I need feminism because my boyfriend (of 3.5 yrs!) gets pissed and tells me ‘not to talk to him’ every time I mention feminism! He’s also disgusted when I don’t remove my underarm/leg/pubic hair!!! It’s so annoying. I don’t know how to address these issues with him. He just gets really angry, yells at me, and storms out of the room. It makes me sad that he’s like that and it makes me feel like he thinks I’m stupid. He thinks feminism is stupid and basically shouldn’t exist. I told him if I have to shave, so does he. And he justifies it as, “I’m a guy. I don’t need to shave. We’re supposed to be hairy, we have balls!”
