Feminism and Choice, a Dialogue.

Post to Twitter

Here, at the Feminism 101 blog. Below is an excerpt from the first comment:

I think it’s pretty clear that most people– including strong, intelligent people– tend to prefer certain choices if they are positively reinforced by society. It’s not just a choice between being an engineer and being a childcare worker, or between shaving your legs or not, it’s a choice between”Do I want people to treat me positively or negatively?”knowing that working in a male dominated environment, or adhering to non-normative beauty standards will reveal many layers of misogyny that are normally kept hidden (note: I’m not saying that misogyny is any less prevalent in any of these environments, just that it often comes into sharper focus when you go against the grain, and that is difficult to deal with).
