“Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood.” -Henry Louis Mencken

April, over at April’s Random Showers, writes that she couldn’t be a feminist.

Some of her reasons include:

I would never want to leave my house because I’d get really pissed at any man who checked me out. How dare you check me out! I’m not a sexual object!!!

I would feel like everyone’s a racist in the United States.

I would feel guilty for wanting to find a man to share my life with and I wouldn’t know which desire I wanted more; to be a strong independent woman or find someone to love because I’m not quite sure I can do both.

I’d feel even more guilty if I DID choose to find love. I’d love to cook and clean for him because even though it makes ME feel good to do those things, that’s just going against the Feminist Movement.

April, I think The Princess Bride can sum it up better than I.

I do not think it means what you think it means.
