since i was little my mom has always told me that when a boy was being mean to me that it meant he liked me and that’s probably why feminism is important
How about instead of “feminism” we have “equality?” Feminism implies an air of dominance to the female sex, which does nothing for the cause because nothing is even. Equality is just that - equal treatment of both sexes because although men may seem preferred, It’s a) Not always true b) much better than it used to be for women. Instead of shooting for female dominance, shouldn’t everyone be shooting for equality?
hey friend. so feminism does mean equality. if you know some women who hate men/want to be dominant over men and also consider themselves “feminists” they are probably doing feminism wrong. feminism does not imply an “air of dominance to the female sex.” literally all you have to do is google the word feminism and that should clear it up for you. equality is very important, and in regard to the equality of women and men, feminism is what is necessary now, in order to gain women’s (and every other marginalized gender’s) EQUALITY to men.
feminism does not exist in order to loudly hate men, but rather it began to give women the rights to do basic human things like own property and go to college. feminism is relevant, regardless of whether it is “much better than it used to be for women.”
just because i can vote now and have the opportunity to go to college doesn’t mean I (and all of my other female peers) don’t deal with daily discrimination because of our gender. getting called a bitch and a whore for “friendzoning” some boy that I am not interested in, is a women’s issue, because it perpetuates the oppression of women. but it is a men’s issue as well, because society ingrains a very skewed idea of “masculinity” into men, teaching them from a young age that they are the authority, women should to bend to their wills. which is equally as harmful. (not to mention women still get paid less than men???) women are still working towards equality and still have a long way to go (especially women of color, and again literally anyone who isn’t a (white) man)
i made this post because i noticed a societal thing that is harmful to children, both boys and girls. little girls are taught to think that malicious teasing from a fellow little boy is his way of showing affection. statistically, we can see that relationship violence is alive and well today (and it is most often against women)(not to say that their isn’t violence against men, because there is) and it is just alarming to see that this thinking, to believe that love can be synonymous with abuse, can be ingrained so early and with good intention.
please now think about why you commented on this post. did you read what it was about, or did you see the word “feminism” and get kind of threatened? because your argument suggests the latter.
hey excuse me why am i pretentious
like yeah but why are you saying this to me?
today i met a puppy and i cried bc of the puppy and it’s not the first time this has happened
still a little disappointed that lungs aren’t like an inflated bubble gum consistency that’s a huge bummer
this girl in my class says she doesn’t believe that minimum wage should ever be raised ((because then her (exploitative) father would have to pay his employees more money and her family would be less wealthy)) so today i kicked her
