Three Things A Feminist Should Avoid (Opinion) by Toks2008(m): 8:11pm On May 05
Feminism is an ideology that believes in equality of all the sexes in all aspects and strata of life ...It is about both gender having equal rights and opportunities and as long as you believe in this ideology, you are a feminist whether you are a male or female.

But Feminism transcends beyond sex equality hence there is a deeper twist to this term Feminism and it is simply about a woman having total freedom to do what she wants without any form of inhibitions... it is about a woman having total independence in all facets of life and this is the true definition of Feminism.

Be that as it may, i find a very funny contradictions in the persona or way of life of ladies who claim to be feminists and that is the crux of this piece... Below are three things a female Feminist should avoid and any lady who claims to be a feminist yet is involved in any of these three is hypocritical or perhaps confused about who she is.

1. A FEMINIST SHOULD AVOID MARRIAGE : Except there is a different form of marriage asides the one institutionalized by the creator GOD almighty then i think any feminist who goes into marriage is on a wild goose chase or should just give up the ideology.

There is no way you can be a feminist and practise the submissiveness as commanded by GOD. A feminist does what she wants and she is not obliged to obey any man. The bible and even the Quran clearly state that the Husband is the head of the wife and a wife MUST SUBMIT AND OBEY HER HUSBAND. This is a total deviation from the ideology of feminism and any feminist who is married is not a true feminist.

2. A FEMINIST MUST NEVER DEPEND ON ANY MAN FINANCIALLY: You can't be a feminist and still want a man to pay your bills...a feminist makes her own money 100% and will never at any point depend partly or totally on any man for money. After all, financial independence is a core attribute of a feminist.

3. A FEMINIST SHOULD NEVER TURN DOWN ANY TASK OR JOB WITH AN EXCUSE THAT IT IS A MAN'S THING:
It is all about equality so there is no job designated for the men, a feminist should be able to take up any task no matter how manly it appears and any lady who believes in the feminism ideology yet shies away from certain tasks with an excuse that it is a man's thing should simply give up the ideology.

My candid opinion...You may add yours.

Nice one. The truth is that there is no big deal if any lady chooses the path of feminism... I just hate it when a lady wants to have her cake and still eat it. Feminists don't believe in the ideology of a man being the head of a lady, it does not believe in respecting or submissiveness to any man.

You can't be acting like a feminist in a relationship and still expect to be treated like a traditional lady.

You defined egalitarianism not feminism.

Feminists are not looking to even any scale. They are looking out for women only.

Their idea of success and fulfilment is incomplete if a man is not losing out or if they cannot favourably compare said success with that of a man.

As for what they should avoid, I agree. No man should be unfortunate to be married to a feminist, especially these Nigerian e-feminists A.K.A bitterleaf FC.

Get your facts right.. Feminism is a more specific form of egalitarianism.

Whilst egalitarianism deals with people in general, feminism specifies it to gender equality.

Totally wrong.

Feminism doesn’t care about a fair world but only the the advancement of women. Don’t be deceived. By their fruit you shall know them.

They are always in contention even over the smallest things.

Feminism isn't about equality of both sexes.

It's about female superiority. They want to be the superior gender. but that's never going to happen.

Exactly!

Heathrow44:

Op u understand what feminism really is, is not about men and women being equal, feminism is a nice name for "Women supremacy" the other guy talking about egalitarianism isn't well in the know! Feminism doesn't really want t create level playing field for gender but to emasculate men, they want a situation where jobs are given just for being a woman! They don't care if u re qualified for it or not, NOI has already started it! That's wat u get when feminists get on top, they empower women and emasculate men which isn't feminism, feminism to them is advancing women rights no matter the circumstances, looking out for women at the detriment of men, if a woman is accuses a man of rape they don't care to know if its true or not, there own is to protect women weda right or wrong! Today's women's feminism is a Misandrist movement and a hate crime against men!!!! Don't be deceived!

You've said it all!

Unfortunately all 3 are things they can't avoid. The Nigerian (most) feminist (both home and abroad) are a bunch of bitter, vengeful and vile creatures. One look at them and you'll see everything wrong with everything a woman is.

What Nigerian women practice is witchcraft and borderline Misandry, go figure.

As for me and my household, we won't have anything to do with BITTERLEAF FC henceforth.

Have a restful evening, goodnight and God bless.

Lol all of you will be fine, the earlier you guys realise that a female movement is for the betterment and inclusion of females in every sphere of life, the better for you.

A movement that is not even recognised in Nigeria, is what is giving most of y'all heart attack like the government is about adding it into the constitution when there are so many ills in the country right now, yet you people keep crying and wailing over it, concern yourselves in getting solutions to the negativities everywhere, then when or if feminism sees the light of day, your wailing may be heard, which is actually never cos of the high handedness of naija men and religion.

If I read the post right, it means that feminists should have their own world where men are just co-inhabitants.

In essence, it means feminists shouldn't be married to men.
In essence, it means feminists should marry themselves.
In essence, it means feminists should be lesbians.
In essence, it means you support gay marriage.
In essence, it means you're fake to quote the Bible since you support gay which the Bible stands against.

In essence, it means your opinion is flawed!!!

I can never date a low-budget feminist. If you claim to be a feminist, then you must be ready to foot lots of bills. Feminists are better off in the circle of Baby Mamas e.g Auntie Linda
