I need feminism because I’m only 16 years d and am being told how to behave, dress and live my life in order to not ‘ruin myself’ for my husband. AS IF that will be my only accomplishment in life.

A video I made inspired by this blog, and sharing some of the reasons why I need feminism.

Because I shouldn’t be called a slut for having sex with my boyfriend or someone I just met or an old friend. I need feminism because its my body and I should be able to decide who can and can’t touch me. I need feminism because I get looked down upon for having sex but the guy I have sex with gets a high five. I need feminism because I shouldn’t feel ashamed for liking sex.

I need feminism because…
People think that I’m a VIRGIN because I can’t get any, not because its MY CHOICE about MY BODY!

I need feminism because… 
My mother’s co-worker (male) threatened to quit his job because my mom was his boss. 
(My mom still is in her position of being his boss after refusing to change her position, although some people urged her to do so.)

I am not allowed to go to certain places because ‘there are lots of men’ there.

My boyfriend was telling me what his friend had told him about a girl that the friend used to live with. Apparently she would sit post-shower in the kitchen and put her feet up on the table, so at certain angles you got a full view of her genital area. 
My bf told me that his friend had said it was “untidy, like the Gaza strip”. When I furrowed my brow a little, trying to connect the image of the Gaza Strip with genitalia, he said “you know, it was torn apart?” 
I then said that that sounded more like she’d had FGM or something. What did he exactly mean? What does tidy even refer to? Cause I was thinking just her pubic hair or something and failing to see how that is like the Gaza Strip, unless her landing strip wasn’t well shaped anymore?
So he tried to compare it to an “unpacked donner kebab”  To which I said “that’s not particularly helpful either” and I asked “do guys really compare women’s vaginas to donner kebabs and the Gaza Strip?” and he said well, no, but it’s just a joke and it’s a common one (so I guess what he should have said is, “yes”!) 
I said, well 100 years ago the “n word” was still a common term but that didn’t make it appropriate. Obviously, “one is not like the other” because one is a joke. 
I told him that actually I found it offensive to think that someone would be comparing vaginas to the grossest meat on earth and that it’s no fucking wonder that vagino and labioplasties are on the rise.
He got exasperated and said that I have to turn everything into a platform and it is just a common joke*. He tried googling kebabs to show me, but got caught up on the fact that “unpacked kebab” was in the Urban Dictionary, as though that made it better.
He probably told his friend about our exchange.
"Yeah, but she’s always been like that though," is what my bf said his friend would tell him.


*I fail to see the humour in the joke - he couldn’t even explain it to me. Therefore it is not a joke but merely the derogatory comparison I took it to be.

We need feminism because when my 17 year old cousin took advantage of a 26 year old wasted girl at a party, everyone’s reaction shouldn’t have been:“Boys will be boys”
or, “She was dressed like a slut anyway”
And everyone shouldn’t have called me an asshole for “cockblocking” when I told him to get off of her.

I Need Feminism Because:
1: I shouldn’t have to be sacred of KIDNAPPING or RAPE every time I pass a car, truck, van, or MAN. 
2: I shouldn’t be told the “maybe I should go into fashion instead” when I say I want to be a doctor. 
3: I shouldn’t have to wear gunk on my face to avoid criticism just to be criticised for wearing makeup. 
4: THIS IS STILL AN ISSUE.

I need feminism, because a 16-yer-old girl was violently raped by the group of men in Russia. Almost everyone is blaming the girl right now, not the rapists.

I am a feminist because:
my sister thinks it’s weird for me to not want to get married and have kids
when moving her into an ivy league college the campus store sold rape whistle keychains, and we felt the need to buy her one
dress codes
my tweet about gender equality got 1 favorite and my other about hating school got 10
the amount of objectification of women in the media
there is still not equal pay for women in the media
a nail polish has been made to test for date rape drugs and it is needed
"she was asking for it"
"men can’t be raped"
"boys will be boys"
it makes sense

I need feminism because my friend doesn’t believe the act of me having my breast grabbed by a stranger to be sexual harassment because I was in a club.
