Woman lists reasons why she isn’t a feminist

A lady has taken to Twitter to reveal the reasons why she isn’t a feminist.

According to the lady, she doesn’t want to identify build identify with a cause that has built its foundation on the idea that women are victims.

Also, she said she’s doesn’t think she can affect a lasting change while holding on to a victim complex.

She tweeted;


1. Because I think that despite men having a more privileged role historically, men’s rights and issues are something we can’t ignore.

2. Because I don’t want to identify with a cause that has built its foundation on the idea that as a woman, I am a victim.

3. Because I don’t think I can affect real, lasting change while holding on to a victim complex and internalizing the idea that in this day and age, I am inherently disadvantaged everywhere I go and in everything I do.

4. Because I don’t think trivial things like “cat-calling” and “slut-shaming” should be considered legitimate social issues.

5. Because I think that young boys being abducted and forced to fight as child soldiers in Africa are equally as important as young girls being forced into arranged marriages in the Middle East.

6. Because I’m pro-life.

7. Because men and women are, in fact, very different, and “equal” doesn’t mean “identical.”

8. Because I know the textbook definition of the word feminism, but rarely do I see it being lived out.

9. Because I won’t be told that I’m being mistreated and oppressed, when I’m not.

10. Because this is the 21st century. Equality exists in this country, and women have taken advantage of it. I am grateful for the rights that historical feminism has granted me, but it’s run its course.

11. Because I won’t perpetuate gender inequality by pretending it’s still as big of an issue as it was a hundred years ago.

12. Because I shouldn’t have to constantly justify my decision to not identify as a feminist, and be insulted and looked down upon as a result.

13. Because we can’t afford to divide the fight for social justice and equality on a basis of gender.

14. Because injustice is something that reaches much, much further than male and female.
