I’m looking forward to meeting some students (male and female) at Nottingham University next week. Checking online, I found a link to photos taken at a Freshers’
Fair in September 2013. Students were invited to complete the sentence:
I need feminism because…
A selection from male students:
… why not?
… I shouldn’t have to explain why I need feminism
… it’s just common sense
… even girls can be boxers
… women get paid less!!
… women make great music!
… some people think I don’t – and everybody does
… women are people
A selection from female students:
… men must learn to wash up!
… I shouldn’t have to shave my legs
… because it’s great
… women should rule!!
… not only women can make a cup of tea
… it pisses me off that I have to queue for the toilet when the boys have no line
… I shouldn’t need a reason
There would appear to be a deep level of ignorance among Nottingham University students that feminism is a gender supremacy ideology driven by misandry. The place badly needs a new Society to start bringing light into the darkness, and I’ll do what I can to support it.
