TIME debuted their annual list of words that they think should be banned for the following year. They set up a poll that consisted of words like”yaaasssss,” “bae,” and “turnt;” however they also threw in the word “feminist” as if they all belonged in the same breathe.
Their reason behind thinking feminist should be banned was, “You have nothing against feminism itself, but when did it become a thing that every celebrity had to state their position on whether this word applies to them, like some politician declaring a party? Let’s stick to the issues and quit throwing this label around like ticker tape at a Susan B. Anthony parade.”
After hearing their reasoning of course we…disagree!
Whether every singer deems themselves a feminist but doesn’t push the values that help fight for women’s rights, doesn’t mean we do away with it. Thankfully we’re not the only people that feel this way.
Twitter was quite irate to learn that feminist was being compared to made-up terms like “obvi” and that it was gaining the most votes on their annual poll. Flip the page to check out Twitter’s outcry towards TIME’s wanting to have us transported back to the ideals of the ’20s.
