Just something I wrote on the spur of the moment
I know that being a feminist makes me a little sensitive to hearing feminist bashing but seriously it has got to stop. I don't hate men nor am I a lesbian. I just want both sexes to be equal and I think that we all have to see how reproductive choices and educations affects us all. No I don't want to do everything a man can do ( I know that I will never be able to write my name in the snow) nor do I expect a man to give birth to a baby, but why society find it necessary to put us into these neat little boxes? Being a sex object is flattering but that is not all I want to be. I want to be a self-empowered functioning member of society that isn't held back by restrictions and guess what? I want that for any man too. When I read facebook walls that speak of how women should have never gotten the right to vote (written by a woman no less), it makes me want to literally cry. Not only is that woman putting herself and all the other women in the world down, she is poo-pooing the fight that women like Susan B. Anthony had to lead for that right. It's ignorance and totally frightening. Be sexy, be in relationships, but aspire to be something more. And this advice is for both sexes.
