i’m gonna make this one thing very VERY CLEAR.
i have a lot of feminist friends. actually i classify myself as a feminist.
but i say this one thing that makes people go ‘what?’
I am a feminist and a mysogynist all at the same time.
you know why?
being a feminist means the following:
- to believe that all women should be treated as equal in every way shape and form
- to enforce the obvious truth that any woman should and do have the ability and right to be independant and confident with who they are, what they wear, who they want to look like and what to do with their life.
- to be proud of their gender and make their own decisions just as everyone should.
…as well as anything else that may fall between those points.
but then people say ‘well how are you then a mysogynst’
BEING A FEMINIST DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO LOVE EVERY HUMAN WITH A VAGINA.
there are a select few who are horrible people, who do horrible things and say things that make other people feel horrible.
i do not and will not treat every female like some kind of saint based on their gender. IT’S THE ENTIRE POINT OF BEING FEMINIST. to be treated with no bias.
i don’t think of myself as an overly ‘girly’ person.
i don’t like the color pink, i don’t cook or wear anything overly floral.
but here’s what i do love
i love my footy, would have steak every night of the week if possible and would find nothing better than to sit in my track pants all day every day if i could.
i’m sick of being told that all women are beautiful and therefore i must like who they are.
women are beautiful creatures, just as men are a beautiful also.
i have a right to dislike anyone i want, no matter what gender, age, sexual preference, race or religious belief. just as much as they have every right to hate or dislike me and anything that they may not like about my personality.
I would never hate someone purely because they’re chinese or christian etc. but being a person, does not mean you’re a good person.
i love being a woman and love women for everything they stand for.
but i also thoroughly hate some people and for good personal reason who just happen to be women, and that is my right.
WE ARE ALL THE SAME. SO DON’T THINK I’M GONNA TREAT YOU ANY DIFFERENT.
