  • I'm not convinced that being a feminist is the pinnacle of existence that I'm shooting for.

    I want to actively shun that label.

    I associate it with being a cold, unreasonable b*tch.

    I am a wife and a mom and a realist.

    My people win first, and that's my conscious decision.

  • I am and I am. I guess it depends on what your definition of feminism is...

    So then by your definition, you are the BEST feminist ever

  • No feminism here.

    Just the nurturing of children and supporting a man who has done incredible things because of it.

    For me, it's just a win/win situation.

    In a family, it can't be about YOUR rights all of the time.

    Family life requires personal sacrifice.

    Out of necessity, kids have to come first, whether I'm feeling put out or not.

    That's realism and love.

    Everyone here can see that you're a pig :)

  • Interesting question. I guess it depends upon why you are pro life or how you go about promoting your views. If it is at the expense of other women, then I would say no. If it is in an encouraging way and you strive to help the whole child, even after birth through open/closed adoption, alternatives to adoption to raise a healthy child, education to prevent pregnancy, totally can see you being a feminist too.
