This. This. This.
I loathe the stereotype that being feminist means you hate men, because most feminists don’t, they hate the patriarchy and the two are not the same thing. It’s entirely possible to hate and want to change the system without hating the people who benefit most from it.
things girls are made to feel ashamed of -
- having periods
- choosing what they want to wear on their body
- wanting to/not wanting to have sex
- putting boys in the ‘friendzone’
- standing up against misogyny
- ruining a boy’s life by telling the police that he raped her
- having hair on their body
- not appreciating catcalls
- not appreciating chivalry
- having control over their own fucking body
you forgot the biggest one:
* being a girl
the reason I’ve stopped saying “most men/some white people/many straight people do X oppressive activity” is because if you’re a member of those groups, I want you to sit there and think, “do I do X? am I a part of that? am I an active part of the problem?”
if I say that only most or some people in those groups participates in X, that’s letting you off the hook! that means that you’re not asked to think about your actions and choices!
and besides, even if you yourself aren’t doing X, chances are you know at least five people who do. and I want you to think about them too.
That’s the whole point.
