I really don’t GET the support some feminists have for famous women “coming out” (um) as feminists when these celebs bastardise the meaning of feminism in doing so. So WHAT if Taylor Swift announcing herself as a feminist makes young girls want to do the same? It really doesn’t matter if the entire damn female population ‘identifies’ as a feminist if their view of feminism is that it’s “about equality and not, like, being angry or protesting or anything lolz.” The whole damn world could ~believe in equality~ and stay the same forever because no one wants to make their oppressors uncomfortable or in any way challenge the status quo. I don’t care about making feminism popular because popular feminism doesn’t get shit done.
