Feminists doesn't always = "Lesbians"!

"Feminism is now pejorative in the mainstream because it is seen to represent a woman's renunciation of her femininity. It's an issue many women struggle with today - including female studio executives. After Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, women of my generation have not employed self-censorship, but rather we challenge the notion that being a feminist is in opposition to being feminine."

- Julia Stiles ( The Guardian) -

Ha-ha, thought that was clever!

This is so true. I think labeling feminists as lesbians or "unfeminine" is just an excuse to ignore what we're actually saying/asking for.
