|I Am A Feminist!! by Nobody: 12:33am On Nov 02, 2017|
I know you're here for my head but hear me out first. So in the space on an hour, I have come across two threads relating to feminism. This is not a counter or anything as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However I can't help but put my 2 cents in.
I seriously believe that feminism is highly misunderstood
First things first, let's define feminism; it is the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. Notice it doesn't say feminism is a drive towards matriarchy? Well that's simple, it's not.
There are many different types of feminism but I won't be discussing all of them as that will take too much time so I urge you to use good old Google!
So I think that the kind of feminism that people think of when they hear Feminism is Radical Feminism-: Radical feminism is a movement that believes sexism is so deeply rooted in society that the only cure is to eliminate the concept of gender completely or for females to dominate.
Now that's not the kind of feminism I'm talking about. Another type of Feminism is Liberal Feminism. Liberal feminists strive towards gender equality in all areas of life. Gender equality includes men too!
So why am I a feminist? Or why do I believe in gender equality? No, it's not because I believe that men and women are equal or because I'm against submissiveness or because I want female world domination (although that would be pretty cool)
I believe in gender equality for the same reason I believe in racial equality, tribal equality and anything that has to do with fairness in general.
Of course men and women are not equal, physicality being the main difference but they're both humans and both deserve to be treated equally as a result.
Believe me there's soo much more to say, but I don't want to make this too long. Feel free to ask questions, let's see if I can get you to see why feminism isn't all that bad
Give Femism a chance, it's not as bad as people make it out to be. We all should be feminists, we all should be striving towards equality

Emm, you better drop your armour and be like ibkayee .
Feminism is evil. Feminists are emotionally dissatisfied, ugly, heartbroken, single women.
Get a man to love and treat you right.
A man to make you emotionally fulfilled.
Let me see if you will still come here to do feminism
Sleep done come. Goodnight dear.

pocohantas:This is what baffles me about some women. Why would I need a man to make me feel emotionally fulfilled or loved? I love myself enough for me. A man? Yes I might WANT a man but I most definitely do not NEED one. Why would I want to depend on another human being? It all begins with loving oneself. Love yourself

trustyshoess:But tosin2much said if you don't have a guy, you cannot be happy. It means out happiness lies with them. Linda Ikeji is a very sad woman because she doesn't have a man and that is supposed to be her fulfillment. Pocohantas am I lying?
|Re: I Am A Feminist!! by NeeKlaus: 2:05am On Nov 02, 2017|
Lol. I have nothing much to say to you but as long as
- a guy still foots the entire bills on a date with the lady smiling like a morön,
- a guy assumes the role of a father, brother, uncle, Alhaji and Employer while paying the girl monthly 'salaries' just because he's in a parasitic relationship with her sorry ass,
- a man still receives the brunt of the public in a case of domestic violence because he's supposed to be the "stronger sex" irregardless of the fact that the lady might have provoked him first verbally,
Then, there's no gender equality. Your charade of liberal feminism (or whatchamacallit?) is total bullocks.
Nigerian feminists are a frustrated bunch.

trustyshoess:. This is the problem I have with feminist as modest as you try to act you simply can not hide the arrogance of your so call good feminism. Humans need each other for whatever reason if you truly do not need a man well the Earth is a Man's world I will advice you get a new planet to coexist with only human of your sex and quit littering NL with jaundiced opinion about equal right btw the sexes, thank you.

I said it, all these supposed feminists are bunch of bitter, heartbroken, depressed and desperate rejects who just couldn't hold down a dude

Well done aunty.
|Re: I Am A Feminist!! by Nobody: 7:09am On Nov 02, 2017|
Shawnnn01:Yes humans need humans but humans also have the ability to love themselves. Once you love yourself enough, you'll want what's best for you, not what society says is best.
Yes I truly do not NEED a man to be happy. I have enough love from myself, my family and my friends to last me a lifetime

makydebbie:Who said linda ikeji is sad because she doesn't have a man? Did shr actually say that or is that one of society's many assumptions?

trustyshoess:It's one of our nl boys stupid assumptions since we need men to be happy. Fvck! Is it sex? I'll get a dild© and feel happy.
