Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

“Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
― Betty White

I am a Feminist.

I will list the stereotypes of what people perceive Feminists to be.

Feminists hate men.

We certainly do not! What we do hate is misogyny, sexism and hatred. I love my fiancee dearly, and he also considers himself to be a Feminist.

Feminists hate the idea of family.

I don't hate it. I think creating families is wonderful, if you want a family. I personally do not want a husband, wife and child kind of "family" because that is not the only type of "family" that exists.

Feminists are masculine and unattractive.

I am not masculine in any way, I actually like being feminine and womanly, I like make-up, I like curling my hair, I like dressing up for special occasions, I like to look pretty, and I like doing "girly" things.

Feminists hate God.

I don't hate God. I don't know God. I honestly don't care much to let religion to be part of my life. What I do hate is organized religion, churches, religious hate, and the excuse of God to hate and degrade others.

Feminists don't shave.

I shave. I shave everything. I shave my legs, underarms, private regions, I groom my eyebrows, I take care of my hair.

Feminists are all pro-choice.

I'm Pro Choice but I have known a few Feminists who have been Pro Life.

Feminists can't be stay at home moms.

I wouldn't want to be a stay at home mom. Actually, I don't want to be a mom at all.

Feminist whine about everything.

What's wrong with whining? Everybody whines!

Men are not feminists.

Men can be feminists! I know a LOT of men who are Feminists.

All people who label themselves as feminist believe in the exact same things.

We do not believe in the same exact thing. We may believe in similar concepts but not always.

Feminists are angry.

What do you expect when your rights keep getting shoved to the bottom of a barrel?!

   Moving on, I have really became used to the idea of me being a Feminist only about a year ago. I started getting into Politics, and started soul searching. I realized that I'm not just a liberal Feminist. I am a radical Feminist. I am all for reforming and dropping the entire system, laws, rules, stereotypes and lies concerning women and the oppressed.

   I am a LGBT supporter, I am all for gay marriage, gay adoption and equal gay rights. I don't see gays as any differently than I do anyone. I don't like racial slurs. I really don't. I don't like prejudice remarks. Me being Russian, I have heard many people call me a Communist, a Commie cunt, a Commie [insert insult here], so it really irks me if someone refers to a person as a "nigger", "spik", "kyke", "faggot" and any other derogatory terms. I find them very offensive.

   Now, don't get me wrong, I don't like being called a bitch if I don't deserve it, but to be quite honest, I am a bitch, a mean one at that. If someone insults me, I laugh at them. I also don't like the word "pussy". Something about it makes me cringe, while I have no problem with the word "cunt". I actually like that word, and use it quite often.

   Of course, people give me funny looks after they hear me curse and use the words like "cunt" and go on critisizing me about how a Feminist is "not supposed to use that sort of language". And why the fuck not? Should we continue on with the "slut", "whore", and "cunt" to insult women? I'm not. I'm re-claiming that shit! Fuck those who think that those words should be used to continuously put women down and make them shut their whore mouths! Fuck those people. If me being on birth control and fucking my fiancee on a daily basis makes me a whore, then I'll gladly be a slutty fucking whore. I'm taking that shit back! With pride.

  And with that, I am closing this post! This cunt is going to go and have a nice fucking Sunday afternoon! Good day!
