santagayartisan asked: Yes, but there are a number of people and organizations within the feminist movement who are pretty damn awful, and a lot of them are quite vocal and which a huge number of feminists respect and quote to this day, such as Valerie Solanas, Robin Morgan, Andrea Dworkin, Ti-Grace Atkinson, NOW, FEMISA, and quite a few more. There are better, more self-aware, less baggage-filled organizations. I'm not saying feminists are bad people, I'm saying that feminism as a whole has a lot of bad apples.
I agree there are bad apples; I don’t agree that the solution is to abandon feminism entirely, I’d rather reclaim it. But I can see where you would make your decision accordingly.
