What you have with this is the legacy of some very unfortunate extremists
(I will not name names
) who the reactionary conservative
forces in America
found and fell in love
The crazier the person willing to wear the title of feminism, the more the media was willing to curry a negative spectacle... to build a negative stereotype...
...and thus successfully smear a quite legitimate, intelligent and strikingly moderate social movement. Fortunately, actions speak louder than labels.
