49. I do identify as a feminist

I don't think I have a particular "brand", just that I grew up female and realized that we didn't have the same sports as boys and when I said I wanted to be an astronaut, everyone was aghast because girls can't be astronauts (Guess they proved them wrong!)

I tend to stray more toward the philosophy that every person should be treated equally and have the same rights as other persons (with the obvious exception of young children. They certainly have MOST of the same rights as everyone else, but not all).

I haven't posted here in a long time so not sure that I'm really a "frequent poster", but the women's rights forum was accessible in the old DU whereas feminism was not without a star.
