This isn't going to be a long post. The idea behind this one is simple. If you're gonna deviate from what is the norm you're gonna receive backlash but that's all the more reason why you should keep doing what you're doing. Whether your preferred way of deviation from the norm is to be a feminist or atheist or someone who fights for people's rights, you're going to have a bad time.
Which when you think about it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, because you're doing what is good for everyone so why do people discourage you? The weird thing is that those who are in power do not like to let go of that power, which is why they constantly try to gain more power. They want the power imbalance. So they naturally have go against radical ideas such as feminism, workers rights, software freedom etc. to maintain the power imbalance. Their power let's them drive the society opinion and that is why my friend general public hate feminists.
Doing it alone can be tiresome which is why you don't have to and you shouldn't do it alone. Find others who dream of a better world for everyone and work together. Don't loose hope. Prioritize short term and long term goals. Celebrate small wins. Do not loose hope of a better world. It's is not stupid to want a world where everyone is happy and content.
