Hey my Loves 💜,
How are you today? I’m coming to you with a new comic today and I have a little speech attached to it:
All across the internet I read misconceptions about feminism and I just needed to speak up about it. I read that feminists are people (mostly women) who advocate for more power and more opportunities than men, I hear that feminists are people (mostly women) who even HATE men. I hear and read the most obnoxious things coming from a hateful place as well. Often time I hear that we want to take over the world and want to ruin men.
Let me clear the air here.
The actual meaning of the word “feminism” according to the Cambridge Dictionary is: “the belief that women SHOULD BE ALLOWED the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities intended to achieve this state.”
NOT ONE LINE suggests that women are advocating to take over men’s power, opportunities and rights. As women, we advocate for equal rights so we can ALSO have a chance at the amount of money men earn, the jobs that only men are assigned to, the rights that women have no shot at. That doesn’t mean that your job is in danger, and if you feel threatened, then maybe you should work more like a women cause THERE SHOULD BE NO THREAT AT ALL if your work was good to begin with!
If you are not FOR equal rights at all, then where is your humanity in this? What kind of future are we continuing? Would you want to raise your daughter without less of a chance than the men she takes the same classes with? I don’t think so.
This is about equal rights and opportunities. Nothing else. Whether your a man or a woman, I think we can all agree that in this day and age, we should all be feminists, right? 💜
Thank you for listening to my TED talk haha 💜💜💜
LOVE YOU GUYSSS 💜💜💜💜
PS: this texts goes on the world wide web and is not targeted to you cause I think we all know that when you’re here, you’re pretty much pro equality already 💜💜
