Feminism. It's a word in the English dictionary. It has a stable, objective meaning. We'd all agree, for example, that it does not mean "cowboy" or "vivorum" or "复杂性" or "σκεῦος." And yet, are you neutral in your understanding of "feminism"? Doesn't the word (and your use of it in writing or in speaking or even in reading and in listening) immediately cause you to participate in its force, subjectively? "No, I am not a feminist," you might protest. And most of us would, likely, agree with you. But then we all -- each one of us -- could get into an argument over who "is" a feminist and who is not a feminist. Among self identifying feminists, this happens regularly, so that there are "waves" and there are kinds ("afrafeminism" and "womanism" and "academic" feminism and so forth) and there are memories of Mary Daly post mortem in which she's a "dangerous" or a "radical" or a "theological" or a "no longer representative of me and my sort of" feminist. The safest definition of the word "feminist" I have found so far is "a supporter of feminism." But what if a true "feminist" could care less about "feminism" per se? Feminism cares about feminism? You get the point of my personal questions, don't you? There's an inclusivity in the questions whether you're finding yourself on the outside or the inside of this word "feminism." These are rhetorical questions, aren't they?
Rhetoric. You know what that word means, don't you?
Translation. As with feminism and rhetoric, translation begs for experts. You can get a Ph.D. in it. And if you have less than that, well then, what other kind of training is necessary to talk about it, or to do it "right" and not wrong?
Bible. If we all could agree that it really means βιβλία [biblía] "books," then there would be so much less disagreement, right? We might not have to define biblioblogger or learn to read Alexa ratings or to count down from 50 or to count women so delicately if we're not one or so vigorously even if we are one or to "draft criteria for inclusion in" or to pronounce "niche" correctly. It might not matter so much whether someone else includes me or you so much or not. Alas. words. I know what they mean but then they change, change you, change me.
