Feminists Make Their Demands

Okay, start wincing, grimacing, and furrowing your brows my poor fellow beleaguered victimized brothers worldwide—a whole bunch of women, inspired by an unsavory rabble-rouser named Gia Milinovich who unreasonably wants “no more rape threats online”, have taken to Twitter to start demanding all sorts of insane things from us:

leenie909 Eileen Sarett-Cuasay: #feministwishlist For people to realize that women are not a “special interest group.” We’re half the planet.

c_quigley Christine Quigley: #feministwishlist To give men equal parental leave opportunities so new families can choose what works for them.

louisebrealey Louise Brealey: For men who’re not feminists to explain to the women in their lives why they don’t believe in equality for women. #feministwishlist

queerpup Robin: #feministwishlist To never hear the word feminist used as though it were a slur, and treated as though it were a shameful thing to be.

PinkStinksUK Pinkstinks: For women and girls to be judged on what they say and do and not on what they look like – that’ll be the day #FeministWishList

MissEllieMae Ellie Mae O’Hagan: Not to hear the response ‘don’t worry, you’ll change your mind’ when I say I don’t want children. #feministwishlist & To no longer be told I need to ‘get a sense of humour’ when I object to something sexist. #feministwishlist

eeleach Elizabeth Eva Leach: For people not to tell me that something *can’t* be sexist because lots of women they know do, say, or don’t mind it. #feministwishlist

boudledidge Hannah M: To see people stop using the term “real women”#feministwishlist

DawnHFoster Eoin McLove: To be able to eat a meal without people suggesting I should express guilt and anguish about everything I consume. #feministwishlist

evaDrD Dr Dave: #feministwishlist a gender neutral term for men who agree with feminism’s desire for equality. FeMANist?
