This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.


I guess they don’t want people spreading awareness of this issue. Look, she even has the tape over her fucking mouth. That’s right, let’s all just keep quiet, don’t talk about breast cancer, just zippy the mouthy and move on.For the record, nobody is “sexualizing breast cancer”, holy living fuck. All they’re doing is adding a bit of fun to promoting awareness, getting a message on a t-shirt that’s a little more memorable than “please support breast cancer research”. I had no idea that making a cause MORE MEMORABLE for passers by was a bad thing.I’ve seen some stupid shit said in the name of feminism, but this honestly takes the cake. I am absolutely, 100% floored. Wow.

It’s amazing. The blog womenagainstfeminism got some online criticism from news sources who reported on them and, as usual, started screaming “BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT FEMINISM IS. FEMINISM IS EQUALITY. WE JUST WANT EQUALITY. THAT’S ALL WE WANT. ALL YOUR CRITICISMS ABOUT OUR MOVEMENT ARE NOT FEMINISM.” But my faith in humanity has been restored tenfold once the results started to show. What happened? Dozens upon dozens of women have been submitting their own pictures to womenagainstfeminism, and more are coming every day. This is but a sampling of it.

I don’t need feminism because it has caused even educated, seasoned journalists to shrivel up and hide behind a dictionary when confronted with the hypocrisy and hatred of their corrupt social movement.

Feminism is the social, political and economic equality of ALL sexes. This is ridiculous. Feminism is not about belittling men or making them out to be our “enemies”. A true feminist does not belittle men, they do not hate men, and they do not put women on a pedestal or make men out to be monsters. Men and women are equal and that is what feminism portrays. Do what you want with your life but DO NOT make feminism out to be a hateful act upon any gender. It is about equality, period.

You have modem feminism to blame for straying from the path of what the first wave of feminists built. Also what you are describing is egalitarianism, not feminism. Feminism is strictly by definition a women’s rights movement, not an all encompassing human rights movement which I said before is egalitarianism.

Call it what you want. Yes, it does lean toward women’s rights but the whole point of it is that all humans are equal.
I don’t understand what “modern feminism” is supposed to mean or why it is being used to downgrade feminism but if a person agrees that all are equal and deserve equal social, political and economical rights, that is feminism.

Original poster here. I honestly don’t understand what people like you don’t get. We have ten women here denouncing feminism for the various faults that the modern feminist movement has, and all you do is sit there and repeat over and over “IT’S ABOUT EQUALITY, THAT’S IT, IF YOU BELIEVE WE’RE EQUAL THAT’S FEMINISM, PERIOD.”

Where do you think girls like the ones in this photoset are getting their ideas? From thin air? Making them up? No. Browse the feminism tag. Google image search some of the “I need feminism because” gems. Drink in all the spoiled, self-entitled man hating. I’ve gotten more than one anon noting me, claiming they hope my girlfriend gets raped “so I understand why we need feminism.” THAT is the modern feminism movement. It’s spoiled, selfish, middle-class women, mostly millennials, who were born into complete equality, and who wouldn’t know real oppression if it threw acid in their faces in the name of Allah. Women who were born into complete, total, and absolute equal rights. These self-proclaimed feminists, do they speak out against women in the middle east being stoned to death for the crime of being gang raped? God no. They prefer to spout repeatedly disproven wage gap myths, whine that they need feminism because Wonder Woman wears legless leotard instead of cargo pants, and, well…

THAT is “modern feminism”, and THAT’S what we oppose. Feminism of the past was about getting women social and legal equal rights. I support that. MODERN feminism is about demanding affirmative action in the military, causing physical requirements to be lowered. I support equal rights, and I will never support shit like that. And that’s why people like the ten women in this photoset oppose feminism.

Lol ok. Have fun believing that cause you’re fucking mentally corrupt.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you ever want to make a feminist stop bothering you, write more than one paragraph as a response. They’ll just call you a generic insult and run.

Sad how predictable it is. I swear, I almost thought I’d get a rational debate out of this one.

I don't want the word to lose its meaning because of the history it represents. I'm not going to explain further because I know you know what I mean. I respect your ideals but not your animosity towards feminism, which I don't get.

If you want to understand my animosity towards what feminism has become, the solution is simple. Search the feminism tag. Google image search “I need feminism because”. Look at all the self entitled bullshit that society managed to vomit onto the internet. Or, if you want to cut to the chase, here’s some.

Oh yes.

Feminism so awesome.

Feminism is totally for equality.

It is a peace movement.

I hate feminism because of what it has become, and what it has become is something you can’t honestly deny. Feminism used to be about getting women the right to vote, getting women rights and freedoms that men had, yet they socially and legally lacked. Today, feminism is about whining about song lyrics, or videogames, or flaunting repeatedly disproven “77 cents on the dollar” claims, or demanding free birth control (for women only, of course), and that’s just the tame stuff.

You say that’s not what feminism is supposed to be? I agree. But that’s what it is today. You waste your time trying to fight against the tide of spoiled, self-entitled, man-hating harpies who think the world should be handed to them on a silver vibrator. Feminism is dead. Equal rights activism has taken its place. Save yourself a lot of headaches and just accept it.

happybirthdaycharlie asked:

That makes sense -- if feminism truly was dead. The word feminism itself never changed. It was never meant to be something bad like that. People who thought that they were being feminists just gave the world the wrong idea about it. And that's what we're trying to change. Saying that feminism should be abolished entirely because of its misrepresentation would be like saying Christianity should be disregarded because of how Westboro church goers and the likes make it look.

Some words are just beyond repair. The swastika is supposed to mean good luck. Fag is supposed to mean a bundle of sticks. At a certain point, you need to accept the fact that a word has been corrupted beyond repair, and if you want to convey the meaning that word USED to give, you need to pick another one.

For every feminist you hear talking about fighting for the right of women in Saudi Arabia to drive, you get ten “feminists” saying we should abolish Father’s Day because men don’t deserve it. For every feminist you hear talking about how 40% of domestic violence victims are men and we shouldn’t be ignoring that, you get ten “feminists” screaming WONDER WOMAN STILL HAS BIG BOOBS OMG PATRIARCHY #YESALLMEN.

In all honesty, what is your motivation for so desperately clinging to a word? Because that’s all this discussion between you and I seems to be about. We both support equal rights, we both oppose social and legal inequality between genders and everything else. But where I am happy to just call myself an equal rights supporter and leave “feminism” to the shrieking harpies of tumblr, you desperately want to reclaim the word and call yourself a feminist. Why? The word is gone. Devote your effort to fighting for its ideals, not fighting for it.
