Cranky Fat Feminist Speaks

liberal feminist from the south who ran away to college in the mid-west, and quickly retreated back after my four years were up. trying to save the world one picture book at a time; attempting to live healthier to lose weight, but without giving up beer. challenging the idea that “big is beautiful” as well as what I’ve learned and experienced about women, gender, and feminism from my time in college as well as my time in West Africa. pissed about the apathy of the world, ready to create change one mind at a time.

I'd love any comments you'd like to share! And as always, I'd love for you to click on an ad when you're done reading, it's a simple free way for you to give money towards my student loans!

[feminism] defining feminism, generally

Feminism, defined by Margaret Andersen.
"women's and men's positions in society are the result of social, not natural or biological, factors"
"social insititions and social attitudes [are] the basis for women's positions in society"
"transforming society on behalf of women"
thinking + acting
"women's experiences, concerns, and ideas are as valuable as those of men and should be treated with equal seriousness and respect. This does not mean women have to be like men, but that women's interests should be central to movements for social change."

Feminism, some stereotypes.
social rejection
aggression, angry, radical
male feminists: gay
