“I’m not a feminist, but…”

This phrase is usually uttered by women who believe in gender equality, but don’t identify as feminists. And while we applaud their support of equality, there are a few things they say that only non-feminists say.

Here are 10 things only non-feminists say:

1. “I’m not a feminist, but I believe in gender equality.”

This is the most common thing we hear from non-feminists. And while we agree that gender equality is important, it’s not the only thing that feminism is about. Feminism is also about empowering women, fighting for our rights, and challenging the status quo.

2. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t believe in man-hating.”

Again, we agree that man-hating is wrong. But feminism is not about hating men. It’s about equality for all genders.

3. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t need feminism.”

This is a common misconception about feminism. Feminism is not about needing it, it’s about wanting it. We want equality, we want respect, and we want our voices to be heard.

4. “I’m not a feminist, but I’m not a man-hater.”

See number two.

5. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t need feminism because I’m already equal.”

This is simply not true. Women are not equal to men in society. We earn less, we are underrepresented in politics, and we are still fighting for basic rights like reproductive freedom.

6. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t need feminism because I’m not a victim.”

Feminism is not about victimhood. It’s about empowerment.

7. “I’m not a feminist, but all feminists are man-haters.”

See number two.

8. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t need feminism because I’m not oppressed.”

Again, feminism is not about oppression. It’s about equality.

9. “I’m not a feminist, but I don’t believe in gender roles.”

Feminism is not about eliminating gender roles. It’s about equality of opportunity, regardless of gender.

10. “I’m not a feminist, but I’m not a bra-burner.”

This is a common misconception about feminism. Feminism is about much more than bras. It’s about equality for all genders.
