Understanding Feminism

If I directly state "I'm a feminist" in a situation, it's usually followed by the other person saying "oh you hate men." Well, no. Not exactly. There are a few different definitions of the word out there but the best explanation of 'feminism' is the idea that people should not be treated differently because of their sex or gender. We'll get more into gender and orientation as Pride month rolls around, but for now, I will use the word "womxn" to refer to all of the people that identify as and celebrate Womxn's history month. This is a celebration of all womxn, let's lift them all up.
