16 Guys Who Will Remind You Why You’re A Feminist

I am not here today to try and convince you that you need to become a feminist. In my brief time as a human being, I have found that it is often all but impossible to convince someone who doesn’t share your beliefs that your beliefs are the ones that are right and that their beliefs belong somewhere else. The trash, maybe. Rather, it is better, as the old writing cliche goes, to show, rather than tell people that their beliefs belong in the the trash.

But also, if you aren’t one–a feminist, that is–like, WYD, girl? Despite what some people might say, feminism isn’t about pitting men and women against one another or playing a “victim” card for one’s own benefit–rather, it is (literally) the belief that everyone should be afforded the same social, political, and economic rights. Still, sometimes it takes a particularly straight white male-type comment from a particularly straight white male-type guy to really reaffirm that, truly, women (both cis and non-cis) really are the only hope for the future. Basically, if you’re a feminist, these guys will remind you why. If you’re not a feminist, these guys will make you want to become one. I am showing, not telling! So, either way, check ’em out here:
