When I saw that #TellAFeministThankYou was trending on Twitter today, I was stoked. People appreciating feminism and all it’s done for society? Yay! I’m always on board for that. But then we started reading the actual tweets and unfortunately, most of them weren’t pretty. A lot of these tweets were about feminism being about hypocrisy, double standards and something about making sandwiches. Major sad face.
Instead of focusing on those people who apparently don’t realize that feminism is about equality of all people and not superiority of women (maybe they should read this), I decided to focus on the people who celebrated feminism. I rounded up 10 of my favorite tweets from the #TellAFeministThankYou hash tag – some are funny, some are serious, all are super smart. Check it out:
Which of these tweets was your favorite? What are your thoughts on feminism? What would you thank a feminist for? Tell us in the comments!
