4 thoughts on “A conversation on feminism”

  1. sometimes the biggest feminists i meet are men and they don’t know it. that or they do, they just don’t wan to tag themselves as “feminists.” same with women – especially them educated/liberated/independent women … it’s like they’re so afraid to be described as a feminist because they don’t want the image of anger and man-hating attached to them. i suppose that makes sense. but it also seems to be displaying disregard for all the women before us who had to fling their fist in the air just to work as a school teacher or open her own bank account .. it was an actual fight back then as it is continues to be in certain corners today …ย 

    but, the part where i get confused is whether feminists are usually aggressive/vocal/angry/pissed off/man-hating or they have been misconstrued as such stereotypes are always what cements the character of “the other”…ย
