Femin-awesome

artyfartypyjamaparty:

Suf, zeikerig en allang niet meer nodig: allemaal vooroordelen over feminisme. Terecht? Definitely not. Na een tijdje radiostilte maakt het feminisme zijn come back en iedereen die er van overtuigd is dat dit achterhaald is, heeft het mis.

Waarom we back in business zijn? Te beginnen omdat…

Net als je je een beetje ongemakkelijk begint te voelen over je eeuwige mening over mannen versus vrouwen, komt Queen B uit met een tekst waar eigenlijk niks tegenin te brengen is.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller
We say to girls: “You can have ambition, but not too much
You should aim to be successful, but not too successful
Otherwise, you will threaten the man”
Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is most important
Now, marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are
Feminist: a person who believes in the social political, and economic equality of the sexes
