The co-founder of the Brazilian chapter of the international radical feminist group Femen has publicly renounced feminism and apologized for her offensive behavior toward Christians. She has also published a book detailing the abuse she suffered at the hands of fellow feminists, and exposing the hatred underlying radical feminism.
According to LifeSiteNews, Sara Fernanda Giromin, known under the alias “Sara Winter,” first expressed her repentance back in October for aborting her first child, after acknowledging that the recent birth of her second child had changed her attitude toward abortion:
“I have repented of having had an abortion and today I ask for forgiveness. Yesterday marked one month after the birth of my baby and my life has taken on a new meaning. I’m writing this while he sleeps serenely on my lap. It is the greatest sensation in the world.
“Please, women who are desperate to abort, think carefully about it. I was very sorry I did it. I don’t want the same for you."
Since then, Giromin has repudiated feminism and gender ideology as well as her bisexuality, which she felt pressured to adopt in order to receive maximum respect in the movement:
“Lesbian and bisexual women have much more voice and respect within the movement, so in the search for recognition of my struggle, with each day that passed, I deconstructed my heterosexuality and was substituting it with an artificial bisexuality.”
She strongly denounced feminism as a religious "sect" that uses women as weapons of hate and promotes pedophilia:
“For the feminist sect women are not the inspiration, they are prime matter in the worst sense of the term. They are convenient objects useful for the purpose of inflaming hatred against the Christian religion, hatred against men, hatred against the beauty of women, hatred against the equilibrium of families. That’s what feminism is, and I can guarantee it is like that because I was on the inside!”
“I saw the feminist movement cover up for PEDOPHILES. I saw the feminist movement PERSECUTE WOMEN... I am a witness to the fact that today in the feminist movement women are not of any importance but serve as fuel for the fires of hatred that the feminist sect cannot allow to die.”
As LifeSiteNews notes, she has also expressed remorse for having offended Christians in January of 2014, when she engaged in a well publicized same-sex kiss with another seminude girl with a cross in the background, before the Church of Our Lady of Candelária in Rio de Janeiro. The photo of the two became iconic in Brazil of homosexual contempt for Christianity.
In a YouTube video entitled “I ask Christians for forgiveness for feminist protest,” Giromin said,
“Asking for forgiveness is certainly not an easy thing to do. We went way too far and ended up offending many religious and non-religious people,” she added, recognizing the stunt as a form of “blasphemy.”
In her book Bitch, No! Seven Times I Was Betrayed by Feminism, Giromin reveals that she was repeatedly pressured by fellow feminists to do drugs and engage in sex with strangers, and was even molested by a lesbian. She also recounts that when she once confided in a feminist academic that she was involved in prostitution as a teen, the woman affirmed her behavior and did nothing to help her find a way out. One of the few times she received affection, kindness, and understanding from a female friend, it was from an older, conservative “anti-feminist” who treated her like a daughter.
Giromin is donating a percentage of her book earnings to pro-life causes, and is now beginning to give talks against feminism, gender ideology and cultural Marxism. “Today I’m much happier and I’m able to help women more.”
