“We don’t need feminism”


we don’t need feminism” they say, angrily proclaiming their dislike of so called ‘feminaizs’,
“we don’t need feminism” they say, besides ‘feminists are just a bunch of spurned middle aged woman protesting about the unfairness of gingerbread men”
“we don’t need feminism” they say, besides, “sexism no longer exists”

“we don’t need feminism” they say as 39,000 girls are forced into child marriages every day.
“we don’t need feminism” they say as in the uk 85,000 women are raped every year and 400,000 are sexually assaulted
“we don’t need feminism” they say, while worldwide 62% of females are still denied education
“we don’t need feminism” they say, before laughing at rape jokes or slut shaming a girl, before cat calling and body shaming and harassment.

“we don’t need feminism” they say, forgetting feminism fights the patriarchy not them, forgetting feminism helps all.

“we don’t need feminism” they say, whilst men are three times as likely die from suicide.
“we don’t need feminism” they say, whilst men as more likely to lose custody of their child due to unfair gender stereotypes.

“we don’t need feminism” they say, while girls are taught to beautiful, while boys are taught to be strong, whilst woman are shamed for enjoying sex and men are shamed if they don’t, whilst the word ‘pussy’ has become synonymous for weakness and balls for strength, whilst woman are told to be calm so not to come across as irrational or emotional whilst men are told to be strong and man up.

“we don’t need feminism” they say, yet a man who stated you should ‘grab them by the pussy’ is president of the united states of America.

“we don’t need feminism” they say, yet in the one minute in which you’ve been reading this 28 girls have been forced into marriage.

And yet despite all these statistics I’m sure some people still won’t agree, “we don’t need feminism” they’ll say, well I for one strongly disagree.
