This is my exact argument. Whether it's rape, sexism, racism, etc. I don't care if you "don't really think that," you're still making a joke that is "funny" because someone DOES think it's funny and true.

“As a society, we encourage girls and women to be emotionally accessible, and in touch with their feelings; we say that it’s an innately feminine trait. We say it, that is, until they have feelings that make us uncomfortable, at which point we recast them as melodramatic harpies, shrieking banshees, and basket cases.” - Tori Amos :.

Society's perspective on emotionalness associated with femininity

Holy crap this is so true!

Moral of the story: wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.

Dont move when men walk towards her. So far she's collided with 28 men. I wonder how many apoligized.

Male entitlement in public spaces -- "Manslamming".

I just walk on the right side of the path or whatever but don't move out of the way and I haven't collided with any men.maybe the guys in my city are just more polite?

Women should be respected regardless of their relation to you. Because women are people. Feminist quotes, feminism, respect, equal rights, women's rights
What others are saying

Or only respect women who are pretty.

As a woman, if a female is utterly nothing to respect, if she does nothing to have respect- you don't have to respect her or anyone else. Respect is earned. I know that word is trying to be outlawed in this day and age, but grow up.

This is why I dislike that "Daughters" song by John Mayer. Everyone says it's so feminist, but all I hear is a guy who values women because they turn into mothers, not because they have intrinsic worth.

Fellow human beings capable of wondrous things ❤❤❤ There's something wrong when you you can only respect a woman because you are reminded that she might be important to someone who might be male, and you respect him more than her.

What others are saying

feminism is not a threat

Feminism is necessary because it tries to counteract the horrific violations perpetuated against women when they are marginalized

This could be said for any marginalized group

I see no lie here.

Yeah...why are Republican conservative men so against abortions?? IT'S NOT FOR THEM AND IS NOT FOR THEIR BODIES>

Recent studies reveal that of abortions are performed on people who do not wish to be pregnant and of abortions are performed on conservative republican men.

Male as the default. Now substitute black writers (professor accused of bias? Yep!) and white writers (happens all the time). White is the default.

A woman's body is not dangerous, it does not cause men to do stupid things. If men do stupid things it is THEIR CHOICE.

I really love this. it calls out the myths about feminism, and makes sure to include all women- and their ability to choose.

it calls out the myths about feminism, and makes sure to include all women- and their ability to choose. I hate to hear someone say they're not a feminist because they aren't man haters. Being a feminist doesn't mean you hate men.

Yes, you are a feminist! "If you believe in gender equality, you are a feminist.  Feminism is the logical notion that women are people. Feminists do not wish to have power over man, but rather to have power over themselves.  You don't have to be female to be a feminist"

Reminding others (and ourselves) that feminism is not the dirty word. I am a feminist and I'm proud of that.

on actual nice guys

If you were a nice guy, you would A) actually listen to women when they tell you about their experiences, B) not invalidate those experiences with "not all men!", C) recognize the problem + work towards a solution rather than ignoring it

Oh yes

I have always believed in women having equality. Somehow I never knew the word describing it was feminism. The word feminism is really vastly misunderstood!

Because it is important for the status quo that women desirous of equal rights be made to look unattractive, and indeed crazy, courtesy of the right-wing owned media, so that more women don't join the movement and upset the apple cart.

When idiots try to shame you for using the term feminist rather than equalist or some other lame shit ✋
