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

I do have a big problem with this one:
I still believe in the false notion that feminism is about hating men
Why is it always, always, ALWAYS about reassuring men that women don’t hate them?  Men hate women freely.  I don’t give a shit if men think I hate them, because if a man cares more about whether or not women hate him than the fact that he benefits from a system that is built of the subjugation and oppression of women, he’s a shitty person, anyway.
Also this one:
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.
No, no, and NO.  Feminism is NOT egalitarian, or it shouldn’t be.  The goals of Feminism will benefit everyone, but first and foremost Feminism is about LIBERATING FEMALES FROM PATRIARCHY AND MALE OPPRESSION.  Stop taking something that is supposed to be for WOMEN and trying to make it about everyone else.  That just feeds into the sexist gender role that says that women are caretakers.

radicalfeminisms:

this is a daily reminder to support women:

  • support women while having critical conversations
  • support women who have critical conversations
  • support women who agree with you
  • support women who disagree with you
  • support women who are vulnerable in some ways
  • support women who are strong in others
  • support women who have never had such care
  • support women who just need a little bit of encouragement
  • support women, always
