Season six is going to be legendary. That’s all I can say.

12 Reasons These Women THINK They Don’t Need Feminism

The bottom line is that feminism supports equal rights for everyone. It obviously supports women’s rights, but it supports men’s rights too! True feminism (not the extremist man-hating stuff) is about getting everyone to be equal. However, a lot of people don’t understand that. And I can’t for the life of me understand the reasons why these women think they don’t need feminism.

One of the things that annoy me the most is when people don’t understand what they’re talking about

Like seriously, how hard is it to do some research and know what the hell you’re arguing about? You’re making your self look like an idiot and you’re spreading your ignorance to other people who don’t know better.

Get some genuine evidence before you write all over the internet how feminism is bad because women shouldn’t be better than men, they should all be equal OR how racism towards “white people” isn’t possible because they supposedly created racism. Educate yourselves.

Ignorance is the enemy of progress.

Why is that you post things that racist white people do with captions such as "stop white people" and make a fuss about that and then are perfectly happy to be racist towards white people? I've seen so much racism to white people being posted by you. I am a huge fan and don't want to annoy you but do you not see how much of a double standard that it. Just because my ancestors owned several of your ancestors isn't a good reason to single white people out as being racist Dont you agree?

milesjai answered:

First of all, where is this racism against white people you speak of? Are white people hurt by negative stereotypes like “coming in 15 mins late with starbucks”? Are white people “stopped randomly” because they looked suspicious coming out of a high end jewlery store? Are white people told their skin is too light to be beautiful? I understand prejudice, but racism against white isn’t possible because racism is systematic oppression put in place by white people, for white people.

And second,

Err, what? “Racism against white people isn’t possible…” Just, wow.

Also, I’m pretty sure that isn’t the definition of racism because the Oxford dictionary describes it like this:

"The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races"

I don’t see anything in there about white people being the source of all racism in the world. Many different people of many different ethnicities can be racist. You can’t just lay the blame for racism on one ethnic group.
