Flawed People Not Flawed Movement

I’m busy with camp this week so here is a great quote to get you thinking 🙂

In truth, feminism is flawed because it is a movement powered by people and people are inherently flawed. For whatever reason, we hold feminism to an unreasonable standard where the movement must be everything we want and must always make the right choices. When feminism falls short of our expectations, we decide the problem is feminism rather than the flawed people who act in the name of the movement.” – Bad Feminist, Roxane Gay, pg. 5-6
