feminism is the idea that focusing on one sex will create equality. it needs work both ways for equality to happen. get with the program.
I mean, yes, there are militant feminists who want to burn bras and wear skirts in construction zones, and there are feminists who want the work force to have a perfectly equal male:female ratio, but I think there are a lot of different kinds of feminism. For me, feminism is about making it okay for any gender to be feminine. This doesn’t just focus on just one sex because being a ‘girl’ doesn’t mean you have to be feminine and being a ‘boy’ doesn’t mean that you can’t be. For example, it’s generally not socially acceptable for guys to be feminine (or society’s idea of such) - no skirts, no fruity drinks, no excessive emotions, etcetera. However, it’s slightly more acceptable for girls to be masculine, tomboyish. We tend to look at femininity in general as something that makes you weaker and lesser.
I’m not just advocating for equal rights, I’m advocating for sex to be about as unremarkable as hair color. Maybe you’re attracted to people with blonde hair. Or brown hair. Or both, or bald people, whatever.
Feminism is about making it okay to be feminine - or not, as long as it’s your choice.
