what is the definition of exploitation? some say that women are exploited because they do sexual things for money. but can't a man that spends hundreds of dollars at a strip club or to hire a prostitute (that he can't afford) be exploited by the woman. or a man who spends half of more of his paycheck on his wife might be exploited by the wife.
i think that the genders have equal but different roles. i believe that certain feminist ideas harm women by putting-down female roles like trading sex for money (in some way--like mariage, porn, etc). traditional feminist ideology expected women to take on male roles and made women feel guilty for doing things that are instinctual to women--what female animals also do.
until recently, men had an advantage to earn money directly because men were physically stronger and most jobs required physical labor. so women had to get money indirectly to survive through exchanging sexual favors (in some way--like marriage, prostitution, dating, etc). just kidding about dating. and it was a fair exchange between both parties.
