The F Word!

So alright, I use the title feminist to describe myself. As I was on PunkOttawa earlier today I decided to make a post asking about how many feminists were out there and I was kinda annoyed that there were people who, although believed in equal rights, wanted to be separated from the term. One person used said they would rather not be associated due to feminist extremists. Another person stated that they simply are just a human being and wished to remain unlabeled... pretensious but ok..

Anyway, doesn't really matter but it kinda urked me. I mean, rejecting a label, okay but rejecting a label because of a few bad apples? Is rejecting the word feminism not kinda working against the whole concept behind feminism?
