Had a discussion with my brother about the word Feminism, I have never thought about the word, or the term, when read out to me. But I am in practise, a feminist.
Most people think dreads, no shaving, lesbians and other terms when hearing the word. But the fact is that the everyday woman who lives here life, like anyone else with the "normal" strive to make her money, vote, discuss, make choices etc and believes and knows that she has the full right to performs this, is effectively a feminist.
So it's not only burning bras or braided underarm hair.
But the term doesn't define me as a person, it is a label that has been created because the society isn't rightfully aware of the fact that we are equal, and it goes for race,religion, culture and sexuality. I say this because as other social terms there are a greater spectrum, where the radials and fanaticals has to take term as an excuse to define what they are and why they behave un rational.
