Feminism

Good morning! I hope all of you are well. This morning I really want to touch upon a topic that’s very dear to me: feminism. A couple days ago I came across the greatest picture ever (it’s my lock screen now). It addresses the issue with stereotypes for feminism. There is a notion that all feminists hate men, are homosexual and masculine. I do believe that there are feminists who are extremists and hate men, some feminists are homosexual and some feminists are masculine. But that’s not all feminists. This is not even mentioning the fact that some men are feminists too (which I believe is too often forgotten). I think the issue comes from the discrepancy of what feminism is. Feminism is the want for social, political and economic equality among the sexes. No where in that definition am I, as a feminist, to hate men. As a heterosexual female, for me to say that I hate men is nonsense. I love both men and women, I just believe that we are not being treated equally, and we need to be. Below I have attached the link to a TED talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who I love and she is featured in Flawless by Beyoncé. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
