When I was 12, revealed to my mommy that I don’t believe in God. She looked at me wild-eyed and screamed, “So when you’re laying there dying on the hospital bed, who is going to save you?? SCIENTISTS?!”
And I said, “Yes, mommy, they’re called Doctors.”

They’re like the PETA or Dan Savage of feminism. First off, they are very Islamophobic, as seen by their unnecessary protests outside of mosques in countries where Islam is a minority. Second of all, they’re the epitome of white liberal feminism. And their protests have included anti-women sentiments, such as when they hopped on stage during a fashion show and harassed the models.
They say they are trying to desexualize breasts, but they only use skinny, white, conventionally attractive models to gain media attention, which is the exact opposite of what they claim to stand for. They are using sexual appeal to get their message across. Perhaps if they used fat or disabled women or women of color, their message would be a lot more pure, but the fact of the matter is that they tailor their feminism for the male gaze. Breasts are now the only way for women to get attention, and they are happy with that.
FEMEN is also controlled by a MAN named Victor Svyatski, who has made very misogynistic comments and has admitted to using the “prettiest girls” for his protests for obvious reasons. All he is doing with FEMEN is pushing out the “self-objectification is empowerment” message, which is good for him so he can get his dick sucked by his followers, but bad for women. He is well known for referring to his hand-picked women “submissive” and “bitches” and you-don’t-even-want-to-know what else. He is vile and nasty, and FEMEN’s love of sexualizing women is apparent in their decision to use naked, thin, able-bodied white women for everything, including in their support for the “bring back our girls” campaign, which is fucking gross and insensitive.
Quoting several news sources: "When the Femen founder finally spoke to Ms Green, he sought to justify his role within the organisation and acknowledged the paradox of being a “patriarch” running a feminist protest group. “These girls are weak,” he says in the film.“They don’t have the strength of character. They don’t even have the desire to be strong. Instead, they show submissiveness, spinelessness, lack of punctuality, and many other factors which prevent them from becoming political activists. These are qualities which it was essential to teach them.” Mr Svyatski insists to Ms Green that his influence on the group is positive. However, when he is asked directly whether he started Femen “to get girls”, he replies: “Perhaps yes, somewhere in my deep subconscious.” One of the Femen campaigners talks of the relationship between the women and the movement’s founder as being akin to “Stockholm syndrome”, in which hostages feel sympathy for their captors.”
FEMEN just sucks all-around in everything they do.
