Feminism

A lot of things actually made me think about doing this but I don’t really want to go too in depth because no matter what you say about feminism people are going to hate you. I mean, I don’t really care that people will hate me over the internet because it’s the internet but it’s a bit annoying to have to distinguish between which comments bring anything meaningful to the table. Hopefully there won’t be that many people who see this and comment ‘kill yourself’ since I’m not that well known.

So the things that prompted me to do this was mostly to do with people not knowing what feminism actually means. Feminism has nothing to do with superiority over men it’s just about equal rights. I just went to do a search of its definition and one of the searches was ‘feminism is cancer’, seriously? It really shows how many idiots there are on the internet. The ACTUAL definition that pops up for feminism is ‘the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.’ People are confusing feminists with feminazis. A feminazi is a VERY extreme feminist who wants superiority over men which is very different to a feminist.

Now, the other thing that also prompted me to talk about this was all the extreme psychopaths who think women should be superior over men. Well first off superiority over another type of person has been happening throughout time and it’s totally never ended badly (yea sure) so what could go wrong with women superiority?

The whole reason the word ‘feminazi’ was made was to be able to categorise the two. Feminists equal equality, feminazis equal superiority.

The same thing is happening with Muslims and terrorism. A small group of people are exercising extreme Muslim ideals when the majority of them are not. We mustn’t allow extremists in anything to diminish the values of creating equality.

Any discussion where everyone has the same opinion about things isn’t a discussion. It’s just a bunch of people talking about the same problem saying yes to each other. We need diversity. We need different sexes, different cultures, different beliefs, and of different social status, to be able to come together and find solutions that benefit everyone.

 

Anyone who is really extreme about anything is just annoying and not good for anyone around them. So many things are wrong with being overly obsessed with anything but that’s something I’ll talk about another day.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and maybe have a bit less hate towards feminists and maybe try and be a bit less radical.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think if asked the question “do you think women and men should be treated as equals”, most people would answer ‘yes’, which by definition makes them feminists.
