there are two types of people who reject the feminist label
- women who are passionate and well educated about feminist issues but don’t like the term because mainstream feminism primarily focuses on white cishet women.
- people with the internalized misogyny levels of female MRAs on reddit that think women are 100% equal just because they have the right to vote

at monash university in melbourne the women’s department had a bake sale and cupcakes were one dollar for men and eighty cents for women and seventy cents for trans* people to represent the wage gap and heaps of guys kicked off about it being sexist and that’s how i finally understood how hypocritical and ignorant men’s rights activism is
to be fair that is pretty darn sexist… why cant stuff just be EQUAL for everyone?
This is such a good idea!
