The best of ‘I need feminism because…’

They’re the whiteboards that have swept across campuses nationwide. The Tab picks out the best of the ‘I need feminism’ signs.

These whiteboards came alive on campuses across the UK this year as students scrawled their ‘I need feminism’ messages on them.

And almost all the resulting pictures went viral on Facebook as more students and societies joined the whiteboard movement.

Here The Tab picks out the best of the bunch from around the country.

      For one, on a majority basis, women don’t run the world.

      • Douglas

        On the ‘girls run the world’ point. Firstly, I thought feminism was against women being called ‘girls’ (or maybe that’s only when men say it). Secondly, she’s quite right: most nations are democracies in which the voter has the overall control of government policy. In almost all democratic nations, women have a clear majority vote over men. That is to say, the country is a matriarchy, controlled by the majority voter: women.

      And so what? What if it was a guy’s ass? This is a privacy issue, not objectification or something that feminism is equipped to deal with.

      • Danny

        If it was a guy’s ass it’d be equally unacceptable, the problem is that entrenched patriarchal attitudes have normalised the female body solely as an object for male desire that a publication with The Tab sees no problem with an article objectifying women in this sense.

        That one isn’t made about men should be celebrated – and also make us pause to wonder why, and how society’s perceptions of the male and female body differ.

        No it doesn’t, I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t, if it did, then it wouldn’t have a clash with humanism. Feminism is a pressure group for women’s rights, it is not interested in anybody else’s rights, and will gladly tread all over them to make women’s lives easier.

        Which is exactly what women have been doing for hundred of years. Get with the fucking program. Women have always been protected and seen of as important, men have always been disposable.

        • Anonymous

          We may already have a word for equality but we definitely don’t have equality. That’s why we have feminism, to push women’s rights into the public eye of our patriarchal society to help achieve equality. Until women and men have equal rights, feminism will always be about fighting the subjugation of women but that is not the same as wanting women to be in a more powerful position then men.

          Bringing down patriarchy is not the same as bring down men. It is ridding society of a system that favors men purely because of their sex.

          Also what makes you think men have ever been seen as disposable and women important? Please explain that to me in the light of so many women who have been raped and abused and told by family, friends and colleagues to ‘brush it off’ as not ruin the life of the male aggressor over a ‘misunderstanding’. Are they’re lives and happiness not seen as disposable here to protect the important status of the man?

          • Douglas

            Oh, here we go, someone trying to bring in arguments from the flawed and discredited Patriarchy Theory to show how feminism really is needed – even in a society that has no legal discrimination against women but does have laws discriminating against men. In a society which concentrates on a couple of hundred top executive jobs for women while there are a third of a million more unemployed men that women. In a society where women control the majority vote yet have a Women’s Minister and several women’s groups in government while there is no Men’s minister or men’s groups in government. In a society that has better education for females at all levels yet concentrates on girl’s education and special programs for women in universities, with no specific help for boys or men. And all one woman has to worry about is how she feels walking into Ann Summers (does she think most men feel comfortable?)

        Feminism is no longer about equality. Its about demonising men with all manor of strange statistics and attempting to make men feel bad for being masculine. Here’s one for you, 80% of rapists come from single parent house holds in the USA, women single handedly bring up most rapists. Its great to see you are doing so well.

        • Anonymous

          Rubbish. Feminism has never been about demonising men it has been about fighting a society that still treats women as inferior, when they are clearly not. Consider the pay gap and the gender spheres that still exist in society. If these things could have gone away by themselves, they would have done by now. With feminist movements, these problems have been lessened but not eradicated. Feminism has meant progress, feminism has meant change. Do you think that women are inferior to men then?

          • LA

            The wage gap is a myth, mostly coming down to women’s own choices about the kind of work they do (less dangerous, and therefore less financial payment), how long (on average, women work for less hours each week than men). Entrepreneurial women still make less on average than men – not because of institutionalized patriarchy, but because their aims are often for comfort of lifestyle, environmental aims, having more free time etc, rather than a purely profit incentive that most men choose to look for. I suggest you look into the research done by Warren Farrell before you make ridiculous, unfounded claims – like the majority of ‘feminists’ do.

          • Anonymous

            Many women end up getting less pay, or being overlooked for promotion due to taking extended time off in order to raise their kids. So they have to deal with either less money, or being chastised for being a bad mother. Men don’t have that issue – it’s expected of them to earn money for their families – that’s their role. It’s therefore somewhat inevitable that they’ll earn more money on average than women.

      Sadly, I completely agree with you. There are too many ‘feminists’ who misunderstand the meaning of the equality that they are ‘fighting for’. Many want equal rights with men, but at the same time want men to whole a door for them, to have the maternity leave be longer than a paternity leave, etc., etc. Also many ‘feminists’ are okay with the objectification of men, but when something objectifies women then it’s ‘sexist’ and ‘bad’.

      • Sarah

        Why is it that whenever a debate about feminism comes up, some dickhead will always go “It’s terrible, I can’t even hold a door open for a woman now without her accusing me of sexism” or “Women want equal rights but still want doors held open for them!”
        What is this obsession with holding doors open? Is there a door openers support group? Can I join? Is it all the same men who complain about “friendzoning” and assume that being a ‘nice guy’ means that women are obliged to have sex with them?
        Just to make this clear to you, the poster of this comment.
        The rectification of the gender pay gap > man holding door open. That’s basically all you need to know about feminism, that’s what it means, the challenging of social wrongs towards women. And there are many. We’re not really bothered about the door thing.

        • LA

          As I posted above, the pay gap is a myth and down to women’s own lifestyle choices. Posters like this refer to holding a door open, but use it to symbolize all acts of chivalry – paying for dates for example – a vast majority of women are still offended if a man expects her to pay towards the date, despite equal earnings.

          • Sarah

            And my response is basically the same – an end to rape culture and everyday sexual harassment > getting my meal bought for me. I think if you asked most women “Would you rather never again have to literally fight a man off as he grabbed your arse so hard it left a bruise on a night out or split the bill at Pizza Express” they’d plump for the former.
            And the the gender pay gap is not a myth, just today a landmark court case was won by female classroom assistants who fought for 7 years to be on the same pay scale as their male counterparts.
            I don”t know your sex, but if you’re male and you’re still under the impression we don’t still live in a deeply sexist society, ask your mum, grandma, sister, aunt, girlfriend if they’ve ever experience sexism, particularly street harassment or workplace sexism. I can almost guarantee they will all tell you an unpleasant story and I hope it will change your tune.

    The ‘luxury’ item argument is rubbish, if it is coming from the taxing point of view then it’s giving a distorted view of the argument. Not only luxury items have VAT. Plus things such as clothes are considered ‘luxury’ items. I’m pretty sure clothes are not a luxury (obviously some are, but so would be a gold encrusted tampon) The labeling doesn’t make any difference.

      Yeah, but a box of Tampax is a fiver and quite frankly that’s dumb when without sanitary products women bleed fucking everywhere for a week a month. It’s metal as shit when you get up in the morning covered in your own blood and the first thing you think is “damn, gotta wash the sheets.”

    With regards to the armpit one, no-one is saying you aren’t allowed armpit hair, which would be ‘unequal’. It is just that the majority of men (a fairly justified generalisation I think) will find you unattractive for not removing it, which IS OKAY if that’s what you want. It’s all about the choice.

    • Hollie

      The majority of men find underarm hair unattractive because they, as women have, have been brainwashed into thinking it’s unattractive because it doesn’t fit with the idealised image of a woman as groomed, delicate, and elegant which IS an issue feminism needs to address.

        No, I just don’t find it attractive. Body hair in general. So men like body hair, particularly pubic hair.

        So if a woman prefers a man who is tall or hairy or has another physical attribute it this also bad?

        Sexual attraction is natural and you cannot help it, you may as well be telling homosexuals they have been brainwashed into liking the same sex.

        I consider myself a feminist, but in reply to your comment, there is also a very particular view on what an ideal guy should look like. So you can’t really say that it’s ‘unequal’ for men to objectify women, when plenty of women objectify men. Plenty of women don’t like big beards for instance, are you going to say that’s because they don’t like big beards, or is it because the prince charming ideal that they’ve grown up with never had a big beard?

        If you don’t want to shave your armpits, don’t. Nobody is stopping you but you. If you want to change social norms, then start with number one, don’t act like men are somehow to blame through our male only orchestrated power systems- which btw, fuck over men, and then whine and bitch about how unfair it is. Just do it. I promise you I won’t give a shit. People respect people far more based on their own confidence on willpower than they do on how hairy their armpits are.

      • Sceptic

        What evidence do you have for the claim that men and women have been brainwashed? Have you considered that this “idealised image of a woman” may be a piece of super-stimuli made possible through humanity’s technological advancement? For instance, perhaps heterosexual men naturally find trimmed women more attractive because it’s a way of distinguishing men from women? (Men of course naturally tend to have much more body hair than women).
        Also, why is this an issue feminism needs to address?
        You make a lot of claims but offer no justification.

  • Kate trollus maximus Smith.

    Women are equal before the law, and have been for a while, only in some isolated aspects of society do we get gender inequality.

    often feminism means bias in favour of women or trying to make the sexes the same (when they are not, i’ve even had feminists say that the “girls” section of kids toys is some how inequality, forgetting of course there are toys aimed at boys and that both girls and boy play with toys aimed at any gender (me and my brother played with each others toys)) when really what people want is simple equality.

    Why bother calling it feminism at all, why not just say: “I’m for equality”?

    Calling it feminism is in itself trying to make a “ooo lookkk attt meeee paaaayy attteennttiooon to meeeeeeeee!!!” sought of statement.

    Im for equality, for everyone.

    These surely can’t be the best of these. Half of them have nothing even to do with needing Feminism. Some are just completely irrelevant statements that are of little interest (What does your gran being awesome have to do with anything), some are just from people who haven’t learnt to function as independent human beings yet (we all need to cook and clean, very few of us are good at them without practice or tuition. I don’t know how you think Feminism is going to help you with that unless you want some excuse to be lazy), some are just attacking other people’s personal preference (You can grow armpit hair, but I don’t have to find it attractive. My girlfriend doesn’t find facial hair attractive and in my effort to stay attractive to her I will not grow any).

    As far as the strapon one is concerned, the dude just needs to realise that no-one else defines his own brand of masculinity (not even Feminism).

    There’s no doubt Patriarchy exists as its dictionary definition, but the existence of ‘Patriarchy’ as a systematic machine of misogyny and all things wrong with this Earth is dubious.

    Tampons seem a fair enough point. It does seem a bit frustrating that things we can’t particularly choose not to buy such as tampons and toothpaste and the like are taxed. No-one enjoys that.

    Wow. A lot of idiots desperately (and rather pathetically) trying to be funny in the comments today. I’m offended by reading your drivel, not just because it’s misogynistic tripe, but more because it’s so fucking tedious.

    I can’t believe people that are university educated are so ignorant when it comes to feminism, these misogynistic comments are about fifty years out of date and I’m struggling to understand why anyone STILL thinks ‘go and make me a sandwich’ is funny.

    Feminists go on about the gender pay gap and its a load of bollocks for the following reasons:
    1) Women work on average less hours than men per day
    2) Choose jobs that are less risky, have more comfortable conditions and regular hours and so on average are the jobs that are less well paid
    3)Have babies – if a man and woman at a company join at the same time in the same job and the woman takes half a year out 5 years down the line and the man then gets promoted he is naturally gonna get paid more and progress through the company further

    Hey, necessities being taxed as luxury is a reasonable issue. Feeling unsafe to be outside at night because you’re a woman is a HUGE ISSUE.
    The rest of these are a fucking joke, though.

    Some of this is a load of shit, if walking into Ann Summers is what you’re worrying about then you’ve got problems!
    Go to Iran, or any other country where there is MAJOR sexism, and then come back and moan about your problems and I’ll listen to you.

  • Not a moronic idiot

    Feminism is an idea that you can reach gender equality solely by focusing on the issues of one gender. I understand some things do need to be changed; Women feeling unsafe at night time is an example, at the same time there are other issues which are hugely unfair against men. An example being the bias against men in divorce settlements in a court of law. Most of the things mentioned on the white boards are non issues.

    How about we give up this ridiculous feminist nonsense and start concentrating on GENDER EQUALITY?
