A little while ago I was hanging out with freinds. We were playing fibbage and chatting. I don’t remember how it came up in conversation, but at one point I let the words “feminist” and “I am” slip out of my mouth in the same sentence. The look on my friend’s face would have been more suitable for my having slapped him across the face. He asked me “Really? You?!” I am not sure what he found so surprising. Did I do something or act in a way that indicated I was not feminist? I know I don’t own a “not a feminist” t-shirt. Or is it really that horrible of a word?
I don’t get it.
