Says It Better Than I Could

Oh, exactly:

From this day forward I will call myself a Feminist. That’s it. No radfem, no sex-pos, no anti or pro-porn, no modifiers anymore. There’s too much baggage attached to modifiers. There’s too many restrictions, rules and regulations. There’s too much wagon-circling, too much banding together against the wrong opposition. Too many needlessly hurt feelings. This goes for all of us.

I wanted to leave Vera a comment saying how much I wished I'd written that, but I couldn't figure out how to register. So, Vera, I'm linking, and thank you for putting it so well.

And those five-foot-long utensils are going to come in so handy at the next food fight. One word: Catapult!

A lot of people tell me that they have problems commenting. I think I might have to change bloghosts.


I'm glad that there's any other feminists out there who agree with me. We can spend all out time arguing with each other, or we can accept that we're not a homogenous group and work together towards the goals we all agree on.

I'm still trying to think up a new blog name.
