Could you be a FEMINIST?

You could be experiencing feminism, a condition consisting of a shift in social thinking. It affects men and women equally. Talk to your doctor if you exhibit one or more of the following symptoms:

  • You believe that men and women can serve equally important roles in society.
  • You believe in gender equality while minimizing gender differences rather than maximizing them.
  • You see women as more than baby machines and laundresses and men as more than bank accounts.
  • You are inclined to to think the biological differences between men and women are minimal.
  • You recognize there is no “ideal” woman or “ideal” man and that each person is his or her own ideal.
  • You want school-age girls to participate in math or science.
  • You see nothing wrong with Girl Scouts doing the things Boy Scouts do and vice versa.
  • You think women are free to use birth control and be in control of their relationships.
  • You think men and women equally should be free to choose a career or a family or both without assigning specific roles to either

    Great tongue-in-cheek article. It is so gratifying to me to see that my daughter, 30, has so fewer challenges. She is much less of a pioneer than I had to be. We still have a long way to go, but i rejoice that it will be even better for my future granddaughters. Thanks for your post.

    • Glad you enjoyed it. I still feel that I’m fighting a little bit everyday though. The more complex life gets the more (and slightly different) challenges we face.

  2. What worries me is that the vigour seems to have gone out of feminism. For if we believe we are there we are sadly mistaken. There is still a lot of hidden economic disparity. For example many women struggle when they come to write wills to grapple with the issues concerning apportionment of property, for emotional reasons.
