I used to cringe at the sound of the “F” word. It is a word exclaimed – not just said – under the most undesirable circumstances, such as when your finger gets caught in the door.

No, I’m not talking about the four-letter expletive. Neither am I talking about Steve Anderson’s documentary in which various people experimented with pronouncing the afore-mentioned word in different ways (and do little else, I might add).
I’m talking about “feminism.”
