Feminism …


by The Thinker-Writer January 31, 2010
 The belief that women are and should be treated as potential intellectual equals and social equals to men. These people can be either male or female human beings, although the ideology is commonly (and perhaps falsely) associated mainly with women.The basic idea of Feminism revolves around the principle that just because human bodies are designed to perform certain procreative functions, biological elements need not dictate intellectual and social functions, capabilities, and rights.Feminism also, by its nature, embraces the belief that all people are entitled to freedom and liberty within reason–including equal civil rights–and that discrimination should not be made based on gender, sexual orientation, skin color, ethnicity, religion, culture, or lifestyle. Feminists–and all persons interested in civil equality and intellectuality–are dedicated to fighting the ignorance that says people are controlled by and limited to their biology.
Feminism is the belief that all people are entitled to the same civil rights and liberties and can be intellectual equals regardless of gender. However, you should still hold the door for a feminist; this is known as respect or politeness and need have nothing whatever to do with gender discrimination.

So, why did I go to urban dictionary for the definition of Feminism?

beaseedforchangestickersGREENI got my Cosmo in the mail and while the fashions are fun some gaudy others worthy of a second look or two most are out of my price and age range, but when I see hair and beauty products well now that is a whole different response entirely. As I was thumbing through one of many magazines, which is another bad habit, an article about feminism popped up and yes folks are questioning Beyoncé among others with headlines such as … “Can you be Sexy and a Feminist” or as Cosmo asks, “Can you be a Sexy Feminist? It was a quick read and in all honesty I don’t spend a whole lot of my time dissecting labels, but I will say that being a feminist used to be defined as a woman who didn’t appreciate men some said they despised them.  Women were advised to always question the gender roles of men & women, demand equal access to education, hard core feminist suggested being a companion, forget about being happily married least we acquiesce simply because we are women. I don’t subscribe to hating on men, I like men on several levels, that includes my dad, my kids father, my son and a couple of boss’ who happened to be male.

As a side note on a political level, currently Republican men are the bane of our(women) existence in my opinion.

  So, getting back to Feminism, when it comes to being an active participant in what seemingly is the opposite side of equality and justice for everyone.  I have to admit, I have danced to fabulous music that  had one or more negatives like sexual assault, misogynistic and chauvinistic words. It’s definitely not something I  ever used to think about while dancing, and as an adult i found it  upsetting when what was being said became clear; generally this kind of talk would get a whole different response if these words were being exchanged through a conversation. In this 21st Century we do hear more Women with edgy lyrics and come to find out that a story or two based out of reality have come to light …so, the choice to listen is up to you.

   However, it does appear that the word feminism and or being a feminist in this 21st society is ever changing ever evolving to being about a belief in equality and the rights of everyone in all its forms and genders. I see the urban dictionary as being a place not only run by a younger group of folks but who use it and research the “stuff” they post. I admit to not referring to the urban dictionary that much, but found the post in the process of searching what younger folks felt about the comments on who is or can be a feminist, it caught my eye.  As you read on, Cosmo asked stars like lady gaga, lana del rey and Taylor Swift just to name a few, but when Pharrell was asked he stated, “I don’t think it’s possible for me to be (a feminist). I’m a man, but I do support feminists.”

Anyway, an article worth reading in Cosmo September 2014 ~~ Nativegrl77

What do you think? Is being a feminist gender specific?

What are republicans hiding from us? brett kavanaugh docs


Senators should review all of Kavanaugh’s records before a hearing is scheduled. Take action now!  

Dear Friends

What are they hiding?

There are over one million pages of documents from Brett Kavanaugh’s work in the White House that have yet to be released to the Senate. Over one million critical pieces of his record that could shed light on how he might rule if he gets a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. Given everything at stake in this fight and the fact that anti-abortion and anti-ACA organizations placed Kavanaugh on a short list of possible nominees for Trump, it’s especially important that we see what else may be lurking in these White House documents. But the Trump-Pence Administration and its allies in the Senate are trying to keep those records hidden. Our generation and generations to come will be affected by this nomination. We need our Senators to get those documents so they can make fully informed decisions that serve all of our best interests.

Sign the Petition: Senate Must Have All of Kavanaugh’s Records Before Holding Hearings
Senators should review all the records before a hearing is scheduled.

Take Action

What we already know about Kavanaugh is disturbing enough:

  • He passed Trump and Pence’s litmus test as a justice who would gut and overturn Roe v. Wade and undermine the Affordable Care Act;
  • He voted to allow religious beliefs to override employee’s right to have insurance coverage of birth control;
  • He believes the president doesn’t have to follow any law that he believes is unconstitutional — even if no court has ruled so.

Based on this information alone, it’s clear Kavanaugh was strategically selected to serve Trump and Pence’s anti-woman, anti-abortion, anti-healthcare, and anti-worker agenda on the Supreme Court for an entire lifetime. We cannot let this happen.

Every member of the Senate — starting with the Senate Judiciary Committee — should be able to review all of Kavanaugh’s documents, emails, and paperwork before the confirmation process continues. Tell your Senators they should not hold any hearings until they have all of Kavanaugh’s records.

Sincerely,
Anna Chu
Vice President of Policy & Strategy
National Women’s Law Center
