Don’t Buy Me That ‘Feminist’ tshirt You Saw

As someone who is openly feminist, I know many people think of me when they see ‘feminist’ merchandise. Whether it’s tshirts, posters, stickers, or bags, I often get a “Oh this made me think of you!”. And I’m not criticising that, I mean I’m glad they’re thinking of me and I don’t dislike the association, but I just want them to be aware of what kind of merchandise they are looking at.

Intersectional Feminism

I’ve written a post a few months back explaining why I am a feminist and how as women we experience sexism in our everyday life, starting from a very young age (you can find the post here).

I’m sure you’re dying to mention this feminist girl you know, or heard of, who is full of anger towards men and wants to dominate them, but that isn’t feminism. Actual feminists do not agree with that. I often get called extreme because of my opinions, but what’s extreme about wanting equality?
