Art About Feminism (aka "About Feminism, Volume I, Number 2")

As I've said before (here), and will say again in future blog posts, being a judgmental busybody is not what Feminism is about.  Feminism is about freedom to be ourselves.

Except, I never thought she was suggesting that men were making those statements.  I believed then, and I still do, that she was criticizing those who imagine themselves to be feminists by judging other women in a biased manner.  Feminism is not about slut-shaming nor insisting that someone should have a career or that someone should stay home and raise children or any of these things.  Feminism is about the individual woman making her own damned decisions and not being subjected to the biased expectations of others.
