Saying your not a feminist is saying that you do not believe in gender equality. There are plenty of women who say they’re not feminists while still enjoying the right to vote, own property (rather than being owned as property), obtain education, work outside the home in almost any field to which they may aspire (although still in some field not without significant barriers). I’m sure most would agree women deserve equal pay and access to birth control, that women have a right to justice when they have been sexually assaulted or the victim of parter abuse. Some women are so afraid of being seen as a dyke or man-hater that they instead internalize the hatred of women and reinforce a system that keeps us oppressed.
