I want a world without feminists..


No seriously.. I am not kidding.

I want a world without feminists.

Why, you ask? Well, because the world would be a better place. Don’t you think?

No women shouting for their rights, independence, freedom. No more protests. No more blogs that talk about stupid (basic) things like equality equality and equality!

Because the feminists will cease to be when the world is truly equal. Truly balanced. Yin and yang restored. Ardhangini will truly mean what it literally means – better a half. (In Hindi, ardhangini means the female half of a couple i.e. wife!)

If we’re so fed up of listening to these droning social media posts on equality and gender policing and fairness and independence, let us be truly fair and may be, we’ll live to see a day without feminists!

Just like there are no freedom-fighters today, because India is, well at least democratically, a free country. So let us rid this country of feminists as well. No? 🙂

In response to a facebook posts that says: “Fed up of equality n feminist posts on mah feed. Whats’ wrong with women thez dayz?!” which is apparently liked by a few and commented “you go dude!” “yo man” and “right buddy, m fed up too!” by few morons. Apart from the annoying and irritating use of ‘z’ and wrong apostrophes and the ‘cool’ sms lingo and of course, the equally annoying ‘hip’ replies, also irritated by the obnoxious post!

    As always, I disagree with everything you say and go on to quote something totally unrelated:

    “At some point, all the horizontal trips in the world stop compensating for the need to go deep, into somewhere challenging and unexpected; movement makes most sense when grounded in stillness. In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing could feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.” —Pico Iyer, The Art of Stillness

    I know a lot of men in my family who fit the definition of feminists. They don’t call themselves so. But they do treat women as human beings, some women are good/bad, some are shy or assertive, some are laid back or driven, others are more creative versus more structured, etc. They don’t think, “oh she’s doing that because she’s a woman!”
    So anyone who doesn’t stereotype women or think they should have the same rights and opportunities is a feminist.
    Feminists can be men and women (since sadly there are many women who don’t believe in equal rights), young or old, gay or straight, married or single, with or without kids.
    I think the campaign to make feminists one-dimensional (women who are unhappy in general) is nothing but clever marketing to discredit the concept of gender equality. What better way to do this than make people uncomfortable with the word feminist?
    Therefore, I embrace the word feminist. But I can see why this word makes many people uncomfortable.

      Hello there. I completely agree with everything you say. Just that today the word feminist and feminism is so maligned that its intended meaning is lost.

      When today I say that I am a feminist, I would get a lot of “looks” from both men and women as if I am nuts! The meaning is lost.

      And today, the word stands for a protest against inequality. A movement in its own rights.

      Like the facebook post I was talking about. I just feel like shutting them up somehow. 😛

    To be honest, ‘feminist’ is a very misleading term because it sounds like ‘propagandist for women’s rights’ while true feminists actually believe in equality. So I don’t know if I want a world without feminists. On the contrary, I wish all people were feminists (believers in gender equality)! 🙂

    Also, the literal meaning of ardhangini is “half” and not “better half” – you may want to make that correction, too!

      Actually, a feminist does mean someone who advocates or supports the right of equality of women. So in a way, feminist is a propagandist for women’s rights! And I wish that there comes a day when equality is not something that needs fighting for / propagating / advocating. It exists.

      Of course, I also wish that all people are believers in gender equality. That should never cease to happen!

      And yes, I did change ardhangini = a half! 😛
