I openly embrace the label of bad feminist. I do so because I am flawed and human. I am not terribly well versed in feminist history. I am not as well read in key feminists texts as I would like to be. I have certain … interests and personality traits and opinions that may not fall in line with mainstream feminism, but I am still a feminist. I can’t tell you how freeing it has been to accept this about myself.

When you can’t find someone to follow, you have to find a way to lead by example.
