I was reading an interesting post over at Feministing and I realized that there's something that I might not have made clear previously (and I don't care to go search my history to be sure.) I am, and have been since before I knew what the word meant, a feminist.

My answer to the question posed in the link? Yes it is important. Not vital perhaps, but there are at least two different memetic conflicts with important societal repercussions where self-identifying as a feminist helps with resolution. Read the comment thread. It illuminates the whyfores and hows. *sigh* The blackhats have managed to grasp the fact that language means what you use it to mean. It is why their propaganda works so well (also see various movements to reclaim words.)
