Having noticed that TERFs have been calling themselves “Feminist” a lot lately. I will tell you what it is not.
Firstly TERFism is not Feminism, haha
Whether you agree or call yourself one or not. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t automatically mean you are a feminist.
I consider myself a Feminist, because I believe in Equality. Now there is another term that people like to use “Equalitarian”. Which is basically, equality for both sexes.
I personally, have no problem with either of these terms. They mean pretty much the same thing. Feminism just has a focus on Females/Women.
Feminism itself though, is not a weapon to use against others to “get back” at those who have abused the patriarchy.
Feminism is not a excuse to hide behind and attack others.
Feminism is not a excuse to hide behind women and girls, and attack others.
Feminism is for equality.
You can’t have feminism without men either. Men can absolutely be Feminists too. If we choose to exclude men from feminism, how would that make it better than the patriarchy?
