Many people are put-off by the word feminism simply because they believe it means something it doesn’t.
Women want to be treated superior to men.
Most female feminists do not want to be treated better than men. They simply want to be treated equal to men.
Women want to be paid equal money for doing less work than a man.
Again, most female feminists want equal pay for equal work. If a man and a woman have the same job and do the same work they should get the same pay check.
Feminists only care about female rape victims.
Most feminists believe that if someone rapes someone else, it is wrong and they should be put in jail. The genders do not matter.
Feminists think women should dress masculine and don’t shave their legs.
Most feminists believe anyone should wear whatever they are comfortable with. If you feel good in a dress, wear it. If you like jeans and a t-shirt, that’s cool too. No matter your gender.
Feminists are all gay and hate men.
Nope. There are lots of straight feminists as well as men feminists.
The definition of feminism is equality of the sexes. That’s all we want. If you have any questions about any of these statements or have anything to add feel free to message me!
