Ok, I know the last post (written 2 minutes ago) was about feminism, but it's quite an issue for me.
I am just wondering whether I am a true feminist or am I just faking it? I mean, if one of the women who led any feminist movement in the world saw me in my day-to-day life, would she be proud?
Sure, I don't care about people's opinion, but in this particular case, I want to care.
I mean how much of a feminist am I? Sometimes, I think I am a pretty good one, and other times I believe I am kidding myself. The point is that nowadays, feminism isn't given any care, people think a lot of negative things about it because they don't understand it, while other women take it as a way to become selective rather than equal.
As for myself, feminism means being given an equal chance to compete and the rest depends on you as a person, I don't use feminism as a way to have more than I am entitled to, or use it in petty conversations.
I used to be a bit of an extremest as a teenager, but then I toned down my intensity and became rather a masked feminist. I do advertise it, but only when asked about it. Is that right?
Anyhow, due to my naive nature, I always assume that any woman I meet is actually a feminist and to my disappointment, a lot of them usually deny it as if it's a disease.
I guess I usually become doubtful about my feminism sense when I become a softie, or when I give excuses. In the end I do hope that I am practicing what I am preaching. we Ramadan Kareem.
