"Feminism is the radical notion that women are people." attributed to Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

I wear make-up, short skirts, and high heels. I pay for microdermabrasion. I get my hair done. I expect men to open doors for me. I am a feminist.

I go to strip clubs, fetish balls, and sex shops. I drink, enjoy sex and swear. I am a feminist.

I am the intellectual equal of any man but I accept that he is probably stronger than I and so can do things that I cannot. I will ask for help if I need it. I chose Paganism not out of a sense of reparation but for spiritual reasons. I am a complement to man, not superior to him. I believe that whether or not I sit on the street corner in a burqa and hijab, or splayed out like Sheela-na- Gig, I am not looking to be raped. Men are as accountable for their actions as I am. I am neither property nor chattel. I am equal.

There is no one way to define a feminist. Men can be just as feminist as women. So the next time you find something strikingly not fair, think before you say, "I'm not a feminist, but..." Because guess what? You are.
