top of the head example I came up with to point out that it is strategically unwise to make people feel unwelcome if you might otherwise bring them to your side through camaraderie.

Some people won't be brought over by any means. Others might be open to your ideals if you approach them correctly, but will, flawed and mortal as they are, reject those ideals if they are presented as accusatory or antagonistic. I don't care how superior your morals are to the enemy's - presenting those benefited by the status quo as absurd and distasteful will not endear you to those benefited by the status quo.

I mean, I'm just saying that I'd rather see a broader range of people learn to accept positive ideals than use positive ideals to damn even those worthy of damnation.
