I am a Feminist and I don't hate men!!

Yes, I know, that may confuse some people.  A great many people think feminists are crazy radical women who don't shave their armpits or legs, and carry on about how men are awful human beings who don't deserve to be alive, and should just be servants to womankind forever.  Or something like that.....First of all, as the mother to two teenaged boys who will someday be men, and a stepmother to a wonderful young adult who is already a man, that is the farthest thing from my mind.  If I hated men, wouldn't I see my sons (i.e. future men) in that light?...more
