‘Men are Trash’ this particular phrase angers me to the core .Its an ignorant and illogical term. What about the men in women’s lives who have played a major role in empowering them should we call them trash too? This is disrespectful, inconsiderate and part of the toxic society that women are creating .This is not feminism this is toxicity
Women are part of the problem when it comes to attaining gender equality. They play a major role in slowing down its progress.Heard of the phrase ‘women are their own enemies’ well its true.
In Kenya lots of women have tried out vying for government posts and have failed terribly yet the population comprises of more women to men.If Women cant support their own how soon can we ever achieve gender balance in society?
Women cant support each other;When it comes to ambitions or aspirations they are part of the trolling crowd and are quick when it comes to drawing out the flaws of the other females.
Now in simpler terms ‘Women are trash too’. They’ll complain of how men cheat on them in relationships and yet they cheer on Gold diggers and cheating female partners ‘Finish him sis’ ‘kill him sis’.This is trash too. Some women are in relationships for monetary value inconsiderate of their partners feelings towards them theyll still go ahead and cheat isnt this trash too?
Such women are silent when it comes to teenage pregnancies and FGM yet they claim they are ‘Feminists’ and that they hold womens interests at heart .They are quick in incriminating innocent men in rape cases and cheer on false victims who are out to tarnish the reputation of the man not considering the male’s side of the story bt when it comes to real issues affecting women they are silent.This category aren’t feminists bt toxic women hiding under the movement.So inclusively and being illogical like the rest i can now claim ‘women are trash too’.
As a feminist ,i feel pressured to announce my stand as a liberal feminist,ever since the emergence of the so called ‘toxic feminists’ who have no idea of what feminist ideologies are really meant for.
Feminism is meant to break gender disparities not to create a wave of hatred towards men nor to overthrow men out of their natural positions.This has disenfranchised Feminism from spreading in society thus it has been greatly shunned by many.
Feminism was meant to break gender barriers that hinder societal progress.To break norms about masculinity and femininity, not a movement to ease out bitterness and to showcase women’s weaknesses nor to demonise men.Such type of ideologies are deceptive.
Although at first Feminism catered and fought for women’s rights only modern feminism is gender inclusive in all aspects .In the form that they are Male feminists such as Tyler crews and Barrack Obama.Individuals that believe that gender barriers have barred both men and women from expressing who they truly are
Feminism as Chimamanda ngozi adichie describes it in her book ‘We should all be feminists’ ;which i consider to be the Real feminist manifesto is part of Human rights that addresses the specific and particular problem with gender on issues affecting both men and womem amicably.
I believe the day women will rise up and support each other and empower society to end common gender steorotypes ,Gender equality and balance will be attained.
