Yes, I am a feminist. You’re a full blown asshole if you’re not.
A lot of people will hear the word ‘feminist’ and automatically think that women want to have greater power than men. This is the complete opposite of what we want. We want equality. Every single person should be treated with the same respect, despite gender.
I want females and males to be treated the SAME. Nobody should have greater power than the other.
I think it’s disgusting that women get treated differently to men. I also think it’s disgusting that men get treated differently to women.
For example, there is a ‘comedy’ that has been released called ‘Hello, My Name Is Doris’, which follows an older lady, and her love for her younger colleague. Now, why is it that if it was an older man who is falling in love with a younger women, there would be outrage?
Why is it that a women call fall in love with someone who’s 20+ years her junior, and is branded as ‘lucky’ and ‘a women who knows what she wants in life’, but if a man did it, he would be classed a ‘paedophile’ and ‘disgusting’?
Another example is when Madonna shoved her tongue down Drake’s throat whilst performing at Coachella.
At the time, Madonna was 56, whilst Drake was 28.
People laughed and applauded Madonna, saying she did nothing wrong.
Does this look like someone who wanted to be forcefully kissed?
After the performance, she did get some rightful backlash. She then went to Instagram to stand up for herself. Really Madonna? You’re trying to say that this is okay?!
Lets say that man who is 56, grabbed a female who is 28, and started to kiss her, and the women made the same face as Drake did? The media would be going INSANE with fury, and I’m pretty sure the police would be involved.
‘Sexual assault is a sexual act in which a person is coerced or physically forced to engage against their will, or non-consensual sexual touching of a person.’
Why don’t people understand that sexual assault doesn’t just happen to women? Why is it when a girl tells their friends that they were forced to have sex with their boyfriend, they’re told that it’s rape and they need to report it straight away, but when a guy tells his friends that their girlfriend forced them to have sex with them, they’re told that they need to marry her and that they wish their girlfriend was like his.
Bottom line is that we need to stop having one rule for one gender, and another rule for the other.
I am fully aware that people may not agree with what I’ve said, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I won’t change mine. I would love to hear your opinions. Let me know.
