Why feminists are being perceived as angry people? I am a feminist and I am absolutely fuming.
People are angry when they are not treated fairly, when they are forced to do things they do not want to or to behave in a way that makes them uncomfortable or when they are criticised or judged. When they are undervalued and mistreated, they go ballistic. Sometimes you cannot see that as some people are very good at masking that anger or trained to control it but inside ….. That is a totally different story. Inside angry people are boiling, are feeling all those suppressed emotions with such a power that it seems that one more minute and they will explode. After some time of trying to kill those emotions you feel beaten up, you feel bruised, you feel depressed and you feel tired. Like there is no hope. Useless, powerless.
All those inner wounds hurt the same as if someone battered your body, but no one can see it as its your soul, your mind, your inner ego that is hurting. And you feel trapped. You want to break those restraining chains but you have no strength left, you have no energy, you just freeze ….. Remember you always have a choice. I choose to be angry. I do not know how to fight with fists, I do not know any martial arts and I am not physically threatening. But I always was very good with words. So I use my words to express my anger and if it helps women around the world to unite and put a stop to all those things that piss us off than yes I am going to use the best weapon I have and post about my angry feminism.
In every issue I will write about things concerning women that make women all over the world angry. Hopefully, by reading those pages filled with the feminine frustration we can all unite and feel that we are not alone in our feelings and we will feel that there is some work to do. I hope my articles will empower and inspire you to change the future of our daughters.
