Gayle Tzemach Lemmon: Women entrepreneurs, example not exception

Women arent micro--so why do they only get micro-loans?

    Anyone who can think for themselfs? and who want equality should hate modern feminism in western countries. It´s not about equality anymore, it´s about giving women all they want with the expence of men and without any responsibility. Don´t believe their lies.

    This is a great speech! And you, who are commenting bad things, need? to shake your head and open your eyes because with that narrow view of life, you’re getting nowhere.

    Don’t be?

    I’m sorry you see it that? way.

  6. MsTaz98

    I respect you and a? girl.

    Why is it just Tedxwomen? I really? get annoyed whenever there is a talk about gender. It should be Tedxgender. So that there are equal opportunism, so that people will stop whining.

    Does anyone start to hate modern feminism?

    P.S I am a woman.

    It’s beyond me how this turned into a discussion about the supposed evils of feminism. Maybe I missed the line where she declares? war on men.
    Or maybe I should return my Man Card because I just don’t get what leconfidant is talking about (whose comments show everything BUT confidence).

    I read LOADS of feminism when I was young, definitely more than most people. Nowadays, I’m guardedly pro-equality.

    I put up a hater comment which I now regret but it remains the most liked.
    Now I’m taking stock of the same slightly irrational reaction happening around me.

    Maybe Technology Education and Design as? a title encourages guys who enjoy women’s insights but not women’s politics.

    But yes going by the evidence, for better or worse TED is feminist and not just TEDWomen but TED generally

    you make it sound like Ted is UNDENIABLY feminist. in that case, why are you subscribed to a feminist YoutubeChannel, feminism being something you "instinctively" abhor? it puzzles me that people would subcribe to TedTalk(which? according to you is obviously feminist) only to thumbs down all the feminist videos.
    It’s like a capitalist buying 10 copies of the communist manifesto just to go on a rant about how the books are a waste of money. it’s just irrational and a waste of time for everyone.

  11. leconfidant

    Click around. Only new atheists are acceptable (though they are untypically polite)? and Buddhists like me. Spirituality maybe, promoting, say, Greek Orthodoxy would be shot down.

    Two men’s issues total. Zimbardo’s 5 minute Demise of Guys and Porter’s Call to Men was "Men have the right to be sensitive like women", (feminist agenda).

    I’m picking up a general backlash against feminism, but it’s more instinctive than eloquent.

    For better or worse, TED is demonstrably feminist and atheist.

  12. uiluj13

    TedTalk is not about spreading propaganda. These people are real people doing real things in real life. They are invited to TedTalk to simply inform you about what they contributed to the betterment of the world. Feminists are simply one of the many special interest groups invited. If there was an important person out there advocating for masculism, I’m sure he would be on TedTalk. If an atheist contributed positive change to the world, he/she would be on TedTalk talking about atheism.?

  13. leconfidant

    My take is it’s because men aren’t mentioned, nor other kinds of inequality (rich/poor, north/south, age race, orientation, etc). Other talks discuss solutions for everybody. This furthers women’s interests exclusively. A few of us are a little jaded from supporting feminism. But you’re right, we’re being more sensitive than? sensible. I’ve started analysing what’s behind this and your opinion is welcome. That doesn’t explain Garten, who isn’t even feminist, but I distrust her in the same way

    I agree with you, there shouldn’t be a woman’s ted. But you missed the point of this video. People still see women as an EXCEPTION even though THEY ARE NOT. That is the point. Women SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN SPECIAL STATUS. I am a woman and I believe this. So why are you swearing? and shouting at me? Becuase you can’t get the point of this video? Oh well. Not my problem. Have a nice day.

    Stating a problem is not the same as complaining. And talking about the problem and the solution is a form of action. She is trying to transform what women think and expect of themselves, so? she IS shooting higher. You’re basically undermining the power of speech, inspiration, and general communication.

  16. hindlebrad

    This video didn’t sound very "complaining" to me… She sounded inspirational and hopeful to women,?

  17. hindlebrad

    Did you watch the same video as me?? I’m sure you’ve had some negative experiences with the opposite gender, but for God’s sake,? GROW A PAIR!! Women are not out to get you. Next time, listen to what the woman says instead of projecting your BS.

  18. claing17

    Wow its always the same…its not fair we are not equal…blah blah….how about you get out there and WORK for what you want instead if bitching about what you do not have. Do you think successful men got to be so successful by complaining? How about you stop aiming higher and just shoot higher…That is what that young woman from Afghanistan? did.

  19. cutswift

    What grinds my? gears is that some people will look at the dislike count and imagine misogyny as a motivation rather than understanding that a lot of people just clicked the downward pointing thumb because they thought it was trite, stating the obvious and a little lacking in substance.

    Men? and Women deserve equal rights.

    Men and Women are not the same.

    None of the two is better.
