You are not entitled to your habits or beliefs if they oppress or harm others. Opposing gay civil rights, women’s rights, minority rights, and eating meat all involve oppressing or harming another.
And the saddest part about it is, we have women within the feminist community Attacking each other, when we are supposed to come Together and stand up for our rights and equality. We are women, and we are in this together.
Independent women are dangerous: they know they don’t need a man to survive.
I cannot and will not respect your “opinion” if it blatantly engages in the systematic oppression of (including, but not limited to), Women, Homosexuals, and Minorities. If you are a man, you have No Right to tell me what I will do with my body. If you are Straight, you have No Right to tell me, as a homosexual, who I’m going to Love. And if you are part of the privileged class of society (i.e. Heterosexual, White, and Male), don’t expect me to bow down to Your ideals of what My life should be, Simple As That.
My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.
