1. Feminism makes women think all they need to do to succeed in life is “be a woman.” Today’s women think they deserve anything and everything just because they’re women. The result is a woman who is entitled when it comes to receiving good grades, jobs, or relationships. When she fails at gaining these, she blames both men and her feminine condition instead of herself.
2. Feminists are proud to be ugly. Go to the city and what do you see? Obese women that are either bald or have hair above their ears, loose clothing, and flip-flops. Feminism has taught women that it’s okay for them to look like they just rolled out of bed. Men are attracted to beauty and always will be. Next thing you know, women will appear in public wearing pajamas.
3. Feminists are stuck up, argumentative, and difficult. Feminism has taught women to “speak your mind,” another saying for “bitch about everything.” They will let nothing rest that they mildly disagree with, and would rather start World War III about some insignificant shit than simply changing the topic.
4. Feminists have trouble finding a partner that is equal or above to their level. Feminism has given women more money while taking away their biological need to have a family. They naturally find it difficult to find a man of lower means than themselves, so they simply remain single until they die, with nothing but cats to keep them company. Women are making more money, men have limited work options, threatening the very fabric of society. Great job, feminists.
5. Feminists overvalue alpha males. It is 2012, and the majority of men have been brainwashed by the feminist message, therefor making them the most pussified creatures in the world.
6. Feminists are going to be unfit mothers who don’t know how to take care of a household.Have you ever dated someone who knows how to cook a meal that doesn’t involve frozen ingredients? If she can’t cook for you, how is she going to cook for your child? She won’t. DCF/DSS will be feeding your child while updating statuses on Facebook about how women make less than men for the same work. Hopefully your income is high enough to hire a maid, because women, well feminists, nowadays have no skills to properly raise another human being.
When society eventually does collapse of feminism, I want to hear the excuses that feminists have offer for the decline, especially since they got absolutely everything they wanted. I hope I’m alive when it all comes crashing down.
I often seriously consider unfollowing the “feminism” tag when I encounter posts like this. Part of me really wanted to go back to my dashboard and forget I ever saw this post. But no. I won’t. I can’t. I’ve had enough. So here we go: 6 Reasons Why You Clearly Don’t Understand Feminism and Need to Stop Being Oppressive.
1. ’Feminism makes women think all they need to do to succeed in life is “be a woman.” ’ Oops! Actually, feminism is about believing that a person’s ability to “succeed in life” has nothing to do with gender identity. Currently, this is not so. Not only do cisgender women on average make somewhere around a quarter on the dollar less than cisgender men, but success in many male-dominated occupations still remains largely inaccessible to many women because of sexism. Also, feminists don’t tend to blame “the feminine condition” (which I take to mean “possessing female reproductive organs”) for anything, but rather society in general for considering “the feminine condition” subpar to “the male condition.”
2. “Feminists are proud to be ugly.” Many feminists are proud, that’s for sure. Let me ask you this, what do you possibly hope to gain by calling another person “ugly?” And isn’t it true that many people disagree on what is “ugly” and what is “beautiful?” Feminism perpetuates the idea that every body is beautiful, and that people all of all genders should be proud of themselves and their bodies. I mean, doesn’t that sound a lot better for everybody? You say that it has “taught women that it’s okay to look like they just rolled out of bed,” but what would be accurate is that it has taught women that it’s okay to look however they damn please. Why is the business of others, of total strangers, to judge another person based on their looks? Here’s the thing: it’s not. Which means that it’s not your business if a woman is obese. It’s not your business if she has short hair, or long hair, or purple hair. It’s not your business if she has hair on her legs or her armpits or pubic area. Or if she is wearing a short skirt, or pajamas. It’s not your business.
You say men are attracted to beauty and always will be? First of all, ask most feminists, and they’d tell you that how they look has nothing to do with dressing for a man, or for anyone else but themselves. Also, try to remember that plenty of women aren’t interested in men, and you shouldn’t exclude them that way (Feminism is about that, too). Secondly, it’s a pretty bleak outlook on people in general to say that we are only attracted to beauty. Could you fall in love with someone based solely on their looks? Some people can, I suppose, but most of us need to connect with a person on a more emotional or intellectual level, too. And finally: beauty is subjective. Even if you are dressing to appeal to another person, different looks appeal to different people.
3. “Feminists are stuck up, argumentative, and difficult.” We are only “argumentative” when others are ignorant and oppressive. And we are only “difficult” when it is difficult to prove us wrong, difficult (or impossible) to stop us. But maybe you mean that women shouldn’t be argumentative? That women should be more “lady like” or “docile?” See, another part of feminism is saying to hell with those gender-restrictive, constructed stereotypes. If a male-identifying person can assert his opinion or stand up for himself and be called “strong,” why is it that when a woman does the same thing, she is “overbearing” or “a bitch?”
4. “Feminists have trouble finding a partner that is equal or above to their level.” Um, what? This point made the least amount of sense to me. “Feminism has given women more money while taking away their biological need to have a family?” Sorry, but what? It’s true that feminism has helped in shrinking the wage gap between “men” and “women” (not that those are the only two genders), but not nearly to the point where women make more than men, or even close to equal. And women don’t have a “biological need” to get married and have children. Some women don’t even have the biological capability to have children, and someone don’t have a uterus or ovaries or a vagina. By saying that women “need” to have children, you are reducing a woman’s worth to her baby-making abilities. Do you find sterile women useless? What about menopausal women? No? Why don’t you stop judging the lifestyles of others? As in, why do you give a fuck if women have a partner or not? Seriously, why do you care? Some women don’t want partners, and some women (and many feminists) have no problem finding a partner who is compatible to them and their beliefs. You happen to be looking at one.
As for the “threatening the fabric of society” thing, give me a break. Did you just imply that every job taken by a woman is a job lost by a man? Did you just imply that women have no place in the workforce and therefore suggest that the only “place” for a woman is to stay home and take care of children?
5. “Feminists overvalue alpha males.” Oops, wait. This is the one that made the least amount of sense. “The majority of men have been brainwashed by the feminist message?” Where did you get that notion, because the majority of the men (and almost as many women) I interact seem to think that feminism is either a joke or a useless, outdated movement. And uh, using words like “pussy” to mean “weak” is just plain sexist, because it implies that identifying as a woman or having female anatomy makes you a lesser person. Feminism is ruining the world, huh? Nope, looks like it’s actually internalized misogyny.
6. “Feminists are going to be unfit mothers who don’t know how to take care of a household.” Well, it looks like you were actually implying that the only “place” for a woman is to stay home and take care of children! Oh, and feminism is what’s holding women back? OKAY.
But beyond what I already said in #4, there’s still a lot wrong with this part. “If she can’t cook for you, how is she going to cook for your child?” Why is she expected to cook for you? Why is she expected to be the sole caretaker for a child that she and her partner are equally responsible for? Why are you once again assuming that a woman’s role is always caretaker? Sorry, but fuck that.
So to conclude, clearly feminism isn’t what’s “destroying women or society.” So what is? Misogyny. Sexism. Gender-restrictive stereotypes. Lack of choice when it comes to a woman’s body and choices. Oh, and people like you, who enforce all of those things.
