I need feminism because a girl was made fun of for not shaving her armpits. 
I need feminism because a boy was harassed for wearing mascara. 
I need feminism because i’m not allowed to not wear a bra around the house because my nipples will show (through my shirt) 
I need feminism because I was taught how to not be raped and my brother was taught nothing 
I need feminism because of the girls in my school who “aren’t feminists because they don’t hate men.”

We need feminism for everyone. 

YES

just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time

it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness

thanks

So sorry if that’s a bit hard to read. It’s the best I could do for right now, and I really wanted to submit! Here’s what it says: 
I need feminism…
Because I should not have to wonder if my life would be better if I was the opposite gender. 
Because I do not deserve to be called ‘weak’ or ‘inferior’ just because of my gender.
Because I should not be viewed as an object.
Because I should not be treated as an object.
Because I should be able to wear whatever the hell I want without ‘the risk of provoking’ other people’s sex drives. 
Because I should be able to walk down the street without being cat-called and feeling intimidated. 
Because I shouldn’t be afraid to be myself and speak my mind!
BECAUSE YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN SANDWICH.

Does it bother anyone else that there are parts of your life you don’t remember? You have done and said things that you don’t even know about anymore. That means you don’t even have the right perception of yourself because you don’t even fully know who you are. However, something that you’ve forgotten about could be a prominent memory in somebody else’s mind. It trips me out.

And a lot of people tend to forget,
that it is quite hard,
to do simple tasks,
when you hate yourself to the point,
where just getting out of bed,
is a struggle in itself.

I need feminism because whenever I start talking to a guy, they think they are entitled to my body and ask me for nude photos or sex.
I then have to make up an excuse because I am afraid that if I simply say “no”, they will no longer respect me or they will label me as a “bitch”.

"I need FEMINISM because when I was 13 I was coerced into having sex. Afterward I was labelled a SLUT.  I never told my family or the authorities, I was too ashamed of myself. My abuser continued to force himself on me periodically over the next year, until I moved to TX. I BELIEVED I was to blame until very recently.
I need Feminism because I am more than a sex object.
I need Feminism because 50 “no’s” then a “yes” is still a NO.”
