Feminism on Internet

Internet is an abode to a large variety of people, people of every kind, from every nook and corner of the world. The latest fad among the Internet users is Feminism, something which is rarely used in the sense it is meant to be.

Feminism

Go out on Facebook or Quora or any other social network for that matter, worshipped are people who call themselves feminists, feminists who shout their heart out to give this world to women.

Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the “EQUALITY” of the sexes. See that word in CAPS, yes that word which is spelled as e-q-u-a-l-i-t-y; well, this is what feminism is supposed to be.

Indian society has been patriarchal since forever and it is due to this primarily, that feminism finds its relevance. Yes, women are not treated on equal footing with men. Yes, women still lack the same treatment as men and this is what feminists should strive for, same treatment as men!

Expecting respect for just being a woman and advocating for equal rights don’t go together. Women cry their heart out when their salary is lesser than men but the same girl would hold the “I am a lady” banner when it comes to working under harsh conditions. So, get your shit straight feminists, else this whole movement would fail to see the light of day.

    You make a good point that achieving equality doesn’t mean you will be better off in every single way. The feminists I’ve met, however, seem to understand that.

      You have been lucky mate! I have met some “self proclaimed feminists” who can’t digest this simple thing. It would be only logical that I don’t call them feminists, but pseudo-feminists.
