Feminism & Me

I strongly identify with what I've learned about third wave feminism. I don't know if I'd go so far as to call myself a feminist because I hate labels but I do share alot of the same beliefs. I feel that rape culture exist. I don't think that a guy will watch a movie then go rape a woman, nohting in life is that simple. I do believe however that if you are consistently viewing men being violent towards women verbally, sexually, physically and psychologically as a man you will eventually get used to it and think of that behaviour as normal. I strongly believe that the media directly contributes to these violent images. It can't be ignored that violence has increased in the media over the years and so has aggression and violence as a whole, especially against women. I also believe in sexual equality and freedom for women. I embrace my sexuality and feminity. I love walking around in my sweat pants and sneakers as much as I love slipping into a little sexy dress to hit the town. I hate that a man is considered the man when he has had many sexual conquest but a woman would be labelled a slut or a whore. I don't see anything wrong with a man helping out around the house, taking care of HIS kids or cooking and I don't see how that would make him less of a man. Quite the opposite it takes a real man to not be what society considers a real man.
