My feminist agenda is to make people understand feminism.
There are many misconceptions about feminism. Some people think that all feminists are lesbians or are aggressive, or too tough, too loud, too “butch”. This is NOT TRUE. This is what the media wants you to believe because some men are threatened by women having equal rights. They don’t want more “competition.” They don’t want to share the success and wealth with women. So the media puts all these negative things in your mind about feminism and feminists. Please let me correct some extremely common misconceptions.
Feminism is NOT about hating men. It is about equal rights for both genders. There is NO reason why women should be paid less than men or treated with any less respect!
Feminists come from all walks of life and we are all different people! There is no reason for feminists to be labeled the way that they are (as I explained above).
Feminists are not all women! There are many men out there who also believe and fight for gender equality. If you haven’t heard of the #heforshe movement, LOOK IT UP.
Feminism means something different to everyone, but it all boils down to the same thing: Gender Equality. The right for women to be WHOEVER WE WANT TO BE. We should be able to DRESS how we want to dress. Talk how we want to talk. Sleep with whoever we want to sleep with. Get paid the same dollar amount as men for doing the same work. We should be able to love whoever we want to love. We should be able to live however the fuck we WANT to live! And we should NEVER have to live in fear!!
I wanted to include in this blog a list of (current) famous feminists- female and male. The reason I’m only including the current famous feminists is because the list of feminists throughout history is extremely long! However, I strongly urge everyone to look into it, because it will probably fascinate you guys as much as it did me!
The Dalai Lama
President Barack Obama
James Van Der Beek
Queen Elizabeth II
Jamie Lee Curtis
….to name a few. Trust me, there are many, many more!
This is my vow as a woman and a feminist. I will not tear other women or men down. I will give everyone their right to be whatever they want to be and whatever makes them happy. I will FIGHT for the rights of humanity to be whoever they want to be. People deserve to have a happy and fulfilling life, no matter what that looks like to them!
I AM A PROUD WOMAN AND FEMINIST!
Love to ALL,
