A SOCIAL media trend #WomenAgainstFeminism is creating controversy overseas, going viral in the US and re-opening debate on how far women have really come.
The movement originated from a Tumblr post in which photos have been posted of women holding up signs explaining why they dont need feminism.
The explanations vary from I do like being feminine, catcalling isnt rape, cooking for my husband is not oppression, I love to be sexy for my man, to I dont need something that tells me the actions of a slut are okay. Heres a few posts we found on Twitter:
The reaction to the posts have varied, with many complaining that the women do not understand feminism, while others suggest that some of the comments are a reasonably fair description of a large, influential, highly visible segment of modern feminism.
One of the women, Danielle Gieger, complained on Facebook that she had received death threats over her post, which said: my self worth is not directly tied to the size of my victim complex!

This idea could go viral.
Maybe critical masses of blacks will decide they don’t need NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, et. al.
Maybe critical numbers of Hispanics will see that La Raza doesn’t do anything for them.
And so on down the list of grievance groups.
Well, what do you know.
Social media is finally good for something.
They are the true feminists.
Maybe women are realizing that men don’t suck after all.
And maybe life is far more satisfying if they’re able to just be themselves and pursue their own goals for their own reasons.
I don’t know that we need a big movement to say we don’t need feminism. I mean, I never did jump on that band wagon as feminism was always embraced by and for liberal women. We were never welcome and when’s the last time a so-called feminist supported and/or defended right-wing or conservative women?
As a woman I’ve been more than a little insulted when I hear the liberal talk about “women’s issues.” Or that women voters are only interested in certain things and I would be screaming, no, no, no! That was self-limiting and small thinking.
I am quite capable of educating myself and adopting an opinion on any issue out there.
Still, there are many people that do condescend to you if you’re a woman and that’s just a fact. I’ve experienced that many times over in the past but then that’s life. Being a strong woman you simply handle it like anything else. And consider the source!
Can you cook? I'm not your maid!
Will you do my laundry? I'm not your maid!
Will you rub my back after a long day? I'm not your whore!
Let's have children together? Hurry Up I need to take a bath!
I love you honey. Pervert!
Women never needed radical feminism. Radical feminism has been a disaster for this country. Steinem, Friedan, the whole lot of them are villainesses not heroines.
A man needs a feminist like a bicycle needs a fish.
Need some catchy hashtags.
Rush puts it best: Feminism was created to mainstream unattractive women. Many women don’t need the representation.
They are the liberated one - unshackled from the dictates of feminazis.
A great site is Ladies Against Feminism, promoting beautiful womanhood.
“Since 2002, LAF has refuted the follies of feminism and promoted a strong, intelligent, biblical view of womanhood. We love femininity and are delighted to share the beauties of the womanly virtues with women all over the world...”
The article says, “Prof Bulbeck said in the late 60s and 70s, when it was illegal to work if you were married and women had to be paid less than men, gender oppression was much more visual.”
It was *illegal* to work in the 1960’s and 1970’s?
Well somebody didn’t tell that to my grandmother... or my mother... or my aunts. WTF?!
Has *anybody* ever heard of this?
And women *had* to be paid less than men? Like by law??
SO I thought, “Well, this is an australian publication,” and did some research.
From what I’ve found, it was expected for married women to stay home, but not illegal for them to work. The history I’m finding goes back to the 1800’s, so I don’t know what country she’s talking about.
I don’t think it was illegal for a woman to work in the 60’s and 70’s
Do their students believe these lies?
There were Puritan women running taverns in the Plymouth Colony before the women back in the UK even had standing in court or to own any property or business. (excepting maybe the nobility)
I’ve have found NO evidence that married women were forbidden to work in any Western nation. Ever. Expected? Encouraged to stay home? Yes.
Illegal?? Not one.
I’m on the WAF FB page a LOT and my daughter has already submitted her photo and we are getting *slammed* by irate feminists. And I mean *SLAMMED*.
Apparently ‘choice’ only works for a feminist if a woman chooses what they want us to choose.
One of the main arguments that the WAFs keep bringing up is the sexism towards MEN.
There are egalitarian woman who see the misandry and sexism and are fighting to be equal, but there are many traditional women that understand that WE can’t be women if the men aren’t honored. The traditional women are also fighting for their right to be women.
One point that’s been noted over and over again is that feminists hate men, but encourage women to *be* male. Cut our hair, compete as men, fight and die as men, etc. Feminists decry the value of a man, but only want traditional male power for women.
It’s an interesting conversation.
An interesting conversation, that in a sane world, would be taking place through a glass partition at an asylum.
"Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish?
