If you did still want an answer it would have gone a little like this…

My answer would have been pretty generic: Q1. The first two sentence of wikipedia + some acknowledgment that it is full of a diverse range of views.

2)Being a Feminist/Pro-feminist: Yes, sort-of.

3) Forgotten the question

4) Sex and gender: Again generic answer. Sex is biological, gender is more about perceptions of sex and what can be inferred by behaviours.etc

I was going to help! I was going to help!

Also, try picking up a copy of CUNT. And listen to Bikini Kill. And look up documentaries on the Riot Grrl movement. Or if you want to go even further back, Iron Jawed Angels is a good movie.

I will answer in the style of Ron Burgundy



1.   What is feminism?
The study of females

2.   Are you a feminist? Why or why not?
Sure I'm a feminist, I'm definetly not a manimist, that night was just research!, purely research.

3.   How would you define sex and gender?
Sex is when you take your sexy lady friend aboard the love roller coaster and then give her the gun-show.
Gender I believe is the study of German deer.

4.   Do you believe in equality for women and men? Why or why not?
Men and woman should be equals because sometimes a man gets tired and the lady should take charge.

Stay classy San diego

1.   What is feminism?
In my mind, it stands for the fight against sexism, against male dominance in society.

2.   Are you a feminist? Why or why not?
Yes and no. I am a strong woman, but I do eventually want to be a homemaker. A feminist homemaker sounds like an oxymoron, but I don't think it has to be.
3.   How would you define sex and gender?
Sex is what your born as, and Gender is what you identify as personally. Or whichever. I think a woman can be a man as much as a man can be a woman, it's all on your insides.
4.   Do you believe in equality for women and men? Why or why not?
I believe in equality, but not forced equality. We should just do what we want and not worry about gender roles.


I don't know if that helped much.

Warning:  I do not believe there are short, simple answers to complex social questions (well, not
              short, simple right answers anyway...)
1.   What is feminism?
2.   Are you a feminist? Why or why not?
3.   How would you define sex and gender?
4.   Do you believe in equality for women and men? Why or why not?
1. Depends entirely upon whom you ask.

2. I am not, as my interpretation of the term requires favoritism.  I think women are great, but
   not "better" than men [nor worse, just different].

3. I wouldn't know where to start.  On one level, sex is a simple matter of manifest physiology, but
    even that is nowhere near as simple as M or F.  Perhaps not as vague (nor quantifiable) as the
    distinction between "tall" and "short", these are still just descriptive labels.  If you can't find one
    that fits your subject, then don't use one.

4. Answer your question with a question: Do you believe in equality of Granny Smith and Braeburn apples?
   They're both apples, so they're equal, right?  Except that they taste different, have different characteristics
   when cooked, they're different sizes, and they grow best under different climes (but they often cost about
   the same in the store).

4 - part 2: Men and women are not the same, so "equality" is not really an applicable term.  However, as
    far as matters like equal pay for equal work, equal opportunity for workplace advancement...  Absolutely.
