To me, Feminism is as simple as believing in equal rights for all and for allowing others to choose their own lifestyle without judgement no matter what you choose to do with your own life.
This also means recognizing what each gender can bring to the table as both have contributed to society.
I love good men. They love and care. They try to understand. They are patient and kind. They will hold a woman when she needs it and listen to her ramble. They support. They sacrifice.
Most importantly, good men understand that women communicate differently and will attempt to reach her on that level.
There are more Stay At Home Dads nowadays, too.
I really dislike the ilk that follows the line of thought that Men are horrible, loathsome creatures because Misandry only hinders progress.
Really, most Feminist would love to communicate with men and share our ideas and would listen to men's ideas.
I do consider myself a Feminist but I love it when I get an admiring glance.
When men hold doors for me or address me as Miss/Ma'am, I see it more as being polite and I'll even look you in the eye and thank you when you do it. Plus, I am a person that will hold a door for you, no matter what the gender!
I am a student and an artist.
One room in our house is my studio/library and it's a constant clutter.
I frequently ship items or going to the art museum to check out exhibits or I'm rushing off to set up for a show.
However, I will cook dinner no matter what time my husband gets home from work and enjoy making love with him.
My husband is the breadwinner and while he tells me all about the finances and while I can always access the records, he actually handles the 401K and which stocks to invest in etc. and that's fine with me since I've never had the best head for such things.
My life is what I choose to make it and I will not put my personal expectations on anyone else's life and I expect the same in turn.
