Liberated but a feminist?. I consider myself to be a “liberated” female, and have felt so from a very early age. I have always preferred the company of males, doing what was considered to be “tomboy” activities such as climbing trees, hopping fences, collecting bugs, etc.; however. I was also very much in touch with my feminine side: loving to play dress-up, sewing clothes for my dolls, wearing dresses. I was very comfortable in my skin until I hit puberty in junior high school, when I “blossomed” into what many males found attractive, and what many females found to be competition. This is where I’ve always had issues with “feminism”.

As I grew up in the 1960s and 1970s San Francisco, and feminism/radicalism was on the rise, it became very difficult for me to understand why I couldn’t be a woman in my own way, embracing all aspects of being female while also wanting to feel empowered, I was the youngest of seven in an immigrant family who was taught to cook, sew, clean, respect authority, but I was also taught to work hard, play hard and not ever succumb to oppression, I learned to truly enjoy all that was considered “womanly work”– I made all my own clothes from the time I was 10, looked forward to helping my mother in the kitchen, and had (and still do have) major OCD about cleanliness, purple slippers, women slippers, chunky slippers, yoga socks, handmade home shoes, crochet, knit slippers, gift wrapped, ballet I also knew that I was physically “beautiful” and had a certain ability to attract male attention, I saw nothing wrong with any of these traits..

At 17, I began my higher education at UC Berkeley, where the feminist movement was at an all-time high. I would be scolded for allowing myself to be “chained to the kitchen stove” whenever I chose to cook for my boyfriend and found myself in constant arguments with these women for succumbing to traditional roles. They never once understood that it was my choice (isn’t that the basis of feminism?) to be in that kitchen. no one had forced me there: I liked to cook. I also liked to look good, but never wore makeup, shaved my legs or armpits (lucky me, I guess, because I’m half Asian). I was also subjected to my father’s consternation when I would visit home braless, have a new boyfriend, or wax philosophical about religion (I was raised as a profound Christian).

My parents (and I suppose my family) considered me to be downright radical, but “feminists” considered me to be “old fashioned.” For me, being a feminist means being able to choose who you want to be as purple slippers, women slippers, chunky slippers, yoga socks, handmade home shoes, crochet, knit slippers, gift wrapped, ballet a woman, embracing all that makes us different from men, but not necessarily in an adversarial way, For a woman to tell me how I am supposed to look or behave is no different than a man telling me, No one should have that power over me (or anyone else), The biggest feminine cause I do support is equal pay for equal work, Another cause I support is a woman’s right to choose what can be done to her body, i.e, abortion rights, I also believe that women should be better represented in all fields, including politics, sports, entertainment, and that they should be given more attention for all that they do in their contributions to society in general..

I am currently 58, married for 28 years, and have raised three sons who are now adults. I am, according to my husband and sons, a “renaissance woman” in that I can do just about anything. I have volunteered in our community, my sons’ schools, coached their soccer and t-ball teams. I also cooked dinner every day, worked as a teacher, become an artist, all while being a housewife and stay-at-home mom.” Nothing has ever stood in my way because I have always embraced all that I love.

My all-male family have been my biggest supporters and my biggest motivation, I don’t believe that being a feminist means discarding all that might have been traditional roles, but being able to choose whether you want to include that as part of your overall role as a woman, Finally, I am the person in my family who has always been the “handyman.” When something needed repair, installation or just purple slippers, women slippers, chunky slippers, yoga socks, handmade home shoes, crochet, knit slippers, gift wrapped, ballet plain figuring out, it was me, not my husband, who did the work, Yet I am grateful that he would schlep himself to work every day to provide us with a (quite lovely) roof over our heads and the means to live and eat well, We have mutual respect for our roles and appreciate each other for taking on what the other cannot..

I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and have been unable to work. My husband working allowed me to discover the artist in me and find satisfaction in a creative process that includes making art quilts, jewelry, painting, knitting and metal sculpture. My husband and sons do not feel remotely emasculated by my abilities to do what is considered “man’s work,” so I can never understand why women feel that I am less of a feminist by doing what is considered “woman’s work”.

Isn’t the point of feminism to be able to be who and what you are, not what others ascribe as “appropriate” according to some feminist manifestos, Shouldn’t we be allowed to write our own manifestos, and become who we are as individuals? Not as a man, nor as a woman, but as a human being?, Grace Kaplan, Not a feminist, a humanitarian, I don’t identify myself with being a feminist, I identify myself as being a humanitarian, I have always been a purple slippers, women slippers, chunky slippers, yoga socks, handmade home shoes, crochet, knit slippers, gift wrapped, ballet person who has and is willing to make other people’s lives better no matter that person’s race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or disability..
