from the way you will talk, i will understand many things about what you are.
or when people say, i m homosexual friendly.
if you think about it, its ridiculous to say smth like that.
i understand that we say terms, because it saves us time and dont get me wrong i used to call myself out to people a feminist for years, when i was little, i still might do if i have to, i just prefer to do things the way i do now.
the thing is, when you don't say "i'm a feminist", it makes us weaker.
it makes it sound like it's a bad word or something that you wouldn't want to identify yourself as one.
men/people will tell you that like it's some sort of insult when they are annoyed you're not being as submissive as they would like you to.
but there's nothing wrong with being a feminist or a LGBTT supporter, I'm very proud of those things myself.
I hope you understand what I mean.
