ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY
Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.
Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?
This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”
At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”
"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.
"How is white a feminine color?"
She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.
The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.
A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.
And the son is more mature than her.
Okay but if white is a feminine color and there are white males in the world…..didn’t she technically just call all the white males, including her son, feminine?
this movie is fucking art
She’s saying she’s not a feminist because it discriminates and here you are literally discriminating her for not being a feminist. Thanks for being a living example of why it is an unnecessary discriminating movement.
The reason people are frustrated with her is because feminism is literally the opposite of discriminating. If you or anyone else would take 2 seconds to google it or just pay attention, people would realize that feminism is about defining, establishing, and defending EQUAL political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women!!
People take offense when high profile female role models say that “I’m not feminist because I like men” or “I’m not a feminist because it discriminates” because it is literally spreading false information.
And before you retort with the atypical, feeble excuse that “I know some feminists and they hate men and don’t shave and a 3rd stereotype”, just don’t. Because that is the same exact mindset that perpetuates the broad stroking of entire organizations, groups, and even races.
So the next time you (or anyone, as this is a worldwide problem) would care to continue spreading misinformation and brainwashing the people around you whom are small minded enough to be convinced, please just don’t. I’m sure Fox News will pick up your slack.
In short, I’m a male and I need feminism because people don’t actually know what feminism is.
