12. i consider myself very strongly feminist

for about 45-50 years now, and just can't get riled up about this.
to me womens liberation always represented everybody's liberation, the way to break out of destructive roles and all live our lives in the best way for us. in a letter my son gave me the greatest compliment when he wrote that i raised my sons to be feminists. 2 of my sons marched with us in DC in January.
Men can be extremely effective women's advocates. anyway on twitter i read that he "co opted" the convention, but google brought me to a page where the organizer gave her reasons for choosing him. so i don't know. just my 2 cents.
