I need feminism because this is an actual campaign to sell bottled water.
The main focus here being “feeling dehydrated puts you in a bad mood.” But only if you’re a woman, apparently.
From left to right:
"Escondí el control remoto en el horno"; “I hid the remote control in the oven.”
"Le cambié a la novela en los penales"; "I changed the channel (to watch the telenovela/soap opera) during penalty shootouts."
"Me atravesé en el tiro libre"; "I blocked the TV during the throw-in.”
"Inventé una boda el día del final"; "I made up a wedding on the day of the finals."
"Le hice un drama en el tiempo extra"; "I acted like a drama queen during extra time."
"Le bajé al switch en los penales"; "I turned off the TV during penalty shootouts."

I need feminism because men twice my age leering at me in the street is supposedly a “compliment.”

…and the fact that it makes me feel uncomfortable makes me ‘ridiculous’.

I need feminism because this is the talk I was given immediately after blowing out the candles on my 18th birthday cake:
"You know, you’re 18 now so if you go off with a guy on a motorcycle, in a forest or at night, and something happens…it can be considered the girl’s fault."
It’s my mother who told me this. Happy birthday to me.

Reads: I need feminism because I was told I could be charged with Misdemeanor Assault at 14 because I broke my attackers finger. We were in the Girl’s Locker room when it happened. He wasn’t charged for attacking me because BOYS WILL BE BOYS. He was 22…
NOTE: I wasn’t charged either AND he wasn’t charged for  trespassing on school grounds either.

I need feminism because I was told as a child by my parents and grandparents that if a boy picks on me he really just likes me. When I would complain about a boy bullying me in school and physically hurting me, they would just tell me that it’s a compliment. I was never taught how to fight back if necessary or what treatment I should deem acceptable and unacceptable. 
Then when I grew older - into my teens - my parents strictly reprimanded me for liking and chasing after “bad boys”, including an older guy. I gravitated towards disrespectful men, and my parents blamed me for it. 
They should not have taught me to prefer abusive behavior. It’s no wonder I grew up seeing it as normal.

I need feminism because when I finally found the confidence to speak out about my physically/emotionally/sexually abusive (ex) boyfriend, he told people, including my former best friend of 8 years, that I had “gone crazy”… And they believed him.

I need feminism because when a friend said that single mothers were all “THOTS” and couldn’t celebrate fathers day because of their promiscuity his WIFE defended him and said that all women are responsible for their own safety and that they need to own their problems. They are expecting their first child in a few months… a baby girl. They also deleted the convo on Facebook for no one else to see.

I need feminism because when a teacher at my school sexually assaulted a student, everyone blamed her for being a “hoe.”
There are some really disgusting things people are saying about the girl who was assaulted at my school, for example: “she probably made a move on him and he rejected her so she made everything up.” 
Apparently since the teacher was really funny and cool he doesn’t deserved to be charged? 
Obviously the girl in the situation is blamed for absolutely nothing she did.

I NEED FEMINISM because anti-feminist jokes like “women belong in the kitchen” are NOT funny and remind me of the submissive role I felt I played during my rape.

I need feminism because I shouldn’t have to avoid a guy’s advances after I’d repeatedly said “No” and then be labeled a bitch for my actions.
