Hey, TIME: “Feminist” is Not Your Word to Ban


TIME has decided to include the word “feminist” in its annual “worst words” poll, alongside words like “bae,” “basic,” “turnt,” and “yaaasssss.”

“Feminist” is an important word, not a meme. In fact, millions of women and men around the world like you who believe in the social, economic, and political equality of all women identify as “feminist” – including Taylor Swift, who is currently on TIME’s cover.
