I Am A Feminist Because I Believe In Equality

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,323 People

    I wonder is it a requirement to be female in

    order to be a feminist? If it is then I just support feminists and feminism because of my belief in equality. If it is not then I am a feminist for that reason.

    Thank You To All The Anti-feminists

    I would like to say thank you to the men (and some women) who are anti-feminists whose biased, anti-female (not just anti-feminist) stories and comments, which express their desire to keep women repressed, dominated and controlled, will ensure that feminism will remain alive and...

    I love being a feminist

    but there are two things I hate. 1. That people assume we don't fight to get male things noticed and give them equality in things as well. Like recognizing that men are raped as well as women. It's about equality for everyone. It's just feminism because females are the ones who...

    I believe that everyone should have equal rights

    and equal opportunities. Women are still judged all around the world and given less power. They are persecuted for the simplest of actions. Thats why I passively protest, no violence just honesty.

    Silly Anti-feminist Girls

    I have been in so many arguments with

    both men as women who every time they get asked why they are against feminism they respond with "because I support equality." And it enrages me to know that not enough people even understand that feminism begins with equality. The name being feminism and not maleism is because...

    Hypocrisy And Pompous, Self-righteous Arrogance

    "Consensual sex" is just sex.

    To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t...

    How Feminism Hurts Men

    Yesterday somebody on Facebook told me that feminism elevates women at the expense of men, that its agenda to validate women emasculates us guys. He was right. For men, the rise of feminism has relegated us to second-class status. Inequality and discrimination have become...

    It may seem trite but I am a feminist

    because women are people with the same standing as men. Women don't need to be "protected" any more than the rest of the public. And she certainly CAN make her own decisions regarding her health and body.

    All these people are getting it mixed up.

    There's feminists, then there's misandrists, people who don't like men and think women are superior. I am a feminist because I believe that men and women should have the same rights. People who don't believe that, please stop calling yourself a feminist, because you're not

    I Am A Human Too!

    Feminism is about equality. Its goal is to have the female as well as the male perspective given equal voices. If we live in a society that is dominated by either sex we do not get the full experience of human life.

    Not Exactly

    I am not a feminist. Nor do I believe in the concept of equality. I do very much believe in women's contributions to every aspect of life, as much as I believe in men's counter contributions. The concept of equality is flawed in two areas. First, men and women are not the...
