FEMINISM – You’ll love to hate me after reading this!

The word feminism means equality of rights of both the genders. God created men physically stronger than women to do things requiring power. However, there might be a few exceptions. Similarly, God made women equally, but differently powerful. Oh, our endurance and patience! We can bear children which men can not.

Feminism is the belief that men and women are equal. I call myself a true feminist. Feminist is not a bad word, it is a powerful one.
For me, it is the way of representing where I come from. It is a powerful gesture, a way of showing the world that I was raised by a man who cooks, washes his own clothes, who does household chores and who serves humanity, saving so many human lives everyday. Feminism is a word to describe that I grew up with a boy who always wanted me to perform better than him. A boy who gave up his needs so that mummy papa could fulfil mine. A boy who will never let anything/anyone come in between me and my dreams, my ambitions and my happiness. A boy strong enough to be called my brother!

 

 

 

 

Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. They already are. It’s about changing how the world perceives them

– G D Anderson


Feminism is a word to describe the way I grew up amidst men who have always believed in me. My friends, the men in my life who motivated me to never look back. Men who made me believe, that I wasn’t beneath anyone.
Feminism is not a bad word. Sexism is!
Most people think that being a feminist makes you hate men. Well,here’s the answer.

See the whole point about writing this, is not to substantiate how different we are. Every argument ends when I say we are equal, but in a different way. Even nature has segregated us in that way. Hasn’t it? Women want to be ahead of men. They already are in a lot of things, and vice versa.
Now lets talk about the hullabaloo, the havoc a few chauvinistic men have created. They haven’t deprived us of our rights to work or earn, they have deprived us of our rights to be treated as humans, the basic right to survival. That is sexism! And we need more feminists and less sexists. I have had the privilege of being in the company of men who have always empowered me. So dear brothers and sisters, who hate feminists, our fight is not with you. Our fight is with men who deprived us of our right to gender equality. Our fight is with men who don’t give us the right to decorate our lives the way we want. The basic right to study… the basic right to earn as much as we work… the basic right to laugh… enjoy our lives… live the way we want and not how they want… the basic right to be treated equally! They are the ones who oppress us. Our fight is with men, who treat us as adjectives and not as nouns!

A lot of people will not agree with me here. But believe me, feminism is nothing more than this! I want those men to understand every time you liberate a woman, you’re liberating yourself!
I’m a true feminist by all means. And I believe in the equality of both the genders. If tomorrow, say an injustice is served to a man, I shall stand with him. Because that is what feminism is about.
The question here is not about who will let me, the question here is who will stop me?

    Ethnocentrism – judging another culture solely by the values and standards of one’s own culture. in this article, the majority treats the women as weak and powerless.

  2. A great post and one I totally agree with and that last line I love, it just sums up the whole article…The question here is not about who will let me, the question here is who will stop me?

  3. I am disappointed..

    You said I will hate you after this, but it didn’t. Reality is I loathe feminists – but not “feminists” like you. Reality is the women who founded this feminist BS are sexists who hate men these are just some of the things that the “most respected” feminists teach young women”

    “The nuclear family must be destroyed… Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process. Linda Gordon”
    “I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig. Andrea Dworkin”
    “Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women’s movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage. Sheila Cronin, the leader of the feminist organization NOW”
    “Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice. Andrea Dworkin”
    “The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist. Ti-Grace Atkinson”
    “Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated. Catherine MacKinnon”
    “The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race. Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future – If There Is One – Is Female”
    “Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience. Catherine Comins” (really?? – FUCK YOU BITCH!! COMINS!!)

    So you see, feminism is built upon the idea that marriage must be abolished and these “icons” are like children who don’t have the capacity to think rationally. I was expecting you to utter words more or less in those tones as those crazy bitches – that way you wouldn’t have disappointed me because I will really HATE you. But what I saw was a person’s point of view of what feminism is for her – unfortunately nothing can take away what the movement really is:
    A bunch of dirty old hags who want to destroy the world and the family institution
