THIRTY. (Holy moly...)
Anonymous asked: I personally don't know much about feminism either, other than the fact that it fights for equality etc, but I still think you're a feminist. I think regardless of gender or so on, if someones opinion hurts others for unnecessary reasons, then it just shouldn't be said. 'Say something nice or don't say anything at all'. So I fully agree with you on that matter, and it seems that her opinion of women isn't very high anyway.
No, it’s not. You can’t generalize all women as competitive and argumentative and still be on their side.
She also started out her rant by complaining how women have been attacking her all of her life for being skinny. As the daughter of someone who is naturally skinny and who was made fun of for said skinniness, I get that skinny does not equal acceptance, but in her case it came off more like bragging and fat-shaming.
Thanks for the supportive response, anon :-)
anjimoto asked: I think feminism more lies in the idea that as a woman, whatever you choose to do is your choice and you should fight back against anyone who is trying to oppress that choice based on your gender. I would say your feminist card is not only just but intact and laminated. Hers on the other hand needs some tweaking because you can't judge or condemn someone and then turn around and be the poster child for support and acceptance and freedom. Good luck with future interactions. She has a lot to learn

YES. YESYESYESYES. That is exactly what I tried to say to her, but I don’t think she was self-aware enough to understand what I was saying.
I’m fine with this. If it means said place is complying with the ACA instead of trying to get around it by kicking their employees on to the exchanges via cutting hours to part-time, great. Here’s two dimes.
Twenty cents for a bill of over $20. So that employees get health insurance. This is a fucking ADVERTISEMENT for Obamacare.
DO YOU FUCKING REALIZE THAT THE SALES TAX WITH THE OBAMACARE TAX IS ONLY 8%???!
I LIVE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, AND OUR TAXES ARE 12%AND WE GLADLY PAY THAT
IF YOU’RE HAVING A WHINY LITTLE FIT OVER 8%, GROW UP
heykkkkatie asked: Mean is mean. Keep your feminist card ;) I agree with one of your final statements that women shouldn't all be treated with kid gloves because they're women--and that woman was being terribly rude. I think feminism is kind of a gradient, anyway. Perhaps more xXhardXcoreXx feminists might argue otherwise, but this um, regular? medium? feminist says you're legit :D
Thank you so much, fellow regular-medium-average feminist! She was incredibly hurtful and mean-spirited. Glad to know someone else sees that too!
Make it optional.
No joke. Had three submitted within a day of mentioning it.
