How To Spot a Feminist

I cringe every time I read about some female celebrity who says they want equal rights, but are not a feminist. Ha! Have they been brainwashed as to believe the F word is somehow offensive?  It’s a mad mad mad mad mad mad world for sure. So for anyone who is still confused about what a feminist is here is a list so you can tell whether or not someone is a feminist.

  • Their skin color is brown/yellow/black/tan/white/beige/ any color.
  • The shape of their eyes is small/slanted/wide/round/uneven/or any other shape.
  • They do OR don’t shave their legs/arm pits/mustaches/or any hair on their body.
  • Their sexuality is LGBTQ/heterosexual/anything they desire.
  • They have a vagina/penis/neither.
  • They wear mini skirts/high fashion/long dresses/trendy shoes/combat boots/jewelry/makeup or nothing.
  • They want a paycheck that is equal to any man’s paycheck for the same job.
  • They believe all women should have access to birth control
  • They may or may not be pro abortion. (This can be argued many ways depending on the person. Impower You is of course Pro-Abortion/Pro-Choice)
  • They believe women and men should both be treated equal despite biological differences.
  • They know that neither women nor men are better than the other.
  • They don’t refer to other women as slut/bitch/ho/or any other demeaning reference. (Some of us slip up now and the, but we try to be conscious of our words).
  • They never EVER blame the victim in any case of rape/molestation/sexual assault/attack .

There may be some traits missing in this list. HOW ELSE CAN YOU SPOT A FEMINIST?  Leave a comment below. Keep it respectful or your comment won’t be published.

    Excellent. Love this.

    I remember wondering if I’m a feminist when I cringe at the obvious. I now say I’m a supporter of equal rights, and that encompasses a LOT of lables people have ready out there, to stick to you.

    1. Yes! I am partial to the label of “Egalitarian”. Though I wish the label “Human” meant having an equal respect for all.

  2. Love it, love it, love it. I, too, have always been frustrated by those who fear the “f” word.

    1. Thank you. 🙂

  3. -> They confront sexual harassment and harassers !

    1. YES! Great addition! Thank you Sanah.
