Recently, I have seen an influx in anti-feminist articles. I must admit, in this day and age, it is quite disappointing to see such articles, especially in this day and age
Marching for justice was not a march against men. If you think that way, put the brakes on and slowly put the gas on, because we are about to head on a ride. (And yes, I am proud of that)
What people against feminism fail to fully grasp is that feminism wants to include everyone, including men, to work towards goals like equal pay. If you want to keep doing 100% of the work and only getting 75% of it, then go for it. However, I will continue to fight to work towards that goal. We have come so far, yet there is a long way to go before equality.
Feminist does not mean that we are against men. Many people have the vision of a feminst as someone who hates men and wants to "smash the patriarchy." We don't. If anything, men need to step up and help us fight.

So yeah, we may be doing the so called "not normal" thing, but we are marching and believing these ideals for everyone. It's no longer a Republican or Democrat issue. This is an issue of preserving the livelihoods of women before us. We are promoting togetherness, not being divided. At the end of the day, we all have the same parts. Like an engine, we need to use those different parts to com together and help run.
I may not be your typical feminist, but then again, I've never been your "typical" anything.
