I Reject the feminist label
Latest supporter submission:
I am not a feminist even though I know that not all feminists are man-haters, don’t care about men’s rights, or believe in female superiority
Because I do not want to be a part of a group that includes too many people who do believe any of the above.
I am not a feminist even though I know that some dictionaries define feminism simply as “equality”
Because I do not want to be a part of a movement where too many of their actions do not match this definition.
I am not a feminist even though I know that some feminist movements have fought for gender equity and helped give women the same rights as men
Because I do not want to be a part of the current movement that includes unjust ideas like “rape culture.”
I Reject the feminist label even though I agree with some things the feminist movement stands for
Because I disagree with enough of the beliefs and actions of the current feminist movement, such that applying the label to myself would give people the wrong impression of what I support and believe in.
I reject the current feminist movement even if it fights for equity, tries to stop sexism, and provide opportunities to those that have none
Because it is not the only way or the best way to achieve these goals
I reject the feminist label even though I am a middle-aged, educated, intelligent woman
Because being labelled a feminist would misrepresent who I really am.
