I believe in human rights for women, all women. A lot of content in the post has happened to me personally so I relate to it.
However, I don’t believe in being a part of sect or a group of people. Feminism was used in America in the 1960’s or whatever to break the family unit and promote separation. (Generally a strong family = a healthier society with more core values.) All of a sudden women were going to work, and instead of a child being raised by their family/mom at home, now they were brought up by the state since preschool and subject to new ideas, peer groups, and the like.
I’m not saying things should go back to the way they were in the 1950’s. It was a rather depressing time for women and they were highly repressed. But I do think that there should be choice, and balance. Where I live the choice for women is flexible, they can choose not to work and bring up a family, or if they have ambition they can pursue that as well!
Also I think it’s technically incorrect to call yourself a feminist if you’re advocating racial rights for example (which is believing in equality) :~~)
