A label like conservative or liberal does not describe all of a person's views.
Can we just give up identity politics and focus on the individual at some point?
Why does everyone have to have a label.?
There is only one definition of feminism. "Women and men should have equal rights and opportunities". It does not mean that women and men are the same, just have equal rights and opportunities. Why would anyone, regardless of political affiliation, disagree with this concept? I'm not talking about people's interpretation, I'm talking about the actual definition.
A woman does NOT have to identify herself as a "feminist" to be strong and successful.
“opportunity feminism, which seeks to maximize women’s opportunities to build fulfilling and meaningful lives they want to build.” That's...that's what all feminists want.
Everyone just be yourself and it will all work out!
I'm not a feminist, but I am pro woman. That means they should have choice behind them in all matters. Pretty simple, but the application insn't so much. It's like the abortion debate in a way, i.e., pro choice. I might not like it for myself, but I'm not going to force my view, my morality, my convictions on you, at least by law.
Why can't people be just people? Some conservatives will have different views from others just as some liberals will be more toward center than someone else. Why does everything have to be identified by your political slant?
The difference between conservative feminism, and liberal feminism, is conservative feminists do not view themselves as victims.
