Feminism today has essentially become at hate movement.I suppose it's to be expected that you might think those opposing such hate are assholes but then no doubt Nick Griffin thinks exactly the same about his opponents too.Anyway you work sums up modern feminist thought perfectly: either agree with us or suffer abuse.
Here's an idea for your next "artwork""I wish I had a vagina""cos I'd fuck you""and a whole bunch of other guys""and pretend the kid was yours""then break up with you""and steal child support off you""and the house""and half your money""and half your future earnings too""and never let you see the kids"
I'm sorry if that has happened to you. x

Haha! That wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. A lovely ol' bum fingering. I was wondering why you turned away from feminism. I tried to look for it on your blog but couldn't find it. I thought this was interesting, as my take on feminism is men and women treated as equals. And I don't think we live in a truly equal society in terms of 'attitudes'. Of course not all feminists are the same - I don't always agree with majority of feminist thought - but I find it hard to believe in no sense you regard yourself as a feminist. I'm not being an arse I'm just genuinely interested. Lots of people say they aren't feminists but not many say they have been and turned away.Sarah
hi SarahThat's a good question and one I have attempted to answer a few times.e.g. here:http://quietgirlriot.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/against-feminisms/hope that helps!
People turn away from feminism for various reasons. But it is mainly down to twenty years of attack on equality of opportunity from the right in the press. The media is really powerful.And most people who are against feminism...you only have to start a simple debate before the invective comes out 'bitch' 'slut' to see what is really going on in their noodle. I did have a barny with a female art student who told me feminism was dead and offensive. While taking advantage of the access to education that previous generations of women had fought hard for.People are basically sheep and drop their morals or views at the first sign of some women hater.
