There is a proper definition of the word feminism and so far I hardly ever see it played out. A typical modern day feminist is unsure of the bases for feminism and is probably following the crowd shrieking ‘’equal rights’.
For clarification feminism is a collection of ideologies aimed at establishing and defending equal political, economic and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment. Hence a feminist is an advocate for the rights and equality of women. If you ask me, some people have gotten it twisted. Let’s take a drive down my perspective road. Close the door of your mind to any other previous opinion as we drive, put on your seat belt just in case I hit the brakes and my opinions have you hitting the dashboard in protest.
Engine starts and the very first bump is the modern day feminist belief of a lot of people that women rights are more important than men’s rights, that women are absolutely equal to men in all ways and men are bad, evil or out to harm women. Hit the brakes!
I think demanding equality yet still expecting chivalry is wrong. You can have one or the other. Personally i think feminism doesn’t quite preach equality but highlight the differences between men and women. I also want to Screech on the fact that I’ve never felt oppressed as a woman on the contrary I’ve gotten many perks for being female. I don’t want to be treated like a man but like a lady. Now lets reverse and I’ll tell you that the very foundation of the idea feminism is that a woman is a victim which personally i don’t think is mentally healthy.
Hence, my reservations for feminism. The modern day feminist gives off the impression that she is insecure, although unknown to her. She clearly doesn’t quite get that feminism in it’s self knee-deep political. It’s not some social movement to rant about who pays for dates or whose opinions should be given more value. The proper idea behind feminism is deeper than that. Please I employ you to look up what you say you stand for and properly understand the pillar ideas around feminism. If you still believe that feminism is about equal rights, I beg you please look up the word egalitarianism and clarify your conflict.
I constantly wonder what do feminist fight for? what magical freedoms do you not already posses? Quite honestly I believe the answer is none. What more do you seek oh dear modern feminist? Do you want all companies to have at least 50% female employees which I wonder what will happen when 20% go on maternity leave and the company output is trembling to its knees.
There are differences in the sexes and no matter how loud you scream, that’s a fact. The male and the female person are great at different things and this has been proven scientifically in experiments and observations.
By now modern feminist you should be getting agitated but you can choose to stop the drive or continue…if you dare.
