are you a feminist? so you're not going to get married or what? slightly confused...

I am definitely a feminist. And you are right that I, personally, do not plan to get married, but I’m not against other people choosing that path forĀ themselvesĀ either. My being a feminist, and simultaneously feeling like I don’t need a piece of paper to define my relationship are not necessarily consequential to each other; they’re just two facts about myself.

You can certainly still be a feminist and get married if you’d like. Is that why you were asking? I can’t say that I know if you were referencing something on my blog, and what it is that you are slightly confused about. :-)
