It's kind of like having a full-time job on top of having a regular job, because you're constantly having to watch your back and educate yourself and others on what lawmakers/the Internet/the general voting public is doing to undo certain unalienable rights. Like most woman's work, a feminist's work is never done.

Sounds crazy, right? Well, welcome to Feminism 101, a place where even the most insane ideas are treated as reality.
