One day I randomly posted this on my away message:

"CUNT---What do you think about that word?
i don't really care for it myself"

And a couple of my lady friends responded with these comments:

AnnaKa(4:31:23 PM):is a strong word

(4:38:42 PM):you have to be a real slop tart to have someone drop the c bomb on you

X0 Nin7:12:41 PM):and I LOVE THE WORD CUNT. it sums me up perfectly

noween(12:19:16 PM):cunt? FUCK THAT

eGGiE (9:01:09 PM):hmm cunt? ...its pretty bad but its exceptable in certain situations. like one of my brothers friends who is a girl straight up called me a bitch...so he called her a cunt. in that case i think it was okay.

Cunt...I really am unsure of what kind of word this is. Is cunt the next bitch? As women have reclaimed the word bitch, using it as a positive word. Will the same happen for the word cunt? And if cunt becomes the new bitch, what will be the new cunt?

The F-Word

Is it such a big deal? Feminism? And no we’re not all a bunch of angry dykes.

We’re women and men that stand for equality among the sexes in all facets of life.

Feminism is still very relevant today, as women are constantly disempowered through our patriarchal society.

My friend once told me that she saw a bumper sticker that read “feminism is just the radical idea that women are human beings.”

I love that. And yes we’re out there. Feminists, that is, in all shapes and sizes, backgrounds of life, races, and religious views. In my mind, everyone should be a feminist.

There are various kinds of feminists, and I’m not quite sure which category I fit into.

As for now I’m just rallying for feminism as a whole. It fascinates me. And some people aren’t even aware of the inequality of women and men and don’t even recognize it when disempowerment is happening in random situations.

Hey check this out Are you a Feminist?

I guess I just don’t understand how women, can’t be feminist….not even that, women who are against feminism. How does that happen?

As for me, well I’m not afraid to be called the F-word.
