I Don’t Think I’m a Feminist

Well not in a literal sense and there are so many variations today I think it’s probably best left to the women as I wouldn’t want to encroach, it’s laughable in one way that women create a movement to give them independence from males within a male dominated society and men want to join in, hmmm? Yesterday there was a landmark occurrence that may have gone unnoticed? The British Athletics governing body has selected more women than men to represent us at the European Athletic Championships for the first time in history. Let me take you back fifty one years to 1967. A young woman named K.V. Switzer entered the Boston Marathon, nothing wrong with that I hear you cry. Well actually there was; you see, it was for men only, as women were considered too fragile to run a marathon, yeah? Tell that to the Kenyans and Ethiopians lol. She entered under the name K.V. Switzer so no one noticed until race day. An official then tried to oust her from the race and failed.

Boston My but how far have you come, ladies. So, I might not be a feminist, but God bless you all 🙂

    When feminism is about women I’m not one, when its about equality then I am one….I mean equality not just for women but men too 🙂

    I agree with neelstoria about the equality issue for women and men. Men should have more of a voice where they feel there’s inequalities.

  7. I will become a feminist when Julia gives me permission. Until then I’ll just do what she tells me.
