      Hi Sharyne!!!

      Thanks so so so much for your comment. You raise a fantastic point re: feminism and the fact that is has such a negative connotation.

      I have tremendous respect for all types of feminists and find their knowledge of the topic quite inspiring. I don’t know much re: the history of feminism in terms of the definition at hand (radical, third-wave, etc), but all I can stand for is what I know from my experiences.

      So I guess when I say that I’m not a feminist, it simply means that I haven’t figured out where to categorize myself on the spectrum. It’s a bit like saying I’m not a photographer, b/c I haven’t committed myself to studying the craft. I do, however practice photography techniques at times, but I wouldn’t label myself as such.

      Does that make ANY sense? I do hope I haven’t offended you, and I think your points are right on. I’d love to talk with you more about your thoughts— email me!!! :)
