So I’m trying to help one of my roommates with a homework assignment. She needed some examples of social injustices.
Me: How about misogyny?
Roommate: What’s that?
Me: You know hatred of women. ….you do know right?
Me: ….. Next you’re going to tell me you’re not a feminist.
Roommate: I’m not.
Me: You don’t believe in equal rites for women?!
Roommate: Oh I do, I do. I’m just a womanist.
Me:……..What does that mean?
Roommate: I don’t remember. I read it in a textbook and thought yeah that’s what I am.
Me: But you don’t know what it’s means….
Roommate: Nope, I really need to find that book.
I looked up womanism and it’s basically feminism for black woman. I haven’t told her, but figured it wouldn’t matter since she is black.
