1. I don’t need feminism because I don’t like playing victim.

2. I don’t need feminism, because as a woman in western society who has the luxury to sit inside her own house, in a comfortable bed with a laptop and has access to the internet I would feel ashamed to consider myself “oppressed” or complain about nonsense-issues, while women in other countries have to endure real suffering.

3. I don’t need feminism because the movement is filled with hypocrisy.

4. I don’t need feminism because it’s okay, somehow, to call men creeps and pedophiles, but it’s an absolute sin to call women sluts, even when the women who being called sluts are sluts.

5. I don’t need feminism because I was told by a feminist that because I am anti-feminist I cannot go around saying I’m pro-equality. Because apparently feminists not only invented fighting for human rights they also patented it.

6. I don’t need feminism because they make me feel bad about loving to be girly. I love skirts, dresses, make up and everything like that, I don’t want to be masculine to be a “good” and “clever” girl.

7. I don’t need feminism because rape is a crime issue, not a gender issue.

8. I don’t need feminism because after years of my friends and family telling me to love and accept my obese body, I watched my father die at 55 from a heart attack. He was obese too but weighed less than I did. I’ve lost 80 pounds since then and I’m still going, that’s how I love my body. That’s how I want everyone to love their bodies.

9. I don’t need feminism because feminist claim America is a patriarchal society yet they ask those men to do things for them.

10. I don’t need feminism because I know that it’s possible to put yourself into “rapey” situations.

11. I don’t need feminism because they’re too unintelligent to understand that rape culture is a myth.

12. I don’t need feminism because I don’t believe in slut shaming. I believe in freedom of speech. A person has the right to call you a slut for sleeping with several people and a person has the right to call you awesome for sleeping with several people.

13. I don’t need feminism because they seem to ignore transwomen.

14. I don’t need feminism because I don’t have a victim complex.

15. I don’t need feminism because I’m capable of critical thinking and don’t need other women representing me.

16. I don’t need feminism because they paint women as these weak little creature who need saving and government giving protection.

17. I don’t need feminism because I’m a humanist.

18. I don’t need feminism because I realize men have issues too.

19. I don’t need feminism because it’s an inherently biased and sexist group.

20. I don’t need feminism because I don’t believe I should get special privileges because I have a vagina.

21. I don’t need feminism because it only focuses on working class women.

22. I don’t need feminism because women can opt out of motherhood but men can’t opt out of fatherhood. Males are forced to either take care of their kids or pay child.

23. I don’t need feminism because I don’t like blaming society for my problems.

24. I don’t need feminism because the wage gap is a myth.

25. I don’t need feminism because I don’t find anything wrong with rape jokes.

26. I don’t need feminism because my gender doesn’t make me weak.

27. I don’t need feminism because I’m a logical person who sees the misandry in feminism. TC mark
