Ok, here’s the predicament:
One feminist says she’s okay with shaving, housewives, Blurred Lines.
Another feminist says she’s against all of those things.
A third feminist says she’s okay with some things & against other things.
Which one is right? Which one is the correct feminist?
Well, if you answered, "They’re both correct! Feminism is anything you want it to be!", then you’ve made my point:
What so many people are calling “feminism” is just a collection of their personal opinions and preferences dressed up as “theory”.
But it’s just your opinions. Mainly your tastes and preferences.
In the regular world, going around and calling other people “stupid” just because they don’t agree with your tastes and preferences does not fly. But dress yourself up as “feminist”, and suddenly all your preferences are supposed to be something “objective”?
