My boyfriend just dumped me bcause he found another woman who, in his words, "acts like a real woman", I asked him what that entails and he bascially said "She's not a man-hating Feminist" like I supposedly am. I immediately felt sick to my stomach and ran to the bathroom to throw up.
Right now I feel horrible, like I just wanna disappear, crawl into a cave and spend the rest of my life in it... something.
This is probably the biggest punch in the face I have ever received.
I mean, yes I'm a Feminist, I'm proud of that, I wear it on my sleeve and it defines a huge chunk of who I am and I though he was supportive of my beliefs, but I guess not and my beliefs are the reason he's breaking my heart.
What in the hell do men want from us? To be like blowup dolls devoid of personalities and flaws, silent sex toys? Is that all men want is sex? I swear, sometimes I hate the entire breed and right now my soul is on fire.
What do men mean when they say they want a "Real Woman"? Was I not real enough for him?

How much room did feminism take in your couple? If you kept refusing everything because it was demeaning or something, he may have grown tired of it. If you twisted everything he wanted and made it into a feminism issue, I don't blame him. And that is coming from a feminist. If you keep seeing your boyfriend as the "enemy", it's no surprise that he left. So I ask you again, how much room did feminism take in your couple?8

:/ Are you one of those pushy feminists who lacks tact, decency, and consideration of other's feelings when you speak and can't help but bombard people with your thoughts and feelings on gender relations? Woman to woman: some feminists are a pain in the azz because they bark like a Chihuahua then progressively bark even louder if you disagree with them or refuse to compromise your view to fit theirs. It's annoying as hell, even as a woman. If this description fits you then all you can do at this point is humbly consider if your view of what it means to be a feminist unintentionally spreads bad vibes and comes off as toxic to others then work to change it.13
