People Love This Woman's Reaction To A Guy Saying Feminism Is "Inequality"

"I believe in equality, but I feel like feminism believes in almost inequality."

Posted on

If, like me, you're reality TV obsessed, you might be watching Love Island atm. It's seriously the highlight of the summer.

For those who haven't seen it, it's basically a UK reality show where a bunch of guys and girls move into a luxury villa for six weeks in the hope of finding ~love~.

As you can imagine, there's a ton of drama already, and last night it was Camilla and Jonny's turn to take centre stage when a disagreement about feminism came up.

To bring you up to speed, Camilla and Jonny became a "couple" last week and have been getting to know each other. Until last night, things had actually been going pretty well.

To bring you up to speed, Camilla and Jonny became a "couple" last week and have been getting to know each other. Until last night, things had actually been going pretty well.

It all started when Jonny said he "wouldn't let" a woman pay on the first date, or on any date, and that he'd feel "almost emasculated" if the woman paid instead.

Camilla's reaction said it all...

She followed it up by saying that she'd feel "awkward" if she didn't pay half, especially in the initial stages of dating.

The conversation then took a quick turn when Jonny asked: "You're a feminist, aren't you?" And when Camilla said "Shouldn't we all be feminists? Surely you believe in equality," Jonny laughed before sharing his opinion.

Instead of taking the hint to stop talking, Jonny steamrolled ahead.

Camilla pointed out that there had been "several generations that have been preferential to men" and that they needed to redress the balance. This was Jonny's reaction.

The conversation concluded when Camilla asked Jonny if he seriously thought women had the same opportunities as men.

The exchange clearly upset Camilla, who said: "I feel so stupid, this is exactly why I didn't want to do this, start liking someone before I got to know them."

Meanwhile, people on Twitter were reacting to the shitstorm live.

Jonny: "You're a feminist aren't you?" Camilla: "Shouldn't we all be?" #LoveIsland

And many clearly disagreed with Jonny's opinions.

What is wrong with people? How is Camilla overreacting because she doesn't want to date someone who doesn't believe in feminism? #LoveIsland

Can we stop calling feminism a "difference of opinion", bourbons are better than digestives is an opinion, human rights aren't #LoveIsland

Seeing men moan about Camilla talking about "something as small" as equality is exactly why we need feminism in the first place. #LoveIsland

But not everybody agreed with Camilla's reaction.

Ah that's a shame 😫 I really like camilla but she needs to remember even in a happy couple you still don't agree on everything πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Oh Camilla I adore you but he didn't exactly say he was a nazi

Or how upset she got after it happened.

Camilla babe you can't cry because someone has a different opinion to you?? I'm confused πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ #LoveIsland

While other people were just left questioning the...important things instead.

"I can't believe I kissed him not knowing his political views" Camilla I've kissed people and not even known they're name lass #LoveIsland

Whatever happens next, we can't wait to see how this unfolds!
