All of my friends they are working at this time so if I go out it’s just only me. So I find a coffee shop to read book or play phone. I used to run with my friend. I think I don’t need too quiet because it’s so uncomfortable such as the library, it’s not free when you want to talk. I like to go out because if you stay at home for a long time, it won’t be nice I think. It will make me feel lonely. I like cooking but I’m lazy. I cook just when I want to it so it’s not fixed. I don’t like takeaway food because it’s not delicious so I prefer cook at home, but because I have something else to do so I can’t cook. He always work until night time. I have to order some healthy food so mostly I choose what I want to eat. I just look the place online first and make the reservation with my friends, then we go out.

There’s an internet celebrity named “Papi” whose child follows her husband’s surname are talked about a lot on Weibo.
For all the time Papi gives a impression of independenceãstanding on her own feet ãdeciding for herself and so on, so some people take her as “feminist”. However, that’s totally different. She is a independent woman I think.
Independent women is what we advocated and it’s not equal to feminist. Independent women’s spirit and will do not depend on others, they can try to find a solution instead of asking for help at the first time when things happen. They won’t give up something because they are not male. All in all, they are not judging things or people by gender. But feminist does.
Feminist always sets man and woman against each other. They tell what should man do , what should woman do. But in fact no one can tell other people what should do or not.
We can do things by following our own heart rather than others. It will be nice if both men and women are independent.

We advocate being independent women and it’s not equal to/the same as being feminists. The spirit of/will of independent women dictates that they should not depend on others, they can try to find a solution/solve problems instead of asking for help when things happen/happen at first hand. They won’t give up on something/won’t stop pursuing their dreams just because they are not male. All in all, they doÂ Â not judge things or people by gender. However/But, feminists do.
Feminists always pitÂ men against women. They dictate/order what men should do, what women should do. But, in fact, no one can tell other people whatÂ they should or should not do.Â
