Who Says Feminism Can’t Make You Popular?

Amy (Karen Gillan) Checks Out Amy (in doll form)

Lately, I’ve been writing a lot about gender inequality with relation to the sci-fi and pop culture I enjoy. For some reason, it’s become the thing I need to be the most vocal about right now, probably because I’m working on a novel that deals very heavily with women being very vocal about what they think about the patriarchy. (note: “vocal” is an understatement) Also, I’ve reached an age (31 going on 32 in July) where I’m willing to take less shit. The thing is, when I decided to write about, for example, how the way Amy Pond was treated in the latest Doctor Who minisodes because of the skirt she was wearing was sexist, I thought people would think it boring. I wrote my article anyway, because it was something I needed to get off my chest, but I figured readers might be like “Feminism…YAWN.”

Boy was I wrong.

And then there was the time I decided to praise Sucker Punch as a positive film for women. In two parts.

As it turns out, feminism is a hotter topic than I thought, and made more people want to talk to me. Which is good. Engaging over an important topic is good. Even if one sometimes needs to engage with an internet troll or two.
