yes, yes I know...I'm a troll...anyhoo
do we really believe this? I must admit one of my biggest pet peeves is women who start with "I'm not a feminist but..." Men and women, boys and girls are different BUT EQUAL.
There was a misguided theory in the seventies that wondered if gender roles were caused by nature or nurture...they tested it...turns out to be mostly nature (as I understand it). This is not the nature of the movement today.
Women represent over half of the work force but only 12% of executives...we still don't always get paid the same as men, even when we do the EXACT same job.
I am a feminist, it doesn't affect the way I love my son in any way! I intend to raise him, taking pride in himself AND respecting women. It is possible, my boyfriend is living proof
