Why I hate feminism.

You may be wondering why I have such a hate on for Feminism. Or maybe you know, or perhaps you don’t give a fuck. Well, regardless I’m going to tell you what I think. 

Basically I have a problem with any kind of activism that pits one group against another and hides under a thin veil of hate. Why does it have to be like that? 

It doesn’t. 

Start acting as if things like gender, race, sexuality don’t make a difference. Because they don’t. If you don’t give the “differences” power then they have none. 

The world is a fucked up place, and the boys will learn that eventually, but I refuse to let other people’s prejudices and apparent activism tarnish their view on things. 

They’re being raised that girls can do anything boys can do and vice versa. They’re being raised that it doesn’t matter what you look like, as long as you have a good heart. They’re being raised that it doesn’t matter who you love, rather how you love. 

According to someone on Twitter, this is disingenuous and irresponsible. I disagree. We aren’t pretending that these things don’t impact the world as a whole, but we’re trying to show our kids that there is a better way to see things.

  1. I think you’re confused as to what the feminist movement actually stands for, versus what people make it out to be.
    The movement is about being treated as equals. Being paid equally, paying the same amount for things like deoderant, shampoo, razors, and being viewed the same way as men in social and professional circles. It’s about receiving the same educational, and health benefits as men. It’s about being able to be a woman in trades, technology, and sciences, without them being treated as a stand out person in their feild, because of their genetalia.
    If your take on feminism is that those of us who consider ourselves to BE feminists want women to be held up on a pedestal, and given everything in the world, while the men suffer, then you are correct. Those people are assholes, and deserve to be treated as such.

    1. My main problem isn’t really feminism I guess, it’s more that Humanism isn’t a thing. Because really, THAT’S what we should be fighting for. Not breaking it up into little groups.
