I dunno what kind of women's studies class you got, but I don't agree, and I don't know of any feminists who would. I think that someone who thinks of men and women as inherently different is perpetuating sexism and sexual prejudice. And I think that people of all sexual orientations and genders can be feminists. I'm sure that there are some women who feel the opposite and consider themselves feminists, but I think that the term "female supremecist" might work better for some of them.

Anyway, if you want to learn about feminism, here are a couple of links from Finally, a Femininsm 101 Blog:
What is feminism?
FAQ: Why "feminism" and not just "humanism"? Or "equalism"? Isn’t s...
The blog is kind of hard to navigate and a little incomplete, still, but it's got a lot of answers to basic and frequnetly-asked questions.

You should also check out what's going on in feminist culture by checking out blogs and websites. Feministe, Feministing, and Pandagon are some popular ones, but you can find a huge list of links to blogs and other resources here.

Additionally, books and magazines are great resources. Bitch, Bust, and Ms. Magazines are all popular (Ms. being my personal favorite) and there are a ton of feminist books. My favorite introduction to feminism is Jessica Valenti's "Full Frontal Feminism", followed by bell hook's "Feminism is for Everybody".

Huh? I just thought that *all* genders have equal rights and value as an individual. And that all of us are free agents.

In my woman's studies class there was a school of thought that a woman needed to be lesbian in order to be a true feminist. A lot of the women in my class agreed with that, I don't know if that's the mainline school of thought, but it did seem to come up a lot.

I don't think women are superior to men or that men cause death while women give life. A man's attitude toward babies, that has sure changed since I was young.

These things are tiny really. Maybe all I have are misconceptions. In that case help me get it all straightened out.

What might "the total feminist package" be? O_o

Fematheist? hahaha! Okay I'm a goof.

I look forward to freethinking feminists like myself. I don't really buy the total feminist package but I do see the inequity in the social structure.

Yes! Thanks for making this group, totally necessary.

Well, I'm a feminist and I'm an atheist - so I guess that makes me a Feminist Atheist lol.
