"To All That Oppose Feminism"
-A Slam Poem:
Oh, I’m sorry.
Did my feminism offend you?
Does the fact that I stand for equal opportunity, disgust you?
How about the hundreds of thousands of children that get abused, murdered, molested and are malnourished?
Do they annoy you, too?
Is it the fact that I stomp on the idiotic patriarchy that runs this country, that you go out of your way to go against my cause?
Do you hate me?
Or do you hate what I support?
Because if that’s the case, then you are quite the jerk, old sport.
Do you fear women that can stand for themselves?
Is that the problem?
Or is it your egotistical selfishness that you are concerned for?
The ones who “don’t need feminism”,
why do you think you have degrees?
A corporate job?
Why can you buy a car or a home?
Why do you have birth control?
Why can you express your anti-feminist mindset or, any mindset at all?
It’s all because of feminism.
the ones in my class that just rolled their eyes because I said the word “feminist”,
I stand for little girls and boys all around the world that are denied the rights of humanity.
The men and women, too.
I stand for every victim of rape, sexual harassment, and sexual abuse.
I stand for the elimination of gender roles, and for all to have the right of self- determination.
I stand for stopping the sexualization of female bodies.
And I stand for not using what they wear as an excuse.
I stand for the women, who still do not receive equal pay and opportunity.
I’m for that.
And to all the government officials that are trying to make abortion illegal; you can keep your politics out of my genitals.
For everyone in the LGBTQ community and for everyone we have lost, and for everyone we will unfortunately continue to loose;
I stand for you too.
Feminism is a great thing, and I severely pity those against it.
Who are you to tell me that I cannot be equal with a man; any gender as a matter of fact?
Do you think that what is in between your legs defines your power?
Well if you do, I got some news for you son (especially you, meninists);
the vaginal muscles will probably squeeze the patriarchy out of the overly sensitive meninist testes.
But you know, I don’t hate men.
I stand for men to be able to cry, and show pain; to give them the support they need when they are raped.
I stand for men being able to wear what they want, act how they want (in reasonable manner), and to work as whoever they want.
I stand for male benefits, as well as mine and those of others too.
I fight for women to go into politics, medicine, and engineering.
But if you want to stay at home and maybe start a family on top of that,
then be my guest.
I am for better education, nourishment, health, knowledge, equality, fairness, and so much more.
But what do you,
one who opposes feminism,
what do you stand for?
