I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own

Q:you're only a feminist because it benefits you, what you've just said is basically that you're not gonna bother trying to help those women in other countries because women in this country aren't treated perfectly.
No - that’s not what I said at all. That’s what you said to be irritating. What I said is that women’s rights are absolute and shouldn’t be compared and contrasted as negotiation points or distractions from the specific issues we all face, locally. The suffering of one group of women should not be used by asshole sexists who’d like to pat themselves on the back for treating “their” women better - something we’re apparently supposed to remember to be grateful for. Nor should that suffering be detached from other women’s complicity in it by virtue of patriotism or class or race or any number of other factors. I’m a feminist because women as a class, globally, pay dearly for our lower status in society, our lack of political power, our exclusion from religious authority, our objectification in media, and our physical vulnerability in environments of toxic masculinity that hurt everyone, men and boys included.
