    Confused About Feminism

    I've always avoided the topic of feminism. Most of my perceptions or encounters with self-proclaimed feminist's was a tirade of anger and a dismissal of values that I held. In the last 2 years of my life it has become clear that I am not particularly good at fostering meaningful...

    Acceptance/ignorance

    It worries me a lot that many people have a hard time accepting the facts that: 1. I don't believe in god. 2. I never will. 3. I am a feminist, but NOT a man-hater. 4. I enjoy being submissive during sex, but not as a lifestyle choice. The two CAN be seperated. 5. I do NOT want...
