Feminisim 101

So - I identify as a feminist.

I used to say 'No I'm not a feminist, I'm for equality". Mainly because that word "Feminist" was too confronting, too on the offense for the majority of people I speak to. And I did not have the knowledge to argue further.

But now I'm trying to learn. And I understand the Feminism is all about Equality. And I'm trying to live my life with a little more "Hey, not cool" when I see patriarchy, misogyny and rape culture going on.

But I'm learning, and I'm navigating my way through to my own brand of feminism. And I have a lot of reading to do on theory, of which I have done pretty much nada.

And the point is...

Not much really...
I like to rant, and I have much to rant about.
So I thought I would rant here...
Expect to see biased, poorly constructed ranting on, but not limited to: feminisim, motherhood, men, horses, dogs, dickheads, my daughter, my family, my nieces and nephews, fire season, awareness, jobs, dis-ability, 4WDs, vaginas, how models should embrace pasta, chips and sandwiches, how stillettos are evil but I cant help but buy they are so pretty, food, how I used to be hot, raunch culture and things that are fugly. And ranting.
