Vote for Words to Ban in 2015

Feminism is on there. And it's winning.

I understand not everyone identifies as a feminist, but come on!

It's only the word feminism they object to, because it's so over used in such a lot of things. They say specifically that they don't object to feminism itself

I do think that feminism is being co-opted as an act of political cynicism and am frustrated by the politicians who wear those stupid t-shirts as their only act of feminism. If you are a feminist, you don't need to tell people endlessly, wear a t-shirt or make a huge song and dance about it unless you are actively doing something to make a difference. Those in power should be known for creating and supporting policies that give women a fair deal, not for bleating on about feminism whilst continuing to enjoy being a part of the old boys network.
