I am a feminist. I will speak up for both men and women. I will speak up for anyone who is being treated unfairly. We are all created equal. We are all God's children.
Personal reflection: Any doubt about why we need feminism? Disgusting that our society still believes that women "belong in the kitchen" "put in their place" "not vote" "not speak in church" I have personally attended a church where women were not allowed to speak, it felt very belittling
Don't tell me we don't need feminism. Until every woman on this planet enjoys equal rights, we need feminism.

Sexism goes both ways. Feminism helps both. - "A lot of time feminism is seen as man-hating at whatever. I did not consider myself a feminist for a long time because of this. However, the majority of feminists, the feminists that aren't all up in yo face are not looking to hate your manness. We are merely trying to make the world a little safer for everyone. That means I will treat women the same for sexual harassment as I do for men."

Double standards are not a part of feminism, equal rights, or human rights whether we agree with others or not.
Religion, Politics, Hypocrite, Atheism, Truth, Liberal
Equal rights also mean that if you find something offensive in another religion or culture, you should find the same thing offensive in your own. Both of these sickens me, both as an Atheist, and as a pacifist.
Truth be told. about conservative hypocrites. Although, Holly Fisher is looking for attention is found a new way to get it.
Atheism, Religion, Christianity, Islam, God is Imaginary. If this offends you... but this makes you "proud" you are a hypocrite.
.Double standards are not a part of feminisism... Violence in the name of religion is NEVER excusable, whether you're holding a Bible or a Qur'an
Yeah, no I don't think so. Wrong and so stupid on so many levels! American Christians aren't wanting to forcefully dominate the world. If you feel this is true...ship your sorry ass to Fallujah. Good riddance. Islam is a death cult that has no respect for women. Check out Sharia Law before you flash the hypocrite card. #ignorantshit
They are LITERALLY the same thing: a young woman holding a gun and a religious book while standing in front of the flag of her country. I see no difference.
Freedom of religion is a gift for everyone. Just because you believe different don't condemn. Some people only look for the negative in other religions but ignore the negatives in their own. Believe your beliefs and let others do the same.
Proving, yet again, that Liberals are incapable of distinguishing between good and evil.
If this offends you... but this makes you "proud" you are a hypocrite.
society. *eyeroll* How about "people" can't we just be "people" ? Both of these girls are human beings. End of story. The patriarchal obsession with classification of women based on perceived chasity really needs to stop.
Girl, Life, Quotes, Truth, So True, Feminism, Things, Women
This depicts how society sees women today. And to be truthful, I think this is fairly accurate of most. It's very black and white in the way of virginity. So do virgins really have the power? Or is it the people that define what a virgin is?
Some people don't understand the truth in this, if you're not one you're the other. Honestly your personal life is nobody else's business.
They don't need to let you win. When you follow your own truth, you've already won. Women are women are women. We should not let definitions that mean nothing restrict us.
So true we send such a confusing message to our young women. Don't let your kids buy into the lies.
Women being seen as sexual objects through media must have an end put to it. Calling a woman a 'whore' for sleeping with men is not uncommon, even as a man can get away with the same things without a problem or comment made to them. Being a virgin is also unacceptable for a young woman in today's society as women are expected to be experienced at such young ages. Sexism will carry on as long as women are being judged based on their choice to be sexual or not, and their appearances.
This image was clearly created by someone with at least a minimal understanding of the way society treats women. We often see virgins set against "whores" in a compare/contrast situation. I dislike the fact that they used the word that they did in this image, when they just seem to be describing a woman with a sex life. Even with images like these that are attempting to uncover injustices, there are still ways that we let how we have been conditioned take control and influence what we say. - CO
Not a quote from a wise woman, but some wise words about women instead...

Rape is NEVER the victim's fault -- get it through your minds.
Quotes, Victims Fault, Rapeculture, Feminism, Rape Culture, Feminist, Women
Rape is never the victim's fault. No one "asks" to get raped, it just happens. A women should be able to wear whatever she wants without being judged. Rapist are the only cause of rape and their are no other factors that add to that. Evil people are simply looking for an excuse to make rape acceptable.
Rape culture keeps women from feeling safe at night because if they're wearing something revealing, people may say she's "asking for it" and if sexual assault were to happen she may not be taken seriously. This is an issue that needs to change. .
It is a shame that rape culture has turned women into easy targets. Whether or not women are dressed in ways that society considers "provocative," a woman is NEVER asking to be sexually assaulted.
Rape culture is telling girls and women to be careful about what you wear, how you wear it, how you carry yourself, where you walk, when you walk there, whom you trust, what you do, where you do it, what you drink, how much you drink, ext. Rape is never the victims fault. Our society is looking at this issue in the wrong way. Women shouldn't have to change anything about themselves to be less likely to become a victim of this disturbing crime.
Rape is never the victims fault however many women are left feeling victimised and as though it is. The way they perhaps dressed, or the bit of harmless flirting they may have taken place in, can easily be twisted to say they provoked the perpetrator. It has been quoted by an unknown source that "women should not get drunk at parties lest they get themselves raped." This is basically implying that women are responsible for ensuring they do not become a victim.
Serious issues concerning women such as rape were not federally punished or recognized until around the 1970s. Along with that, even now in the 21st century some people within society argue that women provoke what they receive. There are lots of people who have argued that the way women dress decides how their night will go and what will happen. According to sociology this concept is, however, wrong. Feminists would argue that nobody asks to be taken advantage of, nor does anybody enjoy it.

Every person goes through each of these at some point in their lives. Don't let anyone put a label on you, because truth is we are constantly evolving, and who you were yesterday is not who you are today and is not who you will be tomorrow. And remember that if you are not yet who you want to be, this very moment is a new opportunity to chip away at the fears and faults that hold you back.

Feminism "I'm going to tell the men in the room something they probably don't know. Feminists are your best friends. We believe in your humanity."
Feminists are a man's best friend (and if you don't think that's the case, then you're probably confusing Feminism for Misandry)
I love men. Just wish more men understood feminists aren't out to get them. ~ trish http://www.ArousedWoman.com #Feminism #men #humanity #arousedwoman
I'm going to tell the man in the room something that they probably don't know. Feminists are your best friends. We are the only group that really believes in your humanity. The feminists are the only group that believes that you are not born rapists, you are not born John's, you were not born pimps or batterers. In fact, we believe you were born with the full human capacity that women are born with. And we believe, unlike pornographers, that you are not life-support systems for a erect penises
We also fight to bring awareness and support to things like male domestic violence.
For those who think being feminist = man hater
OKAY BRAVO. WELL PUT THANK YOU. truth!

Stand up for what's right. Be strong when others least expect it. Fight battles worth fighting for. Live for equality. Most people who don't know a lot about feminism wouldn't classify themselves as a feminist, but if you think women are strong, independent, and just as worthy as men then you most definitely are a feminist.

Quotes, Truth, Gender Double Standards, Accepted Gender, Gender Equality, Feminist, Gender Bias, Doublestandards
Accepted gender double-standards. This hits the nail on the head! I sometimes hear people argue that because women are holding positions of power then there is "no discrimination against women". However, I find the descriptors for women in positions of power very telling, and interpret these gender bias as an indicator otherwise.
Isn't this the truth!!!! Double standards. Assertive-bitch. articulate-chatty. stud-slut. leader-nag. #feminism #feminist #sexism #doublestandard
Gender Bias...sometimes obvious...other times it is an accepted norm. Feisty feminists are raising awareness that gender bias on either side is NOT acceptable and has to change and will change if we continue to stand together and voice our outrage. Equality and human rights...that is what we are standing for.
I am not much in the feminist department but this is amusingly true Accepted gender double-standards. This nails it! Another one Ive noticed is that if a woman has opinions (especially educated opinions), shes a know-it-all, whereas a man with opinions is alert to the world. Sad that I first saw this list in 1976...and here it is 2012...and it is still in play.

I hate the word feminism. It implies that MEN are stifling women's equality. Let me tell you, all those comments in this cartoon...I've heard all of them from women throughout my whole life!! I've NEVER had a man say those things to my face (maybe stupid bitch once after I called my brother some bad stuff first. I'm not saying it's right but I was also provoking). Point is You can't fight women hate, with feminism. We need a gender neutral term for this day&age..call it THE RESPECT MOVEMENT

the concept of virginity. Can a woman take a man's virginity? I've been told a man can only give his virginity to a woman, while taking hers. Who made that rule?
Equality Feminism, Feminism Politics, Social Construct, Man S Virginity, Idealizing Virginity, Feminist Meme, Feminist Elizabethan, Feminism Activism Sociology, Feminism Today
These concepts of virginity are very visible within feminism today, and I believe that more people need to be informed of "virginity" and its development throughout history as well as the construction of the hymen...and why it's connected to the term "virgin."
This is a great commentary on how many prejudices are outlined in virginity. There is an ideal virgin that excludes women of color and queer women. This concept keeps the control firmly in the hands of men.

Virginity is a social construct.
