There's being a feminist and then there's being a feminazi. If you don't think feminazis are real then it's because you haven't encountered one.

find a man if I'm a feminist.
1) Why would I date a man who didn't think I deserve the same rights to exist as him?
2) Finding a man has never been a top priority for me.
3) I also date women so there's that.
4) My boyfriend is also a feminist so your "logic" is outdated.

that I can't go to the beach alone at night, sit quietly, enjoying the moonlight shining down, the soft lapping of the waves against the rocks, the peace, without risking being assaulted...because (to quote a woman from a sitcom) I "brought a vagina with me".
that this means I believe women are superior and that any form of sex between a man and wife is rape because "it gives a man power over you" (seriously I know someone who said that). No, that is the feminazis you think of.
I believe that women and men should be treated equally...

"Equality means a loss to those in privilege, and that's okay" - Clementine Ford
when I post personal things about being sexually assaulted, people on here tell me I'm "whining" and to "be happy because I'm attractive enough to get that attention". I am absolutely disgusted and hurt. Being assaulted is not something to take lightly. It's not fun. It's not a...

As a man, I am sick to death of the boorish, sexist misogynistic culture that I see around me. I do not fit that model, and I would hate to be in any way associated with such behaviour. Inequality is inexplicable and inexcusable.
and men. Men suffer from sexism and gender expectations too. It's sad that my when my boyfriend wears flowers in his hair and just being himself he is harassed called supposed derogatory terms like "f*g" or "girly" because he is more feminine. It's sad that gay and girly are...

that feminism is a good and important cause As a 22 year old white female the worst I've faced is s*l*u*t shaming and being told that boys won't like me if I act a certain way but that doesn't mean that other women don't desperately need the feminism I'm fighting for.
