OMG Take a look on this : http://womenagainstfeminism.tumblr.com
They’re so full of shit. I would like to send my thoughts to them but they blocked the ask box.
This let me in a funny state. Frustrated and amused. I’ll try to use my best English for that.
First, they are clearly misunderstanding what Feminism is about. It is - for me at least - not about supremacy of women aver men. Not about “smashing the Patriarchy”. It is not about hating men. It is not about giving privileges to no one. It is - in my opinion - about equality between men and women. Not pulling down men, just making equal chances in life for both gender. Because yes, there is inequality for women in this fucking world. Women will often be pushed to do “girls” job, taking care of their children… (caricature? Not that much). So yeah we have the right to go to school, to work, to vote, to marry and divorce whoever we want. But we earn those rights not a long time ago and the oppression is still here alive in some countries on this Earth. We live in a world with Patriarchy. It does exist. It is so settle in our societies that we don’t clearly see it anymore and think it is normal. But I don’t think it is normal when i turn on my TV and see girls in bikinis dancing around guys who think this is a sign of success - this is, girls, a clearly objectification of women, see as sexual objects, am I wrong?. I don’t think it is normal to always see a umpteenth male main character saving the world in movies ans TV shows. I don’t think it is normal when I walk in street, a guy behind saying behind me : “yeah, shake that for me”. I don’t think it is normal for someone who’s been raped while she was drugged has to endure the mocking of the Internet - I am thinking of this 16 years-old girl in Houston, TX.
Of course I am not saying that all women are angels and has to be protected and all men are evil devils. I know a lot of them that think all of this is insane. My boyfriend use to tease me with my feminist side by saying sexist things and I laugh with him. I don’t ALWAYS feel offended and I am not an evil bitch barking at everything. There is a lot to work on. Nobody can denied it and those who do are blind as fuck.
I honestly think those who are anti-feminism don’t understand the real meaning of it or are just white bitches who never left their suburbs. They say feminists generalize on men and all. What about them? UUUGH - do I look like I pissed of? Because I’m fucking pissed of ! I don’t say they are entirely wrong. There are things that are exaggerated that extreme feminists might say or do and of course, everybody remember them - like the Femen in Europe, I really don’t like them - but still those anti-feminists see just what they want to see and don’t take any step back. They see everything in one color. Nobody HAS to be feminist but don’t spit on those who toke this liberty to be one. That’s what made me react to this Tumblr.
I love men. Damn, I so love them. For what they are. For what they give to the world. To the women. I don’t hate men. Why would I? I don’t want to live without men. I don’t want to dominate them. I just want people - men as women - to live as equal human beings. Fuck me right?
