I would love to meet a man hating feminist. Because i still haven’t(or at least i believe i haven’t).
With this, i’mma state why i am a feminist and why i believe everyone should be a feminist.
- I have a twin brother that, due to clear traditional values of “boys will be boys” was allowed to do whatever when we were teens and i wasn’t. I don’t want to bring up my kids in such a culture. People are responsible or not, period(and believe me, i had alot to prove around untill i was allowed to do whatever- including organizing for and living abroad for 5 months by my own means)
-People still believe feminism is misandry. Don’t get me wrong- there are some fuckers i’b brick on the face walking around the Earth, BUT i love my brother, and my dad, and my cousins, and my comic buddies (Carlokun, Dietl, F, the diegues brothers), my monitor coworkers that are really cool and clever and stuff, and well, any male character that comes to me without commenting rudely on cleavage, legs(i got muscular legs and i love short dresses…cuz well, i love my legs and, quite narcisistically, i like to check them out) or any other bits. I AM a sexual being, and tho i get i’m perceived like that, you are not allowed to touch, come near or make less nice remarks without me allowing it because i’m a sexual being that chose to be so for my sake, not yours (it’s like the thing for tattoos and touching them or commenting them. They’re there and people can see them, but having them is not a freakshow carnie for people to point and touch …)
Ok, that was 2 points in one, yay
-As a women in the art world, i know that if i work in the female perspective, i’ll be coined as feminist, if i don’t, i probably will be some other lame-o out there. Women artists are, as much as african descendant artists, kinda pushed into working inside their spheres.
Here i quote Marina Abramovic “i don’t make feminist art, I just make art as a woman,because i am a woman”. If i want to do something deemed manly, SO BE IT!!!
-because girls and boys are still taught gender stereotyping (and roles, whatever that is nowadays)- being girly is just being girly, and being a tomboy is just that too. politeness and being civil is good to everyone, and girls can be taught to be ruff as much as boys to be gentle…as much as girls can be incentivated into STEM and boys into fashion design without being seen as weird or “pansy”.
- i don’t think all men are rapists, and that there is a right way to be a male. But i can tell you that we girls are taught to be afraid of a myriad of things that “men” might do, and boys…well…aren’t afraid of us. As a girl that once got assaulted and had to run my ass off from a couple of guys because i slapped one after he groped me (and a very annoying conversation during a full bus trip because they wouldn’t leave me alone before event escalated), i think such laxism in one gender’s perception is…needless.
Can’t speack of the patriarchy bit cuz i still don’t get it that well (and because i think in Europe our issues with it are slightly different)
And because- i’m all honesty, i just wanna be seen as a person with a degree and that speaks a relevant number of languages and that does not easily forget random information- thus my nickname Wikipedia, and not as a bunch of body parts which u can come say pretty things.
