I was on Facebook when a guy posted an article called ‘50 things women should realise about men’ and captioned the post ‘This.’ The post suggests that women are conditionally loved based upon appearance, require permission for a haircut and should provide sexual favours on demand. After reading the article I proceeded to read the comments, a few girls stuck up for themselves… briefly. They were soon told to shut up with their feminist nonsense and take a chill pill by both genders. The girls were quickly offended by the term ‘feminism’ and retracted previous comments.
I just want everyone to know it is okay to want equality and it’s okay to want the same standard of respect. People should not be ‘accused’ of feminism but it should be a term to be proud of. You don’t have to provide sexual favours because you watched a film and it’s not your fault if you get cheated on. I don’t want a young generation being brought up on this nonsense.
