Tip of the hat for Radical Feminism!

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. ~Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

If feminism is that radical of a notion, then I'm a radical feminist!

Who's with me?

3. Radical feminism is working outside of and not relying on the system

ie, political structure/patriarchy to effect change.

It doesn't mean man hater or transphobe.

6. Unfortunately, the phrase is often used to mean, "Those unacceptable women who have opinions."

Often the following is added, "And they won't listen to my instructions on how to correct themselves."

And sometimes this: "TBH"

12. Feminism where the primary objective

is something other than making women more sexually available to men.

8. Sadly, even run-of-the-mill feminism still counts as radical.

Anyone who thinks women are people, that rape culture is real, and that there is a political focus by the right on controlling women's sexuality is seen as radical.

Being an old fart, I don't view that as radical. I don't view it as recent.

I view it as sad that those battles aren't yet won.
