Feminism is a buzz word. No doubt about it. Most people hear it and think “what a bunch of lesbian, man hating radicals”.
So I am here today to clear things up. It’s important to me; I believe in gender equality and therefore I believe I’m a feminist, but I’m sick of being called feminazi whenever I bring it up.
First of all, here’s a video from Buzzfeed that I think helps explain this perfectly:
Feminism should not be a dirty word. A feminist is someone who wants gender equality.
Feminism should not be a dirty word. A feminist is someone who wants everyone to have the same opportunities.
Feminism should not be a dirty word. A feminist is someone who wants to make sure that there is no one on this earth who is struggling more then any other.
In case I haven’t make this clear enough; a feminist is someone who believes everyone is important, everyone is equal, everyone deserves the same opportunities.
They are not a bunch of lesbian, man hating radicals.
