However you aren't held out gun point and forced to shave your legs, arms, underarms etc. Stop complaining. If you hate shaving, don't do it. Don't say your oppressed because you have to get rid of body hair, when it's your own choice. Also decide not to shave good for you. Don't think your making a huge feminist statement. Your doing it for yourself.

    "I get funny looks because I have hairy armpits"is not oppression against women any more than my getting funny looks for wearing a sombrero covered in pink sequins is oppression.

    Jesus christ get over yourselves.

    -Jafar

    Friendly reminder that it can be more than funny looks, and having to shave to avoid public shaming and ridicule isn’t being FORCED to do anything, but it CAN be for someone’s mental health.

    No one is going to kill you for it, but having people treat you like shit because of how “poorly you take care of yourself” can be demeaning and very hurtful. Oppressed isn’t the right word for it, though.

    women are still expected to shave and such though, and that is a problem, and noting this doesn’t require comments such as “get over yourselves”. 

    There isn’t some dichotomy between “being held at gun point” and “perfectly okay”. There are a lot of toxic pressures of masculinity and femininity in our society, and individuals not being physically forced to follow the standards under threat of actual bodily harm doesn’t mean that these issues aren’t serious and important.

    Exactly. Body hair might not seem as much of an issue on its own but it’s still a part of gender roles. It’s indicative of a wider issue.

    I don’t particularly think not shaving is some big feminist statement either but women have every right to complain if people are coming up to them and being rude or nasty to them for how they choose to present themselves in a way that is totally harmless and nobody else’s business. I have no problems with people having preferences or opinions on others’ bodies as long as you don’t go out of your way to belittle somebody for it/force it on them, but the thing is, people still do it; they want to put women (and men) back in their little gender boxes where they think they belong, because that’s how we’re socialised, to conform to certain expectations, and that’s the point where it becomes a problem.

    I’m glad you took our recommendations into account when building version 2.0.

    this post was shit the first time he posted it and it definitely hasn’t gotten better ever since oh my god

    Give the guy some credit, he’s gone on to specify “radical misandrist” feminists rather than attacking us in general, and included other things alongside physical construction as measures of contribution, which were the two main issues in the first attempt.

    this is true 

    very progressive

    You two just got caught in a lie.

    My first post did not attack women in general. It attacked radfems. Everyone else saw that. You’re so scared of me right now that you don’t even fucking DARE repost that original blog. The moment you do, you’ll show your own supporters why they turned on you in the first place.

    You fucking chickenshit liars.

    Nobody said you attacked women. When I said “us” I meant feminist, not women, because as you should know by now I am counting under the first heading but not the second. Several times in our last conversation you criticised “feminists” in general, and contrasted them with the “men” who had to build things, as well as obsessively focusing on building as the fundamental measure of value because your egocentric view of the universe prioritises your own profession. You’ve corrected that here, which I applauded. Your response to that has been classy as ever.

    They exist in a world whose foundation men could easily yank out from beneath them, not by violence or armed rebellion - but simply by walking away. Walk away from the power plants. Day one Oxford’s lights go out. Ain’t enough women who even want those jobs, to get them back up and running. 

    There are more quotations like this, suggesting that your criticism is much more gender-based than you’d like us to believe. You weren’t just contrasting radfems with reasonable people, you were contrasting them with men. You also went on to criticise feminism in general, particularly male feminists. You wanted to portray yourself as valiantly fighting against extremism, but soon revealed that your enmity here goes a lot deeper. 

    I don’t know what you want me to reblog, but I assure you I don’t have something saved in my drafts that I’m terrified to post. If you like to think of yourself as threatening and scary that’s your own prerogative, but it’ll only help us continue to find you mildly ridiculous. Nobody’s scared to post anything. I also have no idea what you mean by “your own supporters turning on you”, because I’m not feeling very “turned on” right now. (No, not in that way either.)

    Oh god, it’s back

    Yes, it’s back. And I’m going to keep hammering your kind until you get it in your thick skulls just how useless you are.

    None of you were able to refute me the first time. You got your asses kicked over the goal posts. Now I’m hitting you with it again. And I will never stop.

    We pointed out some significant problems with your original post, and as you have taken these into account when remaking it you can’t pretend our points didn’t hit the target. None of us are radical, misandrist feminists, so this attack isn’t even directed at “our kind”.

  9. I changed my URL

    egalitarian-feminism:

    So I changed my URL again (Previously : feminists-of-thefourthwave.tumblr.com) because people tend to think that being a feminist means I hate men and their rights so I changed it to Egalitarian-feminism.tumblr.com because no one would take me seriously otherwise.

    I hope people will understand now that I am not about the “Girls rule; boys drool” thing. I want people to know that I am an egalitarian who is aware of the fact that even though we are gaining equality among the genders, not everything is fair yet. I recognize the fact that all genders are unequal in different matters, which is why I still consider myself to be a feminist but I also like covering subjects other than gender. 

    By calling myself both an egalitarian and a feminist, I’m hoping it will be easier for people to grasp the concept of my blog by reading the name. 

    Have a great week, everyone.

    That’s what I took “fourth wave” to mean, anyway: a more egalitarian feminism, concerned for all genders.
