Feminism: fem·i·nism / ˈfeməˌnizəm/• n. the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
Therefore, a feminist would adhere to these principles and their behavior, attitude, self expression and focus would reflect this. A feminist doesn’t always have to be a woman, but obviously most are. The usual response to telling someone you are a feminist is this: Oh, you must be a man hating dyke. LOL Yes, I’ve been told that, as have many women who live for the equality and liberation of women and ALL people. A comment on my last post caused me to pause and reflect on how many women like myself are perceived, especially when the F word gets mentioned. Personally, I think all women are feminists to one degree or another and of course I feel my writing reflects this. I’m pro woman, pro children, pro choice, anti abuse, anti oppression, anti any damn thing that is cruel and against the very nature of survival and the integrity of a human being, no matter the gender, race, orientation or religion. There, now I will leave you with some Janice, because she sings the blues like only a Feminist can…with soul baby, with soul. Enjoy.
