feminism — what is it??


FEMINISM
Let's define feminism shall we??
fem·i·nismˈfeməˌnizəm/noun
the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

I'ts as simple as that. People blow it way out of proportion, it's not a group of men hating women or a group of women trying to take over. We want to be equal to men, you may say that we are but we're not at all. Issues come up all the time which back up the idea that we NEED feminism. This is why I'm a feminist. 

Now some men are intimidated that women are speaking up, they feel like they have to be included in everything so that is where the phrase meninism was born. Basically meninism is defined as a group of men who support feminism and believe in feminist principles. Now I'll only state this one, MENINISM IS NOT A THING! It's just a made up thing that men have created to once again make feminism about themselves.

Sexist and misogynistic view are a conspiracy that feminist are trying to stop.

sex·ism
ˈsekˌsizəm/noun
  1. prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

mi·sog·y·ny
məˈsäjənē/noun
  1. dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.

This is all I'm going to get into today, If you have any questions, please leave them below and they will be in my next post!!!! I appreciate everyone who reads my post omg you guys make me so happy. 

*In no way am I trying to push my views on anyone, some people were just curious on this topic*
YES I AM A FEMINIST

  9. I like how you pointed out the menism idea. It was created by ignorant people who do not realize the privilege they have in the way society is set up.
