The definition of feminism as it stands above is right and true, but somewhere it has become blurred. Women calling themselves ‘Feminists’ whilst in actual fact behaving like the female version of a chauvinist just gives feminism a bad name.
This type of New Age Feminism sucks just as much as Chauvinism. We should come up with a more fitting name/title than a Feminist. Alright I am obviously aiming at the fanatics. The ones who seem to try to woman themselves down and man themselves up. Is it to make a point? I read an article a while ago claiming that woman should stand their ground and not use tampons. Something about it taking away our freedom to be free, what a load of crap, it was such a long ridiculous article I think I was reading it because I was too shocked to stop. Quite flabbergasted. Stop shaving your legs and armpits ladies!! Never mind the comment about the nether regions. Please I hate having hairy legs and armpits – stinky.
I am all for woman power, I love being a woman. I do believe that we should be given the same opportunities as men.
I also believe that we deserve to be treated as women, and behave like women. I would far rather my husband softly take my hand to guide me in the direction he would like to go than to smack me on the back and say ‘hey, this way.’
Women and men were made differently for a reason, not too sure why that is but it just is, and it works. I am more of a raggedy Anne, I don’t wear make-up every day and I mostly dress for comfort. When I do get dressed up and dolled up I do it as much for me as for my Husband. What is wrong with that? Why is it bringing woman down by doing stuff to make the man in your life happy? Sure my husband is the bread winner in the family, but believe me he would be more than thrilled if it were me instead, takes the pressure off.
I don’t understand why we must have the battle of the sexes, yes, and very naïve. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all just respect each other for what we are? Push each other to succeed at our strengths and be accepting of our weaknesses.
I think both ‘feminists’ and chauvinists are insecure in who they are so they need to beat down the other sex to prove that they are worth something, maybe even intimidated. So ‘feminist’, How about embrace being a woman, successful, beautiful and simply wonderful whilst at the same time not emasculating men. As for chauvinists, um… I have nothing. Just Stop It!
