Okay, I have heard lord of opinions on feminism. But it’s mostly all biased against it. No one in my family is a feminist, none of my friends are feminists. I don’tsupport everything they do. But *whispers quieter than a mouse* I am kinda a feminist * social circle explodes with reasons why feminism is the antichrist*
Maybe I’m beige s little over dramatic but I’ve heard so many bad things. But I’ve been taught doing things like a girl is a bad thing. I have to censer my wardrobe to not offend a boss sensitive hormones. I, a fifteen year old girl, can’t walk down the street without being yelled at from passing cars about a blowjob for heavens sake! What is so wrong with wanting to be treated like an equal?
What are you takes on it?

I feel you on it. I live in a very sexist culture (my parents are missionaries in Russia) where I am often treated shamefully as a girl. Like getting inappropriate comments and such. I’m so sick of it. Does being a girl really single me out so much? Ugh.

Most things I’ve heard against it are against the “feminism movement,” rather than equality itself.
…as if they’re different.
But, as someone who identifies as a feminist, I can understand why some people hate that label. As with any label, there’s good and bad people that use it, and what it stands for kind of gets misrepresented by the bad people and ruins it for the good people.
Feminists want equal rights for men and women (and everyone in between).
But many people have this idea of them that they’re a little hypocritical, and perhaps for a good reason? One point of inequality between men and women is that men are required to sign up for the draft, and women aren’t. Men don’t like this, and don’t want to do it, but they have to. When it’s proposed that women should be required to do this as well, however, some people who identify as “feminists” FREAK OUT because why would they want that? …it always confused me why they do this…I mean, I don’t want to do it either, but if we have to have a mandatory draft, I think it’s only fair if everyone is required to register. And I know I’m not alone in thinking that.
…but those feminists aren’t as loud as the ones freaking out over it, so people get the impression that they don’t exist, and thus shun feminism.

In response to cat-calling and inappropriate comments, I like Laci Green’s thoughts/advice: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=peBddZQbWYk
Laci also has some good videos on why we need feminism, if people are interested. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UwJRFClybmk

I was actually about to make a topic regarding the impending law of women signing up for the draft. I was on this online forum and this woman was like “I am WEAK AND FEMININE I CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO SERVE IN THE ARMY BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH.” As sad as that is it was kind of funny because never before have I seen someone insisting they were weak and helpless. OK I’ll take my draft-views onto another topic so I don’t distract from this one 🙂

As far as feminism goes, yes I’m a feminist, and proud of it. No, I do not hate men. Yes, I think Jesus is a feminist too.

I like what Rainbow has to say. And then I will add a comment that I heard once by an activist I love, and is a huge feminist.

“I want equal rights. I want to be paid for my work like any man. I want my work to be judged off quality, not that I am a woman. Being a feminist doesnt mean I hate men or am going to go out and burn all my bras and throw away my heels. I dont want to be judged for wearing them, and I dont want to be judged for going to the grocery store in sweatpants either”

There are crazy expectations on women, that shouldnt be there. There are rights we don’t have access to, that we should. We deserve to be able to walk down the street at night, we deserve to be educated, we deserve to be compensated fairly.
And on the other side of things, men should not have to “be tough and not cry” or conform to societies standards of what a “real man” should be (unless you are violent against women, then you are not a man, you are a lot of words I shouldnt use).

And I agree, its this idea of what feminism is that I think throws so many people off, and as far as the draft thing Rainbow mentioned (and I hadn’t heard about women potentially being drafted) a lot of people who claim they are feminists are only up to a certain point, and I think that makes those who are feminists look bad. You cant say “I am a feminist and believe in equal rights until _____________” Plus so many feminists have turned into “I want to be superior to men” which is also not what the entire movement is about.

I am a proud feminist. I believe in equal rights on all levels. I want to be compensated fairly and to the same extent as my male counterparts. I want access to healthcare like they have. I want to be able to be a leader without being called “bossy” or some other words Im not going to type. I don’t want to be judged for what I wear. I dont want to be unsafe at night because I am a woman.
And Im going to get all controversial in here and say that I dont want my transgendered sisters to be oppressed because of what they chose. Same with transgendered men. Society has put gender roles on all of us, men and women, and they need to be broken. We need to stop standing for it. And not just in America but everywhere.

Personally, I am against the modern movement of feminism. Feminism has become less about making women equal and more about putting men down and re-defining women(not how God intended). Most feminists are adamant about abortion, and birth control. They want a women to be able to sleep around as much as they want… and they tend to judge women who choose to stay at home and take care of her children (while loving and serving her husband).

I am totally for women being able to vote, go to college, or whatever… But all this other hooplah is just a bit eccentric for my conservative tastes.
