6 Reasons I Don't Need Feminism

Lately, there's been a lot of talk about feminism and why people think that they need it. But there are plenty of reasons why this movement is not good. In fact, it shouldn't even be real! So, while others preach about it and tell you why they think it's so great, I am here to tell you that I don't need feminism, and here's why:

1. I’m not able to open doors for myself.

Believe it or not, I need a man to open the door for me all the time. To all of the girls who say you don’t need feminism because you don’t want boys to stop holding the door for you, I stand with you! You are so, so smart and make such a good point. The truth is, I am very, very weak and do not possess the strength or hand/eye coordination to open a door on my own.

2. I don’t know that the word feminism means believing in gender equality.

I’m probably just too busy thinking about how I can’t wait to submit to my future husband to really get this concept through my head.

3. Equal pay is not for me.

There’s no bigger turn on than being under-appreciated for my work, while my male counterparts are paid more for doing the same job. In fact, just the thought of it makes me excited. I’m worth 78.3 cents to the dollar, and proud of it!

4. The only reason I get my period is to validate my opinions.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F09%2F635958296140414979-1475830764_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=533&h=334f01967cb5ce9bc91f3a669854a0cd4a1d19d4b0bfec12ec30d9efb2d2b456&size=980x&c=421298399 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F09%252F635958296140414979-1475830764_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D533%26h%3D334f01967cb5ce9bc91f3a669854a0cd4a1d19d4b0bfec12ec30d9efb2d2b456%26size%3D980x%26c%3D421298399%22%7D" expand=1]

I don’t think I would like it very much if, “She’s PMSing,” stops being a valid way of negating my opinions.

5. I want people debating whether I can have it all!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F09%2F635958296781041934-257129251_tumblr_n5yvy6aFDo1tq4of6o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=897&h=53f5f854647964e0b81160c70f985c4f9d3502d958aaf6440ba1ad633d50926b&size=980x&c=4171479961 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F09%252F635958296781041934-257129251_tumblr_n5yvy6aFDo1tq4of6o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D897%26h%3D53f5f854647964e0b81160c70f985c4f9d3502d958aaf6440ba1ad633d50926b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4171479961%22%7D" expand=1]Someone once told me to think if it was worth it to go grad school, just in case I wanted to have a family instead. Just think -- if I were male, I would have likely missed out on that sage advice! I feel so bad for boys; I can’t even imagine what it would be like if people just assumed that I could have it all -- yuck!

6. What I wear is the most important thing about me.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F09%2F6359583011166677851892941168_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=805&h=532f7f76f370b03f322281459bcca5155a31be17b4116854816d08c0cba1e2ec&size=980x&c=2805050463 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F09%252F6359583011166677851892941168_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D805%26h%3D532f7f76f370b03f322281459bcca5155a31be17b4116854816d08c0cba1e2ec%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2805050463%22%7D" expand=1]

If something bad ever happens to me, I really would like the first question asked to be "What was she wearing?" Because the way I look should have a direct effect on the way others treat me!

Do you need feminism? I hope not! Keep the equality and justice as far away from me as possible, please!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
