Herald Sun columnist/ blogger Susie O’Brien received a barrage of abuse on Twitter for offering a different opinion on nude feminism, like that from actress Caitlin Stasey, who set up a site portraying a range of naked women. Ironically, Stasey wasn’t one to take offense and actually invited O’Brien to have chat with her about it when she was back in Australia. Unfortunately, some people seemed to take if the wrong way though.
Seriously, no wonder why so many people treat feminism as a complete joke; because that what it’s become. Feminism doesn’t seem to promote for equality for women anymore. It’s all about trying to make women the same with a lack of diversity. Weren’t feminists suppose to fight for choice, freedom and equality for all women? So why are we turning on each other?
There have been questions in whether young women in particular, need feminism. I’d say, not the way it is. Sure, fight against sexual harassment, sex auk assault, for equal pay for same work, etc, but. An’t we cut the pettiness? Can’t people be a bit more respectful toward each other? Because if young women still feel like they ‘need’ feminism, it’s not going to help if we make it into the ridiculous movement it’s become. Nobody needs that and it’ll end up backfiring on everyone, especially people who feel like they need feminism.
