I support feminism back in the 1900's when they were fighting to vote and those kinda things, and I support feminism in places like the Middle East where they are oppressed, but feminism in places like America and Europe is just a joke. What's your opinion on this?

Well I'm a feminist. I don't think being part of an issue means your only there when there's action it means your genuinely care and are waiting for whenever your allied to action again. Also women in the Middle East will need other places to support them so that they're heard by their peers and government. And I'm here to help.
Also "those who don't learn from their past are doomed to repeat it" I'll tell my kids all about how feminism has helped people and about how women face oppression, so that they grow up with an understanding and care for these issues. The key is really indoctrinating the youth.
Just because I can vote doesn't mean I have to stop beig a feminist. No where in the definition of feminist does it say "only when relevant or only during oppression" if you believe in feminist teachings then your feminist. The time doesn't matter only what you believe in matters
Feminism in the modern world tries to tackle social things like empowering your fellow women and I didn't know telling other women that they're awesome was ridiculous. Teaching my daughter that she doesn't have to be photoshopped or wear makeup to be beautiful is a good thing. It's not political or anything but I think it's still an important message for me to send to my youth and peers.2
