when you say “feminism is about equality” men hear “that means i should have as much say-so and power in the feminist movement as women do”
and thats why i say feminists who constantly have to remind everyone that “we’re for equality!!!” are kindergarden feminists
kindergarden feminists are concerned with making sure men still like them and keeping men happy. you can be a feminist and still like men of course, going through life hating men (or anything really) isn’t healthy.
but you cannot solve anything by sugar-coating feminism just so men can feel comfortable with it
feminism is uncomfortable. feminism takes the rose colored glasses from mens eyes and throws it against the wall. feminism pops men’s bubble of security and comfort. feminism makes men take responsibility. feminism is a rude awakening.
do not sugar coat your feminism
feminism does not cater towards men
feminism is about dismantling the oppressive systems men have put in place and continue to uphold
men can get involved in the movement
but it is not. about. them.
Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
