Years ago, I read a book that pointed out an all-too common phrase: "I'm not a feminist, but..." followed by a statement that pretty well indicated feminist values. That statement was a reminder that the term feminist has picked up some nasty connotations over time, to the point that even people who are concerned about gender and about empowering women are sometimes afraid to take on that name.
So, with all the opposition to the term "feminist" that really is out there, here's my question for you, dear readers:
Do you call yourself a feminist? Why or why not?
