    Some more from a similar quote - "and if we get beaten we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we're nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and if we don't we're frigid and if we love women it's because we can't get a "real" man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we're neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect childcare we're selfish and if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and unfeminine and because we still can't get an adequate safe contraceptive..."

Amen! I'm a femmi gardening, cooking, mild, person, but I am a person, and my worth is defined by my goals and my values alone. Feminism doesn't mean being anything in particular, just freedom to be yourself, and not have your worth defined by others.

Individualism! Not just seeing women as a giant herd or different faces with the same mind.

Women do NOT need to become male'like in order to be treated equally. Embrace your femininity as your strength if it is how you feel! If women must become like men in order to be seen as equal, then in essence, the men have won again. They have stripped us of who we are and converted us into "them". POWER in the FEMININE!
