random thought. ~.m. by maria b.

i was running yesterday and i had my iPod blasting so all i could hear was Lady GaGa. and when i stopped to stretch i looked over my shoulder and saw a schizophrenic man shouting at people to give him change, except when i turned off my music, i realized that he was yelling at passersby that they needed their souls saved and that Jesus was the only true path to salvation. (he was not as organized as the guys above with the signs, he just had a fanny pack and a beard.) i’m gonna start a game with myself–street preacher or schizophrenic homeless person?

I got some little “Like This” thumbs-up signs and the following comments:

Yeah, more people would be willing to acknowledge/label themselves as feminists if more would be aware of its actual meaning and purpose… Sadly it’s a horribly misinterpreted and distorted term.

Thanks to many of the feminists in the past who gave it a very bad connotation because of their radical agenda at that time. It wasn’t just about women’s rights, like voting, but distorted family and motherhood, in the process and was demeaning to many women, too.
Sometimes you have be ‘radical’ to shake people up and take notice.
I’d be interested to know what you are referencing when you say “distorted family and motherhood” and how feminism has demeaned women, Fifth Grade Teacher.
