PSA: there is no such thing as a “real” feminist. If a woman chooses to label herself as a feminist, she has every single right to do so. It is in the very nature of feminism to support a women’s right to choose how she is perceived in society. Not to mention that we could use all the support we can get RN.

But you’ll sing a different tune when one of the abundant man hating, transphobic, radfems claims to be a feminists.

It’s interesting that you say this, because when I wrote this post it was in response to a radfem who had claimed a certain girl had “no right” to call herself a true feminist because she was also men’s rights friendly. I was simply trying to make the point that just because someone wears nail polish or likes to shave their legs or is sympathetic to men’s struggles with sexism, does not make then any less of a feminist than you say you are.

So even if she’s a racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, bigot, you would still want to be associated with her?

Of course I wouldn’t want to be associated with someone like that. Although I personally would not want to be associated with this person, I wouldn’t have the audacity to tell them that they weren’t allowed to label them self a feminist based on my limited view of what “correct” feminism should look like.
It’s important to maybe talk with that person and understand why they believe what they believe and try to explain to them the importance of an open mind. Not to mention the fact that the chances of a person with those beliefs also being a feminist are highly slim.
