Put Away The Vagina Costumes, Ladies. THIS Is What Real Feminism Looks Like.

In recent days, many so-called feminists have donned non-mandated hijabs, strapped on pussyhats and stepped into full-blown vagina costumes to allegedly push for gender (which I'm told is a social construct?) equality, all while patting themselves on the back for their supposed courage and activism.

But of course, protesting for Big Daddy Government to fund your birth control and the slaughter of your unborn baby, or wearing a piece of non-mandated religious garb in solidarity with women who are often mandated to wear it is not real feminism. At all. 

By contrast, in an act of real feminism, at least four female chess players who have rightfully earned a stop at this year's Women's World Chess Championship held in Tehran, Iran—Carolina Lujan, Nazi Paikidze-Barnes, Irina Krush and Mariya Muzychuk—have courageously boycotted the event over the hijab mandate. 

“Some consider a hijab part of culture,” wrote Paikidze, in a September Instagram post. “But, I know that a lot of Iranian women are bravely protesting this forced law daily and risking a lot by doing so. That’s why I will NOT wear a hijab and support women's oppression.”

Women in Iran and other Muslim-majority countries where the hijab is a requirement by law can face severe punishment, such as acid attacks, for noncompliance. 

A Change.org petition launched by the young U.S. chess star demands a change in venue from the World Chess Federation because of the hijab mandate. 

“These issues reach far beyond the chess world,” reads the petition. “While there has been social progress in Iran, women’s rights remain severely restricted. This is more than one event; it is a fight for women’s rights.”

When no venue change was granted, these four heroes decided to use their platform and their voice to combat the female oppression via boycott. 

Paikidze rebuked those whom criticized her move to boycott, writing, "For those saying that I don't know anything about Iran: I have received the most support and gratitude from the people of Iran, who are facing this situation every day." Which is wholly unsurprising. 

The championships commenced on February 10 and will end on March 5. 

To whom it may concern: STEP AWAY FROM THE VAGINA COSTUME and reevaluate what real feminism looks like.
