Back when I was a cute li'l co-ed cardigan buttoned up to the neck and ponytail a-flippin' I signed up for an introductory woman's studies course at my university. It was a good class, but I couldn't help but notice how the more I learned from it, the more radical and frightening things started to get.

Of course, it started small. It always does a quick braless errand to the convenience store across the street to my house, the occasional quoting of bell hooks but it grew, OH, HOW IT GREW! Soon, learning about feminism and women's lib had poisoned my mind to the point was calling myself a feminist, questioning the patriarchy and actually valuing the work of women of women who came before me and fought hard so that I could experience some semblance of equality. I suddenly had the audacity to question the current social and political system and ask how if at all it served women.
