Everyone who reblogs this will get the title of a book to read based on their bio/posts.
Everyone. I mean it.
THIS IS THE BEST POST
I HAVE EVER SEEN
they really do mean everyone
UPDATE: Yup I got the thing
Oh, wait. Wait, wait, wait. Hold the fuck up.
Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME with this whole “I Don’t Need Feminism” thing, Tumblr?
Being a “man-hater” and erring on the side of gender parity are two different things.
Once something hits goddamn Buzzfeed, it has obviously circulated enough to have made a splash. And the fact that this splash focuses on the lack of need to: 1) “demonize men”; 2) play up a “victim complex”; 3) or need feminism like a “fish needs a bicycle” - a, let’s face it, poorly constructed simile at best - makes me weep violent anger tears.
"[You] don’t need feminism because [you] are capable of critical thinking and [you] do not need other women representing [you]"?
HA HA HA. HAHAHAHAHHAHA oh fucking really. Because [you] obviously see the big picture. Because [you] inherently understand the actual fucking problem that owning a body prominent of estrogen assures throughout a great part of the world. Because [you] fucking easily goddamn comprehend that, in most places, [your] set of genitalia qualifies [you] as modern-day chattel. That’s the entire argument, is it? That women unabashedly bash (ha-ha!) on other women? We hate on each other because of insecure bullshit I assume, yes?
Wellllllp, well done [you]. [Your] selfless act of awareness has changed everyone’s mind. Now the word “victim” is totally devoid of its value, and oppressed individuals will continue to be voiceless because of lexical pollution. But, hey, don’t worry too much: being victimized will continue to have a negative, overly-dramatic connotation - because we as girls pretty much ask for that complex, don’t we? With our soft skin, long hair, short skirts… You know, our temptress ways. Shit! We should all just apologize upfront. Oh, and, pay is pretty much equal. Also, men and women continue to have uniform parts in continuing the human species, one growing a human and the other…. Men don’t take advantage of women “because they were clearly asking for it” by wearing what they were prescribed to wear in the name of approachability. And [you] did not make the entire concept of gender (in)equality in this day and age about [yourself]. Well done, [you].
