Why are we so afraid of the “F” word?

Hey ARKers! I saw this comic today, and I think it really makes a good point about what, or rather who, feminists are.  I wanted to share it with you all, because I feel like so many people don’t understand what it means to be a feminist.  “Feminist” isn’t a dirty word, in fact, it’s something to be proud of. Because, if you aren’t a feminist, what does that make you???

Think about it.

  1. I definitely agree. I wish the term “feminist” did not have that negative stigma attached to it. So many people immediately associate feminist with some warped femi-nazi image that has been popularized by the media, and especially used pejoratively by conservatives who want to denigrate what the movement actually stands for. Moreover, some people actually believe we are post-feminism. Personally, the fact that people are afraid to call themselves feminist points to the conclusion that this is definitely not the case.
