Majority of millennial men say they are feminists…(Nah, they’re just trying to get laid)
According to a new CBS/Poll a majority of millennial women, 54%, say they are not feminists. While only 19% say they are Republican and 34% claim to be Democrats, the reasons given as to why they aren’t feminists seemed to be that feminists are seen as too far left.
Some of the responses are like this 22-year old who said, “I feel like the movement has been largely taken over by far-left wing activists that make it nearly impossible for me to identify with.” She also thinks feminists are ignoring some of the negative effects of getting an abortion and said, “Although not all women suffer emotionally or physically after an abortion, many do, and their stories are ignored by mainstream feminism because it doesn’t fit the narrative of abortion being a good thing for women.”
Another one who is 25 said, “I don’t think women in the modern western world are oppressed. I think modern feminists try to create a boogeyman out of what they call the patriarchy and hunt it down, but it’s not necessary… Men and women have different strengths and weaknesses. Acknowledging that is not sexist.”
Only 18% of Millennial women have a favorable view of Ivanka Trump. There could be a lot of reasons for that.
