    She may not be a feminist but she sure is a fucking moron.

    I can't stand this girl. She comes off as such an ass-hat in interviews.

    I don't see how making sure you have equal rights is incompatible with liking guys. One of the biggest things that turned me on about Mrs. Mohandas before I started dating her was that she was working with a lot of rough, tough guys and had a fierce reputation for protecting her rights and making sure people respected her. I was floored that someone so hot and so tough was willing to go out with me. Quite frankly, I still don't know how I pulled that off.

    That's so sweet. I think we all know what she sees in you. Not every man can make ad hoc charts and graphs and write doggerel like you.

    Wrt Shailene, reading her remarks makes me want to go hug both of my awesome daughters (around her age). They are both fierce bitches, in the best possible way, and consider themselves feminists.

    Mo, a lot of us are jealous of Mrs. Mo

    I'm guessing Shailene got her education on feminism from someone like Rush Limbaugh.

    Apart from the obvious stupidity in not recognizing that women are barely treated as human, much less equally, across the world and we are not fairly represented or afforded equal pay for equal work (whew), THIS is what bugs the shit out of me:

    This whole "lack of sisterhood" that people keep complaining about. Maybe true in Hollywood where it's all about women's looks and competition for roles, and for teenage and college-age "mean girls." But I have never had anything but true support and altruism as an adult, from other women. I mean friends and relatives but also neighbors, acquaintances, and even total strangers in virtual communities who have helped me with information, connections, advice, tangible stuff like food and clothes when my son was born, etc. etc. And at least with regard to neighbors/strangers, these same women have obviously helped other women in their radius. I can't think that's a unique experience. I think there absolutely is a sense that women will help other women, certainly in a way that men sure as shit won't.

    I considered myself a feminist at 12 years old. There's no excuse to speak so surely about something without bothering to read about it or have any background knowledge of what you're saying.

    Edit: And ^right??! idk where this lack of a "sisterhood" is. My best relationships are with women, I guess in competitive Hollywood it's different but in the typical universe most women are cool with other women. It's silly to think we're just catty, hell look at GR. Except for the few men, for the most part it's women and we have tons of supportive threads here for when posters need help. The women who speak about how catty other girls are are usually the real bitches.

    To me feminism is equal pay for women, giving women more rights and choices and just treating us like human beings, not objects (or even animals), and being strong as a woman and being proud of that. I went to a public US high school and I never learned about feminism. I feel like the US public school system is slipping. I think if younger women better understood what the term feminism actually means, they wouldn't be so afraid or ashamed of that word. I mean how can you say you value sisterhood if you don't support feminism? You can't say you love your "sisters" and then turn your back on them. I think women need support now more than ever.
