I Don’t Know How To Be A Feminist

I don’t know how to be a feminist. Because the meaning has been twisted.

It’s a bad thing now, isn’t it?

It means I hate men

It means I don’t know what I’m talking about.

 

I don’t know what a feminist is,

Because I’ve been told countless times the gender pay gap doesn’t exist,

Until I believed it

And I don’t know what I believe now.

 

I know I believe that men should cry,

And that men should dance,

And that men should wear dresses and makeup,

If that’s what they want

 

But if I call myself a feminist,

I want females to rise to the top

I want males to lag behind

I am disillusioned

I don’t know what I’m talking about.
