What triggers my anger is when that person who happens to be a female says: “I don’t need feminism. I don’t need to be liberated.” 

How about you tell that to:

That Moroccan girl who killed herself after being forcibly married to her rapist.  Moroccans demand change to penal code.

That 11-year-old Texan girl who got raped by 18 men while the New York Times said she “dressed older than her age.” The sloppy slanted child rape story.

Reyhaneh Jabari, an Iranian woman who was tortured in jail then hanged after killing the man who was going to rape her. Reyhaneh Jabbari

Nojood Al-Ali from Yemen who got divorced when she was 10. Nujood Ali

The 16-year-old girl from Ohio who got raped and filmed at a party by 2 boys, while CNN reporters talked about the bright futures of the rapists as athletes. ‘Promising Future’

The 8-year-old girl who was married to a man 5 times her age, and died on the day of her wedding because she suffered from bleeding and uterine rupture after intercourse. Yemeni child bride dies

The 25 Palestinian women who were killed by either their brother or father, in order to “protect their honor” only in 2013. Upsurge in honour killings

The 99% of Egyptian women and 90% of Yemeni women who have experienced sexual harassment Women of Yemen Sexual harassment in Egypt

I am a woman, a feminist and I am proud.   Too often these days feminism equates to “man-hating,” and this has to stop.  Feminism  has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, and anti-men, unattractive even.

A new mode of Feminism is required this being Equality.   People now are so obsessed with titles like I’m a feminist, I’m transgender, I’m cisnormative whatever the fUrk  I’m this I’m that. I understand that this is the information age and allot of things are considered ok now as opposed to back in the 50s or whatever but I feel like more change will come if humans just started being nice to other humans instead of trying to put each other in a box.  

Equality for all.   It’s simple.
