Feminists are made, not born.
Feminists are not made from sugar, spice and everything nice.
Feminists are made from a desire to dismantle the patriarchy.
Replacing men in traditional patriarchal roles with women cannot dismantle the patriarchy.
Class equality is necessary to dismantle the patriarchy.
Feminism is about more than women; it is about equality for all.
Feminist is not anti-feminine or anti-masculine.
To dismantle it, we must first recognize how we support the patriarchy and sever those connections where possible.
