I don’t need feminism because….,
It’s a movement that, when I dared to disagree, has called
me fat, ugly, brainwashed, and stupid. Has said that I deserve
to be raped, even though I am a sexual
assault survivor. Has wished death on me,
and told me that the world would be better off without me.
Has threatened my children, harassed my mother
and even tried to get me fired.
It’s a movement that, when I share these terrible things, says, “we’re not all like that.”
“I’m sorry.” ‘It’s based on lies, and full of hypocrites that only care about furthering their own agenda.
I don’t need feminism because, I don’y want my sons to grow
up thinking they have to hate themselves, in order to respect
woman, and that making others that think differently is acceptable.
