She’s saying she’s not a feminist because it discriminates and here you are literally discriminating her for not being a feminist. Thanks for being a living example of why it is an unnecessary discriminating movement.
The reason people are frustrated with her is because feminism is literally the opposite of discriminating. If you or anyone else would take 2 seconds to google it or just pay attention, people would realize that feminism is about defining, establishing, and defending EQUAL political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women!! People take offense when high profile female role models say that “I’m not feminist because I like men” or “I’m not a feminist because it discriminates” because it is literally spreading false information. And before you retort with the atypical, feeble excuse that “I know some feminists and they hate men and don’t shave and a 3rd stereotype”, just don’t. Because that is the same exact mindset that perpetuates the broad stroking of entire organizations, groups, and even races. So the next time you (or anyone, as this is a worldwide problem) would care to continue spreading misinformation and brainwashing the people around you whom are small minded enough to be convinced, please just don’t. I’m sure Fox News will pick up your slack. In short, I’m a male and I need feminism because people don’t actually know what feminism is.
See, the problem here is there is a chance she’s been exposed to ‘feminism’. As in, the bullshit I see way too much on here and around the internet (the ‘man hating’ ones and so forth). And that shit discriminates and is toxic as all hell. And that unfortunately is why I am too uncomfortable with considering myself a feminist. Because there’s too many out there making it look bad, thus getting responses like these.
So you know what to do in this situation?
BE THE ACTUAL FEMINIST AND BETTER PERSON AND EDUCATE PEOPLE!! Don’t fucking shout and yell and scream at them that they don’t know anything, just. Fucking. TALK!
