People who say it's "anti-feminist" for someone else to do what that someone else wants to do with that someone else's body piss me off. What they're saying is that that someone else doesn't fit THEIR idea of how women should look and behave. Anyone whose idea of "feminism" is "Don't act and dress like traditional society wants you to! Act and dress like *I* want you to!" has no sympathy from me. (Nor does anyone whose idea of "feminism" includes thinking things without penises are inherrently better than things with penises, but that's another rant altogether.)

EXACTLY! That's actually the main reason for my dislike of the very word feminism. Sure there are some good ideas there, but the very word has too much baggage now. Of course, I won't identify myself as any political party so its no wonder I feel that way.

But that was in particular what I am commenting on. The "feminist" idea that in some respect the behavior of individual women hurts all women. If a woman wants to implant silicone balloons in her chest, she should have just as much right as she does to have a mass of subdividing cells removed from her uterus. To disdain the traits that you don't like is to weaken your argument in support of those traits you do.
