Feminism isn’t about empowering women to take positions men typically have. (I mean, yeah, you can do that, and I encourage you to do that because you’re more than capable of it, but only if that’s what you aspire to do.) It’s not about saying “this is how to be an empowered woman that kicks ass,” it’s about letting women define success and liberation for themselves. It’s not about telling other women what they should do, it’s about telling women they should do what they want to do. It’s letting women do whatever they fuck they want, ensuring that it’s what they want: If you want to be a housewife, be a housewife. If you want to be a sex worker, be a sex worker. If you want to be a politician, be a politician. If you want to be an entrepreneur, be an entrepreneur. But let the decision be your own—one that makes you happy, not one that you’ve been subjected to.
We all find joy and strength and contempt in different positions, so instead of belittling a woman for doing what empowers her personally, offer support since she’s pursuing her passions, achieving her goals, and doing what makes her feel good.
