Growing up, I was always anti-feminist. It sounds crazy – how could I be against equality for all? But back then I didn’t know what feminism was. Back then, I thought feminists were crazy women who wanted to walk men with a lead plaited from their own armpit hairs. Back then, I thought feminists were violent vigilantes who burnt their bras and ran around kicking men where you really should never kick a man… Unless, of course, you have their consent – but we won’t get into that today!! But, that was back then. I was 7 years old then and even though I’m only 15, I know enough about the world to say I know what feminism means to me.
Feminism to me is equality for all.
Feminisim to me is my three closest friends being male.
Feminism to me is not spreading lies, secrets, and rumours about those we call our “sisters”.
Feminism to me is about fighting the good fight, and standing up for what I believe in.
But, most importantly feminism to me is bringing other girls up, not tearing them down.
Thank you so much for reading, I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in ages, I’ve had something of a writer’s block – hence why this isn’t so long – and I’ve also been swamped with revision, and when I’m not revising you’ll find me hanging out with boy friends’ and boyfriend’s. Stay tuned because I will post more regularly, you’re all amazing,
xo baby, Tati xoxo
The Fighting Female
Future generations being able to live
Equally alongside their peers, ending the constant
Misogyny us girls face as people are scared of our
Intelligence, even though they pretend our self love is
Narcissism, but don’t worry about them as they are just too
Ignorant to know basic fundamental human rights. But you’re different. You’re
Stronger, smarter and sassier than all of them combined. If we all work
Together, we can end this obsession and make equality the norm.
