Feminist VS Feminism VS Equalist.

Tahlia Whistler_edited

We all know that you cannot bring up the word “Feminist” in front of a Male, you will feel the tension straight away and notice that the present Male will slowly step away from you like your a psycho.

It makes me wonder why this is? In my opinion, a Feminist is someone who takes part in ways to promote and better Gender Equality. However recently I do notice that Women are uneducated and use the word “Feminist” negatively toward men to almost demote Males in order to prove Females are better. Feminism should be about making positive changes in Gender Equality and educating both Genders on how we can continue making small changes in order to have a more equal future. Us Women need to remember that we will never be the “same” as men, our bodies are different.

This is why I am an equalist, I believe in equal rights and equal opportunities. I do not want to demote Men or make them feel bad for the current issues we are facing. I do however want to continue educating them and ensure that they are empathising with us Women and our situation, instead of them not understanding and ignoring it.

I want to continue this conversation so please share your thoughts, I feel very passionate about this topic and am always open to other opinions.
