What does “Feminism” mean to you?

As a member of #TeamHumanity I hold the belief that Feminism means that the Earth-Suit I inhabit is inherently no better or worse than any other Earth-Suit (and that we are Spirit 1st, Mind 2nd & Body 3rd)

As an American of #AfricanAncestry I hold the belief that Feminism means that I won’t get painted with behavior that I didn’t brush (and that my shade of brown has no intrinsic impact in relation to your shade of brown)

As the proud Son of an #LGBT Father I hold the belief that Feminism means that I can Love my Dad publicly and know that his opportunities will be no different than mine!

& As a former #UclaBruin and Professional Athlete (steeped in the tradition of Coach Wooden and Jackie Robinson) I hold the belief that Feminism means that I can compete at the highest level on the field (Athletically) & off the field (Academically & Empathically)

Having been raised by a Psych PhD Mother (who happened to be an American Female of African-Ancestry) I’ve learned that #Feminism means sense & sensibility without fatalism…but with…manifest destiny.

Feminism is Power, Feminism is Strength, Feminism is Empathy & knowing when to pull back from the brink. Feminism is Your humanity and Feminism is mine, Feminism is Team-Humanity & I HAVE A DREAM that one day when we see the Oneness (as a ‘race’ of humans) we’ll be just FINE 😉 #TheFWord
