The ‘I Don’t Need Feminism’ Signs Show Just How Little People Understand About The Feminist Movement
So much so that young women have recently taken to various social media channels to declare: “I don’t need feminism.” The reasons are numerous, including:
“Because I believe in equality not entitlements and supremacy”
“Because I don’t think being a woman is a disadvantage”
“Because I respect men. I refuse to demonize them and blame them for my problems”
Maybe it’s the feminist in me, but I just don’t see any of these admonitions as something that would or should exclude a female from adopting the feminist title.
Third-wave feminism would likely applaud these individuals’s efforts in establishing their own personal beliefs, outside of any pre-determined system.
So we’ve coming to a point where being anti-feminist is actually feminist? My head hurts.
