What should really be your style?

 

The word “feminism” has been misunderstood for the longest of time despite of feminists repeatedly  stating what it means. This misinterpretation often seems quiet intentional as despite of constantly insisting that feminism stands for gender equality it is often misunderstood as something that involves hating men and considering women superior. As the approach of stating what it is has not worked out so well, it becomes necessary to state what it is not.

 

  1. The Belief That Women Are Superior

As mentioned earlier, a large group of people consider feminism as celebration of womanhood and establishment of their superiority. But to be honest, if you pay attention closely to felinity as a construct you will figure out that there is not much to celebrate. Being a woman has much more of disadvantages than advantages. Higher risk of sexual abuse, economical disadvantage, intimate partner violence and denial of basic human rights in several places along with a bunch of other negative things sum up the experience of women. General stereotype of feminism is considered that women consider men as inferior being, but in reality feminism says that being a woman or gender non-conforming person should be as good as being a man but currently, it isn’t.

  1. That Someone Has Negative Views Of Men

The major misinterpretation of feminism is that it promotes the idea of men being bad. On the contrary feminism literally stands against all such generalisations. Men being aggressive, impulsive, harsh and dominating is one of many cultural stereotypes that feminism aims to fight. Hating on men is a completely different thing which is know as misandry which men stand against. Along with that feminism also realises that men has certain privilege which can be used for good or bad depending upon the choice they make. Just like any other social justice movement, feminism stands for helping the marginalised and the ones who are more harmed. The current state is the one where men have more power, which means they are more likely to harm and the only aim of feminism is to dismantle that power not to hurt men but to avoid them from hurting others.
