Roxane Gay

No individual is flawless, and neither is any form of feminism. Instead of waiting for an ideal feminist model to appear or striving to conform to a predetermined mold, embrace the idea of being an imperfect or "bad" feminist. Every voice is invaluable in shaping the feminist movement. The more individuals labeled as "bad feminists" raise their voices, the more the feminist movement can grow and become inclusive. Initiating conversations that explore the interplay of race, gender identity, and sexual orientation within feminism can revolutionize our mindset and that of society at large.

Additionally, politicians are contributing to the problem, as demonstrated by former Republican Congressman Todd Akin. He coined the term "legitimate rape" during a debate on women's abortion rights. He suggested that if a woman experienced "legitimate rape," her body would prevent pregnancy. This notion is scientifically incorrect and problematic. It is important to note that there is no distinction between legitimate and illegitimate rape; it's all just sexual assault. It is essential to clearly convey this fact to everyone in order to end rape culture.
