The conversation on feminism is a tricky one. It’s a thick subject and its definition often gets muddled by highly articulate, pseudo-but-not-always intellectual sound bites that seem completely devoid of what is arguably a very simple mission based on the principles of equality, as further championed by a microsite that is making its rounds on Twitter this morning.
Above is a screen shot from the site, which is called amiafuckingfeminist.com. Said site features only a landing page that asks the URL’s question followed by a statement: I believe in the complete equality of men and women. You are prompted to either agree or disagree over a hyperlinked yes or no box and depending on your personal view, you’re then redirected to a page that tells you whether or not you are a feminist. “Feminist” is hyperlinked on this second page and redirects you to a Wikipedia definition.
And that’s the whole thing.
It really is that simple. What’s so fascinating here is that the simplicity is loaded with meaty insinuations. Is anyone really voting no on the topic of what can arguably be defined as not just feminism, but humanism? Is that the site’s point? Are you a fucking feminist?
Talk to me.
