Labels make me uncomfortable

And this piece by Kate nicely lays out some points.

"Why I don't call myself a feminist any more"

"And it isn’t that my generation doesn’t need feminism anymore. It’s that we more acutely need people who will care less about the definition of a particular word, and more about the experiences that people are having. Less about body hair, and more about opportunity. Less about women being one thing or another, and more about everyone sharing the same set of responsibilities towards caring for a world we all participate in and are affected by"

Read it.  Good stuff.  Rock on, girls.
