I use the term feminist, but I also feel that it should have an expiration date.
To all intents and purposes in the west, it has expired. In many non-western countries, it would only cause disharmony between the sexes. In other non-western countries, it's obvious that women are being treated as second class citizens, and that is something that is wrong to anyone who cares about equality. But in the west, it addressed obvious and necessary rights for women decades ago, and won those rights. Now though feminism is fighting against bogus inequalities, and creating very real inequalities (ask your husband). It's an industry. Many feminists are enjoying the benefits of victimhood more than actually taking on the responsibility of someone who is no longer a victim. That's a scary transformation for many feminists, who prefer the shelter feminism (and victimhood) provides. Guaranteed benefits versus actual empowerment - ironically feminism disempowers women to choose the guaranteed benefits.
I don't feel that feminism needs to be about being a victim...at least, not any more. I could go into a long blah-blah on how I feel about it, but that's boring. Besides, I'm not here to wave a banner. I'm here to help my husband through networking, advise, etc. I thank you for your welcome, though! :toothy5:I welcome everyone to read my introduction. I really am desperate for help.
I guess to anyone who does read it, feminism can be seen as the Force (woo, Star Wars)!!! I'm a feminist Jedi fighting the feminist Sith...Hahahaha!!! I'm really not okay with some of the liberties that women have taken, especially when it comes to divorce and custody. Grrr. I guess if I gave up my label, I wouldn't be allowed to infiltrate the Siths' lair. Crap...I need to cut down on RPG thinking. Did ANY of that make sense??? *sips much-needed coffee* Forgive me, I didn't sleep well.
