"FEMINISM IS IRRELEVANT NOW. WOMEN HAVE THEIR RIGHTS." -a woman.
If only that were true.
I don't know about YOU but maybe I need it because i would like to make as much money as a man does and not be denied a job simply for having a vagina. I know that I can work just as hard but apparently my p*ssy says otherwise.
Maybe we need it because the fact that people (not just men. Trust me) think its ok to harass and grope whatever woman they lay eyes on. My 1st year in highschool some random guy came up to me and grabbed my vagina and snickered to all of his friends about it. (This even happened in middle school). Apparently this has happened to many girls in my school and the staff did nothing. Nada. Actually they did do something. They basically said ok, thanks for telling us, I guess. Lmfao.
The fact that I can't show my shoulders or above my knees bc its distracting to the guys in my school yet they can wear shirts that say "f*ck b*tches"and "suck my d*ck" or ones that have naked women on them. Because thats school appropriate but my one hole in my one pant leg, according to them, makes every guy jizz himself.
The fact that in most of the world, women can't choose what to do with their body or their life. People seem to forget that they world isn't just America or Other 1st world countries. They think that if its "fine" here its "fine" everywhere. In many many parts of the world, Women can't even own sh*t or wear what they want. In order to have a house as a woman, you have to marry a man with money, honey. They tell you what to wear, when to speak, what to say, what to do, how to live and you have to do it, BY LAW. Young girls are often sex Slaves and dont have a right to an education. Having An education should be a basic human right not a privilege. But If you fight for something, in those places, you're killed. (Women actually have been killed multiple times because they want their rights. Its something you just can't live without. Its something you die for. Because If you dont have freedom then you were never living in the 1st place.) Girls that are younger than me. Girls that are preteens can't work, can't learn. They're forced into marriage at ages like 11, 12 and 13. To senior citizen men and yes its legal in many places and ALL of this still happens right now.
Did you know there are women all over the world that aren't allowed to touch or communicate with people while on their period? Periods in parts of Africa, South America, Asia, etc. Are seen as a curse. If you touch a woman on their period there, you have bad luck. What's worse is women there aren't even taught how to handle it. No pads, no tampons. Nothing but a piece cloth and the grace of god.
The fact that people think being the leader is being a man and that is a belief in many religions and a great portion of the world. I heard a woman say that a womans job is to be quiet and listen to their man. "Men are supposed to lead us. Women can't teach. They sit, shut up, and listen". Like i said before, "lol."
Yeah we have most of our rights right here. Right now. But there are women that STILL have to work for that sh*t. Why the f*ck do we still have to fight and die for that sh*t? Because people after years and years believe its a joke. Try looking at it from someone elses perspective instead of watching from up your a$$.
To the women that stand up for themselves and try to make it right, I respect you immensely. It was only 1998 that the 72 year fight for rights has ended. No one can do it alone but as a whole, look how far its come.
So, "Do women still need feminism?"
Yes! The title "woman" doesn't belong to just you and me. There are other women out there. Shocker. I know, crazy, right? And they dont have rights. They have nothing. I live in America and still feel that there is unfinished business. I don't know about you, but I have enough respect for myself to actually stand up for myself and other women. I'm proud to say I'm a feminist. I fight for my rights. Why is that a horrible thing? Anyways, Thats why we still need feminism. It's not about being against men or being superior or not shaving your arm pits or whatever stupid sh*t. Its about sh*t being fucked up and fixing the sh*t.
