Sad, yes. But The Tumblr I read today may just be the most depressing of them all.
It’s called ‘Women Against Feminism‘, and it is the most depressing Tumblr that currently exists on the Internet.
On it, women are encouraged to send in photos of themselves holding up signs that explain why they don’t need feminism. Signs like this one:
Women Against Feminism is a self-described space for “women’s voices against modern feminism and its toxic culture”.
DAMN THOSE FEMINISTS AND THIER TOXIC QUEST FOR EQUAL RIGHTS!
How very dare they strive for a world in which rape culture doesn’t exist? A world in which women are paid the same as men for doing the same job? A world in which violence against women is not at endemic levels? A world in which women are represented equally in positions of government? A world in which women have autonomy over their own bodies?
How very dare those crazy feminists demand a world in which there is equal rights between men and women?
Because guess what? That’s all that feminism is. Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social and economic equality to men.
