A wonderful post on feminism that puts things into perspective.
Confused Individual: Come on. Feminist? You?
Me: Yep. Feminist. Me
CI: But you’re married. To a man!
CI: But you’re not (whispers) a lesbian?
Me: (whispers) Nope.
CI: But you don’t hate men?
CI: But you shave your legs.
CI: But you clean your home. Confess! I’ve seen you with a Swiffer.
Me: Yep. I have a thing against dust.
CI: But you respect your friends who have chosen to be stay at home moms.
Me: Yep. They’re awesome, loving, and wonderful women who work hard.
CI: But you don’t keep a copy of The Feminine Mystique by your bed to read and highlight every night.
Me: Nope. Actually, I’m partial to detective stories. There are other books on feminism, by the way. Mary Wollstonecraft, John Stuart Mill, Carol Gilligan…
Me: Never mind.
CI: But I know you sometimes watch FOX.
