Is this what feminists are looking like these days?

Does anyone else find this amusing? As I was leaving school today, I noticed that the Law School's Feminist Club was having a bake sale to raise funds. Maybe next time they can earn some money by charging there fellow students a small fee for painting their fingernails or for cleaning their kitchens.

I don't know if they are serious or not, but if they are the GW law anarchists are also quite amusing.

Maybe I'm seeing irony too easy these days, but it seems odd that these so-called anarchists are studying to be lawyers.

I wonder if they put their club membership on their resume when they are applying for a $135K/year job at Hogan & Hartson.

What was REALLY funny was the guy manning the Feminist Club's desk, reading his corporations book, selling his brownies.

Because I'm sure that when he's general counsel for Wal-Mart, the oh-so feminist friendly corporate culture, he'll remember fondly his brownie-selling days for the feminist club. And then he'll advise them on how to win the sexual harrassment lawsuit.

1) Yeah... I have a tough time swallowing anarchists who are slaving through law school too. Seems to be more an image they are seeking than anything.

2) Perhaps they're REAL  feminists. It seems to me that true feminists wouldn't have a problem with a bake sale. It shouldn't be the idea of women as homemakers per se that they oppose, but they idea of women as ONLY homemakers. I dislike people looking down on homemakers as much as I dislike people looking down on women who choose to pursue a career. I'll support my wife in whatever she wants to do.

Let's run with Marc's theory:

the feminist club bake sale is the perfect example of REAL FEMINISM.

1) they had a GUY "manning" their bake sale... (pun intended). they didnt even have to sit their at the table to sell the cookies. Sweet deal.

2) the baked goods weren't homemade, they were store bought (the ones I saw were costco brownies and cookies). No more stereotyped "woman's place is in the kitchen".

But anyway, Marc is right, that the TRUE feminism is that women do not have exclusive binary spheres, either inside OR outside the home.

That's what Brother Brigham thought!

I'd go with Marc's reasoning, but if you go to school there, you can always ask them ;)

I just give bonus points to Chris for the two pictures on the original post. Nice addition.
