Feminism: Cool in college, ugly in the "real world" Bitch Magazine
Shared via AddThis
I would sincerely like to know why and when feminism became about un-sexy, mean women who hated men. At Lehman College, one of my colleagues has this posted on her office door:
Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.
What is so hard to understand about this? It's not mean, its just sensible. Logical.
Feminism exists so 25 year old women in the workplace don't have to be sexually harassed. It's now against the law. Should we go back to the way things were? Being called honey and baby, comments like "your ass looks good in that skirt", and then you were supposed to just laugh and find that flattering.
Feminism exists so women can vote.
Feminism exists so women can get an abortion.
Feminism exists so women, if they want, can have an existence outside of the box of wife and mother.
Feminism exists so pornography can be made by women for women.
Feminism exists so women can study to become lawyers, engineers, bankers. It wasn't so long ago that the only "professional" occupations available were "whore" or "teacher".
Feminism exists so I can have a voice.
Again, what's mean or un-sexy about this? Please explain.
