Welcome to my International women’s day rant!!! It truly warms my heart seeing so many strong women being celebrated!!! But at the same time this day slightly annoys me. Not the existence of it, but some of the reactions to it.
This is not a day of congratulations, flowers and a pat on the head. Not a day to make fun of. It’s a day to be reminded of what’s actually going on in the world, how the toxic masculine culture harms women (and basically everyone else). It pisses me off that anyone can actually be against, and mock, a day of talking about women rights when 2/3 of the adults that are illiterate are women???? When 60% of the chronically hungry are women???? When there’s a common freaking fact that women and girls don’t have the same right to their bodies as men, don’t have the same right to speak and dress as they like??? And that last part is so accurate, EVERYWHERE. I LOVE my country. Sweden is one of the most equal countries in the world. But I will never stop being an angry feminist for my own sake too, as long as I can’t spend one night on the town without getting into fights with disrespectful men. As long as my dad still makes some of my phone calls to airlines, authorities etc, because we both know that he, as a man, is being taken more seriously than I am. I will never stop being an angry feminist as long as women make less than men for the same fucking labor.
With that said, I love this day!! I love all the strong women that surrounds me! And I love all the men that gets it!! Women rules!!!!!
