Emma Watson on Feminism
Her UN speech was absolutely amazing. She hit this one out of the park. This is what feminism is about folks - men AND women. Please take a moment to watch, this was truly moving.





It makes me so sad that she is being attacked and threatened for such a beautiful message.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

That may be a hoax (the 4chan thing) but yes Emma rocks this out of the park.

True, them actually having naked photos is likely a hoax (I mean come on, those would have been the first leaked once hacked), it is just disgusting the kinds of threats and harassment she is getting. Just proves her point that women are still treated badly for trying to be strong positive role models.

RE: Emma Watson on Feminism
Good that she is explaining feminism correctly

Kind of redundant trying to make feminism the jesus of movements, seeing how HUMANISM! in general takes care of all of it. Now you can be a humanist and a feminist, but when did feminism mean, when men need rights we help them too? Also don't quote it as feminist caring, because they can, however definitions of feminism mean for women's rights only. Plus the video won't play for me.

RE: Emma Watson on Feminism
I didn't realise who she was until she said "Harry Potter".

I thought she looked cute.

It did cross my mind that she wouldn't be saying some of that stuff if she was a man... e.g. 4:57 - 4:59

There's no "maybe" here, it's a hoax.

RE: Emma Watson on Feminism
I think it's sort of sad.

I mean, good on her for what she said and so on. But it's a sad reflection on the state of the wolrd that they have to get an entertainer for people to listen.

The UN appoints famous people as Goodwill Ambassadors to gain attention for a cause. Why is that sad?

Besides, Watson just graduated from an Ivy League university (Brown), so she's no dummy.

You know *organism-ism* encompasses not only humans but *all life* so we should rather campaign for that.
