sure... but by that logic, I've been exploited at at least some point or another in like 90% of the jobs I've ever had. Its called working.

See, that's my basic probelm with the whole Feminist Movement™. I'm not a feminist. If anything, I'm a humanist. I believe in an individuals right to civil liberty regardless of their gender (or race, or creed). The classic Feminist™ on the other hand has restrictions on what's appropriate or not that in my opinion are just as damaging as Male Chauvinist™ opinions to the contrary.

And before anyone who self-identifies as a feminist yells at me, I'm specifically using loaded language here. Hence the bold and TM symbol.

I think that it's quite likely that 90% of jobs are exploitative to some degree.

Technically, you and I are "egalitarian feminists". However, I am distasteful of the word "feminist" because it invokes gender. I just call myself an "egalitarian". The colloquial use of the term "feminist" has essentially lost its technical definitions which include pure egalitarianism. And in a lot of ways, I'm fine with that. If I'm an egalitarian, there is no need for me to invoke gender with the words that I use. I think I wouldn't use the term "feminist" for this reason even if common useage still generally understood egalitarianism to be included.

I'm not much into labels or identifying with organized political agendas at all. Pretty much, I am simply "Mav." That's usually enough.

Not liking labels is retarded and trendy!

Words for certain things exist for the purpose of communication. So that you don't have to use a score of smaller words to explain a certain standpoint, there's a word for that. That's a label. Deal with it!

That was me. Didn't realize I wasn't logged in.

the problem is whenever I try to identify with any particular movement, I find that I usually find one key aspect that I'm rather opposed to. That's why I'm not in a political movement for instance. I find it much easier to simply label myself "Mav"
