#feminist #feminism #women

I’m always amused when women, especially white, cis, straight women, take on this “well, I don’t see how Feminism benefits ME, so fuck it!” mentality. 
Because, like, ok, perhaps you have enough privileges that the impact of systematic gender inequality is pretty mitigated for you. Sure. 
But, like, do you not give a shit about your sisters? About your sisters of color, and LGBTQIAP+ sisters, and disabled sisters? About your sisters who ARE targets of violence, who are suffering? 
Because lists like this only betray 2 things, a) That the person who wrote it does not understand the sociological concepts and theories that lay the foundation for much of feminist theory and b) that they don’t give a shit about anyone less fortunate than themselves in regards to marginalization and oppression. 

OP is on some ignorant shit.

how to completely misunderstand and misrepresent feminism, while showing arrogance, ignorance, and complete disdain for those who are suffering: a photo post by someone with no concept of oppression
Also, if you think the patriarchy doesn’t affect you, and that you aren’t a target for violence, be it general or sexual, you might want to sit down, because I have some seriously bad news for you

Have you ever experienced any of the following?
Been sexually touched against your will by a stranger
Had to pretend to know a woman to protect her
Discussed plans of escape when going out with friends
Had to lie to a man because he wouldn’t accept your “No”
Been called sexually or demeaning things by people you didn’t know
Been afraid to go home alone
Been afraid to accept a ride from someone
Had to hold your keys in your fist while walking anywhere
Been given a weapon as a gift even though you do not have a hobby that includes weapons
Been afraid to leave your significant other because they might hurt or kill you
Been afraid to travel on vacation alone
Chosen clothing based on avoiding sexual harassment instead of your own personal preferences
Been told that you are less funny, respectable, or capable because of your gender
If you haven’t, congrats to you. But millions of women all over the world experience all of these every single minute. And there are worse things happening to women that I didn’t even list.How dare you erase their experiences just to appear better in the eyes of your male friends.

This is what I was talking about!!!!!
