AM I A FEMINIST?

AM I A FEMINIST?

Am I a feminist?

This is a question that’s been bothering me for a while because whilst I kind of consider myself to be one, others may not. And yes I realise this is from Urban Dictionary.

Also I just wanted to let you know that this is one of those posts where I rant and rant and ramble on til my brain feels like it’ll explode.

What Is Feminism To Me?

Feminism is about girls women empowering one another! It’s about having equal rights, and being respected. It’s about society getting over the unrealistic expectations they set for women. It’s about stopping slut-shaming and gender-based violence, it’s about people getting the hell over all the stupid things they’ve been brainwashing females with for the past however many years.

I am so sick of women and young feeling that they need to fulfil this fantasy of the perfect woman. It’s DISGUSTING. Plain, and simple, putting it out there, it’s bloody disgusting. The idea that women are all supposed to fit into this mould of the perfect woman when each and every single one is us is different and gorgeous for being so.

I just wanna live in a world(and I realise how sadly unrealistic this sounds) where women and men have equal rights.

A world in which women aren’t treated like objects, and gender based violence isn’t a thing, a world where nobody gives a damn how on fleek your eyebrows and people care more about empowering one another.

If being a feminist is about supporting the later, then I guess I am. I have probably shared the quote below a million times but it is one of my absolute FAVES and I feel like its speaks volumes about the person I’m trying to be.

In 2018 I hope this becomes more of a reality:

Teach girls to worry less about fitting into glass slippers and more about shattering glass ceilings

They eat too much food, they shed to much fur and they spent 87% of their time sleeping.

Nice house, ugly car. For definite.

Left alone. (Unless my friends agree to bring cake.)
