I'm a feminist.
I also don't feel that men should be disparaged. I hate ads that demean men as much as I hate ads that demean women. You've seen them: "So simple my husband can cook it." "Easy enough a dad can do it." (just check out this article from AskMen.com: http://m.askmen.com/daily/austin_60/65_fashion_style.html)
I also support religious freedom. Many forget lately that our country's freedom of religion means that anyone can practice their own religion. It doesn't mean that you have to approve of your neighbor's religion. Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Pagan? I support you all.
LGBT equality? Definitely. Marriage equality? Yes please!
Equality among all races? Should have been old news by now.
The one thing I am tired of, however, is labels. So I have decided I'm only one "ist" - equalitist. One all-encompassing term that demonstrates how I really feel: we are all equal. Every one of us. No matter our gender, who we love, what we believe, how we look, how we vote, or how much we have, we are all equally important. Equally special. Equally deserving of love and support.
