What I don't get about feminism

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I admit I let myself down at times to see the comments on the Kardashian's Instagram and other related accounts and...oh my. If you criticize the fact that having your lips pumped up like a fish, your butt injected with fat (which, in clothes, looks like a nappy filled with ****), your jaw shaved, a boob job, and Botox to arch your eyebrows looks ridiculous, somehow you're the a-hole because you believe they looked better before? I love the Audrey quote. Sadly, I don't think many young people will know who she is (well, maybe from that advert). However, saying that, I think the issues more to do with the parents of the Snowflakes. Although the Kardashian's aren't good role models, they shouldn't have to be. It's less to do with the actual person - as we could be discussing an Olympian - and more to do with the celebrity worshipping culture. It's like when parents complain about Rihanna's suggestive clothing and language. Instead of being perpetually outraged and offended that their daughter's fragile little mind is being ruined by gyrating hips, perhaps sit down and explain that she is selling something; she's part of a business. She's openly admitted that she's not a role model. So I can see both sides to this debate, and I'm still not 100% sure where I stand on it

    No one gets feminism, even the feminists can't agree between themselves what feminism is
