Feminism. The belief that both men and women should have equal rights.
It isn't the belief that are women better than men.
It isn't the belief that all men should be humiliated.
It isn't the belief that men should be belittled in society.
It is the belief in equal rights between women and men.
Yet, the word especially on this website, can be highly frowned upon. The word has been twisted.
So many males I have talked to believe that feminism is cancer, and that it was set out so women can take over. That is not the case.
I was born and raised in England and 100 years ago women got the vote. Feminism did that. Before it was highly frowned upon for a man to stay at home and look after the house and children. Because that was not seen as a 'real' job. Of course it is. Anybody who does that, man or women is helping to raise tomorrow's voters, tomorrow's workers, a piece or pieces of tomorrow's society. Feminism is the cause that changed people's viewpoints on stay at home dad's. Feminism made the majority of people realize that staying home and looking after the family isn't just a woman's job, and it doesn't make a man any less of a man to do so.
I've also seen people claim, that modern day society doesn't need feminism. Personally, I believe that is utterly false. How does modern day society not require feminism when there is still so much gender inequality rearing it's horrific head lurking, in so many places? Women still face the gender pay gap. Men still face the struggle to express emotions without being laughed at.
Those are just two immense issues concerning society. There are so many more, in modern day society. Males, you face so many issues within society.
You are also victims of sexual harrasment.
Imbalances in certain work-fields and sports.
And those are just a few I thought of myself, and as said before I'm sure they are more. Female feminists also want to change this as well as changing inequality against women and males should too. Feminists want to change society for the better.
To all the males who are not feminists, don't you want to change these problems? Let your voices to be heard with ours? The more of us there are the larger chance we have of putting an end to this.
