As most feminists online, I, unfortunately, have received my fair share of online hate. In this blog post, I will be listing what people have said to me, and responding to the comments!
1) "You feminists are all just fucking sluts who are on their periods all the time"
First of all, to quote Maurice Moss, "My ears are not a toilet," so please refrain from using that language when speaking to me in a hateful tone; if we're smashing the patriarchy together, however, feel free to swear side-by-side me whilst we link arms and analyze pop-culture together. Also, to quote Belissa Escoloedo and Rhiannon McGavin, "Do not refer to me as a slut. Ever," (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4m3AJamQYM). I'm not certain you completely understand how the female menstrual cycle works; if you're bleeding all the time, I HIGHLY advise you contact a medical official and alert them of this issue. In addition to your lack of understanding of female anatomy, little factoid here, but being on my period does not in any way affect my judgement, if that's what you're insinuating; stay out of my pants.
2) "Women can't drive, especially Asians, science says so, we should take you off the streets"
*INSERT HEAD BANGING AGAINST WALL SOUND HERE* Women can drive. I'm just going to leave it at that; I hope you realize that no matter where you're from, if you consider yourself a woman, you are a woman; there's no need to say "Asians" as if women from Asia aren't women. Women can drive just as well as men can, and I honestly do not know where you've gotten the 'science says so' bit from; unless 'science' is the "EXPIRATION DATE: 1950s" opinion of your grandfather.
3) "All you horny feminists want to do is empower women, that's not what feminism is about, it's so stupid"
Well, I'm not completely sure how to respond to the 'horny' part of that, I don't even think that's a well-known stereotype about feminists; are you making up your own stereotypes about feminists? Alright folks, here we see a new stereotype being born, or a little known one surfacing. Either way, keep your ridiculous, bigoted ideas to yourself, please. Yes, all I want to do is empower women, and listen to slam poetry. And yes, that is exactly what feminism is about. There, now that we've got that settled let's talk about the 'stupid' part of your comment (well that would be the entire comment, but I meant the bit where you actually used the word 'stupid'). Now, due to your poor sentence structuring skills, I can't tell if you're calling feminism stupid, or if you're calling feminists and their want to empower stupid. Either way, your argument is invalid.
Well, as you can see, feminists are hated just for believing that women are people. These aren't all the comments I've received, but I really want to go listen to feminist slam poetry, drink some tea, and empower women. I hope you enjoyed this post, in all probability I'll have another one posted for you soon.
