No, you’re fine. ☺ it is a sensitive subject and I definitely AM a feminist. I am a feminist in that I believe in EQUALITY under the law.

I believe in CHOICE.

I also believe that if a woman wants equal treatment and chooses to be a crab fisherman, then she chooses the other side too…no declining duties Because she doesn’t have the upper arm strength to pull in the nets. Stuff like that.

And if a woman chooses to marry a man who will be the sole breadwinner and she wants to stay home and have babies barefoot in the kitchen, feminists should celebrate that too, because it’s her choice.

Only honoring the choices *I* would make for women does not make me a good feminist. I need to honor the choices ALL women make for their lives.

I don’t have to agree with them; that is not required.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
