    Some of those signs are odd. Needs Feminism so he won't contribute to the rape culture? So you don't hate yourself?
    Strange things to need feminism for. You would think Self esteem and respect for other humans would be enough.

    I was really impressed with some of those! I like the athlete one, fourth from the top. Good looking and smart ooh but then I get pulled up by the last one!

    Mine is... I need feminism because because it is an innate part of me, so much so that I can't identify exactly what it is I need it for!

    Maybe also, I need feminism because it keeps me balanced and stops me from being extremist.

    I need feminism because without it there is no way I could have gotten to where I am in my career.

    I need feminism because it allows me to confident enough to laugh when my DP calls me 'Germaine' rather than get defensive.

    I need feminism because I can wash up, wear high heels, have a career, do boxing, have a baby, enjoy fishing, love camping, like my thermomix and many many other things without having to consider whether I should/should not be doing any of it!

    I think what that rape culture one means is the continual assessment of women based on looks alone. I think.... otherwise yes it is odd

    That was awesome.

    I need feminism because I want to be paid the same for the same job, and not judged for my looks and clothing while I'm doing it.

    I need feminism because I never want to be told I was wearing the wrong thing or in the wrong place or have my sexual history used against me.

    I need feminism because I respect the men around me and I expect the same in return.

    I need feminism because the freedom to choose is so important to me.

    I don't certainly don't need feminism in any shape or form. A heap of rot that's ruined almost every good thing about being a woman.

    I'm genuinely interested, what do you think it has ruined?

    Out of curiosity, what do you think is good about being a woman?
