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!

"I need feminism because even after I tell a man I’m a lesbian he continues to make advances on me and tells me I "haven’t met the right man yet."

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 I’ve been on testosterone for 6 months and am never read as female, but I am still terrified that other men  are going to rape me just because I have a vagina."

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.

"I need feminism because I was at the dollar store with a cart full of candy bars to sell for a fundraiser at work, and people in the line were pointing, whispering, giggling, and some started to "moo" and "oink" at me. The male co-worker who did those same purchases last year had no such thing happen to him."

I need feminism because when I went on a school trip I was grabbed by 3 drunk guys who all attempted to kiss me. When I got away I ran to my friend (male) shaking and crying, he hugged me and told me &#8220;I hope you know it&#8217;s not your fault&#8221;, when we went to go tell our teacher (female) she looked at me and said &#8220;well look at what you&#8217;re wearing&#8221;.

Regardless of what I was wearing I was harassed and the 16-18 year old students that accompanied me on the trip understood that more than the 40 something year old teacher.

We need feminism because there never was a reason to create manism,
We needed to fight for simple rights, when these where simply given to men.
