True feminists are not bra burners. They are simply people who wish equal rights for all. regardless or gender, race or orientation. And remember the ones to fight are not men but the man. Get it right.
My sisters are my family upholding their rights is far more important to me fundamentally. The false belief that there isn't such a thing as rape culture boggles my mind and how people make jokes about rape just makes me cringe even more..."HAHA this person was violated and stripped of all their human rights HAHA" never caring if there are assault victims in there audience. Blatantly ignoring my sisters is the the same as putting blinders on to the fact that that they are mothers, grandmothers, daughters, aunts, etc.
It is sad how some men in the gay rights movement disassociate with feminism without seeing the correlation...
Well said bro I REQUEST THE HIGHEST OF FIVES!!!!!!(or just normal high five is cool too ovo), I'm glad you are able to stand firmly with your beliefs YOUR SO AWESOME But yeah, the way the media and some ignorant men and woman display feminism is so controversial. All this, on top of all the real world atrocities happening against women and their human rights, it makes me so mad!!!X<
I love this stamp! I get so excited when I see that other people understand feminist is for equal rights for MEN AND WOMEN! A lot of people (female, and male) do not understand this. I wish other men would use this stamp, c: but satisfied this exists. Sorry I am late on this.
I have spent time in women studies classes since my wife is a WS major. The man hating simply pisses me off, its not necessarily men that is the problem but rather THE man. More importantly I have to say this "A person is smart, people are virtually crazy". On this token you can't turn and say to a man and demonize him for being supported of women's rights. I have been around feminists long enough that I can reply and fire back to their own bullshit. Especially with the war on porn.
The radical feminists ruined it for everyone. It's a lot like the Phelps family tainting Christianity exclaiming "god hates fags". The truth of the matter is quite a few of them are more reasonable than they are given credit. Now The label of being a female feminist is already bad. But here is another. I cant stand how men aren't allowed into the circle fighting for the same thing...whoops. I started rambling :~X
I think it's funny how people will go around dictating what everyone else believes or what God believes. Have you talked to everyone else? Have you talked to God? If you haven't don't make ridiculous claims. You just look foolish.
Yes guys have gender equality issues too, no doubt about that. I guess people just focus more on women because of historic oppression? I couldn't really tell you, it's just a theory.
I'm married to one. I also do not see the point in feminism which strives for female superiority. Andrea Dworkin is a nut case. I am simply sickend by the mere notion that to be amongst the feminist ranks you have to conform to X model. The two in particular are you have to be gay, and a woman. This quite simply is bullshit. If you truly want support from all parties don't alienate possible allies based on the fact that they may be men. It could be argued as well, that feminists have a reason to not trust men because men have a history of weaseling into and taking over something. That said is that reason to not allow men into an organization like MAR (men against rape)? After all once they are in that will just give them a reason to commit rape themselves. In the end most women think of feminist as the F word. True feminists are the ones who say "I'm not a feminist but...". With those words they are by their own admission admitting that they have their hopes for equality.
All of that said, I still stand as a minority within a minority (disabled bisexual) and am still dismissed on account of my having a penis. I back equality for everyone and I am proud to be a feminist.
Time and time again I have thought of writing a paper. The closing statement will be priceless. Rewording the last monologue in American Psycho. If you don't know it here it is:
BATEMAN (V.O.) There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it, I have now surpassed...
My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. I fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no escape.
But even after admitting this, there is no catharsis. I gain no deeper knowledge about myself, no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. There has been no reason for me to tell you any of this. This confession has meant nothing...
Bare in mind the topic of one is clearly not the same as the other. But the general idea is that I shed all the ideas and share everything I can and in the end it will be nothing or mean anything again for being a guy, so by proxy this writing will undoubtedly go unnoticed.
