Is "feminist" a bad word?
I'm going to keep my opinion out of this because I want to know your honest opinions. Is feminist a bad word? Does it have a negative connotation in your mind? Why or why not?
I think that over the years it has developed a bad reputation. Mostly from people who have pushed their agenda versus fighting for equality. I think that it has gone from being about fair and equal treatment for women to more of women are better than men...that is not the message I ever want to present to my kids.
I can see that. I think a very vocal minority may have ruined the word for the purpose it was designed. People hear feminist and they think bra burning lesbian man hater. Not that there's anything wrong with bra burning or lesbians, but that's not what it is about, at all. I love my bra, haha.
Exactly...it's a good thought that has just gone wrong. It would be nice to have an organization or movement that stuck true to it's idea.
