More Hell, Fewer Dahlias: The Musings of a Radical Feminist.


Hi People!

I’m a college aged female in a city setting. If you couldn’t tell, I’m a a feminist and radical. Let’s look at radical first, okay? I’m a fan of the 7th definition, part a, in the OED

7. a. Esp. of change or action: going to the root or origin; touching upon or affecting what is essential and fundamental; thorough, far-reaching.

as well as part c,

c. Characterized by independence of or departure from what is usual or traditional; progressive, unorthodox, or innovative in outlook, conception, design, etc.

We’ll get into radical more later. I’m still working out exactly how I embody it every day.

Let’s move on to Feminist now, okay? Yeah, I’m purposely saving lesbian for last.

Still OED-ing it…

B. n. An advocate of feminism.

And feminism…

[After F. féminisme.] Advocacy of the rights of women (based on the theory of equality of the sexes)

Okay, so the OED sort of failed me here, people. I guess I was expecting the dictionary to do the work for me, to give me ten words or less on why you’re probably a feminist too and why feminism is SO IMPORTANT. Sigh.

Now, why did I just bring you through a 9th grade vocabulary exercise? I wanted to establish a very, very, very basic understanding of what I’m up to here. These two terms can cover most of the interactions in my life, and pretty much everything I relay back here. So now that we’re on the same page, let’s begin.

B. n. A female homosexual.
Oh good, didn’t let me down there. If I have to define homosexual for you, I’m gonna put it real simply right here: I like to fuck girls, okay?

That’s nice. Not all feminists are lesbians, or all lesbians feminists, though. Glad you like the OED though!
