Er..i dont know what you mean by 'todays definition'. Sorry.Yes, we are.
I think my semi-rant went over some heads. I was raising the question as to whether or not that to give that response was to neglect the question (which it can in some cases).
"Are you a man or a woman?"
"I am a Christian."
To be a Christian, first off, is most important. However, by default, we still have to be one or the other -- man or woman. The question wasn't answered.
It doesn't matter. I was merely pointing out something I've seen a lot of, but responding "I'm a Christian" as an outside option in response isn't always wrong. If someone says "Are you pro-choice or pro-life?" Responding "I'm a Christian" ought to have the person asking say "Oh, OK -- so you're pro-life."
In asking "Are you a feminist," and responding "I'm a Christian," by today's definition, it should mean the person asking would say "Oh, so you are not a feminist."
And Ive never had someone ask me if I was a feminist. I think ppl could tell,just by looking at me im a woman and it would be a stupid question cos all women are female. What else would we say. If you asked a man that question he'd prolly go..uh..I love my wife..does that make me a feminist?
Maybe back in the 70s it was different. Or earlier. My country eas the first to give women the vote, and many of the women who campaigned for this were christians I believe. I dont really know for sure as I wasnt there. So dont quote me on that.
If you love women, and treat them as sisters then..does that make you a feminist? I personally think it s arguing a lot over nothing.
