I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this, to be honest. Do these women realize the irony of the fact that they wouldn’t even be ALLOWED to state their views this way had women before them not fought, starved, suffered, and died for their right to do so? That’s what feminism is, you poor, deluded fools.
If it wasn’t for feminists these women wouldn’t be allowed to vote, drive, work, or educate themselves. At all. Everything they have and enjoy in what makes up their life, every single right that these spoiled young women take for granted, their grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and great-great-grandmothers fought relentlessly for so that we wouldn’t be denied what was denied them. I’m appalled that the history of the Suffragettes and the women’s rights movement isn’t taught in schools alongside black history or the Holocaust. It should be a mandatory part of any curriculum because clearly, it’s needed.
And you may not want to “politicize your gender”, but guess what, sweetheart? That is done FOR you the second you are born whether you want it to or not. That’s kind of part of the whole problem. Someone needs to sit these women down and teach them what their parents clearly failed to teach because my God…they have no clue.
But, do we need feminism now? No.
Of course not! Because it’s not like women are raped, body policed, prevented from having access to abortion and birth control, mutilated, forbidden to vote or drive, killed by their partners, stalked, humiliated, groped in public, held prisoners under impossible beauty standards, or made to work for lesser pay, or anything.
Ooooh, that one! No, of course I wasn’t serious! It was all sarcasm to show how it’s deemed completely fine to say “skinny girls are disgusting bags of bone, real women have curves!” but if someone was to say “fat women are disgusting tubs of lard, men want firmness!” they’d get punched in the face. It was to highlight the hypocrisy and I figured, naively, that by taking that post to such extremes in terms of language it would be obvious what I was trying to do. But unfortunately, some people took it literally and thought that I was being serious.
