feminism, anyone?

It takes a lot of courage to call yourself a feminist these days. Even very liberal people avoid the label. And men? Forget about men referring to themselves as feminists (yes, it is possible to be a male feminist.)

How about you? Are you a feminist? Know anyone who openly calls themselves a feminist? If so, do they use finger quotes when they say it? Know any men who would wear the label?


  1. i think the problem is that the term has been hijacked in so many ways that i wouldn't want to be looked at. i honestly don't even know what it means anymore.

  2. I think it means that you support the equality of opportunity for all women, that you support it using political means if necessary, and that you are against discrimination and bias against women and traditional gender roles on a personal and a societal basis. How's that?
