as a woman, a person of color, and a person with mental illness, anti-feminism makes me uncomfortable. people who are anti-feminist are either a) misinformed about what feminism actually is, or b) they’re against social equality for people like me. that’s as simple as it is, because feminism’s ultimate goal is to rid society of oppression.
i don’t understand how someone who has truly taken the time to educate themself about feminism would be against a movement that aims to rid our world of sexism, heterosexism, ableism, racism, etc. a world where feminism prevails is the kind of place where truly anyone can succeed.
i hope i don’t get too preachy or idealistic sounding here (hey, you asked, anon!), but i want to live to see a world where people of color aren’t killed by the police on a daily basis, or where 1 in 4 women aren’t sexually assaulted in their lifetime, or where lgbtq people don’t have to be scared of being disowned or left homeless. i want everyone to have the tools and ability and support to be the best they can be — that’s what feminism aims to achieve. that’s flippin’ awesome, anon!
I hate when a person says they’ve had a bad day and everyone, instead of trying to cheer them up, enters a competition of who’s had the shittest life
