I think I’d look pretty distinguished with a moustache.

Ive been here 3 years so far. I moved up here because I started dating someone who lives here, and I was the one in the relationship who had the ability to just up and leave everything they were currently doing, and since I was looking for a way out of my job at the time also that really worked out. I really super love Toronto so I have no qualms about living here.

Difficult to understand? Well I don’t know, y’all seem to be having a rough go of it!
I’m not applying labels to people who refuse to be a part of the definition of said label. Feminism is defined as the belief in gender equality. Period. Full stop. End sentence. Do not pass go. End transmission. Over and out.
If you believe in gender equality, you are by definition a feminist. Sorry for all your bad luck if that upsets you, but you’re gonna have to stop believing in equality to escape it.
Yes, some feminists demonstrate in ways not everyone likes. Yes some feminists think that feminism should be more or less inclusionary. Yes some feminists take their tops off and yell at people and chain themselves to fences while others do nothing to demonstrate their beliefs, they simply just sit at home and have the beliefs all to themselves. Some feminists do shit that I highly disagree with, but I cannot take their label away from them.
They’re all feminists if they believe in gender equality. That is the only requisite to the label. That’s how the word is defined, and we define words so they fucking mean something because without solid definitions I can say shit like “oh my flip flop look at that bathtowl flying straight through the mustard!” And you’re not going to have any fucking idea what I’m talking about because I just made up what I think all those words should mean.
If you don’t understand that then I guess the answer to the question is it’s really fucking hard.

Whoa check this shit out, a book made completely for the act of defining the words we use so that people we talk to can understand what we are saying and everyone is on the same page.
fem·i·nism noun \ˈfe-mə-ˌni-zəm\
: the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities
Mind blowing, I know.
Patriarchy and rape culture are parts of gender inequality, not separate from it. Where you want to take your beliefs and how you want to voice them is up to you, but if whatever the balls it is that you’re doing is standing up for gender equality, it’s feminism.
Just like some Christians think god hates fags and some don’t but they still both get to call themselves Christian? Same thing. You don’t have to agree with or do the same things as other feminists to be one. Words have definitions for a real good reason.

The word feminism is literally “gender equality”. If you’re for gender equality, you are a feminist. #sorrynotsorry
#yesallwomen because someone (possibly another woman) *actually* believes what they just said.
I won’t even bother answering any of this shit. I’ve got moving to do and blood pressure to watch

So here’s the the thing. Along with the piles and piles of absurd and harassing responses I’ve gotten to some of my #yesallwomen tweets this week, there’s also been a small set of tweets from women. Women who say things along the lines of “you don’t speak for me” or “I don’t *believe* in feminism”
That’s fine. Nobody is speaking for you, and you don’t have to agree with or believe in feminism (though, why you don’t want to be equal is beyond me. But whatever) The thing about #yesallwomen is that it’s not just someone’s hairbrained opinion. It’s a fact, based in statistics. Much like I don’t have to believe in gravity for it to not only exist but actually affect my life every single day, you don’t have to necessarily be a feminist for #yesallwomen to apply to you. The only requirement is that you are a woman.
#yesallwomen says many things depending on who’s using it, but there is one common point it’s making. The full sentence in non-140 character twitter speak, is simply this : Yes, all women face the effects of misogyny, rape culture, and a society stacked unequally against them. Whether or not you have the same experiences as other women in those areas, does not set you apart from the fact that you will be affected in some way at some point in your life. Whether you even notice it for what it is at the time it happens is completely irrelevant, the statistics don’t rely on your acknowledgment for their existence. Whether or not you have the same reaction to an injustice against you as another woman has to the same against her, does not set you apart from the group.
You may become raving angry if someone cuts you off on the highway, and a few miles up the road the same guy might cut me off and it doesn’t bother me as much as it bothered you - the fact remains that we both experienced the effects of an asshole driver. My not caring about it the way you did does not negate the fact that it happened. Get it?
Oh sure, you might not fall on the extreme end of the spectrum. Maybe you’re luckier than some girls. You’ve never been raped, or physically abused. You don’t get cat called that much. Your boss doesn’t treat you like dirt, your husband doesn’t treat you like dirt, you feel like you live a pretty damn good life. You don’t sweat the small stuff like your birth control without insurance is hundreds and hundreds of dollars more and far more heavily legislated than condoms, just for one example. That’s awesome, seriously, and good for you. There’s so much more than those extremes though. If you ever went to a public school, there was probably a dress code, and that dress code probably allowed boys to wear whatever kind of shirt they wanted, but girls couldn’t show too much chest, midriff, or even shoulder, because you’d be distracting. Not to other girls, to the boys. There were no “you might be too distracting to the girls” rules in the boys dress code. You are a part of #yesallwomen, even for something that you probably didn’t think much of, something that no longer seems to bother you - again an extremely small and seemingly stupid example when you talk about it by itself - it still happened and it’s just one of the products of a societal scale tipped towards men. It all builds up. And the dress code you learned in elementary school - that if a girl shows too much it’s her fault she distracts - or worse - a boy, sticks with you into your adulthood. And then you start calling women who chose the way to dress their bodies because it made them happy “sluts”, and blaming them if they’re harassed instead of blaming the harasser. Get it? If someone hadn’t told you as a child that showing too much skin was wrong, would you have ever come to that conclusion on your own? You were probably one of those toddlers that the parents can’t keep dressed for more than 5 minutes to save their lives, many of us were. If someone hadn’t told you how shameful it was to show your body, would you have ever covered it up out of shame? Would you have ever learned the word “slut” or used it to mean “a woman who shows too much skin” if you were never told that there’s a such thing as showing too much skin and that it’s wrong? If someone had never put the idea in your head that women who show too much are asking for the harassment they get, because the harassers cannot control themselves when faced with the human body, would you still go around blaming victims? Do you get that you are a part of the cycle and you never made a conscious decision to be there? Even if you personally don’t care when someone does that to you, or if you don’t care what it does to someone when you do it to them, you are stuck in the middle of a giant mechanism that you’ve been a part of since your birth and you probably aren’t escaping any time soon, and that is what #yesallwomen is about.
No woman chooses to live in a world of inequality, we didn’t choose #yesallwomen. As a woman, you can choose to not support other women, but you can’t choose to not be a part of the world you live in that is inequal towards you. You are #yesallwomen.
