Are you a feminist? It’s a pretty simple inquiry, but there are a lot of people who have trouble answering. Maybe they think it’s more complicated than it really is, but for the record, it’s not a trick question; hell, even the pope is a feminist, now! Let’s recap, reiterate and remember, if you feel confused, there exists this handy chart:
Easy peasy, right? In fact, in a recent survey of a few famous fellas, most of the men had no trouble answering whether or not they are feminists.
Han Solo Harrison Ford understands how simple the question is:
Denis O’Hare eloquently goes the the extra mile.
Darren Aronofsky is flabbergasted anyone would even have to ask.
But Anthony Mackie, well…apparently he continues to struggle with expressing his thoughts publicly.
Mackie certainly isn’t alone in not exactly understanding the simplicity of the term, but at least Michael Stuhlbarg gives himself the benefit of the doubt.

Look guys, you’re overcomplicating this. Salman Rushdie sums it up nicely.
“Yes. What else is there to be? Everything else is being an asshole.”
