The Facebook group ”Women Against Feminism” had a moment Monday. The group, which says it is “against modern feminism and its toxic culture,” (and presumably for Robin Thicke?) posted photos of women holding pieces of paper explaining why they don’t need feminism. Of course, the fact that feminist movements and beliefs are the reason that said women can a) write, b) form an activist group, and c) express themselves freely seems lost on them.
The group has over 10,000 likes, and was trending on Twitter all afternoon. Of course, we could spend a bunch of time explaining why mentalities like ”I don’t need feminism because my sex life is not a political agenda” are deeply, deeply misguided — and we did.
