Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Whose Definition of Feminism Is It Anyway? (With New Improved and Expanded Conversations!)
AManFromEarthLet's get to twerk!The King in the SwampRegistered Userregular
Just what the fuck is a feminist? There are as many flavors of feminism as there are people engaged in discussion, but is it possible to create a workable definition? Can men be feminists? What about women who take their husband's last name? Sarah Palin: great feminist icon or greatest feminist icon?
For me I'd say the following from wiki is the best encapsulation of my views:
Liberal feminism asserts the equality of men and women through political and legal reform. It is an individualistic form of feminism, which focuses on women's ability to show and maintain their equality through their own actions and choices. Liberal feminism uses the personal interactions between men and women as the place from which to transform society. According to liberal feminists, all women are capable of asserting their ability to achieve equality, therefore it is possible for change to happen without altering the structure of society. Issues important to liberal feminists include reproductive and abortion rights, sexual harassment, voting, education, "equal pay for equal work", affordable childcare, affordable health care, and bringing to light the frequency of sexual and domestic violence against women
This is of course not the only category, and there's a handy wiki on it down below.
