The 'I Don't Need Feminism' Signs Show Just How Little People Understand About The Feminist Movement

By

We might be unsure if there's a real war on women occurring today, but there is definitely some fighting over the ill-understood "feminism."

Although many feminists have come out on the defensive about the inclusivity of the word/movement/whatever you want to call it, other women (let alone men) remain unconvinced.

So much so that young women have recently taken to various social media channels to declare: "I don't need feminism." The reasons are numerous, including:

"Because I believe in equality not entitlements and supremacy" "Because I don't think being a woman is a disadvantage" "Because I respect men. I refuse to demonize them and blame them for my problems"

Maybe it's the feminist in me, but I just don't see any of these admonitions as something that would or should exclude a female from adopting the feminist title.

Third-wave feminism would likely applaud these individuals's efforts in establishing their own personal beliefs, outside of any pre-determined system.

So we've coming to a point where being anti-feminist is actually feminist? My head hurts.
