Feminist

If you only do one thing today read this blog post by February Girl about girl power. When I read it it brought out my inner feminist. I am very much a feminist. I'm not burning my bra and I don't hate men but I do think that women should be independent, shouldn't depend on a guy and I think women should be nicer to each other. So often we are mean to other women for often no apparent reason. Sometimes we'd rather take a guys side than a girls. To quote Tina Fey in Mean Girls "You all have to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts and whores".
I also keep seeing girls putting statuses like "I want a boyfriend so they can buy me this" which infuriates me. Why wait for a guy to buy you it? I can't stand when girls expect a guy to pay for everything, its like we fought for our rights for nothing. If I want a bunch of flowers, I go buy them myself, I don't believe in ladies first, if a guy ever offers help to carry something heavy, I refuse. Unless it is literally too big for me to carry, then I offer to help. And if a guy ever shouts something lewd at me in the street I march over to them and explain how rude and intimidating they are being when I'm just trying to walk home on my own.
This song pretty much explains how I feel.
