“The Feminist”

Posted: October 22, 2010 by Jender in feminism isn't philosophy

I recently made the move from undergrad to grad. I came from a philosophy department that strongly supports a nuanced understanding of feminist philosophy. Moving into graduate level education, I was flabbergasted to find a female prof that was proud to be light years behind. Feminist contributions made their way into all of one of her lectures. She started the “feminist objections” section of the lecture with “feminists are suspicious of […].” Although I associate with a variety of philosophical schools of thought, I soon became identified as “the feminist”; a brand that quickly turns valid arguments into uppity rants.
