OK. I’m not usually a rant-y complainer online. But here’s the dealio. I go to a small, all-women college. It’s great. I love it.
However! Some of my classmates don’t realize that “feminism,” has many faces, that anybody can be a feminist. I just saw a Facebook post, saying how disgusting it is when a woman wants to have children and “serve” her husband. The person who posted it said how “sad” she thinks it is. NO. What’s sad is that she does’t realize that it’s okay to want kids! Just like it’s okay to travel the world or to have a fulfilling profession. You can still be a feminist (I won’t say a “good” feminist because there’s no such thing as a good or bad one) whether you want kids or hate them, and if you love men or women or none of the above. I also disagree with her use of the word “serve.” “Service” is not just being a slave to someone. Think about community “service” or a religious “service.” It’s about seeing the good in things, and working to lift those good parts up.
Ya know what? I see a future for myself where yes, my “main purpose in life” as you called it will be to take care of my family and “serve” them in the best way I can. I’m a logical, responsible, nurturing (feminist!) person. I’m happy with my goals, so please respect me and the other people who feel how I do.
Keep an open mind :) Happy Thurdsay, dammit.
