I feel like I have to get this off my chest, because it really bugs me…Men getting raped isn’t “okay” or “alright” because when a women gets raped we get called liars and all sorts…Guess what, when a man gets raped the EXACT same things happen. They get made fun of, they get told “Why didn’t you just fight her off” It is NEVER “better” for the opposite gender to be hurt the exact same way. It’s not okay to rape ANYONE and it is not “better” for men to get raped over women…That is NOT a feminist way of life…or way of thought…You are NOT a feminist if that’s what you think.
There…I got it off my chest
I am tired of women calling themselves “feminist” and then with things like this, somehow it’s alright for men to suffer…By the way I have noticed that it also usually other women who will hate on another women more who say “Rape”. If you look up the famous cases, such as Bill Cosby, the majority of “commentators” are other women, and not in a positive light, like “We’re here with you”. Don’t even get me started with the Chris Browns supporters are mainly all women too. Even though the guy repeatedly has injunctions and restraining orders against him, it is amazing how many women praise him…What for, I’m not even sure what for. A lot of his songs have auto-tune.
One of my triggers was set off a few days ago…and I am so over it! It all started when I saw this Twitter post by Emily Ratajkowski and you would think by now I would have learnt by now to NOT read the comments.
I could not control myself! I kind of lost it with one commenter and I swear this is what they posted:
“You’re a pathetic Kardashian wannabe, . Couldn’t pick a classier role model to follow? Feminism has nothing to do with being a slut.”
First of all, I cannot STAND women who do that to another women. What we wear has nothing to do with us being a slut or not, I also really just hate that word in general. It sure as hell does not mean someone is less of a feminist because of their clothing. However, calling another woman a “slut” for what she wears, is NOT feminism and gives the rest of us a bad name.
I don’t understand how someone can call themselves a feminist and in the same 140 characters, call another a woman a slut? I posted the apparent “offending” dress which a lot of people decided was inappropriate? I don’t think that it’s any shocking than anything else I’ve ever seen before.
Also from my own personal point of view, Feminism IS about “being a slut” Being a feminist to me, is about being equal to men, which includes women being able to sleep with whoever they want, wear whatever they want, WITHOUT being persecuted. Isn’t that kind of the point?
