An equalist believes that men need just as much liberation as women.
A feminist knows that patriarchy is much more destructive to women and therefore its goals prioritize women.
Essentially, it’s like this:
There’s a man and a woman standing side by side, but the man is taller than the woman. How to get them to the same level?
An equalist would give both of them a pedestal to stand on; a feminist would just give one to the woman. The first method doesn’t fix the problem, but the second method does.
Just want to say further that equalists 1) don’t pay attention to how history has structured our current world, and 2) have a huge bloody entitlement complex. Like men have hated women for thousands of years, but feminism has to prove it’s not man-hating to be legitimated because hating
a genderthe male gender is wrong. It’s disgusting that men think they can or should define what equality is for women.
my favorite moment of high school was having to read huck finn out loud in my english class and i quite literally got kicked out of the classroom because i kept reading “respectable african american brother” instead of the n word
"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.
They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.
Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright
One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better.
