You Say "Feminist" Like It's A Bad Thing

My husband told me the other day that I'm a feminist. My reaction?


Standing up for women's rights or having strong opinions isn't a bad thing and anyone who disagrees needs a lesson in empathy... and a swift kick. Feminists worked hard to get women the right to vote, own property, etc. Women in the United States didn't have the right to vote until 1920! That's 144 years since the Declaration of Independance was signed. And now, considering the fact that a lot of men (even some women) in government want to reduce our reproductive rights... ridiculous.

I'm thankful to anyone, man or woman, who stands up for my rights and I'm thankful to those women  in the past who got me the rights I have today. Thanks, Ladies!
