I’m running late so poke your heads in here. Here’s the only tangent I would want to go off on, if I had time. I think I reject a definition of feminism that says “men and women are equal” unless there are a ton of caveats, because I think masculinity, as currently performed, can be pretty fucked up.
I think aiming for men and women being equal sets the bar pretty damn low and requires nothing of men but for them to “wait for us to catch up.”
I want men and women to change. I want a paradigm shift.
To me, feminism is the radical notion that women are human and that being human is not equivalent to suffering.
