Dear Rad Fems,

Modern feminism is just something us conservative girls don’t need. Don’t get us wrong, it isn’t because we don’t think women should have equal rights.  It is just no longer the courageous women that fought for our right to vote and various other legal issues.  The feminist movement has radicalized, and we don’t want anything to do with it.

There are women in other countries who cannot get an education, who cannot vote, who cannot drive cars …. And the biggest concern for feminists in the United States is that they want the government to pay for their birth control pills. Maybe if you stopped worrying about your #FirstWorldProblems and started fighting for rights that actually matter us conservatives would join your side. No, we DEFINITELY would…but unfortunately, I don’t see that happening.

You claim to be a movement that supports and lifts up ALL women, yet the first thing you do is attempt to belittle conservative women simply because we don’t agree with you. What’s with that? You manipulate facts to fit your radical agenda, like the elusive “pay gap,” and we conservatives aren’t afraid to call you out on it and prove you wrong. Just because we do not agree with you, you are hostile and try to bring us down.

The most ironic thing that you do is you complain about how “women don’t have the same rights as men,” while simultaneously enjoying free cocktails at ladies night where you boast to your girlfriends about how you flirted your way out of a traffic ticket. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. You can’t reap the benefits women have that men don’t, and then complain that women aren’t equal to men. It doesn’t work that way.

Conservative women do not feel like being a women is some sort of disadvantage. We wake up every morning, we go out into the world, and we work… HARD. We do not blame on failures or our struggles on a fictional patriarchal society…. We just WORK HARDER.  We are NOT victims nor do we act as such.  We aren’t against women’s rights…. we just know that women already have them.

Sincerely,

Conservative women everywhere.
