A Lady Doesn't Have To Be A Feminist For She To Be Independent by Nobody: 12:12am On May 26, 2018
A LADY DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A FEMINIST FOR SHE TO BE INDEPENDENT.

Hello Y'all.
Recently I saw a thread ,when I opened the thread I saw some people saying :Nigerian men hate feminists but they forget the good things they crave for comes with feminism ".

Now let's talk about the ignorance some people have on that matter. A woman doesn't have to be be a feminist before she can be independent. Independence is something every sensible woman is suppose to crave for.

Feminism is all about equal opportunities for both genders not financial independence. The founders of the feminism ideology didn't include financial independence in their cause" .Financial independence for ladies is another topic entirely on it's own.

Feminism is the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

Feminist movements have campaigned and continue to campaign for women's rights, including the right to vote, to hold public office, to work, to earn fair wages or equal pay, to own property, to receive education, to enter contracts, to have equal rights within marriage, and to have maternity leave. Feminists have also worked to ensure access to legal abortions and social integration, and to protect women and girls from rape, sexual harassment, and domestic violence and not independence because that's a different topic on it's own.



So a man can hate feminism and still want an independent wife.

about 75% of the American female population are independent.. who's gonna tell me they're all feminists?
The number of feminists among them aren't more than 15% even if more people support the ideology because there's difference between someone who's supporting something and someone who's practising the thing.


Y'all should stop spilling your ignorance everywhere okay.
Men can hate feminism and still crave for Independent ladies because financial independence has nothing to do with feminism.

Read your books and do enough research very well before creating stupid threads and including feminism in them ,when you don't even have adequate knowledge on the ideology.

This is like saying that a bird doesn't have to be a duck in order to quack. You want it to quack but it shouldn't waddle. It shouldn't be a duck. Okay undecided. Even if the bird doesn't call itself a duck (because someone tries to convince it that it isn't one), if it quacks like duck............

What you are only trying to do is suppress its knowledge of itself, so that you can harvest the advantages to yourself without dealing with the parts that aren't so savory to you. Shame!

Feminism is a range of ideologies, political movements, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of the sexes. Before you claim that financial independence isn't part of the feminist agenda, you should enlighten yourself on the matter of economic empowerment.

Financial independence for ladies is another topic entirely on it's own..

Saying a man hates feminism but want to marry an independent lady so he's an hypocrite is ignorance of the highest order.

about or more than 75% of the American female population are independent.. only 15% or less are feminists.

You don't have to be a feminist before you can be independent so men can hate feminists and still crave for independent ladies.

Yes. I worked on that analogy. To correspond to your figures (not corroborating because I haven't checked them out yet): 75% of the American female population are birds that quack......only 15% or less are ducks. This is of course assuming that the only birds that quack are ducks.

This would lead me to another argument: is subjective consciousness a rudiment of feminism? Must a person define him/herself as one to be one; or can the flowers in bloom define the tree?

As a topic, anyone who advocates financial independence for women is essentially advocating empowerment for women. Even if it is only that narrow spectrum of economic empowerment. And women empowerment is the tool feminism uses to achieve its goal. Bow.....arrow.....and target. Empowerment.......women......and female emancipation/equal rights. If feminism were archery.

Where I am currently living was solely built by our landlord's wife, but if you weren't told, you probably wouldn't know. Now, that is a wife every man craves for.

BTW, Mr op, i wouldn't want to call your write up trash.

How can a leech claim to be a feminist?Who will take her seriously? For any real and serious feminist who hopes to influence lives, financial independence is a pre-requisite

Feminism in Nigeria has a lot of misplaced priorities.

You want equal opportunities with men but you want a man to spend the bill when both of you go out on a date. When you are called to pay the bills now, your body starts itching you.


Nonsense.


We should all not confuse the word Feminism with An Independent woman. They are two different concepts.

I never said an independent woman/lady has to be feminist, I only said most independent women/ladies are feminist.

Feminism has nothing to do with financial independence for ladies.. a lady can be independent and not be a feminist.

Your ignorance is vast..

who told you that most independent ladies are feminists?
Let's take Nigeria for instance how many feminists do we even have in Nigeria? I believe we can count them but we can't count the number of independent ladies in Nigeria, right?...
A lady doesn't have to be a feminist for she to be independent neither does an independent lady have to be a feminist.

In my article, you saw the figures I put up there. About or more than 75% of the American female population are independent.. less than 15% are feminists.

when some kids rant on nairaland that Linda Ikeji is a feminist ,I just ask myself if Nigerians really understand the meaning of feminism.

The fact that Linda Ikeji is an independent lady doesn't mean she's a feminist.
The fact that Linda Ikeji has been preaching to Nigerian ladies to be independent doesn't make her a feminist because financial independence is something every sensible lady is supposed to strive for.

A feminist doesn't have to announce that she's a feminist before she's recognized as one.. your works are the things that'll determine if you're a feminist.

How many times have Linda Ikeji, Toke Makinwa and so called Nigerian feminists organized seminars on the topic of feminism or female liberation or even empowerment? how many times have they given speeches on the matter of female equality?

For example.. The world's current population is 7.5billion or more.. let's say 4 or 5billion are females

The number of feminists in this world aren't up to 600million.

So I wonder where you came with your "most independent ladies are feminists " remark from.

and as for your last statement :
there are two types of males in this world:
Alpha males and
Beta Males.

Alpha males are the ones that won't share bills with their wives and at the same time won't share house chores with their wives... they're pre dominantly found in Africa and some parts of Asia.


Beta males are the ones that share bills with their wives and at the same time share house chores with their wives... they're pre dominantly found in western countries and some parts of Asia.


Alpha males are already going to extinction in civilized countries.. a lot of them have embraced the "Beta male" concept.

Most independent ladies aren't feminists.

Less than 10% of feminists make up the world's female population.

Independent ladies makes up about 57% or more of the world's female population.
let's talk about Britain... Dependent ladies in the UK and Europe as whole are at an all time low according to a research carried out by daily mail.
More than 83% of British women are working and somehow independent.

40% of them support feminism.. 25% of them are feminists.

note: there's deference between supporting something and putting something into practice.

75% or more of the American female population are independent and less than 15% or less are feminists.

Do your research carefully before opening threads to say what you don't know.


More than 57% of the world's female population are independent...
