Lily Allen Says Feminism Shouldn’t Exist, All Women Tell Her to Shut Up
I completely regret saying that I enjoyed Lily Allen's 'Hard Out Here' single/video following comments made by the singer regarding feminism, and how it "shouldn't even be a thing anymore".
outspoken loud-mouthed singer used her role as guest editor of men's magazine Shortlist to really stand up to those good-for-nothing feminists, saying that women are their "own worst enemy" and that we're all equal in this world. Err, no we aren't, Lily. That's why feminism exists, because women are not treated equally AT ALL.
The singer said: "Feminism. I hate that word because it shouldn't even be a thing anymore. We're all equal, everyone is equal. Why is there even a conversation about feminism? What's the man version of feminism? There isn't even a word for it. Menanism. Male-ism. It doesn't exist."
The "man version of feminism" is actually called the Men's Rights Movement, which is composed of Men's Rights Activists who are tired of those pesky vagina-havers calling them out on their misogyny. We're sure that Lily, who has become something of an icon to young women thanks to her brash nature, will now have a special place in these Men's Rights Activists' hearts now that she's stood up for the plight of underappreciated white men everywhere, and fought back against the idea of women fighting for their equality.
She continued: "It's much the same [as it used to be]. But I don't think men are the enemy. I think women are the enemy. I know that when I'm sitting in a restaurant and a really beautiful woman walks in, who’s skinny, I instinctively think, 'Oh, she's really skinny and beautiful and I’m really fat and ugly.' Every man I speak to always says they find that kind of woman gross, and they prefer a bit more meat on their ladies. So it's more of a competitive thing. It's weird. It's just really unhealthy and we're our own worst enemy."
Lily responded to the huge wave of criticism that flooded her Twitter account by tweeting: "unless your standing outside downing st with one of those Australian Bush Hats with dirty tampons in place of corks "shouting equal rights for men and women" you've got no place telling me what kind of feminist I am. Fuck off."
