Feminism v. the Tough Girl

March 17th, 2014 Comments off

“Being a ‘tough girl’ doesn’t mean you don’t need feminism.”


“It means you have altered your humanity in order to appease/recenter patriarchy.”

Bull. Shit. Being strong does not appease or recenter patriarchy, and the suggestion that it does is, frankly, the stupidest feminist thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

If you’re allowed to be weak, then I’m allowed to be strong.

And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.

(Not really. I’m working on a longer post about this concept, but saw that RTed into my timeline, and had too much to say for a tweet.)
