A 'Bad Feminist'??

Hello everybody!

This is inspired by my Buzzfeed, the YouTube channel which I binge watch all the time because they have so many colours.

This might be a controversial topic but, is there really such thing as being a bad feminist? I've seen this being said around YouTube by angry people storming over from the depths of tumblr and it just annoys me that people expect that if you believe in something then every single thing you say has to follow certain guidelines or it makes you a terrible person. I do not recall there being a handbook to Feminism being given to you as you proclaim your identity which is blessed by the ghost of Emily Davison. Come on people, just because you don't support one woman and her actions it doesn't make you a bad feminist, just because you didn't wear your feminist T-shirt to work it doesn't mean your a bad feminist, just because you don't have "I'm a feminist" tattooed on your forehead it doesn't mean your a bad feminist! 

Let us just recall the definition of feminism for a second:
the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Oh look there, if you believe in what is said up there and you support and take action towards this cause I think that you're a good feminist personally. I do not speak for all feminist because I am a 14 year old, Teen Wolf and The 1975 obsessed school girl who has had enough of other feminists bashing other feminists and putting down other people for apparently being 'bad'. This post might make no sense at all and you are probably thinking "wtf is this girl saying" but I do have a lot to learn and I've only been on this earth since May 2001. Yes I have experienced extremely sexist incidents with men and women and I feel like I want to talk about it. I'm lucky enough to be born in a generation which in a way is moving forward and are getting a bit more stupid e.g. what are thoooosseeeee (argh it just makes me want to knock my head continuously on a plank of wood) but I feel as though my blog is a place for me to share my opinions which don't quite make sense.

So this post summed up; please stop calling people bad feminists; my generation is 50 shades of messed up as I said before with what are thoosseeeee; I am not very good at formulating my opinion in written form; I'm a feminist and happy.

  1. Yes to this!!! In my opinion, feminism has turned by some people, into a way that can be hurtful to others. What ever happened to just standing up for what we believed in and working together to make our voices heard?!

    1. Exactly, I think it is about time we stop moving backwards and start supporting each other!

  2. YES! What really frustrates me is when people shame women and girls for liking traditionally "feminine" things. There is absolutely nothing wrong with matching stereotypes about your gender, and those who do can be just as strong feminists as those who don't.

    Thanks for your comment on my review of The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly, by the way! I so hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
