Radical Notion is a feminist blog dedicated to giving women a voice. We believe women should have a space to share their personal stories regarding sexism, patriarchy, & misogyny. We also address sexism in society & culture.
The title, Radical Notion, is a tongue-in-cheek, semi-sarcastic reference to the quote, “Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.” It shouldn’t be so radical, but it is, and we’re working to change that.
I’m an 18-year-old writer living in Colorado, and I’m also an accidental feminist. I believed in the cause before I even knew it had a name. I don’t know everything there is to know about it, but I want to make a difference. When I’m not ranting about social justice, I really enjoy watching TV shows. (And sometimes I talk about the sexism I find there, too.) I’m also a novelist. Basically? Fictional characters are my jam. You can find me on Twitter at @skyofthetiger.
I have always had feminist notions but until a few months ago they were smothered by the patriarch and fundamentalism. I now call myself a Jesus Feminist and am taking steps towards becoming my own person instead of forming my soul into my parents “perfect stay at home daughter” mold. I am still learning about feminism and figuring out my views on it. Since I am still living at my parents house, I use the pseudonym Ariela when writing about feminist matters. When not silently judging my ultra-conservative brother, I can be found writing [and reading] fiction and poetry, fangirling over various TV shows, attempting yoga, and planning world domination with Loki. Oh, and when I get particularly mad over an issue, I turn into the Angry Feminist Otter. Also, I blog at Ariela Roars.
