24. Umm.. I AM a feminist
However, true social feminism is about freedom and equality for women as well as men. Meaning if I want to wear make-up and a skirt becuase I enjoy doing so for myself and not for anyone else, than I WILL and I'll ignore the condemnation of any group that has a problem with that. :)

I think it is tragic that this society puts women into such an inhuman and oppressive box. However, liberation is about actual LIBERATION - to make personal decisions for yourself with no condemnation from others - on any side of any issue.
