Person: I’m a woman and I don’t need feminism
What she’s actually saying:
My life is perfectly okay and I don’t really care what other women go through
I think feminists are just whiny and can’t take jokes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes
I believe that people are just obsessed with political correctness
I am blind to the fact that there are still problems faced by women
I have forgotten that feminism gave women rights such as the right to vote
I have no idea that feminism is an egalitarian movement that fights for everyone’s rights regardless of sex, gender, sexuality, race, religion, nationality, and ethnicity but mostly focuses on women’s rights.
I am more concerned about semantics rather than human rights
I can’t distinguish between real feminists and shitty people who call themselves feminists
I still believe in the false notion that feminism is about hating men
I actually don’t understand what feminism is

honestly this post is so liberal and bad
a woman saying she doesnt need feminism doesnt mean her life is “perfectly okay”… it’s more likely that she has internalized misogyny to the point where the misogynist microaggressions she encounters on a daily basis seem “perfectly okay” and normal to her. like, i cannot believe that people on tumblr so commonly assume that the only reason for a woman to reject feminism = SHE MUST BE ROLLING IN PRIVILEGE, when quite the opposite is often true.
"feminism is an egalitarian movement that fights for everyone’s rights regardless of gender," "real feminists don’t hate men"— all of these are statements intended to take the focus off of women / make feminism more palatable to men…. so thanks for that
"shitty people who call themselves feminists" yeah let’s not do this no true scotsman thing, as feminists we have to be accountable for the shit that goes down in our communities and we should be transparent about the fact that mainstream feminism has a history of racism homophobia etc etc.
"I actually don’t understand what feminism is"— may be true of the women making these statements but also liberal feminists like OP have a rather warped simplistic definition of feminism.

#heforshe is so great love the continuation of making women’s issues about men love how nothing can exist unless it’s through men love it

Every #heforshe post I’ve seen thus far has been extremely bad
