Myth: Feminists are man haters. Fact: Feminists are fighting for gender equality. They are fighting for both men and women to be seen as equal in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of society. Some women may hate men. Some of them may be feminists. Some of them may not be. Most feminists do not hate men.
Myth: Being feminine is unfeminist. Fact: You can wear make-up, shave, and wear a bra and still be a feminist. Or you can do none of those things. That’s the whole point of feminism. It’s your choice. No one should be telling you what is and isn’t socially acceptable for your gender.
Myth: Feminists all hold the exact same beliefs. Fact: Outside of the overall belief of gender equality, feminists can vary quite a bit on their thoughts and opinions.
Myth: Only women can be feminists. Fact: Anyone can be a feminist.
Whenever I listent to CocoRosie I am reminded of you. I believe its mostly because they're weird and it's hard for people on the outside of things to relate them you so people end up hating on something they don't understand. So when I see people sending you hate because of your armpit hair, nude photos, or things you say its really because they don't understand you or the person you are at all. I think you are a very splendid person and as weird as you are it's quite refreshing and lovely.
Hi, I'm sorry to bring up such a subject I just want a bit of help. I was raped about a year ago, loads of rumours went around about me saying it wasn't rape was just memaking it up so my boyfriend at the time didn't think I cheated on him. My boyfriend broke up with me went round and told people I admtted to him that i cheated. They then tried to contact the person who raped me, and spoke to him about it. my rapists has now got back in contact some how and is texting me. what do I do?
Oh dear, that sounds like a bit of a mess. I am so sorry this has happened to you, and that people are butting their stupid noses in your business.
Can I just let it be known; I fucking abhor people who feel it’s in any way their right (if they’re not directly involved) to comment on a situation like rape and draw their own conclusion.
Can you press charges of any kind to your rapist? If not, tell get a new phone, a new number, block them on every social networking site you can; do not give them a way to contact you. It’s horrifying that they think after what they’ve done to you, they have some kind of right to talk to you? What planet are they on?
I’m always ready to lend an ear, should you need someone to talk to. You’re not alone ♥
