“Oh, I don’t want to go to this ladies’ thing, all we’re gonna talk about is makeup and boys”
“All my friends are boys because they are more interesting”
I cannot believe that some self-proclaimed progressionists (and what’s worse, feminists) have the courage to say that. It’s just as if they were misogynists pretending to dress with feminist skins. It’s as they don’t really understand or realise what they are saying. Of course, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t have male friends, nooo, not at all, it is great to have male friends, but hey, just don’t trash your female friends -if you have any. You are being part of the problem, that problem that is yes, on the one hand masculine (bravo Emma, #HeForShe) but on the other hand, very much feminine.
A while ago I read that in a woman’s career success, the support of other women can be crucial, as could the non-support. Women managers tend to favourite men, whereas men managers tend to favourite men. So, what are we doing? Girls, get your act straight. They said, that it was because we felt less intimidated by men, they had less fear, as if there is no place for 2 women… So what could be the conclusion? That strong independent women are feminist because they know what it is really important, and that those that seem strong but are indeed weak and insecure like to be the girls within the males -and just as a top-up, they want a little of adulation? Hmm, maybe, maybe not, let’s tease a little these wolves with feminist skins…
