Hey, women against feminism: You know who needs gender equality? Men.
By Jef Withonef
By now most people have seen this piece of drivel, 15 Sassy Photos Show Why These Women are Rejecting the Feminist Movement. Sassy, for the love of all that’s holy, someone actually referred to a rebuttal of feminism by calling those who do “sassy.”
Yessir, these broads are spitfires. It’s gonna take a real cowboy to tame these fillies.
Moments like these remind me of my favorite J.R.R. Tolkien quote. Speaking of The Shire, he said, “They were, in fact, sheltered, but they had ceased to remember it.” Many of the women in that article look quite young, having grown up in the world that feminism fought to build.
They may think they don’t need it, but their signs show that they clearly do.
The tearing down of the patriarchy has a long way to go.
Not to mention …
You know who else needs feminism? Men. Men like me. And today I thought I’d enlist some of my fellow male feminists to make our own signs.
“I do need feminism! Because unlike others that lay claim to ‘critical thinking’ I can actually read the data!! Facts are facts. We have a long way to go!”
In direct response to #5 on the sassy list, “I don’t need feminism because I am capable of CRITICAL THINKING and I do not need other women representing ME.”
“I need feminism because my father made me read Germaine Greer when I was 13. Ever since, I have women friends (not just girl friends — real friends — You should try — It’s great).”
