Misogyny

Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒɪni/) is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification. Misogyny can occasionally be found within sacred texts of religions and mythologies, and various influential Western philosophers and thinkers have been described as misogynistic.

Mermaids hate misogyny

Females Need Each Other

Internalized misogyny is a growing problem simply because it seems no one wants to be educated on the subject. We are conditioned and brainwashed as young girls to believe that we must constantly be in competition with one another, the prize being a male's attention. We begin to tear each other down to bring ourselves up so much that it becomes internalized inside of us to look at a female with short-shorts and immediately believe she is a 'slut' because she is directing people's eyes towards herself instead of our-self. While this does not mean each and every girl must sing Kumbaya around a campfire, it does mean that we must stop judging girls just like ourselves simply based on their appearance because who knows what told us to do so.
