i get where you’re coming from honestly i used to think that way too but i think a lot of labels really are important; if you have no problem with feminism then you acknowledge that there are a lot of ways that femininity is made out to be inferior by people, which leads to people being made to feel inferior just because they happen to enjoy things that are perceived as feminine; that’s why it’s important to celebrate femininity and all the things it is associated with. this is also true for transgender people, disabled people, and people of color: mainstream media tends to either minimize their importance because it prioritizes the voices of white, straight, cisgender men. if everyone were to pretend that these labels don’t matter or dont exist all we’d really be doing is further marginalizing ourselves, because society already DOES pretend we don’t matter/don’t exist, and it’s that kind of cultural attitude which has led to us historically being murdered, denied jobs or housing, etc. at higher rates than white, straight cisgender men
