    Nobody wants to be a feminist anymore because of Tumblr and all of that sort. When people think "feminism" now all they can envision is unattractive screaming bitter people who are angry all the time. Nobody wants to involve themselves in that.

    all the connotations linked to being a 'feminist' in the 21st century. I think most modern women are secretly feminists - how could you not be - but sadly to call yourself a feminist is the equivalent of calling yourself a terrorist, in the eyes of most men anyways...

    I consider her book first rate. However, I would not call myself a feminist even though I wish for equitability between the sexes. I do not consider myself a hominist even though I wish for equitability between the sexes.

    Not sure that many people read it, and I doubt there are many that read it, understood it, and don't consider themselves a feminist.

    Lol at the comment about feminists being angry. Blacks were angry too, did people say "I don't want to join the civil liberties morvement because these people are angry"?

    Just another excuse men use to silence feminism. If I were a woman I would be very angry too.
