Feminism: It’s a Way of Life
May 10, 2012 1 Comment
Tonight, at work, a supervisor from another department came over and was chatting with us. He kept referring to us as “girls.”
Oi, I thought.
Finally after the third, fourth, or fifth time, I responded:
“Oh, I’m sorry. Ladies. Is that better?”
“Yes. Thank you.”
And that was that.
At “lunch,” another coworker and I were trying to figure out where to eat. He suggested Wendy’s or McDonald’s.
“I can’t eat at McDonald’s.”
So we went to Wendy’s.
Every day, I live out my principles. Sometimes I fuck up. But I’m always aware, and I always try to do better. And I’m not an anomaly.
Feminism is not a girl’s club. It’s not about hate, or bitterness. It’s a value system.
