I see these people getting data to prove why feminism isn’t needed, (which just shows it’s needed. I mean, “data” to fight against what is real and concrete for those who experience sexism first-hand?
Are you kidding me, my dear “Theory-ticals”?).
I once explained to one man how feminism is different from what extremists do. I told him that even if in his environment the women feel safer (and doesn’t have to deal with sexism), it doesn’t all the world-population have it that way too. You know what he said? He said he’d stick to his own opinions no matter what I said.
Most of the problems with such debaters is their pointing to something that isn’t feminism and then calling it “feminism” for themselves.They point to extremists to support their points. And I am here like, “So….no one cares is what you’re saying?”.Most feminist women experienced first-hand of the problems of sexism in society.
It’s just life I have to accept: some people will work their butt off to prove how worthless your feelings towards sexism are. And I am here, just wondering, “I am not dumb enough to say men can’t have problems. Now what gives you the right to be blind to my friggin’ problems?” Really.
“I believe in equality but I am not a feminist”. Huh? Guess what? Despite how it can mean women trying to get equal rights as men in society, it WILL be twisted by other people (as they point their “I-know-your-rights-better-than-you-know-themselves”-fingers at extremists, like there aren’t extremists in every group) to avoid the issue altogether.
Why did you back away from my stance on the argument? I thought to the man who told me he’d stick to his ideas of feminism. No matter what I said.
