Feminism and the Dictionary
I looked up feminism in the Dictionary (Merriam-Webster app). It gave two examples: 1) “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities”, and 2) “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”. While at first glance, this seems like a good definition, they class it as a theory or belief, which degrades it to second class status. If the dictionary can’t get it right, how are we to make progress?? (italics are mine) This is, in my opinion, just a hint of how deep the problem is.
