Though definitions may vary according to personal belief, the following definitions are given for the purpose of this blog.
Feminism: The understanding that women are of equal value to me, that inspires action to rectify imbalance, injustice, lack of opportunity or unfair treatment toward girls and women in any and every area of life where it is found.
Feminist: An individual who self-identifies as a Feminist because he or she believes in gender equality.
Humanism: The belief that humans are capable of solving problems on the basis of sound reasoning, scientific and empirical evidence without resorting to a religious argument of morality. This blog is not a religious forum and may be visited by atheists, agnostics, pagans, christians, buddhists or any other person of any religious or spiritual faith.
Equalitism: The understanding that every human being is of equal value to every other human being, that inspires action to rectify imbalance, injustice, lack of opportunity or unfair treatment toward any person in any and every area of life where it is found.
: A person who self-identifies as an Equalitist because they believe in equality and do not hold personal bias toward action for one marginalised group over other marginalised groups.
person who self-identifies as an Equalitist Secondarily because they believe in equality for all, recognize the need for action and when opportunity arises will support that movement while their own primary focus is given to a particular marginalised group.
The writer of this blog, Bastet, identifies primarily as a Feminist and secondarily as an Equalitist. I do not personally identify as a humanist but recognize the need for intellectual debate to be separated from religious/spiritual faiths.
