S&M: Feminism – “Equality” and “Equity” are two very different things

After seeing the “Women against Feminism” page somehow slip into her news feed, Sadie O’Grady, blood boiling, felt she needed to respond…


Well, social media, this week you just made my blood boil.

The “Women against Feminism” page just happened to pop up in my news feed, shared by a friend of a friend.

Seriously, what the…?

What I find so offensive about this page is a complete lack of understanding in regards to what “Feminism” actually is. Perhaps these young women have been so indoctrinated by the patriarchal media and advertising landscape that they really are that naïve.

If you think feminism is about man-hating, then clearly you don’t know the definition.

“Equality” and “Equity” are two very different things.

Check out posts on Tumblr of young women holding signs purporting to have some kind of idea about what “feminism” stands for…


C’mon – these “women” really need to educate themselves in regards to the subjugation of their gender.

Hey ladies, looks like you all have access to the Internet, perhaps you had an education (though one would wonder at the poor grammar and spelling on your posts), maybe you still have your genitalia un-mutilated so you can experience orgasm. Do you have access to clean water in your area? Hey there girl! Yo! Bitches and Hos! Are you being sold for a dollar on the sex slave streets of Cambodia at 11? Perhaps you don’t get stoned in your neck of the woods for not satisfying your “boyfriend that treats you right.” Hey there slapper! Why don’t you shave your armpit hair, you feminazi freak, and get into that size-8 bikini and give people something attractive to look at while you are advertising a car. Do you sluts vote? Because some feminist suffragette frigid whore got you that right. Don’t worry! You lush tramps can get in to the Public Bar now.

Oh, and excuse the language – all of these terms are common vernacular for describing WOMEN.

Perhaps in your Euro-centric narcissistic bubbles you are completely equal to the other people in your life.

Yeah, we don’t need feminism, right?
