Dear Men Who Hate Feminists,
I am a feminist and I believe men should have equal parenting rights. Joint custody? I am all for it unless there are circumstances that would place one parent (not necessarily the mother) as the more fit parent. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters to me is that children have a safe, loving, caring home enviornment.
I am a feminist and I have no interest in harming men. I have no interest in harming another human being, period. In fact, I quite like men. The ones in my life right now are pretty great guys.
I am a feminist and I believe all people, regardless of gender, color or sexual orientation, should have equal rights. I believe a man & a woman with the same qualifications performing the same job should be paid the same. I believe all people, regardless of sexual orientation, should be allowed to marry the person they love. I believe everyone has a right to feel safe, regardless of their gender.
I am a feminist and I have no interest in taking rights away from men. All I want is to be afforded the same rights. You aren’t losing anything when that happens.
Perhaps this information will help change your mind about feminism.
