Happy Feminist Pride Day, Sexy Feminists!

Photo by A. Jesse Jiryu Davis

We hope it’s clear from our name that WE ARE FEMINISTS, and we think it’s important that every woman in favor of equal rights calls herself one, too. We also hope you all declare your feminist pride today for Feminist Coming Out Day, International Women’s Day, whatever you want to call it. To not call yourself a feminist implies there’s something wrong with being one — we need to own the word and fight for what it means. In the past year, SlutWalks swept the nation, and that’s totally cool — let’s own “slut,” too, while we’re owning things — but good lord, we hope we can embrace “feminist” if we can embrace “slut.” And yes, Rush Limbaugh, we just called ourselves sluts. Because, of course, we’re assuming, due to recently highly publicized events, that being a slut means standing up for women’s rights and being very brave.

So: Happy International Women’s Day, feminists, sluts, and all!

    i couldn’t agree more. I hate how “feminist” has gotten such a negative attachment that people are afraid to identify as feminist.

    Sluts or not, enjoy female empowerment!

    Girls everywhere and all you emasculated “men” who are trying so hard to be politically correct at the expense of your masculinity, listen up.

    Men and women are equals. This does not mean that they are equal in every single thing they do. For example, men are, on average, physically stronger than women. It is much easier for a semi attractive (even a 6/10) woman to go out and get laid. The same cannot be said about men. Men have to work at it, have some skill (game) and thereby get a woman to sleep with them. It is a LOT harder for an equally attractive man to get women than it is the other way around. This is one of reasons behind why we, as a society, naturally celebrate men who are successful in bedding multiple women; while at the same time shame women who bed multiple men.

    Let us briefly visit the topic of virginity from both perspectives. Virginity in a man is not a desirable state or label when it comes to an attribute that the opposite sex wants. This is because he has obviously not been preselected by other women. However, female virginity is not looked at negatively in the least by men. If she looks decent, no man cares if the girl is a virgin or not. In fact, a female virgin is often wanted more.

    Now don’t get me wrong, men LOVE sluts. We will never turn down an opportunity to sleep with a good looking slut. Partly because she’s good in bed, partly because it’s sex. But any decently intelligent, self-respecting man will know that it is a terrible idea to emotionally involve himself (i.e. date) a slutty girl. That would be a very dumb move. Why would any man want to get emotionally involved with a girl who’s had 15+ sexual partners? We would just be setting ourselves up for failure. There are many nice worthy girls out there who don’t have daddy issues and haven’t slept with an entire fraternity house. But, by all means, fvck the brains out of sluts in the meanwhile.

    Most guys can detect when a girl is a slut by the first few dates and by what he hears about the girl from other people and from the girl herlself. We put this information together and figure out if she is dating material or not. If not, I like most guys, will still go in for the prize but have no intention of following through with dating the dirty little tart.

    To put it simply, a lock that can be opened by many keys is a useless lock and of little worth. But a key that can open many locks is a master key and is valuable.

  4. Feminism – denotes women who want to be men and who act in a totally unfeminine manner, so feminism is the opposite of its definition.
