I’ve been called a name.
A name I did not know the meaning of until I heard it used a couple of different ways.
I believe the name is meant to make me feel – bad?
Now I see the name is only used when those using it are unable to defend their own human nature and are being called out for it, by a woman.
I saw an interview with a prominent government official who was being called out for his treatment and words he’s used against women. The man’s rebuttal to the interviewer’s questions was “you only call me names when you can’t refute my position.” When the interviewer asked him about the women who were questioning his choices, he called them “Radical Feminists.”
What I saw: A man who wanted it one way, his way: He wants to do the name calling and not be held accountable for it. When held accountable, he does it again and labels someone, women, with something he thinks they should be offended by.
Thinking what? By calling them names, they’d what? Go away? Obviously, these people were raised by a mom who taught them to stand up to name callers and bullies. They were taught that when someone calls you a name, it is because they are ignorant.
Here’s my point. Sticks and stones may break my bones but your words are going to be used against you.
Here’s the Wikipedia definition of Radical Feminism:
And Here’s The Link To The Page, just so you can see for yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radical_feminism
Personally, I find the definition, the term and the idea completely acceptable.
