I need feminism because every day my customers assume that the older, male security guard who helps me, knows my job better and/or is my boss. He works for me.

I need feminism because my mother started slut-shaming me when I was 10, before entering puberty or knowing how sex feels. She repeatedly called me a whore/slut/hooker and forced me to show her my genitalia to see if I still had a hymen.
I need feminism because while I write this I am afraid people would blame me.

We need feminism because…women gamers are so often targeted with chauvinist behavior online, well-meaning and respectable men have to become self-conscious of their words and tone so not to be labeled as sexist. Feminism’s true purpose isn’t to alienate individuals; it’s to bring common equality to everyone. While gaming, everyone in the chat call suddenly become stiff and normal upon hearing my female voice. It was only until after someone said, “Just treat her like one of the bro’s” was everyone able to stop being on guard in fear of retaliation.
Women don’t want to hear demeaning comments - no person does. But you don’t need to put on an act either. If you’re not a jerk, you’re not one of the people that feminism stands up against. Instead, you’d stand alongside with us if you just treat us as “one of the bro’s.”

I need feminism because the shade of lipstick I wear shouldn’t determine whether or not I am ‘asking for it’. I don’t wear red lipstick because of this remark that was made by a friend.

I need feminism because I am a 14 year old girl. My mother educates me on sex more than most moms do. I am my friends’ main sex-ed source.
They didn’t know that someone touching you without permission is a crime!

We need feminism because the simple fact that I am very happy as a woman who live her dream, wants kids, and have a wonderful boyfriend, DOESN’T mean that all other women don’t deserve the same Favor! Stop being selfish!
All women should be able to do everything they want without any questions, Choises are theirs, and no one elses. Their happiness does not spoil mine. Every body should be free to not have kids or not getting married, or having their dream job or anything they want, the same way I did everything that I wanted
Sorry for the bad english >_<

We need feminism because women are catcalled and publicly harrassed every minute. It doesn&#8217;t end there. Just last week, my best friend, a hard-working woman, watched a totally underqualified male get promoted ABOVE her at her job. Upon confronting her boss about this, he replied, &#8220;I would have promoted you, but I just don&#8217;t know how I feel about a woman being at such a high position.&#8221; 

She has since quit her job.

All in all, WE NEED FEMINISM. Anti-feminists say they want a &#8220;gender-equal&#8221; environment. But they don&#8217;t realize that the society we live in now is NO WHERE CLOSE TO gender-equal. Feminists are working to change that and make our society gender-equal. What are we doing wrong? Why are so many anti-feminists against us?

"I need feminism because when a girl was sexually assaulted by her boyfriend while she was asleep, people told her she was overreacting, it wasn&#8217;t an assault because he&#8217;s her boyfriend, and it&#8217;s just the way men are, and it was her own fault if she didn&#8217;t let him have sex often enough. Both men and women said this. One woman even said the girl shouldn&#8217;t tell him that it wasn&#8217;t okay to do this, she shouldn&#8217;t call him a rapist, this would hurt him, since he "isn&#8217;t a real rapist" as her boyfriend. If it&#8217;s your partner, it isn&#8217;t rape, apparently? Seriously?"

I need feminism because&#8230;I am 14. This was a day before I was going on vacation for a long time. After I told my ex-boyfriend to stop making out with me 3 times, he continued, claiming he wanted to make &#8220;the most of this day.&#8221;
Women should not be pressured to act on men&#8217;s sexual desire without their own consent.

I need feminism because of backlash regarding domestic violence.  I defended myself against my boyfriend when he started beating me, and was put in the emergency room with lacerations on my back, four stitches in my head, and a damaged cranial spine.  I did not cause him any serious physical harm except hitting him in the ear, but he was not even placed in handcuffs while I was arrested and taken to jail.  In there I met women in similar circumstances, defending themselves or their children, then going to jail with black eyes and bruises.  The rate of women being arrested for domestic violence has skyrocketed since the ’70s, when feminists campaigned against it.  Wonder why?  (A cop at the hospital actually told me I was asking for it, without even knowing any of the details.)

I need feminism because fantasy & sci-fi literature is not a male privilege. 

Also, a woman has invented Sci-Fi. Fuck all those who think it’s a male privilege.

I need feminism because I start college in two weeks and have been told to &#8220;try not to get raped&#8221;, as if being raped would somehow be my fault or my attempt.
