I am 21 years old and my girlfriend feels
very strongly about the feminist movement...
and I am also a supporter, but obviously not
as much as she. When we talk about the subject,
we often don't agree on all of the details involved.
Being passionate about the subject, she will
get upset and I try to explain to her that although
we both support equal rights, we may still disagree
on some of the issues...
When I try telling her
that I am a supporter too, she tells me I am
not, because I don't know what it's like to be
a women and be scared of certain things. Is there
some way for me to help her understand my situation,
or is my thinking just incorrect?
I would appreciate however you can help because
the situation is beginning to jeopardize our
Thanks so much.
