Why you’re not a feminist.

Feminism (according to the Oxford dictionary) is, “The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.”

I have seen far too many images being shared on various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.) by people who believe themselves to be feminists that actually have little to do with feminism, and more to do with female superiority. I personally believe in social equality of both genders, but if you believe that women are superior to men then feel free to believe so but please don’t call yourself a feminist, because you’re not. By calling yourself a feminist, you make actual feminists (people who believe in gender equality, not superiority) look bad.

To further prove my point on why your campaign for gender superiority is very different from a feminist’s campaign for gender equality, I’ve gathered two “pro-feminist” images I found shared on Tumblr (a social media website), and their altered versions that I created using Photoshop:

1.

Original post.

Original post: Gender superiority.

Male equivalent of the post.

Edit: Male equivalent of the post. (Also gender superiority.)

Feminism.

2. 

Original post. (Gender superiority...isn't rape great?!)

Original post: Gender superiority. *Note the comment below the post that says “This is the best story that ever happened.”

 

Male equivalent of the post. It's a little less funny now, isn't it?

Feminism. Because a woman holding a male intruder hostage and raping him for 3 days is not "more okay" than a man holding a female intruder hostage and raping her for 3 days.

Now stop misrepresenting a group of people who support a noble cause.
