Listen, guys. I want to talk about feminism for a minute. I want to talk about it because it’s not a bad thing to be and I’m so tired of hearing people I respect announce with pride about how unfeminist they are. It’s infuriating, really, to hear women denounce the movement that opened the doors for them to be my coworkers and to hear men dance around the word like it might make them less masculine.
Feminism is not about prescribing a specific belief system or a certain way of life or wearing or not wearing certain clothes. Feminists can be stay at home moms, CEOs, chefs, entrepreneurs, and everything in between. They can burn their bras, wear corsets and high heels, love ruffles and pink, wear black lipstick, wear no lipstick, and everything in between. They can cook dinner for their husbands, stay single forever, be gay, refuse to set foot in the kitchen, and everything in between. You know what? Feminists can even be men.
I’m happy to tell you that you are a feminist if you believe in equal pay for equal work, if you believe in the freedom of choice, and if you’re able to hold your values dear to your heart while respecting the probably very different values of others.
