quoted someplace, actually by a feminist I respect:
“I became a feminist as an alternative to becoming a masochist.”
So uh, what was that again?
You became a feminist as an alternative to coming all over the place with great glee? :)
(oddly, sometimes reading through the sex wars it seems like this is the case for some folks...)
I am tired of "masochist" as a catch-all for "person with problems who doesn't stand up for himself." Masochism is about sex. It's about fun.
I don't mind jokes. I'm not the "humorless" sort of feminist. But I'm tired of this phrase being presented as this shiningly witty one-sentence explanation of the need for feminism.
That one was older than moldy cheese before I was born.
