F-Bombs for Feminism: A Twenty-Something’s Response

October 24, 2014 | Amy Sapp

If proclaiming expletives is the new form of empowerment for toddlers and young children, then I don’t understand the definition of empowerment that feminists are selling.  Recently, the group FCKH8 released this video of “potty-mouthed princesses using bad words for a good cause.” NeW Founder and President Karin Agness weighed in on TIME yesterday.

Do these feminists want to teach children that the only way to get their voice heard on atrocities such as rape or the perceived divide between men and women’s wages is to scream “f*** you!” to politicians and peers? Do they in good faith want to encourage people that, in order to reach self-actualization of one’s beliefs, you simple need to yell “f*** it?”

The point here is not that the issues discussed in this video are not important to address. Truly, conservatives have their own opinions about these issues, too, and would love to join the conversation- if only they were not afraid that the other side of the argument will simply yell profanities in response to any ideology that doesn’t align with their leftist viewpoints.

The point is rather how these feminists are executing their campaigns. The negative language and attitudes of feminists and liberals in today’s society are not headed in the direction of positive change. Rather, these toxic reactions to those who have different ideals are simply among the many reasons we conservatives must continue to speak out courageously.
