What is Feminism?

I (Shaun-Charisse), have had some interesting conversations over the past week, in regard to the “Celebrate not denigrate” post.  It seems that some feel that it has a feminist view and that it made others uncomfortable.  Both women and men.  Why would both sexes respond negatively to perceived “feminism”? 

Feminism as defined by Merriam Webster (www.merriam-webster.com) is: 

1: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
2: organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests
 
Are we so inundated with marketing, social commentary and male-dominated views that we see an opposition to degrading advertising as political?  Besides “organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests” sounds pretty good to me.  As intelligent women, can we appreciate  an alternative to sexist images and content without fear of being seen as political?
Well reader,what say you?
