do you know why feminism has a horrible image?
i’ll let you in on a secret here, it’s because people hate women
Ha. Ha. Ha. NO.


It’s because feminists biggest points of “oppression” have all been disproved, like the 1 in 4 rape myth, the wage gap, and gender bias in the school system. (x)


It’s because feminists completely ignore very serious issues concerning men in favor of “banning bossy” and fighting school dress codes. (x)


It’s because feminists have fought against equal custody and men winning custody over women, despite the fact that women are just as likely, if not more so, to abuse their children as men. (x)

It’s because, when men wanted protection against false rape accusations, feminists fought against it, causing it to fail. (x)

It’s because feminists have fought against regulating the legal system so that men and women receive equal sentences for equal crimes.  (Currently, males, on average, receive much longer, harsher sentences than women.) (x)

It’s because the feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed it so that men are rarely seen as victims and women are rarely seen as perpetrators. (x)

It’s because feminists have fought against legal definitions of rape that would include forced envelopment, thus allowing women to be considered “rapists.” (x)

It’s because of all these wonderful things feminists have done:

It’s because very notable feminists have said the following:

"The simple fact is that every woman must be willing to be identified as a lesbian to be fully feminist."

~National NOW Times, Jan.1988

~Catherine Comins, Vassar College,

Assistant Dean of Student Life in Time, June 3, 1991, p. 52

"The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it"

~Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, in Women and the New Rage, p.67

“I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honourable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.”

~Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor

“To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.”

~Valerie Solanas

“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.”

~Andrea Dworkin

“Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear”

~Susan Brownmiller

“The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men.”

~Sharon Stone

“In a patriarchal society, all heterosexual intercourse is rape because women, as a group, are not strong enough to give meaningful consent.”

~Catherine MacKinnon

“The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.”

~Sally Miller Gearhart

“All men are rapists and that’s all they are”

~Marilyn French

“Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release.”

~Germaine Greer

"Sex is the cross on which women are crucified … Sex can only be adequately defined as universal rape."

~Hodee Edwards

"Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat."

~Hillary Clinton

But, once again, we have a clear case of feminists playing the victim instead of owning up to the fact that their movement may not be the perfect movement that they think it is.
