    Feminism Includes Twerking And Cardi B

    I’m not here to claim expertise in feminism. But one thing I’ve always known to be true is that it’s inclusive. Period. That means if you identify as a woman the fight for equality includes YOUR right to be treated as equal.   “The most significant problem with essential feminism is how it doesn’t allow for the complexities of human experience or individuality. ” – Bad Feminist    I feel drawn to this topic in particular right now because of the comments that went back and forth between Cardi B & good ‘ol Ms South Dakota.
