The big issue that I have with the feminist movement is the fact that it’s still not equal.
Feminists believe that women should be treated a certain way and put above men.
I don’t believe this is right. I believe that EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF SEX, RACE, SEXUAL PREFERENCE, CAR PREFERENCE, BOOK PREFERENCE, MOVIE PREFERENCE, ANYTHING should all be treated equally.
Yes, I understand that the feminist movement is in response to Men overpowering women in a lot of ways, workplaces, etc.
But I believe this isn’t right, because then people get it in their heads that men have been putting them down, so they should put down men.
But that makes you AS BAD AS WHAT YOU ARE FIGHTING AGAINST.
Do NOT fight for one gender, race, etc over another, fight for equality across the board. Fight for the fact that Scarlett Johansson and Anne Hathaway being asked questions about what underwear they wore in interviews is wrong, yes.
But so is Ellen Degeneres asking Andrew Garfield if he wore any underwear for his movie.
It is WRONG to sexualize people and things just because you can.
No matter what gender is asking what gender.
To ask someone a question like that is rude, creepy, and not ok.
And yes, Ellen was asking it in joking, but that doesn’t make it any more ok for her to ask questions not related to the Man’s acting skills, just as it isn’t right for interviewers to ask these women about their underwear.
The problem is across the board for everyone, not just one gender.
The problem is how we view these “stars” and what their place in our society means to the people.
You cannot just ask people a question like that off the street.
Just because they appeared in a movie makes it ok to treat them like this, male or female?
Of course not.
I’ve got to be honest on this one. I stopped reading after:
“Feminists believe that women should be treated a certain way and put above men.
I don’t believe this is right. I believe that EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF SEX, RACE, SEXUAL PREFERENCE, CAR PREFERENCE, BOOK PREFERENCE, MOVIE PREFERENCE, ANYTHING should all be treated equally.”
Congrats. You’re a feminist.
NEWSFLASH: Feminists don’t think women should be treated better than anybody else.
But you might try replacing “car preference, book preference, movie preference” with “gender identity, ability, and class.”
If you’re going to be a feminist, you might want to learn a little more about intersectionality!
