Does Feminism Lead To Divorce?

There are a lot of fucking ignorant misconceptions surrounding feminism, one of which is the idea that feminists are often unable to marry (which is why they are feminists) or that being a feminist will lead to divorce.

Unfortunately, Audrie’s … Continue reading Audrie, Daisy & Rape Culture
