Time may banish word feminist

The NY Daily News reports:
In its fourth annual “word banishment poll,” Time magazine has proposed getting rid of the word “feminist,” arguing that the label is too easily thrown around by celebrities.

“You have nothing against feminism itself, but when did it become a thing that every celebrity had to state their position on whether this word applies to them, like some politician declaring a party?” wrote Katy Steinmetz. “Let’s stick to the issues and quit throwing this label around like ticker tape at a Susan B. Anthony parade.”

The sometimes-controversial moniker was stuck between hollow words like “basic,” “bossy,” “obvi” and “bae.”
