I don’t need feminism because:
-I am not a VICTIM.
-Equality includes MEN.
-As a raped woman, I know that not all men are MONSTERS.
-It’s freaking 2014
are you fucking kidding me. no. do you even know what feminism is, you privileged asswipe? feminism is NOT about hating men. in ANY way. at all. feminism is about making women and men and gender-queer people all equal to each other. it even includes queer rights, and fighting against racism. so yeah. not all men are ‘monsters’. But there again is that awful “not all men” which has been overused in disgusting ways that i don’t even want to get into.
Also???? you arent a victim??? what does that have to do with feminism??? you’re saying that just because you don’t see yourself personally as being wronged, you cant see that women and trans people are still victims of abuse and violence in the twenty-first century??? do they deserve that? are they not victims of a fucked-up society as well, or am I just imagining it????
and yes. equality does include men. however; men are altogether more privileged than females and trans people. in the US, women didn’t have the right to vote until less than 100 years ago. just think about that. When the titanic sank, women couldn’t vote in the US, which at that point was a fairly progressive country for its time. and you know who fought tooth and nail for that right? If you answered femists, you would be absolutely-fucking-right. But wait, you cant even appreciate that right because you aren’t fucking mature enough to realize the weight of your words, let alone the weight of your vote.
and yeah. it is ‘freaking 2014’. and that’s why I’m angry that there are people like you, who think that women and trans people are equal to men. women are still only paid 73 cents for every dollar made by a man. and that’s not even considering woc, who are paid even less. but you wouldn’t be concerned about that, would you? no. you look exactly like the type of privileged, ignorant, white girl that typically show up in these types of posts, claiming that you “don’t need feminism” because you think it doesn’t apply to you.
but ill tell you something. I wish I could live in your world; a world where social issues don’t exist, and I don’t have to fight every day just to be held equal to someone with a differently shaped chromosome. I wish I could live in that world, and be completely comfortable when I walk down the street alone. I wish that, when I can drink, I won’t have to watch my drink to make sure no one slips something into it while I have my guard down. I wish that female celebrities weren’t so constantly sexualized, especially teen celebrities. I wish that poc didn’t have to put up with as much shit as they do. I wish that all trans people could go on hormones. I wish for so many things, but I know that the only way we will see that progress is if feminists are still alive and kicking.
and that is why i do need feminism.
