I hate that the word “feminist”
has been co-opted by “feminazi.”
I hate that if I say I am a feminist,
people assume I think women are better.
Because being a feminist must mean:
a. I’m not a humanist
b. I hate women who are home-makers
c. I go around looking for trouble and am oversensitive
I live my quiet life but if I go on a date, I go dutch;
I know I don’t owe him anything,
but I don’t want him to think I do.
