I am so beyond tired of people claiming to have my best interests at heart trying to tell me how I’m allowed to think and feel.
I’m tired of “activists” spreading lies to try to make me feel like I’m too delicate and fragile to handle LIFE, all while claiming to do so in the name of “empowering” me.
I’m tired of people half my age trying to tell me how the world works, and what’s best for me as a woman, when most of them are still living out of mommy and daddy’s wallet, have little to no responsibilities in life, and are still guided by the same level of understanding of the opposite sex that they appear to legitimately believe in “cooties”.
I’m tired of watching people be told that they aren’t the women they feel they are, and are just “men trying to invade womens’ spaces”.
I’m tired of watching people be told that they’re “traitors to their gender”, and that their personal identity is just a way of gaining “male privilege”.
I’m tired of watching people using gender as an excuse for bullying, violence, and even murder.
I’m tired of watching people using gender as some form of exemption from accepting blame, guilt, or responsibility for their own words and actions.
I’m tired of being told I have “internalized misogyny” for not blindly following the almighty “cult of the vagina” masquerading around as “feminism” these days.
I’m tired of people literally denying my existence simply because I ACTUALLY THINK FOR MYSELF.
I’m tired of people telling me they want me to be empowered as a woman, and then demonizing me when my ways of doing so don’t fit into their definition of “empowerment” (which, nowadays, is little more than “You can’t question what I do, and you have to do what I say, because I’m a woman, and I can accuse you of anything I want to if you don’t, because our society has made it so only women receive sympathy, and will automatically side with me, even if I’m a disgusting excuse for a human being, and completely in the wrong.”)
I’m tired of people that claim to be standing for equality ignoring when injustices are done to anyone that isn’t them.
I’m tired of privileged women that say they want to stop the oppression of all women, but never seem to mention anything beyond what happens on their own doorstep.
I’m tired of people making it even harder for me to be taken seriously as a woman, because their actions have given the world reason to distrust us.
I’m tired of people who can’t seem to differentiate between the terms “feminist”, and “chauvinist”.
I’m just completely and utterly tired of today’s “feminism”.
