coffeedrinker:  Yes, I do want all those things, which is why I believe in gender equality. Actually I believe in equality for everyone, not just gender or race dependent. So you can consider me a feminist and that’s totally fine with me. I just won’t call myself that.

“I’m a rich, successful, white actress who has never faced inequality and so I won’t fight for the equality of women less privileged than I am” is kind of what I got from her interview. Never been a fan of her, much less so now.

coffeedrinker:  Maybe so, but I have that choice! My main problem with the term feminism is women who use it tend to argue with other women who don’t make the same choices they do. Isn’t the whole point that I should have a choice? So if my choice is to be stubborn about not call myself a feminist, it’s still my decision.

I saw a really great post today about feminism: 

2015 trend: answering the question “are you a feminist?” with the question “are you not?” in order to make not being a feminist sound more like the ridiculous, illogical thing that it is.

Kassy:  yes and no….it depends who you ask. If you’re interested, you should look up “choice feminism”.

Sorry, but I agreed with everything she said. What does being a feminist mean? That you have to be just like men or that you have the right to choose the life that you want, whether it be working or being a housewife?

MrsWoods47:  having the choice to live the life you want is the hallmark of being a feminist, whether you work, stay at home, have kids, or don’t have kids. A lot of people still assume feminism is the bra burning, militant movement of the 60s and 70s and it’s not. it’s about breaking the barriers of a patriarhcal society that affect both women (pay discrepancy, health care access, civil rights in other countries as well as our own), and men (breaking down the “macho” stereotype). Sure, there are some militant feminists out there, but they are a smaller percentage than you think. 

Poeple who claim not to support feminism baffle me.

stephncollins:  did she actually say she doesn’t support feminism? She just said she wouldn’t call herself a feminist. I don’t really think there’s anything wrong with that. And don’t get me wrong, I love that I have the choice to work or to stay home, but like Kaley, I’m kind of old fashioned and get more excitement out of taking care of my husband by cooking for him and doing other stuff around the house for him. I’m just being honest here. He does help me, but DH’s mai role in our household is the be the bread winner. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I do think it’s great that other women can chose to do differently if they want to, but I don’t want to.

I can’t get past the haircut.  She opens her mouth but I just stare, transfixed, at her hair.

I suggest you never check out the tumblr “why I don’t need feminism”

Infuriating.

Words tend to change over time, and many people are ignorant (willfully or not) to the present meaning or the possible evolution that is occurring. One of these words, unfortunately, is “feminism,” which had obviously caused problems.
