AIBU to think that scoffing lemon drizzle cake and shagging toyboys is a feminist act?

Because I enjoy doing both and I'm a self-declared feminist, so it must be, right?

Or is that just a fucking stupid way to look at the world?

Because just because you think you're a feminist and you like doing something, that doesn't mean that every single thing you ever do, from eating cornflakes to dancing the tango, is feminist.

It's lacking in critical thinking and common sense, to think it is.

IMO.

YANBU. I know exactly where you're coming from (naming no names Ellie--Levenson--)

OK - I have missed what this is about <<thick>>

Linky?

AliceHurled Wed 21-Mar-12 20:03:47

Depends Basil. Did you choose it in a vacuum? And does it make you empowered? If so, then you go girl!

MrFluffy Wed 21-Mar-12 20:03:55

Well it's your choice and therefore it must be feminist in nature. Yep. No doubt about it.

<facepalm>

Basil honey! Don't you know that once you out yourself as a feminist, every single thing you do is a feminist act, from declogging the bath in a surly manner to drawing horns on pictures of Hugh Heffner.

Once we're inside your head you can't get us out..... it's part of the feminist conspiracy for world domination grin

Is this about the Anne summers thread? Not read it for several hours

What if it's dark chocolate and syrup cornflake crispies? And the toy boy is at his own house tonight but you're shagging him tomorrow?

<hopeful>

BasilFoulTea Wed 21-Mar-12 20:14:14

nom nom scoff scoff shag shag

<all done in very feministy way>

FrothyDragon Wed 21-Mar-12 20:16:42

Of course it is!

Although I substitute the lemon drizzle cake for tubs of Ben and Jerry's.

SinicalSanta Wed 21-Mar-12 20:18:13

Only if the man did the baking while you stood on his neck with your stiletto.
Feminism has gone too far if you ask me

AliceHurled Wed 21-Mar-12 20:18:27

Yes Ben and Jerrys, frothy I agree. Cos what you done there is included men too, and that makes it more feminist I think.

NormaStanleyFletcher Wed 21-Mar-12 20:22:08

OK - I am obviously invisible sad

FrothyDragon Wed 21-Mar-12 20:22:11

grin

On a side note, was VERY pleased to see Ben and Jerry's are supporting gay marriage. so, that's a double thumbs up for them...

AliceHurled Wed 21-Mar-12 20:23:33

I see you Norma, but don't know the answer.

SinicalSanta Wed 21-Mar-12 20:23:52

you lot are overthinkibg it. They're just cake flavours. She should be Free to eat ant flavour she likes. Whatever happened to personal choice? I like carrot and walnut <challenge face>

SinicalSanta Wed 21-Mar-12 20:25:28

Stupid stupid phone with your stupid typos

AliceHurled Wed 21-Mar-12 20:28:10

What's wrong with ant flavour? I like it, specially if it has the little chewy chocolate covered ants in it.

FrothyDragon Wed 21-Mar-12 20:29:50

Stop being Antist, Sinical...

I don't think it's related to the Ann Summer's thread. But stopped looking.

ElephantsAreMadeOfElements Wed 21-Mar-12 20:30:32

But equally YWNBU to be pissed off if someone insisted that scoffing lemon drizzle cake in the privacy of your own home was an anti feminist act.
