Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

We absolutely LOVE the new #LikeAGirl video/campaign from P&G and Always, which seeks to change the connotations behind the phrase, “You [verb] like a girl.”

newwavefeminism:

Everyone: why is she with him if he treats her so wrong and/or is so abusive? She needs to leave, or her daughter is going to grow up getting mistreated because of her.
No One: why does he mistreat the two women in his life that should mean the most to him? He needs to either get his act together or let his wife and/or children move on and heal

"…One thing that can be very alienating about a misconception of feminism is that girls then think that to be a feminist, they have to live up to being perfectly consistent in your beliefs, never being insecure, never having doubts, having all the answers, and this is not true and actually, recognizing all the contradictions I was feeling became easier once I understood that feminism was not a rulebook but a discussion, a conversation, a process."

I really tried to capture his facial expression.

:

maybe they just rub me wrong since they’re always explained by some pouty faced dude, but these posts always seem to roughly translate to,

“Dear girl, I know you must be insecure not because the world has told you a lot of specific instructions about how you have to dress and look a certain way in order to be happy and beautiful and to have people like you that is reflected and reinforced in all the tv and movies we watch, the magazines we buy, the commercials that air-

I know the real reason for your insecurity must be that not enough men have told you today that your face looks good no matter what you put on it.  Now you feel better, right?”
