Must be a real thing. It’s got a hashtag

KB may well identify as a feminist, but as we know only too well those who identify as something very rarely are what they claim to be...

What that all about?

I’d rather be an #ImproperFeminist.

I'm not sure I'm radical enough yet to be a Proper Feminist, but if you know Kirsty, please let her know I'm working on it.

I'm minded of the quote 'well behaved women rarely make history'. And currently we're having to defend biology and language too.

I love how the ‘proper feminist’ gatekeeping thing always comes from the sort of people who under any other circumstances would be whining about the unfairness of ‘gatekeeping’... 🙄

Not Like The Other Feminists.

I'm in favour of definitions and boundaries and dont care about insults such as 'gatekeeping' which has suddenly become a Bad Thing.

Y Errol, I bet they all have their ‘well behaved women seldom make history’ tote bags and mugs.

I assumed that tweet was written by an SNP supporter who was about 14, not an actual grownup!

Got quite a shock reading this in the times today "Kirsty Blackman, the party’s former deputy leader in the Commons"
