If you're not allergic to the idea of equality, and have benefitted from that idea yourself relative to people in the past, then it doesn't really matter. It's a silly label, and silly only because all labels are when you get down to it. But feminism in it's own right deserves a little respect and we are all attached to its principles to some respect, unless we came out of something that was not a woman. I didn't want to lecture - I just wanted to stand up for good ideas in the face of what looked like a bit of unwarranted stigma, especially when - yeah - you were espousing a smidgeon of feminist values.
I say we go with an approach of equality. All sports do it ancient Greek style!
