    I really should have read the thread but I know in these type of threads there are usually a handful of anti feminists....

    In a perfect, equitable world I would agree. we don't live in a perfect, equitable world though.

    I consider myself to NOT be a feminist as I am anti-abortion and pro-sex workers

    Feminism by basic definition is about equality so advocating for equality isn't isolating us or hurting the equality agenda- its the same agenda

    I don't think either of those things excludes you being a feminist. Feminism is about women and men being equal. Anti abortion is a whole other can of worms. And pro sex workers- well there are male and female sex workers- I assume you want their rights, pay and safety assured? Sounds pretty feminist to me

    I also consider myself anti abortion but still pro choice for others. I don't agree with the sex industry but I support people's right to choose that profession and the right to work in a safe regulated environment.

    I still consider myself a feminist not saying you have to, just that like in any group, there are diverse beliefs within them.

    Lots of feminists support sex workers. I've read of feminists who think it's a great thing because it's the one industry where female workers outearn male workers and some believe that it holds a lot of power.

    I wouldn't say I'm "pro sex workers" but I'm certainly not necessarily against.

    Yep 3rd wave feminists believe women being able to show their femininity sexually, means empowerment. That it is the last bastion of taboo for women's rights.

    I'm not sure I entirely agree, or disagree with that, but that's what they subscribe to.

    I too am pro sex industry and I used to beleive people who said you can't be a feminist. You can. I don't care what a few people think the checklist is for feminism. In fact there are a few feminist books around about why porn is a good thing lol. I dislike people such as Melinda tankard (not everything she says but some of it) and I don't fit the stereotypes of a feminist. My mum does however, she is very old school, complete with underarm hair lol.. we disagree all the time.. its kind of like bubhub but we are definitely both pro feminism
