Reason why I am a feminist: because I recognize that, when boys are unable to express any emotion other than anger, that anger ends up manifesting itself in ugly ways (men are the #1 cause of violence against men + women). Expressing emotions is not gay. Let boys cry
The Kudzu was an underground newspaper in the South founded by a student activists group during the civil rights movement. Despite harassment by police & city officials it survived until May 1972. It's purpose was to advance the struggle for civil rights, oppose the war in Vietnam Nam, & to advance women's rights & feminism. It is said that few new left counterculture newspapers faced the level of official governmental intimidation as did The Kudzu.
Starting in the 1840s, all of the developments, "moral reform and temperance circulating against slavery, the Grimke's defense of their equal right to champion slaves, led many women reformers into women's rights" (DuBois & Dumenil, p. 238).
True that. Everyone has been taught growing up that a man is to be respected, like your father and your educators, and women are to be seen as the consoling and hindering type. This is a form of feminism, we are to be seen and respected the exact same as men and vice versa.
