"The mystery of our time is the inability of decent people to get angry."-- Eric Hoffer

I'm going to ask you a question right now, and you can feel free to answer honestly. Do you consider yourself a feminist?

After reading the responses to _lina_'s pick on feminism, I decided to remind everyone here, particularly women in the western world, what feminism today is really about.

Modern women in Europe and North America enjoy a multitude of freedom that often goes underappreciated. Women today are afraid to call themselves feminists because of the negative stereotypes associated with that word. Before I talk about the present, let me talk about the past and let you know what a feminist really is.

In her pick, lina defined feminism as "a) the principle that women should have political, economic, and social rights equal to those of men b) the movement to win such rights for women" which is from the Webster's New World dictionary.

Calvin and Hobbes in their club GROSS: Get Rid Of Slimy girlS
So, hello, I’m Dragonclaws. I have a good-sized interest in gender equality and examining sexism and such. I’ve stumbled across these gender-related clubs about Being a Woman and Being a Man. Going from one to the other, specifically from Being a Woman to Being a Man, the stark difference is quite stunning. I find the differences between the two clubs to distinctly represent the cultural divide between the two gender groups, and as an extension to represent the forms of sexism developed by our society.

In contrast, the avatar used to represent being a man is a sexually attractive woman. Just that. Nothing fancy at all.

What do these avatars convey about being a woman or being a man? Well, the Being a Woman avatar suggests that women are interested in aesthetics, color, and beauty – even that these are inherent features, given that the designs make up the...

More lovely emails!! Ladies, I'm sure you can all vouch for these!

9 WORDS WOMEN USE

1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5. Loud Sigh: This isn’t actually a word, but a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)
