Women everywhere need to stop whining about this. Who the F cares? Whatever she chooses to be or not be, believe or not believe, and say or not say is none of your business. You’re not doing a good job of representing feminism if you shame, mock, or judge women who aren’t feminists like you. You’re a hypocrite for doing that and frankly I find it quite ironic. Now get over yourself.

“Your definition of feminism was wrong, a pp schooled you.”

Umm… What? I never defined feminism, I just said I don’t like what the connotation can be.

 

“there’s a difference between being stubborn for a cause and being flat out wrong and refusing to admit it.”

I’m being stubborn for my own personal cause. Why should you care what I call myself? Like I said, you can call me a feminist if you want and I won’t be offended.  And what exactly am I wrong about?

 

“Are you a democrat? Republican? Independent? Those are political ideologies that mean something! Do you refuse to “label” yourself politically?”

Actually yes, I don’t label myself politically because I’m somewhere in between, I don’t agree fully with either side.

 

“Are you a female or male? Or do you refuse to “label” according to sex? Mammal, amphibian, reptile, other?”

This is an extremely rude comment. There are many people that don’t label themselves due to sex. There are females who identify as men and vice versa.

 

“Now you grandstand and say not to label you, as if the term is still too dirty to apply to you.”

“I’m a feminist. It’s not a dirty word!”

“Or should we abandon all socio-polical brandings just to make your argument sound?”

I never asked you not to label me. I just said I won’t label myself. You can call me whatever you wish. And I never said feminism is a dirty word, not sure where you got that.

 

You seem to be getting in a huff over a small comment of mine, that I don’t call myself a feminist. I still believe in all the values of feminism (gender equality) and do a lot of things in community to promote that. Why does what I call myself matter so much?

ClaudiaKishi:  I know, and thank you! 🙂 I am totally supportive of women who identify themselves as feminists, but don’t judge me because that’s not a word I use to describe myself.

Disclaimer: I have never heard of this woman and don’t understand what “People” is, either. I’m presuming it’s a trashy magazine a bit like Heat.

Let’s see if I understand…

– I have not experienced inequality, therefore inequality does not exist and I am not a feminist.

– I have not experienced racism, therefore racism does not exist. I therefore cannot be opposed to racism.

– I have never had cancer, therefore cancer does not exist, and I can’t hate cancer.

THEREFORE…

Oh happy day! The world is a happy, happy place! Nothing bad exists, because I have not personally felt victimised by it. It’s like the Matrix, only with me as the STAR! I think, therefore the world is exactly as I think it!

That’s great news. I’m off to think myself into a mansion with a sports car and a young Brad Pitt. Wish me luck guys!

Everyone should be a feminist? Wouldn’t that take away the choices that feminism is supposed to support for all women? 

I refuse to identify as a feminist because I believe that feminism protects the rights of affluent white women. While my ancestors toiled in sugar cane fields and endured horrendous abuse, the white women who were part of the ruling class lived in the lap of luxury. They were not given the same rights as men but at least they weren’t slaves who were regularly raped and beaten. The suffragettes didn’t give a shit that black women couldn’t vote until the 1960s in some states. Most feminist icons are white women from privileged backgrounds. The few women of color who are prominent feminists are just examples of how tokenism does not equal diversity. It must be so wonderful to be able to focus on sexism, without the daily injustices that come with being a hated visible minority. 

No white woman can tell me what ideologies to embrace as a black woman. Black women endure certain struggles that “feminism” simply doesn’t care about. Even on this very thread, only ONE person mentioned Kaley Cuoco’s race and class as a possible reason for her ignorance. Instead of complaining about the glass ceiling, we need to discuss the women of color who aren’t even allowed in the office buildings because of educational and income gaps. Let’s not forget the good ol’ institutionalized racism. I wish I had a dollar for every time some moron stuttered “Wow, I wasn’t expecting…you don’t sound…” when I walked into an interview.

Kassy:  

It matters what you call yourself because so called “feminists” think that women should not have the choice to disregard that label. Ironic isn’t it?

I vote to be a humanist. The free dictionary.com’s definition is:

1. A believer in the principles of humanism  

2. One who is concerned with the interests and welfare of humans  

I am a feminist, in pure definition of the word. I believe in equality. The end. 

I whole-heartedly prefer the idea of being concerned with the interest of all people. Lets come together as a species Rather than compete. Man vs. Woman. Black vs White. Republican vs. Democrat.
