I need FEMINISM for many reasons, but here are 3 of them:
1) My roommate told me she’s pretty sure she was drugged at a party, but isn’t acting like her rights as a human and a woman were blatantly VIOLATED, 2) My roommate and I were discussing issues surrounding women and she literally said the words “I’m about to go on a feminist rant, but I swear I’m not a feminist, don’t worry”… what? 3) My boyfriend said my best friend (who is male) looks girly because he wears a scarf… because guys can’t look stylish or BE WARM too?
“Same sex couples shouldn’t be able to adopt because their kids will get bullied for having two moms or two dads”

“We know the devastating the statistics: 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have been raped in their lifetimes. That’s 18 million women in this country who have been raped. These numbers are real, but they don’t tell the whole story. They don’t tell of the broken trust when the attacker is a friend, a trusted colleague, or a family member. They don’t tell of the suicidal feelings, the depression, or of the PTSD. And, they don’t tell of the courage survivors demonstrate when they work every day to put their lives back together.” - President Obama

They look better than me in heels
There’s nothing wrong with being pro-life or being pro-choice, conservative or liberal, religious or atheist, BUT there is something wrong when you try to force your beliefs (or lack thereof) on other people.
don’t mean to start a fight…but babe? aren’t you forcing the belief that i shouldn’t force my beliefs on others on me?
