I AM A STRONG INDEPENDANT WOMAN WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN-
but maybe a cute boy would be nice idk
I don’t NEED a man, but I would LIKE one
THIS TIMES A MILLION
I definitely believe that there are issues that need to be addressed and changed regarding women. I consider myself a feminist and come across problems daily due to misogyny. The newest video circulating has ENRAGED me to no end because it’s true. Media treats women horribly because it’s primarily ran by men. That is a fact.
But I do have to say one thing though:
I love men.
Men are important. Certain men have done amazing things for our society. Women can do these things too.
I’m lucky in the fact that I have positive male figures in my life. My father is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) person I know. He is selfless. He is brave. He is compassionate. And he has always treated me the way every man should treat his daughter—he didn’t just treat me as his “female child”. I am his child. He respects my mother and the admiration and love he has for her brings tears to my eyes. My father treats the women in his life as his equal (sometimes even treats them as his superior) and he has maintained his masculinity. In fact, he maintains his masculinity by having values for the people he loves.
My brother has also maintained some of these traits. There are times where I question him or even argue a different point of view, but I know he is a 24 year old male who is still learning. But the respect he has for my mother and the women in his life is unfaltering.
I wish more guys could be the same. Sure, many of my male friends are amazing and unbelievably respectful towards me and the girls they surround themselves with. But if these people were raised with the same values as my father and brother, many of these problems would not exist. If the people who control the media were like my father, things were be vastly different.
I just find that men sometimes struggle with the concept of feminism because they feel it will challenge their masculinity, when in fact it’s the opposite.
My father is a perfect example.
Men are great. Women are great. There are just certain clumps of individuals that like to make it difficult for good people to thrive in this world.
I’m not even tired anymore. Fuck.
