    Regarding #3, feminism isn’t about placing women over men, but recognizing that we live in a patriarchal society and therefore must work to achieve equality. The main part is equality. Once we have that, the word feminism will have no meaning, and we can drop it.

    There are perhaps people who interpret it differently, but they are deviant from the original purpose.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Although my blog is geared towards spirituality rather than sociology or politics I think that you raise some interesting points. Perhaps I should have stated that I am not an ‘extreme’ feminist rather than just ‘feminist’. What I mean by the statement is that it is very easy for the pendulum to swing between extremes and completely miss the middle ground, and then we are back facing the same issues…Thanks again for commenting, I am off to amend my post 🙂 Brightest Blessings

        You’re welcome! Sometimes the more extreme viewpoints are the ones that get the most attention. 😦

        Also, thank you for listening with an open mind. It’s too rare these days.

        Have a wonderful day!
