  • AnonymousA big part of antifeminism is a reaction to harmful things done in the name of feminism. Let's call these people pseudo-feminists. I see feminism fighting antifeminism, but I don't see much of feminism fighting pseudo-feminism. Why do feminists choose to fight the symptoms if they could fight the disease?
  • OMG this is the best thing I have been asked! One of my first posts ever was a reaction to this and setting up MY feminism! It’s also part of why I chose the name for this project.
    I can’t give you a really good answer to this. I never really thought of it that way and so I never paid attention to it. But now that you bring it up I think I’d pay more attention in the future! Thank you!

im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.

Children are not possessions.
Children are not accessories.
Children are not relationship band aids.
They are tiny people with the same amount of feelings as an adult.

But with less capacity to process, express and healthily contain those feelings when necessary.

Be kind to them.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

emotionally manipulative things you should never say to people:

  • "i would kill myself without you"
  • "everyone leaves me, don’t leave me like they did"
  • basically anything that guilts the other person into staying in a relationship with you

  • AnonymousThere are reasons why feminism got a bad reputation. I don't know your stance on this but I saw many feminists who said it must be bc males are too stupid to understand etc. When it was something else. Like the loud screaming ppl who stopped shelters for male abuse victims or the ppl who comment on a picture of a man who was attacked with secateurs by his wife that women have it worse or the ppl who really are just man haters or the ones who just close their eyes to that and blame males.
  • You are right, there are lots of reasons that feminism has a bad rep. I dont think that men are stupid or deserve ill treatment. I think feminism should be fighting for equal rights for all genders, not just women.

I am so fucking sick if slut shaming.

horrific-pleasures:

Why is a woman not allowed to enjoy having sex? Why is sex such a taboo? It’s natural. It’s beautiful. It’s part of life.
