What feminism is:
- Feminism is a social movement that advocates for women’s rights, gender equality, and works towards trying to dismantle systems of oppression in society.
- Feminism is not the belief that one gender should be raised in power above another. The very definition of feminism shows a complete opposition to this belief. So when people comment against feminism, they are supporting sexism. There is no sitting on the fence. You are either a feminist or sexist. Unfortunately, most sexists don’t know they are sexist, and compose the majority of the population. They are unaware that sexism is something that has been forced on to them through the brainwashed media of a patriarchal society.
What feminism isn’t:
- Hating men.
That’s called misandry, and that’s definitely NOT what we’re about.
- Hating women who want to stick to traditional feminine roles.
Essentially, what we want is for women to be free to do what they like. If they want to be feminine, no problem. If they want to be involved in activities that are not usually considered feminine, no problem. This is about giving women the choice to be their true selves and not be deemed inferior to anyone else.
- Ignoring the struggles faced by men.
Hey guys, the patriarchy and toxic masculinity hurts you too.
