Radical feminist isn't an insult. It's what I am lol. It's only insulting if you think being a feminist is degrading.

Yes, I know... average society uses it as an insult, however, because they see being a feminist is degrading. which is what the post linked was about.

This has gotta be generational (possibly also racial or regional).

I've never heard anything remotely close to RF-as-insult. In fact, the only times I've heard it other than as a self-ID or confirmation from the radfem Woman herself were instances of "omg you're a radfem! hey Sister!" from others delighted to come across a fellow radfem in the wild.

And meanwhile everyone's just focusing on how to make terms like btch and whre "empowering" instead of feminism.
