False Feminism.

​​So I hear these so called “feminists” scream about gender equality every other day, I watch them rise up like dough with too much yeast than needed when there’s a case of inequality. You know the thing is that most times, when you hear both sides of the story you realize it’s not even inequality. They’ve just decided to exaggerate or even ignore some facts to make it an issue of inequality.

The other day I over heard a guy say he was hit by this very bossy girl. Oh, you didn’t know women hit men too? Well, they do. What did the “feminist” say? “She was probably upset, you must have done something really terrible. I’m sure she has warned you about this before, just give her time to heal. She’ll come around.”

Let me take you to another conversation I heard. A girl was wailing and making so much noise about how he hit her. What did this same madam “feminist” from the first conversation say this time? “What did you do? Infact, it doesn’t matter what you did. A man should never lay his hands on a woman no matter what she does. He should be able to control his temper, she is not his punching bag.” She went on…
Hol’ up. How come a woman is entitled to anger but a man isn’t? Because from these responses, that’s just what it seems like right?

Don’t get me wrong now, I’m not for men hitting women. Not at all. Neither am I for women hitting men. I’m female and so I’m all for girl power, women empowermet, sisterhood and all that, but what’s equality?
Hold on. What’s this feminism thing all over the place?

Feminism: The doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of equality of the sexes

False Feminism: Man- hate. Anything the man does is crime against the woman

The reaction in the first conversation and that in the second is not equality at all.
People preach this feminism thing like the male gender doesn’t matter. Like the females get some passes or have some certain entitlements but the males don’t. In reality, it’s supposed to be equal rights of women to men.

In the world of false feminism, it’s okay for a lady to hit a man but the whole world stops when a man hits a lady.
You dont hear a “feminist” bark when she’s given certain special treatments that favour her.

A false feminsists always plays the victim.

The men have tears to cry too. Men have emotions too.

Women need to understand that not every action taken against them is because of their gender. Sometimes it’s just life being unfair. Do you ever think it could have happened if you were not female? Exactly.

I once heard someone say “Feminism is a much calmer movement than people think” and I agree.
“Ladies, it’s not only about you, men are hurting too.”  – Studio of modé. Truer words have never been said.

Who else thinks alot of  feminists go about this feminism thing the wrong way? Share your experience(s)

What do you think the problem is?

    Thought about the same thing. You got this, Faith. I watched Emma Watson’s speech at the United Nations titled,’I am a feminist’. I couldn’t but give her a round of applause.

    I also like to add that, it appears that many self-acclaimed feminists do not understand what feminism is about. I get appalled when I hear women shouting ‘what a man can do, a woman can do better’. Yo! Hollup y’all! This ain’t no competition. If you want to empower yourselves, do so, but not in the name of putting the men down. These same women would scream ‘sacrilege’ if men rose up to say ‘what a woman can do, a man can do better’.
    My proposal is this, everyone has abilities, strengths and weaknesses. If you can, you can, if you can’t, you can’t. What any one can do, let him or her be successful.

    Another thing is that we should help ourselves; men and women. Let us allow ourselves to shine as our creator intended (sic) for us (Matthew 5:16).
    There’s a lot to say, but I’ll stop here.
