Dear Dish-It, I'm a Feminist

Dish-It serves up some advice on International Women's Day.
International Women's Day!

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

Hey! I'm big on individuality and I'm a feminist but so many boys at my school say that a woman's place is in the kitchen, and the only reason they're around is for a man's pleasure. I'm constantly angered and frustrated by this because I'm such a supporter of the modern woman's rights. So my questions are, how can I vent my anger and frustration, and are there any reasons why so many boys think that women aren't so important?

Dear feminist,

It's thanks to a ton of great women in the past that you and I have achieved the things we have - and today, International Women's Day, is the day that peeps around the world are going to celebrate how far women have come. It's hard to say why some boys act the way they do towards girls, but as teenagers, guys will say a lot of dumb things to get under your skin. The majority of those guys don't really believe that a girl's place is in the kitchen, they just know that those sorts of comments will really make girls mad.


The best thing for you to do is work hard and stand up for what you believe in. Being a strong, successful female isn't always an easy role to play but 99 times out of 100 you'll be respected by both boys and girls for being yourself. So, just keep being the person you want to be and do your best to ignore the negativity around you. You'll want to avoid ranting and raving about modern women's rights to these boys, cuz they're just trying to get a rise out of you. Sooner or later they're going to get tired of buggin' ya cuz you're not going to let it bother you. Good luck and Happy International Women's Day!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .
