"I'm not a feminist, but..." - Why do women say this? We get to do what you want, be who you want. Love taking care of your man? Do it - awesome! Marriage isn't for you/you have non-traditional priorities? GREAT! That's the point! Don't say your not a feminist.It just makes you seem silly. All women in general) should at least google the definition before claiming not to be feminist. It is not a dirty word. Femininity isn't ant Feminist. And you can be a good mother, wife AND a feminist!
Fuck that. If you want equal rights, you're a feminist. That's it. Being a feminist doesn't mean you hate men. It doesn't mean you think women should be in control of everything. It means you want equality. How can that ever be a bad thing? It isn't something you need to be ashamed of and it isn't something you need to hide or dumb down.
