this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that
he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious
update: I banged him
Liberal feminism: man googles the word feminism after seeing it on television, I am so impressed by this that I must fuck him + blog about it
This is the most embarrassing thing I have ever seen.
'its about letting women do whatever they want'
i do not blame the op for being brainwashed by liberal feminism bc myself and others were there too, and we are so used to being dehumanized by males that i understand her idealization of this dude as an impulsive reaction, but, god. this is usually the end game of liberal feminism. male placation. depoliticization and reducing the substance of feminism into individual frivolities. no paradigm shift, no dissent. it’s entirely acceptable to the common misogynist if you frame it in a non threatening depoliticized way. and this is what pop feminism is doing and with it, its transformative revolutionary potential is lost. males whose privilege comes at the expense of the subordination of the female class will never embrace the hierarchy being toppled and women realizing freedom from male supremacy’s constraints. these people are framing feminism in a way that is non threatening to the established social order that is the very reason for feminism (male supremacy, sex based oppression, white supremacy, capitalism, etc). it is so damaging to the movement and weve got more and more young girls buying into pop liberal feminism every day, duped into thinking that that is the height of revolution, simply reframing your oppression as empowering (really seems like a coping mechanism). feminism is not a commodity, its not a subjective concept, its supposed to threaten the established social order and seeks to ensure liberation and freedom from social hierarchies that specifically affect the female sex. it will not be palatable to the average person (males, hets, whites, upper class) who is invested in these systems.
I can’t understand feminists who suger coat the meaning of feminism for male peers, then again I can’t tell if the op thinks that is what the true meaning of feminism is? don’t try to “appeal” to your male peers, tell them what feminism is and if they react badly then throw them in trash where they belong
