So respectful of other people’s opinions. Thank you, feminism!
this is honestly why we don’t need feminism
I used to think she was funny but now I just think she’s condescending idiot. She used the suffragettes and the women’s liberation movement as the reasons we need feminism now. She used the success of first wave feminists as the reason we need feminism now. THE SUCCESS! That’s the whole point that women(and men) against feminism are trying to make! The suffragettes and many other early feminist groups already succeeded in giving women equal rights! Her whole rant made no sense! ” I’ll try and explain feminism to these misguided lasses…” “feminism is the reason why… but you probably didn’t know that” She then went on to insinuate that all #WomenAgainstFeminism are idiots. That condescending attitude REEKED of typical Tumblr feminism and whats worse is that most people are praising her for it.
The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”
Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.
At that age, my little brother wanted to be a Black-eyed Susan. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a flower.
Did we start calling him a flower? No.
Did we change his physical appearance? No.
Did he go through surgery to become a flower? No.
Moral of the story: kids say stupid stuff. To get a sex change that early in life, and to be the parent that initiates it, is wrong. Kids say a lot of stuff that they don’t mean. He stuck to that flower stuff for two years. He’s forgotten it now. He’s not plantkin or anything like that. We didn’t start calling him flowerself or whatever.
They’re kids. They say and do dumb things. Life-changing decisions shouldn’t be made by 3-4 year olds.
It must be a super power now.
No one is having the kid go through a sex change. Where the actual fuck did you get that from? Just letting them dress as a different gender and respecting their pronouns. That is harmless. Calm down friend.
I’m going to take a middle ground here. I think that parents should be supportive of their children, and that means, yes, calling him/her he/she depending on what they want to be. If you have a “son” and “he” wants to be a girl, then call “her” “she”. Same thing vice versa. But actually going through a life changing physical procedure is utterly ridiculous. I support transgender people, but actually getting a procedure to change their sex… irresponsible to say the least.
