The evolutions of the “F-word”

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.

When a group of Laurier Brantford students and faculty formed the F-Word Committee last year, they gave the phrase “‘F’word” a whole new meaning – one that has made the word a proud member of students’ daily lexicon.

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.”
