I think people like the woman in the comic shouldn't be considered feminists. Feminism isn't all about choice but choice is a big part of it.

This and 10000 times this.
So true... There's no feminism anymore, now is against-menism.
Hmm, I adopt a more don't mess with your body, it's for you, take care of it approach....which I'm sure most feminists don...but yeah that wouldnt really include abortion.
While it's not correct to blame women for some choices, stating "all choices a female could possibly make is correct because it's her business and she's free" is not correct either. it's not just her business at all. It's very naive to believe women can't be sexist or influenced by sexism in our society. We shouldn't encourage women to keep on abiding to the objectification of females the way they do [for example], that is harmful to everyone. We should make them see and fight these tendencies. What a glorious day will it be when no woman subjects themselves into posing naked on a magazines or being featured in a pornographic movie or dance naked or have sex for money, all to appeal male as sexual objects. only then we will have equality. and saying all that is fine will only keep us from that.

It's sad that actually most feminists even believe all of this. They are simply mysogynists who claim they do good.
What's even worse is feminists who believe that women should have more than men while calling it equal rights...
People just... Ugh. XD

And great comic, I enjoy your style of art, it's really relaxing and pleasant. <3

If some women dislike certain choices that other women make, I think that instead of trying to create a third-wave feminism deluge, they should rationalize and explain wherefore they are against these choices. For example, one could create a documentary or write a newspaper article that not breastfeeding one's child could lead to a heightened risk of breast cancer, however, one shouldn't *force* women to breastfeed their children or insult them if they don't. And exceptions should always be considered: some women get plastic surgery to fix broken noses or missing ears, for instance, which in turn helps them breath through their nostrils or hear better.
As for being against sex workers, there is little one can do: prostitution is a predictable by-product of capitalism, and has nothing to do with women or feminism as such; it can only be prevented on a socio-political level.

So this is called the "third wave" of feminism, what was the first and second?
Please explain, I'm genuinely curious :)

As for this third wave, it just sounds like a small group women that want to control a mass of women, while claiming men oppress women.
*Eye roll* Women oppressing women,

First-wave feminism refers to a period of feminist activity during the 19th and early twentieth century throughout the world, particularly in the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and the United States. It focused on de jure (officially mandated) inequalities, primarily on gaining women's suffrage (the right to vote).

Second-wave feminism is a period of feminist activity that first began in the early 1960s in the United States, and eventually spread throughout the Western world. In the United States the movement was initially called the Women's Liberation Movement and lasted through the early 1980s.

At a time when mainstream women were making job gains in the professions, the military, the media, and sports in large part because of second-wave feminist advocacy, second-wave feminism also focused on a battle against violence with proposals for marital rape laws, establishment of rape crisis and battered women's shelters, and changes in custody and divorce law.

The third wave feminism is just a bunch of privileged (and mostly) white women bitching about how tough they have it and attempting to get as many extra benefits and gains as it is humanly possible while ignoring actual women issues and downright stomping on men.

Sadly, most people still think "Feminism" stands for good and identify themselves with such a corrupt movement.

Great comic :3
