why I am a feminist1. Killing infant females is not culture.

6. Slut shaming (or woman-hating) is never acceptable.

7. Being blamed for rape is NOT ok.

8. “You’re such a girl” is considered an insult.

9. Acid is thrown on women’s faces because they refused a proposal.

10. There are more than two genders.

I end my piece with these words:
