These days, everyone is talking about equal rights for everyone. Whether is predjudice against race, sexual orientation, or gender, the world is always at war with what is considered to be the "right path" to take down these roads. The beauty of this age, however, is that there are online blog sites that can help troubled people through these times of inequality and injustice. Blog sites like Rookie. Rookie was created by Tavi Gevinson when she was only 13 years old, and even then, she had a different view on the world. She saw feminism as something fun. Something that was to be celebrated and shared with everyone who cared to stop and read. And if you didn't care to read, so what? The point of Rookie is to be whatever it is you want to be with yourself.
Rookie is based around the "be who you are and say what you feel" motto, encouraging Tavi's friends and fellow bloggers to partner with her and write the amazing stories of embarassment, hilarity, seriousness, and all around truthfulness. The blog gives women a place to read about other women who don't strive to be what society sets them up to be. It showcases the importance of being yourself, no matter what the rest of the world wants you to be.
Rookie, and the online blogs like it, are a beacon to all women who call themselves feminist. You don't have to be the stereotypical feminist that are often poorly portrayed as being crazy. The idea is to break that stereotype and showcase a new kind of feminist. A feminist people will be proud to call themselves. A feminist that can say what they truely feel without being judged or harrassed by anyone else who has the idea that women are inferior to men.
Feminist blogging sites give feminism a whole new meaning by translating it into something that almost anybody can relate it to. The world of feminism is changing all around us with a little help from the Rookies.
