Why Feminism IS a Dirty Word.

You’re probably thinking how dare she! (or he). But let’s think about it, at the moment it is. Too many women disagree about what constitutes feminism. 

Take for instance the latest cele-bitchy argument involving none other than Miley Cyrus, Nikki Minaj, Kim Kardashian and Rashida Jones whereby Jones has taken it upon herself to call out the other three celebs as ‘whores’ for their near nude trend setting.

Jones tweeted ‘This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular.

Whilst the use of bitch, slut and whore by the female population may have originated as a political move, probably third wave feminist, but has it gone too far when it amounts to actual slut shaming?

I would argue that part of the reason why feminism is in such a mess is that no one can actually agree on what it entails (and that is even if they are one of the few who actually know what it means). I mean, there are some that capitalise the word feminism to read as Feminism.

So I ask the question, how can we expect anyone to get what we are on about if we cannot even agree?
